MAMA BABY YOGA IN ENGLISH
Welcome to a yoga class that will enable you to strengthen and connect with your physical body after giving birth. In this class you will have an opportunity to meet with other mamas and their babies, sharing emotions and insights in words and through the magic flow we will explore on the yoga mat together.
Focus on you as a mother
This yoga focuses on you as a mom and your baby can join you on the mat or sleep comfortably on a blanket that you bring with you or in its stroller just outside the yoga room.
Come as you are – no pressure of performance
This is a space for you and your baby to simply be who you are. We let go of any comparisons to others, the pressure of accomplishment and have-tos, instead we invite the joy of having a whole room full of babies bubbling with their vivacious energy! We use sound, mantras and movement to create a cozy and fun time for both babies and grown-ups!
Laughter, giggles, cries or joyous shouts – all sounds are welcome here whomever it may come from, so no need to worry about your baby having to be quiet. In this space, everything is ok!
We start the class with a sharing where you have the opportunity to share your feelings about where you’re at today both physically and emotionally. The class then continues, adapting to the needs of both young and adult participants.
The yoga focuses on you and your body building up the muscles in the abdomen and pelvic floor area at a slow pace through soothing and stretching yoga positions.
We end the class with relaxation and soothing breathing exercises easy to implement in your everyday life.
"My biggest fear before our child was born was being isolated and lonely in motherhood. To go from my rich social calendar to the empty apartment alone not knowing what the days would be like. This is why I sought after going to mama baby yoga very early - Karla was 5 weeks old when we joined our first course. Infinite has since become a place where my child and I can meet, as the person I was before she came and the person I am since she is with us. It has become the safe space in which to discover who I want to be as a mother, an oasis away from all the musts, the shoulds and all those stressful even if well intended advice. Here we both feel at ease in body and soul and get the energi we need to discover the world together. I am full of gratitude for this community!"
