Prenatal yoga is a unique yoga experience, incorporating yoga postures and breathing techniques to help you connect with your baby, alleviate discomforts, and lower stress levels. Expect to flow through a series of standing poses, followed by restorative floor work, designed to open and strengthen the muscles, which are essential for labour and postnatal recovery. Join a nurturing and positive community, all transitioning into the role of motherhood. All prenatal classes are taught by highly qualified prenatal yoga teachers. For Mums only.
This offering of yoga is specifically to empower mothers to find their inner and outer alignment, whether they are newly postpartum or if it's been many years since having their child. The magnificent birthing process puts tremendous stress on the female body that, in some instances, does not seem recoverable. Postnatal yoga, however, offers a gentle way to rebuild the pelvic floor, stabilise the core, close diastasic recti, flatten the mummy tummy and reestablish strength and flexibility of both body and mind. These classes integrate simple hatha yoga asanas with safe and intentional postnatal exercises, aimed at rehabilitating and empowering mothers to live in their vibrancy and totality. For Mums only.
Mums & Bubs Yoga
Mums & Bubs focuses on healing and strengthening the body postpartum, as well as introducing a special mother and child bond. This classes focuses on strengthening the pelvic floor, abdomen, legs and back; as well as opening and relieving tension in the shoulders, necks and arms. Mums & Bubs is also a great way for new mums to connect with other new mums and find meaningful connection through the shared experience of motherhood. This class is ideal for babies 4 weeks to 12 months (or any crawling age). Dads are welcome.
Toddler Yoga (18m-3yr)
Toddler Yoga (18m-3yr) is an ideal time to begin a yoga practice as their young minds are naturally creative and curious. This class inspires children to use their imagination to teach them about nature and the environment, helping them to learn about the world through their bodies, which develops their innate ability to listen, observe and imagine. We welcome parents to facilitate this journey, providing the child an extra level of comfort.
Breath techniques will also be taught via creative and inspired methods. A short period of relaxation encourages them to close their eyes, as they learn to self regulate and prepare for meditation. Role-playing, partner games, and make believe will foster a sense of self belief, and discipline, as well as inspire them to become more connected with their innate awareness.
Kids Yoga (4-11)
Kids Yoga (4-11) introduces yoga poses, breathing techniques, visualisation, and deep relaxation to help improve the learning abilities of school-aged children. In this class, we will focus on developing flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination, as we promote the development of self confidence by encouraging the child's imagination and self-expression. Children will learn effective communication and good listening skills, which in turn fosters self-respect, compassion and kindness for others.
Teen Yoga (11-16)
Teen Yoga is a practice aimed at supporting young adults to develop physical awareness, tune inwards to learn to balance emotions and promote self appreciation in their otherwise changing and emotionally charged universe. Teen Yoga provides an opportunity to nurture a practice of asana (poses), pranayama (breath) and an understanding of yoga philosophy appropriate for their age. Suitable for age 11-16 years old. This is a non heated class.
