Prenatal yoga balances both strength and works on stretching out tight spaces in the body to support and balance the ever changing body of the birthing parent. Classes include key elements to quieting the breath and mind which can benefit both during pregnancy and during labour. Customize your prenatal classes to include birthing prep (including cesarean birth prep), prepping for birth anxiety, moving through past traumatic birth experiences, prep for postpartum mood disorder and tips, mindfulness around growing family dynamics, as well as tailored poses and movement for uncomfortable pregnancy related concerns, including attempting to turn a breached baby through Spinning Babies® techniques.
Postpartum Yoga (6 weeks +)
Yoga specifically for the birthing parent after delivery, this class can be customized for education and movement specialized towards your diverse needs such as pelvic floor support, adjustments and modifications, problem areas after birth and slowly rebuilding your practice to support the foundation back into your body. These classes are best suited once cleared by your birth provider and/or pelvic floor physiotherapist.
Postpartum Yoga & Mindfulness (day 3 + *)
Yoga through movement is not suggested before your 6th week; however there are many parts of yoga that can still be completely beneficial for parents suffering from mood disorders and postpartum blues. These can include Yoga Nidra (also known as sleep yoga), Restorative yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation.
*These sessions should still be run by your birthing professional before signing up.
My parent & Me classes
Baby and me classes are geared specifically to building a relationship between baby and parent. Building attachment builds better brains. These classes can be made customization towards either parenting mindfulness or baby and parent interactions such as song, movement and games.
These classes are supportive towards your child(ren) from birth until three years old.
Yoga is an amazing way to build bonds and set guidance for children and their parent(s). These classes are super customizable! Fantastic for ages 3+.
