BENEFITS OF PRENATAL YOGA

A prenatal yoga class can offer you a quiet respite to slow down, connect with your baby and honor the changes of your pregnancy. Students move mindfully through modified yoga postures, restorative poses, practice breath-work, pelvic-floor exercises and explore a variety of relaxation techniques.

In combination these techniques will help to strengthen and tone the body, alleviate discomforts ad prepare you for your labor and birth.

WHY SHOULD I PRACTICE YOGA WITH MY BABY?

 

Busy new parents can attend classes with their newborns while learning how to integrate their babies into an evolving yoga practice.  In Julias Yoga classes, you will practice  exercises to help encourage infant development, bond with your baby  and  help to  build  greater strength, flexibility and body awareness. 

 

Postpartum Parent -- Om Baby yoga classes are designed to address the physical issues of the postpartum body, focusing on strengthening core muscles, releasing tight shoulder and back muscles and re-balancing the body and mind.

A Parent-baby class also  allows space for you to nurse, rest, and tend to your newborn.

When can I begin my yoga practice after giving birth?

Its best to get the go ahead from your caregiver .the general guidelines are 6-8 weeks after delivery. Cesarean births can take a little longer for recovery .Have your caregiver check for diastisis recti

( separation of the abdominal wall)  so you know which postures to avoid or modify.
