Have you recently had a baby come into your life!? A serious congratulations are in order! Welcome to the club of Mamahood! Through the incredible practice of yoga, Mama & Baby Yoga classes are here to help you transition and thrive into your brand new, often exhausted, yet amazing self!
I also recently had a baby, a baby who has taught me more things about myself then I ever could have imagined… Not only has he opened up my heart ten fold, he has indefinitely changed the way I practice yoga.
This transition has been the most challenging and fulfilling experience of my life. For this reason, I feel drawn to gather mothers to a place where we can encourage connection with each other and our little ones. A time set aside to focus on the amazing power of our bodies, tenderness of the heart and ever enduring spirit.
These classes are fun and lighthearted! A yoga sequence that empowers and releases, all the while incorporating a deep and mindful connection with your baby.
Is this class right for you?
This class is open to all levels. However it is recommend that women are at least 6 weeks postpartum for vaginal birth and 12 weeks postpartum for cesarean birth or given the go ahead by their healthcare practitioner.
What if I need to feed, change, or calm my baby down?
Mama’s are always encouraged to tend to their babies as needed. This is a breastfeeding friendly space, options to feed wherever you are most comfortable. There is plenty of space to change your baby as well as washroom facilities. If your baby cries, don’t stress, it happens! All babies often get good and vocal at some point throughout the class. We call this a baby choir.
What do I bring to class?
For Baby: Diaper bag, a thin blanket and a few small toys.
For You: Your personal yoga mat (free rentals available), comfy clothes and water bottle.

A class where stillness and meditation is encouraged in a room with dimmed lights, candles, and soothing music. Moving through roughly 5 asanas, postures are held for longer periods of time allowing you to find complete relaxation. Asanas are supported by props (blankets, bolsters, blocks, and eye/hand/abdomen pillows) provided by the studio supporting you into a calm, balanced space. Aromatherapy and hands on assists will also support wellbeing in each pose.
