6 Week Parent & Baby Course with Joelle Pettitt
Tuesday 18th, 25th May, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd June at 10.45 am - £70.00
6 weeks to crawling. Parent & Baby yoga offers quality physical stimulation including flowing postures, holding, movement and deep relaxation. It induces a happy, carefree and lively parent-infant interaction which develops as the babies grow.
Classes focus on rebuilding core support by toning the deep abdominal muscles using both postural and breathwork. Breath-led movements help to ease the aches and pains that can come from pregnancy & life with a baby – all the carrying, nursing and rocking can lead to tightness in the shoulders and neck as well as lower back pain.
These classes aim to help you rebuild your strength, re-energise and help you connect with yourself, as well as other mothers and babies who are all going through the same life changes as you. It can be a wonderful way to expand your support circle or just enjoy some time for yourself knowing that your baby is there safe alongside you.
You are welcome to feed, change or play with your baby any time throughout the class.
No previous yoga experience is needed.
Group sizes are small to ensure each student receives personal attention and a safe practice adapted to your body and needs.

What do I need to bring?
All mats and props are provided so all you need to do is turn up in comfortable clothes that allow you free range of movement. It’s a good idea to bring a warm layer of clothing so you can stay warm during relaxation and some toys or a blanket for your baby.
