We welcome you to our yoga studio in a safe and responsible manner, please follow our Studio Corona Protocol when you visit the studio. All our studio classes are livestreamed as well, so you can also follow the classes live online, for those who do not pass the Health Check to come to the studio, or simply if you prefer online.
The Postnatal Yoga classes are recuperative yoga classes for new mums focusing on the mother after birth.
They are for women from 6 weeks after delivery onwards (10 weeks in case of c-section), covering the postpartum period and the first postnatal year, and can even be beneficial for women who gave birth up to 2 years ago and still having physical complaints.
These classes will give you a good foundation to strengthen muscles from the inside out and can be great in preparation for your regular yoga classes or other fitness regimes. We focus on simple yet effective yoga movements, breathing techniques, and relaxation.
The Postnatal Yoga classes promote core strength, relaxation and nurture for new mothers following birth. They are based on the view that each woman, even a very experienced yoga practitioner, needs recuperative yoga for the postnatal period, to ensure a safe and sound re-toning of the whole body postpartum and over the first postnatal year, avoiding long term problems of joint instability and hypermobility.
The classes are bi-lingual (English/Dutch).
Next to the Postnatal Yoga classes for mums we also offer Postnatal Mum & Baby Workshops, check out our Workshops page!
Dates & Timings
The Postnatal Yoga Classes take place on Thursdays from 20-21.15h. See our Class Schedule. Doors open 5 minutes before class. For your first class we ask you to sign up at least 1 day before your class for your online registration and (medical) intake.
In the yoga studio we have yoga mats and props (blocks, belts, bolsters, blankets) available. Feel free though to bring your own mat. For extra comfort you can additionally bring a warm shawl or personal blanket to class yourself. Dress in comfortably sitting sports or yoga clothes, with some warm options too like a sweater and warm socks. A water bottle and a towel may be useful too. Lastly, just as with normal yoga class, do not practice yoga on a full stomach! (Note when corona infections run high in our society, for hygiene reasons you might have to bring your own mat & props to the studio - please always follow our Studio Corona Protocol).
