Mummy & Me Post Natal Yoga
Mummy & Me Post Natal Yoga
Classes with Alexandra start from October 7th 2019 – please enroll with Alexandra
Mummy and Me post natal yoga classes are designed to support mothers from about six weeks after the birth of their baby, but each mother is individual and can listen to their body later than from six weeks if this suits better. Our Mummy and Me classes focus on enabling a mother to connect physically and emotionally with their baby through special and delicate movements that reinforce bonding. Babies love watching mum move with them.
The classes are intended to be sociable and become a lovely regular practice for mothers where they can engage with other mothers during a time that can be overwhelming and isolating.
The fun friendly and relaxed atmosphere of this class makes it the perfect time for mothers to throw off the outside world for an hour and leave today’s electronic stimulants, at the studio door, whilst they focus exclusively on their baby.
Classes may also help mothers regain their strength in their back, pelvis floor and abdominal muscles after the softening process that naturally occurs during pregnancy. We also focus on neck muscles that we tighten whilst feeding babies.
We suggest that mothers who delivered by caesarean section do not attend these classes until they are 12 weeks post-delivery.
Please message the teacher Alexandra, a registered Physiotherapist, if you have questions or wish to join the classes. These classes usually run in pre-booked ‘series’. Drop in places are available if Alexandra has space.

What do they say about Yogaspace Yorkshire?
The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!
I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.
Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.
Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.
I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it
I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.
My advice? Book it now!
I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.
