Mums & Bubs Post Natal Pilates & Yoga
The morning sickness, achy lower back, and fatigue of pregnancy have passed. But for new mums, a whole new set of physical conditions often accompanies the bliss of loving your new baby. Yoga can help address the most common concerns such as weakened abs and pelvic floor, achy shoulders and neck and can help keep you moving freely and strongly.
These classes teach "Must do" exercises recommended by physiotherapists and other health professionals helping in regaining your pre-pregnancy posture, shape & tone. Join other mums & bubs in a staged & progressed specific pilates & yoga workout for the post natal mums up to 6mths after birth. You will learn how to recommence exercise safely to improve core stability and postural control.

There are many demands required of you as a new mother. Joining our mums yoga class is a great way to connect with yourself and other mums and have time to relax and refresh your energy levels. Suitable for beginners as well, our mums yoga/pilates/barre class will incorporate gentle but challenging targeted to reestablishing good pelvic floor and ab tone, gentle yoga stretching for releasing tension while allowing time for some restful meditation.
You do not need any experience and you definitely do not need a quiet baby!
When is it safe to start?
After you have had you 6 week check up at the doctors and all is well.
Ask your doctor at your 6 week check up if its is safe to join a yoga class and once you are cleared for action your instructor will introduce the postpartum poses gradually and in the correct order. The good news is that yoga poses can help prevent internal scars from forming and this will make your eventual recovery more complete. Remember to go gently though.
How to practise.
Always listen to your body. Pay attention to posture. Lift carefully and with straight spine and bent knees. Remember to rest when you need to and ask you instructor if anything feels uncomfortable.
Mats & exercise bands will be supplied.
Fee: Best value pass is a 5 Post Natal Pass for $125 (7 week expiry date). Casual drop in classes may be booked at $28 per class subject to availability.
