Whether your baby is asleep or awake, new mamas can partake in this yoga class with their little ones!
Breathing Room’s Mommy and Me Yoga Series features six weeks of classes designed to allow Mum to move her body in ways that will stimulate circulation, counteract the repetitive positions a mother holds when naturally caring for her baby along with some strengthening postures to encourage the body to come back into post-baby alignment. The body only truly comes back into balance once a mother has come to the end of her breast-feeding regimen, but there is a lot that can be done to better support Mum at this time.
In this series, many poses can be done with baby in your arms and while on the floor alongside baby. Saskia looks forward to supporting you in this new chapter of parenthood!
