Join us for Postpartum Yoga Classes in London Ontario. Embrace health and serenity in yoga classes for new mothers. Prioritize your healing and wellness.
The postnatal period, or the postpartum period, is an important stage in your journey as a mother. As you navigate through the joys and challenges of caring for your newborn baby, postnatal yoga can be a valuable source of support and healing.
Postnatal yoga focuses on areas affected by pregnancy and childbirth to restore strength and tone the body. Through gentle stretching, strengthening exercises and mindful breathing, postnatal yoga can help to relieve physical discomfort such as muscle tension, tightness and fatigue. It promotes better posture and alignment, helping to restore abdominal and pelvic floor function.
In addition to the physical benefits, postnatal yoga can help nurture your emotional well-being during this transformative time. The practice promotes relaxation, reduces stress levels and cultivates a sense of calm amid the demands of motherhood. By connecting with your breath and participating in gentle movements, you can experience a greater sense of stability and balance, promoting emotional resilience and providing a much-needed sanctuary for self-care.

Yoga for postpartum can be divided into three stages.
Birth to 6 Weeks: A regular yoga practice is not at all recommend at this stage. Patience. It is much better to embrace the breathing and meditative (pranayama and pratyahara) aspect of Yoga. Any Asana (postures) should be restful, gentle and promote sleep. No effort – no tension.
6 Weeks to 3 Months: You can slowly resume regular gentle yoga practice. Restorative, effortless, slow. Stay within your body’s comfort zone. No pushing yourself.
Beyond 3 Months: It should be safe to resume regular yoga practice that supports recovery, mobility, and strength. Be sure to have your doctor’s approval before returning to regular physical activity. All Asana can be practiced with mindfulness and modifications as needed.

Yoga is a great addition to any fitness program. Depending on how vigorous your practice is, it can help with weight loss. More importantly, it will help with strength, mobility and flexibility.
