Yogabellies Baby and Mummy Yoga (Harborne) Classes are on a Monday at 10.45am at Barefoot Yoga Studio on Harborne High street and on a Wednesday at 10.30am at The Community Hub, Sycamore Road Bournville(with time afterwards for a cup of tea and a chat with other mummies).
Classes are booked in blocks of 6 in advance. The cost of your course includes a super duper YogaBellies Mummy Pack, customized for the class you are attending including a tote bag, and emailed downloadable pack with sequences to try at home and much more. You are not just booking a class, but a full course. I’m afraid that I don’t have drop ins at the classes as each forms part of a ‘yoga journey’ and to feel the benefits, you must continue your practice for a number of weeks. I also keep the group small so that the mummies and babies all have the chance to get to know each other. Real friendships are made.
A typical class includes baby stretches to take small bodies through a full range of movement which often astonishes (and inspires) their mums including incorporating baby massage; breathing and focused yoga postures for the mums, and postures-for-two to give mums and babies new ways to relate to each other. For mummies, we focus on gently working the abdominal muscles, slowly getting mummy back to pre-baby shape and helping to build strength, stamina and fitness.
Please don’t worry if your baby cries or needs feeding. The class is very much baby led and you are free to see to them as and when you wish. Each class is very supportive and friendly.
£60 for a 6 week block
