New Parent

In this class you will learn how to bond with your baby through the power of breath. We will practice gentle, safe and connected yoga that will incorporate your baby both actively and passively throughout the class. You will be able to strengthen your core and improve your natural posture which will in turn help with your mothering needs throughout the day and night. Apart from these physical benefits, your baby will learn how to regulate their emotions through your breath and centred emotional seat. The main aim is to have fun and incorporate all the above elements of the practice without any expectations. Most often its expectations that kills results. Please ask the teacher if you need any assistance with safe sling wearing techniques before the class starts. We prefer you wear soft mouldable slings with good structure such as the 'Marsupi' rather than rigid carrier type slings. But you can choose any sling that works for you and your baby as long as it is safe.
