Course overview

On becoming a mother your life can change dramatically. Yoga will help you adjust to the changes which motherhood brings, whether you gave birth, adopted or fostered. It creates a space to be, breathe and accept, to relax, let off steam and find balance. It helps the body find its natural harmony, when ready, after pregnancy and childbirth.

This course suggests yoga activities to practise after childbirth and beyond, alone and with your child, using breath, movement and meditation. It is suitable whatever your situation or experience, as you will benefit from taking time for yourself and from being with your child in a playful, meditative and loving way. It is also useful for those wishing to expand their existing teaching practice.
