About baby yoga
Baby yoga encourages relaxation and bonding for mum and baby and helps parents read baby’s cues. Mum and baby become more aware of their own bodies.
It helps both mum and baby to overcome common problems post-birth. For example, parents learn ways to support babies with issues such as colic and constipation, while mums learn appropriate postnatal exercises. It can help overcome tiredness and may help with postnatal depression.
Parents may feel increases in confidence and self-esteem, as well as helping with weak pelvic floor muscles and back pain, through gentle stretching.
