Did you know …
It takes approximately six months for your body to fully recover from pregnancy and childbirth?
During this time you need to be careful how you exercise. These classes are designed specifically for the postnatal months to help your body to regain strength and tone in a safe and effective way. If your baby become restless you will discover the art of working with him or her within your yoga practice.
Yoga is a wonderful way to take care of yourself after birth. It brings a sense of well-being and equilibrium, alleviates tiredness and aches and pains and reminds you to relax.

We practice mindful breathing with yoga positions that gently release and rebalance the body, undo tension and combat fatigue. Special attention is paid to re-toning muscles of the abdomen and pelvic floor. Specific exercises strengthen the lower back and release accumulated tension, in the shoulders and upper back,  from holding, nursing and carrying. In this class we develop the yoga over the weeks, you will grow in strength and confidence as well as keeping flexibility not only in your body but in your practice with and around your little one. This class is followed with time for tea, giving space for supportive chat with other mums and discussion of issues relevant to yours and your babies wellbeing .

As ever, thank you for a lovely session today. Ratna and I were bonding afterwards on how wonderful and empowering our experiences at the Active Birth Centre have been – I always come away so grateful for the space and encouragement, and it’s great to connect with other Mums who have a similar outlook . Thank you, thank you, thank you. – Clare & Rowan

I remember my first postnatal yoga class at 8 weeks after the birth and how amazing it felt just to stretch! Lynn has an amazingly calming voice and influence on the babies and they all just enjoy watching the mums in strange positions!

What is so special about you and your classes Lynn, is that your have a great skill to completely relax everyone – babies and mums. You create a calm and very special environment.

I will be eternally grateful to Lynn and her postnatal yoga classes for providing critical advice on regaining pelvic floor strength. After a second vaginal birth which caused a severe cervical prolapse left me extremely weakened, I was struggling to do the pelvic floor exercises required to gain strength and prevent serious problems in the future (including incontinence), even with the support of physiotherapy. Advice from Lynn on breathing techniques in particular has made it possible for me to start doing the exercises properly without the aid of a machine and I will be making yoga classes an unmissable part of every week!
