Mom & Baby YOGA FOR TWOT
(For Moms and babies, 6 weeks to crawling toooo much to do yoga!)
This multi-level postpartum yoga class
is specifically designed to strengthen your body after giving birth,
and allow you to practice yoga with your baby. You will regain the
strength of your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, develop inner
and outer strength, and meet other new moms and babies.
How soon after birth can I start practicing yoga again?
You can start
taking the Mom & Baby YOGA FOR TWOT as soon as you have
the O.K. from your doctor to resume physical activity. This is usually
after the visit to your OB/GYN or Midwife at five or six weeks postpartum.
are the classes run? Will it matter if my baby cries?
Classes are very relaxed, and accommodate
the needs of both mother and baby. If your baby is asleep, then
we let the baby sleep while you practice yoga. If a baby needs to
be fed, you can stop and feed your baby (we have exercises for you
to do while you do this). If your baby is awake, we position you
so that you are in their face as much as possible (nothing
makes a baby happier)! We practice some poses which allow you to
use your baby as resistance, or added weight, to help build strength.
We teach you some therapeutic massage and baby yoga techniques,
which you can also use at home. And, we always include some baby
songs and chants!
