Postnatal Yoga

The first 6 weeks after giving birth is time to heal, rest and bond with your baby.  Listen to your body and when you feel ready after this 6 week period you can return back to your regular practice. Postnatal classes with Gemma will allow you to embrace a new body, working on strengthening the core and back muscles as well as engaging the pelvic floor. Finding inner calm and peace through meditation and relaxation, rejuvenating the mind and increasing energy levels. Working on alignment to improve posture and releasing tension throughout the body.
