About Yogabellies Mum And Baby Yoga Glasgow West End
YogaBellies Mum & Baby classes involve yoga for mum, yoga for baby and some lovely deep relaxation together.
Our Mum and Baby Yoga classes include yoga postures for mum AND for baby; this is not just 'baby yoga.' All of the postures can be practiced with or without your baby, depending on how you prefer to focus. Sometimes the class is quiet and sometimes there is crying. Sometimes the babies are full of fun and sometimes they want to snuggle up to mummy and feed. Sometimes the mums are knackered and sometimes they're full of beans. But there are always appropriate practices for each pair.
For all ages, the class has a co-operative spirit of ‘give and take’, alternating yoga for babies, with yoga for mums and yoga together.
A typical session includes: baby stretches to take small bodies through a full range of movement and incorporates some baby massage; breathing and focused yoga postures for the mums; and postures-for-two to give mums and babies new ways to relate to each other. For mummies, we focus on gently working the abdominal muscles, slowly getting mummy back to pre-baby shape and helping to build strength, stamina and fitness.
The classes run in 6 week rolling blocks and each class lasts about an hour, with some time at the end to relax and chat with other local Mums and babies. Usually we recommend waiting at least 6 weeks after the birth before beginning any classes. If you have had a caesarean section, then we recommend 8-10 weeks.
During the class there is no pressure for you or baby to do anything that's uncomfortable and there's no need to have any yoga experience either.
Our classes are suitable for all levels of yoga practice.
