Yoga Place Baby
Yoga for bumps, birth and baby
Welcome to a totally unique yoga studio in East London, where we are dedicated to all things bumps and babies! Here we will take you through your pregnancy to your child becoming a toddler with yoga from your 2nd trimester to postnatal recovery, including Birth Preparation, Baby Massage, as well as a wonderful selection of therapies and a lot of fun on the way!
Did you know… women who have practiced yoga during labour tend to:
- Instinctively take care of their backs
- Be more mobile during contractions
- Are able to stand for longer periods helping the dilation of the cervix
- Have more strength and stamina to manage labour
Also, the natural tendency during labour is to find a dark place to retreat to, which is not always possible in a hospital environment however, yoga helps you to take yourself into a safe place internally, focusing on breath and using visualisation. This is why we recommend that you come to Pregnancy classes, so you are equipped with the natural tools you have to birth your baby!
You are welcome to join any of the Pregnancy Classes from 12 weeks, before then REST, BREATHE, PUT YOUR FEET UP as you are creating a life and growing an extra organ (the placenta) during this time so you want to take it easy! You can then look forward to starting your practice once you are in your second trimester.
New mums are welcome to join Mum & Baby Yoga and the Baby Massage classes as and when, we will never turn you away, not even if you rock up in your pjs! We will look after you and make sure you get a bit of TLC too!
