What are the benefits of Postnatal yoga?

  • Decrease in postpartum soreness, and faster recovery due to strong and flexible muscles
  • Easier postpartum restoration of abdominal and pelvic muscles as well as postural alignment - strong focus on chest openers, upper and lower back opening and strengthening and abdominal toning.
  • Body awareness further supports healthy postpartum structural changes
  • Muscle strengthening and lengthening helps prevent discomfort stemming from poor alignment as well as the repetitive strain injuries often caused by nursing, lifting and carrying infants

and best of all...

  • Baby participates in postnatal yoga which allows for a beautiful bonding time for mom and baby. Gentle exercises for baby strengthen and opens muscles and joints.
