baby yoga & postnatal yoga
dedicated baby yoga and postnatal yoga classes in Cirencester
I run two different classes for you to enjoy with your baby in tow - parent and baby yoga, and postnatal yoga. My classes are friendly, calm and nurturing - a chance to meet other local mums, bond with your baby, but also have the space to focus on yourself as you move through postpartum.

Baby yoga classes can be a lovely follow on from baby massage, or you're welcome to join anytime brand new. This class is for baby AND you. A class for mums and babies to enjoy together, where baby is on the mat with you and incorporated into what we do.
Classes are small and friendly, perfect for you to enjoy meeting new mums in a relaxed and informal atmosphere; please don't worry if your baby is crying or needing to feed or needs changing, this is a space to take care of yourself and your baby.
I hold two classes for you and your little ones to enjoy the benefits of yoga together, so we can adapt the practice as they grow. The older baby class is suggested from 5mths, this is a guide as every baby is different. It's ideal to attend the older baby class if your baby is no longer happy laying on their back for long periods, or if they are sitting. If you are new to my baby yoga classes and your little one is 5mths, I would recommend starting with the younger baby class first.
There is optional time before/after class, where you're welcome to grab a snack and get to know others in the group.

this is a class focussed solely on mum and your postpartum recovery (babies 6wks to pre-mobile join you on your mat). At the beautiful Retreat and Rewild, Cirencester
Next dates TBC when I'm back from my maternity leave (June 2024)
Postnatal yoga is a class focussed on your and your recovery after birth, helping you feel more confident in getting back to movement. Baby can come along with you and is settled on the mat/in the centre while you stretch and strengthen. Covering topics like diastasis recti, core progressions, pelvic floor function and your breath, as well as helping to release your back and all those tight spots you might experience postpartum. You're of course welcome to feed and change your baby as you need throughout.
A gift from my sister - a real gift of time out, focusing on me and my baby. Relaxing music, calming scents and a very welcoming atmosphere with a gentle reintroduction to exercise and gradually graded intensity over subsequent months. I highly recommend these classes and Sinead as a teacher.
