Postnatal – mother&baby yoga in IJburg

Being born and and giving birth are two of the most impactful events in life. After birth, both mother and baby need time to heal, settle down and get used to the new situation; the first weeks as a mother of a(nother) little baby and the first weeks of life outside the womb. Gentleness, patience and compassion for yourself, your body and your baby are very much required. With the passing of weeks and months you will slowly find back to your ‘old’ self and your ‘new’ self as a mother will gradually become more powerful and confident.

This 4-week Postnatal Mother and Baby Yoga course offers the opportunity to gently move with your baby and other mothers, to relax the body, build new strength and share personal experiences. We do postnatal yoga exercises with and without the baby, that aim to strengthen the pelvic floor, abdomen, hips and back and relaxing the neck and shoulders. Simple and effective exercises that you can also do at home to slowly regain the strength in your body, as well exercises that you can do with your baby in the carrier or sling. Spending time focusing on topics that are relevant to most new mothers, such as processing the birth experience, we will practice mini-meditations to find mindfulness in your new parenting role. The babies can follow their own rhythms in class. They can nurse, sleep or play while you are near.
