Your body has birthed a baby. How are you feeling? Are you taking time for YOU? To meet your body where it’s at, right now?
It can be SO tempting to want to jump into all the things you did prenatally. Unfortunately, for our postpartum bodies we can create long term damages by doing vigorous exercise and fitness too soon.
This class will be focused on creating space (do you have upper back and neck pain?) and building back core strength (yes, postnatal yoga can do that).
Babies are welcome to come to class, but this class will be focused on YOU!
AND if you’re wanting a class that will open your chest, alleviate upper back pain while building core strength? This is the class for you, even if you’re 10 years postpartum or have never had a baby.
Postnatal Yoga can begin as soon as you have your baby.. by wait for it… breathing! Try diaphragmatic breaths to take care of your scar tissue, so reawaken your pelvic floor and to start to draw your core back together.
You can take our Postanatal Yoga Class as soon as you feel ready for more movement. As with all of our classes, most people start taking class around 4-6 weeks. However, you are more than welcome to attend class at whatever stage of life you are in!
Absolutely! There are a few things to keep in mind if you attend a regular yoga class after birth.
Avoid big openers across your belly (like camel pose and full wheel)
Avoid crunching your abdominal wall (like leg lifts, bicycles, crunches, sit ups
Don’t jump in too fast. After birth, your placenta leaves a wound inside your uterus the size of a DINNER PLATE! If you had a wound this big where you could see it, you definitely would be waiting for that to heal before doing anything too vigorous. If you notice yourself bleeding, that is your body’s way of telling you.. “hey… I’m not ready yet. please, slow things down so I can heal”.
