Yoga Bonding-Mom & Babies Postnatal Yoga

Thursdays, 10:30 – 11:30 AM

First three Thursdays of each month, 5:30 – 6:30 PM

Renee Peterson, MSW, RYT-200, Certified Viniyoga Wellness Instructor, Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher

This is a fun informal gathering with moms/caregivers and babies that will integrate babies into their moms/caregivers yoga practice. Babies are introduced to yoga via movement, sound, massage and bonding.

Moms will move through a gentle exploratory practice at about 6-8 weeks postpartum* to build awareness of pelvic region and gradually build core strength. This specially designed yoga practice will help moms re-stabilize hips and low back, gently and safely strengthen the core, and relieve upper back, neck and shoulder tension.

This class is a great way to find encouragement and support as you meet other moms and babies close in age and development while doing something rewarding for yourself as you stretch, strengthen and restore your body. Linger in Savasana, Relaxation Posture, at the end of the hour. You will leave feeling encouraged and re-energized. Healthy snacks and juices provided.

*Moms begin postnatal yoga once they have the ok from their doctor, midwife, doula, PT, or chiropractor. Email Renee at reneepeterson2121@gmail.com or call her at 715.212.9749 with any questions.

Bring 2 receiving blankets for swaddling baby during baby yoga practice.
