Birthlight Mother & Baby Yoga

Birthlight Baby Yoga - a gentle approach

These lovely classes are just as much for mum as they are for baby. Yoga postures open the chest, shoulders and lengthen the spine relieving tension, aches and pains. Postnatal yoga strengthens and stabilize the pelvis after birth, helping your body recover more quickly. Baby is stimulated in a playful, calm and nurturing environment with gentle touch and movements that help them to reach their developmental milestones at their own pace. Yoga helps strengthen and open their bodies, the perfect antidote to too much time in car seats and pushchairs. Yoga also promotes good sleep patterns and relieves symptoms of colic, as internal organs are gently stimulated, aiding and improving digestion.

All classes end with a wonderful relaxation session – a state of deep rest equivalent to two hours sleep. What are you waiting for?!
