Flow & Restore (Yoga suitable for Postnatal Recovery)
Saturday mornings 10.30am – noon!
Mummies… even though the Postnatal Class that we were running on Saturdays at 10.30am has changed to Flow and Restore, it is still a class designed to help your postnatal recovering and taking your first steps back into a regular practice!
So go along and give it a try and the great thing is… you can take a friend or partner with you!
Why Flow and Restore over any of our regular scheduled classes? This class combines active postures & vinyasa flow with restorative yoga, creating an energizing and nourishing balance for body, heart & mind. The dynamic and fluid practices will heat the body and build strength, endurance and flexibility. The quiet, restorative posture will help relax the muscles, tissues, organs and nervous system… encouraging a release of deeply held tension while replenishing energy. Helps to decrease negative stress and encourages healthy recovery for post-natal and injury or illness.
This class is open to students who want a more restorative practice, and offers wonderful benefits to our post-natal students. During this time yoga provides opportunities to connect with other women at similar stages of the postpartum experience, a powerful antidote to the isolation that often accompanies early parenting. The flow & restore yoga practice helps you reclaim your post-pregnancy body. Starting gently to ease you into practice, the class is appropriate for women new to yoga, or yoginis looking to find a smart way back to a full practice. The poses will emphasize abdominal toning, pelvic floor and back strengthening. We will spend time releasing stress from the neck, shoulder, and upper back area. These areas often become tense from nursing, and carrying both baby and supplies. A restorative pose and guided relaxation will complete the sequence, leaving you calm and restored before returning to your baby.
