Postnatal Yoga is specifically adapted to women's bodies after birth. It helps "new" mothers recovering after birth and finding their new balance.

In a postnatal yoga class we start by using simple techniques to close the body and regain core strength - always working with the pelvic floor to recover and rebuild it.

We then move into more dynamic poses and movements which help build up endurance and improve general health. Relaxation and breathing exercises are a very important part of the class to release tension and helps to calm the nervous system and relieve stress.

It is recommended to take the Postnatal 5 class card to benefit from the progression of exercises in the classes over five sessions.

Bringing your baby with you to the class means that the bonding process is going on. The babies will be included in some exercises in order to learn how to integrate yoga in your everyday life. On the other hand babies enjoy observing their mothers and often relax during the class because of the soothing and cozy atmosphere.

It is also a wonderful place to share tips and information between the mothers:)

Please bring your own blanket for your baby.

Prenatal yoga facilitates a healthy mental, physical and emotional transition from woman to mother, aids in the bonding process with the baby and prepares the body and the spirit for the upcoming birth. The class explores fitness with movements that are safe for the pregnant body and also designed specifically to strengthen muscles needed for childbirth. To help stimulate emotional well-being in both mother and child we also do breathing exercises and a guided relaxation as part of each class. Along the way we share tips and tricks to help you throughout the pregnancy and also as a new mother after the birth.
