Mum and Baby classes are designed for the post-natal body with an aim to gentle re-build the body from inside out following pregnancy. For mum, classes will focus on strengthening the body particularly the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, posture and releasing some the tension that frequently builds up in new mums around the shoulder and neck area with regular periods of feeding.
Incorporated into the class will be baby yoga and baby massage which have countless benefits for baby. Practicing these techniques can be relaxing for both baby and parent (ideal for bedtime routine) while also being an excellent bonding experience. Additionally, baby yoga and baby massage can help with baby’s development in terms of balance, co-ordination and movement and develops muscle tone. There are also simple techniques which can help soothe common complaints such as wind and colic.
