Practicing Yoga safely when your body has changed due to motherhood
As mothers our bodies go through huge changes, and they don't always bounce back.😮 Mine certainly did not. When my children were 2 and 5, I felt like my body might never work again. I couldn't run or jump, I had terrible foot and back pain, and a bladder that did not always behave itself.💧I was physically and mentally exhausted. All these things were connected to my weak pelvic floor and abdominals that didn't come back together after my sweet 9lb babies arrived.
To make things worse, when I went back to my beloved yoga, things didn't get better, they got worse. I realised I needed professional help and I decided to focus 100% on healing my body. For a year, I saw a physiotherapist and attended physio-led pilates. I learned more about how the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles work and paid close attention to which movements in yoga helped, and which movements caused more problems.

Vinyasa is an upbeat and creative form of yoga where breath and yoga postures flow together to create a dynamic yoga class. It is a moving meditation that also builds strength and flexibility.
Who should attend?
These beginner yoga workshops are suitable for those completely new to yoga, or those students looking to deepen their practice. Learn to connect flowing postures together with breath and proper alignment techniques for each pose, so you'll feel confident when you go to group yoga classes.
Absolute beginners are welcome and no experience is necessary. This is a vigorous style of yoga so expect to sweat.
