.: Mum & Baby Yoga :.

One of the things I had on my to do list for 2017 was certainly Yoga. I did the pregnancy Yoga and I’ve really enjoyed it, so was really keen on trying the Mum & Baby yoga while I’m on mat leave. Had the first class on Thursday and really enjoyed having a bit of time for myself. Baby Em was quite quiet, which was certainly unusual. I think she really enjoyed looking into other babies from her age. For me it was really amazing to stretch a bit!

Some of the exercises we did together

Benefits of Mother and Baby Yoga:

  • Strengthening and toning your muscles, especially abdominals, pelvic floor and back.
  • Encouraging you and your baby to find time and space for relaxation.
  • Using the breath to increase calm and confidence.
  • Improving your sleep.
  • Promoting understanding of your baby’s development.
  • Engaging and bonding with your baby.

Honestly, the main benefit I’ve seen was to be able to do an activity that made me feel I was having a bit of my old life back.

Need to find some classes on a Saturday so I can carry on some yoga once I’m back at work.

Do you like yoga? Any experiences you would like to share? Did you setup any health challenge for this year?
