Who’s this class for?
Postpartum mamas with pre- crawling babies who want to meet like- minded mamas, avoid loneliness and Isolation, bond with their baby and heal their body after pregnancy and birth.
When can I start?
Every mama and baby are different so start when you and your baby feel ready which is usually around 6-8 weeks once breast milk supply is established and regulated and you’ve stopped bleeding. I recommend a postnatal check- up with a Women’s Health Physio before you recommence any exercise to check your abdominal separation and pelvic floor. The stretching we do in Baby Massage and Yoga is very safe and gentle and you won’t do any exercises that aren’t suitable for postpartum bodies.
Can I come casually of do I have to sign up to a course? What If I go away or my kids get sick?
Classes are for those willing to commit to feeling deeply rested, relaxed and nourished in their transition to motherhood. This requires coming to as many classes as you can over a period of time to work towards your goal and it allows me to get to know you and your baby so I can tailor my classes to your unique needs.
Do I need to book online or can I just show up?
There’s only 4 spots so book HERE now to grab one.
Can I get a refund or do a make up class if I miss a week?
As I hold your spot for the time we’re together, I’m unable to refund you for any missed classes so unless you’re unwell or away, do your best to come along. If you miss a class, you may attend 1 class in the next term as a make up class.
What do I need to bring?
You’re welcome to use all our beautiful eco- yoga props so just bring a wrap for your baby to lie on and a pram or carrier/ sling in case your baby needs to sleep. You can leave your pram outside the yoga space or under the back verandah.
What do I wear?
Clothes that are stretchy, comfy and make you feel good. Layering is best in case you get hot or cold. No shoes or socks are necessary.
What if my baby’s crawling?
Classes are for pre- crawling babies so come along to Mama Pilates instead and leave your baby with your partner or I can arrange a nanny to look after them.
What if I don’t have anyone to look after my toddler?
If other mamas are in the same situation, I can arrange a nanny to play with the children. Please give me a call on 0452 580 005 to chat about your needs.
What if the class times don’t suit me?
If class times don’t suit you, send me an email HERE with a list of your preferred days/ times and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.
