Life for a new mum is extremely hectic, sleep patterns are interrupted, hormone’s are all out of balance, no time to yourself and a new body shape to contend with, it’s no wonder a new mum can feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster, again. It is a time of joy, extreme happiness, elation, exhaustion and tears.
Yoga practice is very beneficial after pregnancy helping a new mum to gain strength and stamina, release built up tension and also giving mum some much needed ‘me’ time. The postures will help to re-align your posture, relieve back pain and strengthen your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Breathing and relaxation techniques alleviate feelings of stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.
Babies are welcome in Core Yoga postnatal yoga classes and we look at good practices of lifting and carrying baby, breathing techniques to help relax, especially when feeding baby and there is always time for chats and meeting other mums.
