Yin & Restorative
In this held space we will slow our minds and bring stillness to our bodies. Yin is the passive practice to balance our increasingly yang, or active, lifestyle. Working specifically with connective tissue, we will hold postures for longer with the use of our breathe to restore our energy flow and flexibility. As stated by David Williams, “the real yoga is what you can’t see.” Various props will be used for extra support in facilitating long held postures.

Mom & Baby Yoga
This class provides moms (or dads/ caregivers) a relaxed space to connect with other parents. Yoga postures and breath work focus on supporting postpartum healing and easing the physical and emotional strain that comes along with the joy that a new baby brings to your life! Postures will focus on building strength throughout your entire body during the early stages of postpartum recovery. The class is best suited for moms that are 6 – 20 weeks postpartum with pre-crawlers. While the class will focus on the mother/ care giver, infant massage and movement exercises with baby are included.
Infants are natural yogis. They naturally move through many of the primary yoga poses in their developmental process from birth through creeping, crawling, sitting, standing and walking. They need to do this to develop the natural curves in their spines as well as build strength in their muscles.
In this class mom’s and caregivers will learn baby exercises and yoga poses to strengthen growing muscles, aid in digestion, promote better sleeping patterns and help infants towards their next stage of development – sitting, crawling, standing and walking. You’ll learn exercises for their developmental process and brain development, and important methods for soothing. It’s also a great bonding tool for parents, caregivers.
Potential benefits of baby yoga include:
Build body awareness and strengthen growing muscles
Work towards the next developmental milestone
Poses and exercises to promote better sleeping patterns and aid in digestion
Enjoy tummy time
Stimulate their senses and brain development
