Following the birth of a baby women need specialist care in order to work therapeutically, develop core strength, regain the strength of the pelvic floor and to learn specific breathing and relaxation exercises to adjust to their new role as a parent. We recommend that women attend post natal yoga for a minimum of 3 months before renewing their pre baby yoga practice. Yoga for Parents is for postnatal mums, babies as well as dads and anyone with children who finds it difficult to attend a yoga class. These 10 week courses offer a flowing style of yoga, focusing on core strength, flexibility and relaxation. Beginners and experienced students will be catered for. Babies are very, very welcome in class!
Pre Natal yoga with a qualified instructor is an empowering and positive experience for women. Our instructors have undertaken specialist Pre Natal Yoga training and have studied to be Pre Natal Yoga instructors for a minnimum of 12 months, alongside further study including Childbirth Educator and Doula (birth support) training. Their training as Pre Natal Yoga teachers included an education in the philosophy of Active Birth.
Pregnancy yoga incorporates gentle stretching as well as relaxation and meditation techniques to enhance your and your baby’s well being. Yoga can help prepare expectant mothers physically mentally and emotionally for birth and can alleviate some of the discomforts of pregnancy such as backache, sciatica and digestive difficulties.
Our classes end with a cup of herbal tea, time for discussion and getting to know a community of mothers and expectant mothers. Dr Jean Byrne trains pre and post natal yoga instructors in Perth, Singapore and Malaysia. All pregnancy yoga teachers at The Yoga Space are trained by Jean.
Bookings essential and early bookings are recommended as classes are limited to 18 women and courses often book out.
