Congrats! You did it and you deserve a medal! This sequence is designed for your first practice after giving birth (at least 6-8 weeks post partum).

We very simply address the tight low back, stiff shoulders, cranky psoas and even sense of overwhelm that come with all the goodness of early motherhood.

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

This is a very gentle post-natal sequence at the wall to relieve low back and upper chest tightness that comes with the first year of motherhood. You will use the wall to re-educate you low back in fluid movement and to coax open the over worked upper back shoulders and chest. I hope this brings spaciousness and relief!

Yoga

Level 2 45 mins

This is a postnatal class for the mama who is feeling strong and back into her practice. It is designed to help unwind, lengthen and free up your side body that can get very restricted from carrying baby on the hip. When the side body is open the benefits are huge. You will breathe better, stand taller and freer, and have access to deeper backbends and heart openers. This is one of my favorite sequences to practice.

Yoga

Level 2 60 mins

This post natal class will address the hunched over and rounded shoulders and chest that often come with hours of nursing, rocking, cradling your beautiful baby or even caring for your toddler. Not only does poor posture hurt, it also energetically weighs us down. This class is guaranteed to open your heart, uplift your mood, and bring new energy and vitality into your body.

Yoga

Level 2 20 mins

This postnatal sequence is a quick core recharge. Little by little your core will remember itself, don't worry!
