Mom and Baby Yoga (Jan 9 to Mar 6 Session)
Feb 27 @ 10:45 am – 11:45 am
Mom and Baby Yoga (Jan 9 to Mar 6 Session) @ Kind Living | Orillia | Ontario | Canada

This class is for Moms and Babies of six weeks to crawling. Begin to get to know, heal and rebuild your post pregnancy body by bringing your Baby onto the mat with you. You will do postures with Baby in your arms, on your belly, having some tummy time themselves, sleeping peacefully beside you or resting on your thighs or knees. As you open up the chest and heart, and stretch out those shoulders (maybe sore from leaning over change tables, breastfeeding, spending hours just gazing into Baby’s peaceful sleeping face) you are able to spend time connecting with Babe while reconnecting with your body. Babies often find coming back to the place you perhaps practised prenatal yoga, calming as they recognize the voice of the teacher and the relaxing affects it had on you, the Mother. They may actually remember that feeling of calm that came over you and consequently them in the womb. It is a wonderful way to meet other Mothers and Babies all going through the same things. This alone is nurturing to you and Babe in the first months of being a Mother.

You will need a mat for yourself and a blanket for your Baby. Bringing a few soft toys for your Baby to play with depending on their age is welcome. You may even get lucky and have the teacher steal your Babe away for a full sun salutation!

Prenatal Yoga (Jan 9 to Mar 6 Session)
Feb 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Prenatal Yoga (Jan 9 to Mar 6 Session) @ Kind Living | Orillia | Ontario | Canada

You don’t need to be a seasoned practicing yogini to reap the benefits of prenatal yoga.

Prenatal yoga gives you the opportunity to connect deeply with the life you are growing, gives some relief to the common symptoms of pregnancy and prepares you physically and mentally to labor.

Linking yoga postures that are safe for your stage of pregnancy with the breath, allows you to explore the mind, body and spirit as well as the spirit of your Baby. Gently stretching those areas (which may be beginning to feel a little stiffer than they were in your pre-pregnancy body) gives relief to swollen feet, insomnia, heart burn, veracious veins, nausea and sciatica to name a few common symptoms. Prenatal yoga helps to strengthen the uterus, open the hips and give helpful breathing techniques in preparation for a healthy child birth.

Our classes take place in a safe, nurturing environment where you can ask questions and build relationships with other Mothers to be.
