YogaBellies for Mum and Baby (Wendover)
The body undergoes huge change during pregnancy and childbirth. YogaBellies for Mum and Baby is a unique post natal yoga class which focuses on mum’s three main areas of concern: the back, the abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor. We focus on rebuilding these three key areas post-natally, at a pace that suits you. As the integrity of each of these key areas is interconnected, we work on all three at once to help bring back structural integrity to your body.
At YogaBellies for Mum and Baby, we don’t “put baby in the corner” while you practice yoga. Our exclusive post natal classes also incorporate baby yoga postures for your little one too so that they can practice with mummy! As every aspect of your life will include baby now, we help you integrate baby into your yoga practice, while feeling the benefits of yoga for you too. You will also learn breath awareness and relaxation techniques, which help to increase energy levels and allow you to relax while with baby (yes it is possible!!)
Yoga provides a wonderful resource for you and your baby that allows you to deal positively with stress, and encourage mindful relaxation in your role as a mother and to help gently guide the body and mind back to their former glory.

- Session Information
Our classes last around an hour and involve yoga for mum
yoga for baby and some lovely deep relaxation together. All of the postures can be practiced with or without your baby
depending on how you prefer to focus. A typical session includes baby stretches to take small bodies through a full range of movement which often astonishes (and inspires) their mums including incorporating baby massage; breathing and focused yoga postures for the mums
and postures-for-two to give mums and babies new ways to relate to each other. For mummies
we focus on gently working your BAP's (back
abs and pelvic floor
) slowly getting mummy back to pre-baby shape and helping to build strength
stamina and fitness.

- Age Ranges
I would recommend at least 6 weeks after you have given birth. If you have had a caesarean section
then I would recommend 8-10 weeks. As always
the most important thing is to listen to your body
if you are in any pain or discomfort
just wait a few weeks. During the class there is no pressure for you or baby to do anything that's uncomfortable and there's no need to have any yoga experience either. During class
don't worry if your baby cries
sleeps and more...this class is an enjoyable one so 'go with the flow' is the motto! Our classes are suitable for all levels of yoga practice so please don't worry if you have never done yoga before.
