What is Postnatal Yoga?

Postnatal yoga is designed for new mothers who are navigating emotional and physical challenges that are commonly experienced after birth. Similar to prenatal yoga, this style of practice is focused on helping a new mother’s body adapt and recover to sudden changes, with an aim toward self-care and healing. Postnatal yoga classes will often allow mothers to bring their new baby, as a way to encourage bonding and receive support.


A postpartum yoga class will typically involve easy, gentle poses that are intended to help strengthen pelvic floor and core muscles, balance hormones, and relax the body. New mothers often encounter multiple challenges after giving birth, like sleepless nights, hormone imbalance, as well as aches and pains. Postnatal yoga offers relief and support during this sensitive time, along with the following benefits.
