Rainbow Yoga - for Mother & Baby
These classes have been developed by Louise who has a wealth of experience working with the voice in local community choirs and most recently as a yoga teacher. The classes have been designed for both mother and baby to take part in together, with Yoga stretches and poses for mom that involves baby too. The class will help to develop the Mother's body strength as well using the voice to soothe and connect with your baby and to improve both parent and babies mental wellbeing in a relaxed friendly, natural environment.
The classes are designed to help improve and develop:
Breath - The first few months after child birth are sometimes difficult and the right breathing techniques can really help. Learning different breathing techniques can have a massive impact on our nervous systems and help us to calm and relax. Singing is also included in the class as this provides an opportunity to bond and further help you harness the power of breath.
Body - The class will take you through a number of postures, stretching and strengthening Poses will help you to reconnect with your body and work through suitable asanas to improve tone and flexibility and will be post-partum appropriate. There will be a focus on the spine and shoulders to help cope with the physical demands of feeding and carrying a baby.
Mind - Finding space in the body to relax, using breathing techniques and singing can all lead to a calmer mind. Relaxation techniques help you cope with less sleep.
Babies will be involved throughout on their backs, tummies or held in arms. It will provide a gentle and warm environment to bond and connect with your baby. Singing will be gentle and relaxed with simple chants and lullabies.
Classes are informal and relaxed, allowing the opportunity to feed, change, comfort or soothe your baby to sleep whenever necessary. This class is available to all new mums with babies aged 6 weeks to 9 months old (or pre-crawling). No previous experience of yoga is necessary.
