Mums and Bubs

Specially designed to support women from the early post natal period.
Tuesdays 11.45 to 12.45pm
Fridays 10.45 to 11.45am.

It’s yoga for YOU, but baby comes too for some special time together, breathing, moving and relaxing.
So often all of your energy is focused on looking after your newborn at a time when it is so important to look after yourself.

Each class includes:

  • Yoga postures that restore energy and release tension in the neck, shoulders and back.
  • Supported, gentle movements and breathing to gently reconnect with the deep abdominal muscles and pelvic floor.
  • Relaxation, time to nourish tired bodies and minds and bond with your baby.
  • Time to meet other local women and share experiences.
  • Emotional and physical support for mums facing the challenges of early motherhood

Suitable for women who have recently given birth, including those who had a c-section.
You can join these classes as soon after your birth as you feel ready.
No previous yoga experience required.
You can use any class credits remaining from pregnancy yoga.

These classes are taught by Helen Macnair who has been working with women and their new babies for over 20 years.

“Finding a rhythm with a new bub takes time and patience and a focus on prioritising sleep!
Being gentle with yourself.
It is such a full on job.
In these classes the focus is on nurturing you.
Yes, we will do some pelvic floor and abdominal muscle connecting.
We will use the breath to relax and move away from the instinctive but exhausting new mum ‘high alert’ place we all shift into.
But most importantly, I want to offer you a safe, relaxed space to come to each week with your baby.
An easy, breezy place to meet and connect with other new mums.
Time to be with your baby – just being. Nothing else to do.
You can feed, change nappies, chat, lie down … whatever you feel like.
I will guide you though a gentle, effective practise, supporting you, helping with bub as much as I can so you feel like you’ve had a bit of a break.
Babies sometimes cry.
Sometimes they sleep.
Sometimes they feed.
We go with the flow.
So not to worry if bub is restless.
Just come along and be amongst friends.”
