What is Mum & Baby Yoga and how does it benefit my baby?

A Mum & Baby Yoga class stimulates all the senses for baby, and gives mum a good stretch, regaining strength and a has a chance to spend some quality one-to-one time with baby.  With the combination of movement, play, touch and singing, yoga improves the function of all of the baby's bodily systems. We practice moves which help to encourage crawling, which is a hugely important neurological developmental milestone in a baby's life. The class builds muscular strength in neck, chest and shoulders through tummy time, encourages crawling, develops binocular vision, and develops the crucially important balance system. Yoga with baby can also be very effective in helping to release excess wind and digestive discomfort. It's also an extremely tiring class for baby! 

 

Post natal exercises for mum are included in this class, which focus on strengthening the pelvic floor, abdominals and back muscles, as well as shoulder and chest stretches and openers. Coming along to a Mum & Baby Yoga class is a wonderful opportunity to engage with baby one-to-one, during these precious first few months of life, learning how to read baby’s communication cues and of course is a great way to meet new friends. We end the class with a gorgeous relaxation, so mum & baby are super chilled leaving :)

 

The class is suitable for mum post 6 weeks. If you are pre-6 weeks post-partum, please call Helen to discuss suitability. Babies of all ages are welcome and can attend until baby is actively crawling and showing signs of readiness to walk.

 

Please bring along a yoga mat & little blanket for baby.
