Breathe, move, relax
Postnatal yoga offers you an opportunity to build physical strength and learn breathwork and relaxation techniques to help you thrive – a safe space to support your journey through motherhood.
Classes restart in September. Come back soon for more details!
Build strength from the inside out
My classes offer the FEDANT and Yoga Alliance accredited LushTums method. We focus on building the connection between your breath and the pelvic floor and tuning in to learn how your mind and body feel after birth. Our philosophy is to proceed with caution, taking into account your pregnancy and birth history, we focus on strengthening and stretching out those aches and pains from awkward sleeping, feeding and carrying positions.
Well deserved R&R&R!
This is your time to rest, relax and replenish. We practice breathwork techniques to calm the nervous system alongside restorative yoga poses leaving you ready to take on whatever twists and turns your journey through motherhood takes. Essential techniques to cope with the mental and emotional demands of motherhood.
Precious time to bond with baby
While the emphasis is on time for yourself we listen to the needs of the babies, adapting the class to suit their moods and including lovely songs and baby massage to keep them feeling connected with you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s some more information on my postnatal classes but if there’s anything you don’t see answered please do not hesitate to contact me.
How soon can I attend postnatal classes?
Once you have had your six week (vaginal birth) or eight week (caesarean birth) check you are very welcome to join the classes.
What age can baby attend until?
I generally find that once babies are on the move the enjoyment of the class is reduced for them and Mum! So normally around 8 months.
What do I need to bring?
I want the experience of postnatal yoga to be as relaxing as possible and so I provide most of the equipment needed – I know you have enough to worry about when leaving the house with a small babe! I recommend that you bring:
- Blanket for baby to lie on
- Blanket to support yourself and make certain positions more comfortable
- Any toys or snacks you might need to entertain your baby
Mats are provided but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
How much do the classes cost?
The next block starts on Monday 20th June – a 5 class block priced at £55.
When and where are the classes held?
Monday 10:00 – 11:15am, Sturminster Marshall Memorial Hall
Just 10 mins from Wimborne and Corfe Mullen, 15 minutes from Broadstone and Blandford.
Plenty of free parking available.
“Thank you for making us feel so welcome, and ensuring I didn’t need to stress when baby needed anything. Great to have equipment provided too, there are so many things to remember to bring when leaving the house!”
