MUMS AND BUBS
Restore, Rebuilt, Reconnect
This specific class will help you to rebuild strength and stability after the birth of your baby. We start by consciously using our breath to reconnect to the pelvic floor and build strength upon this foundation. This class is a beautiful supportive environment where women come together in support of each other. This is not like a regular yoga class, we expect babies to make noise and mums to stop at times to feed or change their baby.
All equipment is provided; all you need is a blanket for bub and a toy or soother.
The best time to begin is 6 weeks post natural birth or 10 weeks post-caesarean.
Classes are run in blocks of 5 weeks, bookings are essential, maximum 10 Mumma's per class block.
@ The Yoga Shala
There will be one make-up class offered after the block should you miss a day.
Stillness through Motion
The yoga I teach has a strong focus on creating a solid foundation with the breath. Through this connection you are able to intuitively guide yourself through your practice, choosing mindfully from the various strength options offered. The breath is the link between your body and mind, yoking the two.
When practiced regularly over time, your yoga practice allows you to find stillness through motion, throughout your practice and into your daily life.
All classes include a combination of the following-
Pranayama; focussed breath awareness
Asana; the physical poses of yoga
Drishti; focused gaze, as a means for
developing concentrated intention

A Therapeutic Approach
Tailoring a class to suit a person’s individual needs is ideal as we are all so different.
A Therapeutic approach takes into account all aspects of a person’s life. Work-life, home-life, diet, exercise, stress levels, support networks, health, past illnesses and injuries, disease, family history, short and long term goals etc.
In this way a thorough assessment can be made and a practice can be designed to suit the individual.
A personal practice may include; yoga postures, specific breathing techniques, mindfulness exercises and meditation. Depending on the individuals needs, scope for practice and time available.
