Mums and bubs yoga classes are a great way to build a strong connection between parent and child while reaping a plethora of physical and mental health benefits.
These classes typically involve a combination of postnatal yoga exercises and activities with baby to help mothers strengthen their core and pelvic floor muscles and create a mindful connection with their little one.
Postnatal yoga classes are specifically designed for mothers who have recently given birth and can help to rebuild and strengthen their body. They are also beneficial for helping to ease back pain and improve posture.
In mums and bubs classes, mothers will have the chance to do a variety of postnatal yoga exercises while their baby is also in the class. This can help to create a strong and loving bond between parent and child, while baby can also benefit from the physical stimulation.
Babies are often more relaxed and content when they are in a soothing environment and they can also learn to imitate their mum’s movements.
As well as providing physical benefits, mums and bubs yoga classes can also help to improve your mindset. Taking part in postnatal yoga classes is a great way to take some time out for yourself and focus on your mental wellbeing.
By participating in yoga classes, you can reduce stress, anxiety and depression.
Finally, mums and bubs yoga classes can help to improve your breath.
During the class, you will learn breathing techniques which can help to reduce stress, improve your energy levels and help you to stay calm and centred.
Breathing with your baby can also help to build a strong bond between you and your little one.
If you’d like to try mums and bubs yoga from the comfort of your own home we have a wonderful online ‘Yoga With Baby’ course with Kula Yoga’s Founder Kacey Smith.
This 7 part series is tailored to new mamas wanting a fun way to exercise with their bub.
Each class is 10 minutes long to give you the option of practising the sequences individually when time is tight, or combine two or more sequences for a longer practise.
We hope you and bub enjoy the classes!
