The appleyoga approach to postnatal yoga, baby yoga & massage

appleyoga's postnatal training offers full spectrum yoga that can all serve to firm a foundation of physical emotional and spiritual health from which women can flourish as mothers and in all the roles they play.

It can and often does take months for women to have re discovered their embodied strength and remembered who they are in the context of their new life. Practiced wisely, yoga can form the basis for this new exploration. 

This is a daunting time for new mothers and creating a class designed to support them on many levels can help them feel centred, give them a more positive outlook and provide access to simple tools to empower themselves throughout their day on and off the yoga mat. 

As well as supporting the mother, this training offers tools to incorporate the baby into classes. With a day dedicated to baby yoga and baby massage, you will have plenty to offer new mums, allowing them time on their mat with the baby. 

Baby yoga and baby massage have wonderful benefits for the development of a baby and it provides a wonderful time for the mother and baby to bond and enjoy a community support at this early stage of motherhood. 

You will finish the postnatal training with:

  • Key principles of Yoga practices adapted for postnatal bodies.
  • Yoga and Pilates apple pods designed to focus on re-establishing core strength, whole body realignment specifically the spine and pelvis and joint stability.
  • Clear simple and safe ways to adapt a regular yoga practice for postnatal women to empower them.
