Mum and Baby Yoga
Mum and Baby Yoga is a chance for mum and baby to enjoy the benefits of Yoga together. Mums benefit from postures and relaxation that help with postnatal recovery, whilst bringing a sense of calm to you and your little one. Working with the body and mind simultaneously to support you in your post-natal recuperation.
Your baby’s development is supported by Yoga, songs and movement which helps to relieve common ailments such as colic, wind and constipation. Baby Yoga also develops muscle tone, co-ordination, mind and body development and promotes deep sleep. Classes are taught in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with the understanding that sometimes babies just need to cry, feed, cuddle or sleep whilst others prefer lots of physical stimulation and movement. Find out why our BCY Mums love the Mum and Baby Yoga.
“I really enjoy being able to do something for myself- the yoga has really helped ease out my shoulders and back, to regain tone and strength and also just to help me feel more relaxed and confident with my son. Sammy loves the sessions, after our first week he had the most amazing long sleep – heaven!”
The yoga is suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience, and is a safe and appropriate form of exercise for the postnatal period.
If you are interested in coming along to an upcoming Mum and Baby Yoga session then we encourage you to book in advance through our online booking system.

Post Natal Yoga Testimonials
Our Mum and Baby Yoga classes are popular with local Mums, here are a few testimonials from our wonderful yoga Mums:
“The yoga is a complete lifeline, supporting me through the more challenging moments and keeping me sane!”
– Rachel mother to Joshua aged 10 months
“Both I and my tiny 6 week old son had become stressed- he wasn’t sleeping well either in the day or in the night and I felt desperate. During our first class Laura showed me some methods to hold him and by focusing on relaxing myself through breathing and gentle movement the whole vicious cycle shifted. By the end of class he was fast asleep and both I and my son were transformed!”
– Stephanie and Otto
“It was the most useful thing I did to prepare for labour and the “golden thread breath” really carried me through the birth”
“The classes, and you, have been fantastic for us. Steering us through tiredness and adversity with warmth and humour. Thank you!”
