POSTNATAL YOGA – 6 week course 

Sundays 12.45 – 1.45pm starting 28 April – 2 June

Each week will have a different focus from looking at the impact of pregnancy and birth on your body, on all levels, and identifying areas to strengthen and soften. Finding a community to share and feel the support of other women in the same place.  To gain a deeper understanding of yourself and to give some time to stop and relax, re-rejuvenate and strengthen the body again.  The topics range from the wellbeing of mama and some self care tactics, common baby issues with natural healing strategies, a focus on strengthening the pelvic floor, assessing the posture of mama and general restorative yoga practices. All classes will include a physical yoga practice suited to new mums. The course is for mums only 🙂
