baby yoga smalMother & Baby Yoga ~ class resumes 6th September

11:00-12:00pm

Mother and Baby is a great way to practise yoga with your baby, in a friendly and supportive environment. The focus is to encourage post natal recovery, by stabilising the pelvis, strengthening core muscles and releasing tension from the body. This helps to raise energy levels and increase a sense of ease within the body. All of this is done whilst engaging your baby with songs and movements, providing an excellent opportunity to bond and spend time with your baby and meet other parents and carers to share the experiences of caring for a new baby.

No experience is required and all are welcome. Babies start at approx 6 weeks + and continue until they start to crawl.

Katie Myers is an experienced Pregnancy, Post Natal & Children’s Yoga teacher.  She has studied pre-natal yoga with Birthlight & Children’s Yoga with the Special Yoga Centre.

Classes cost £13 to drop in where spaces are available or 6 classes for £66 (please note that the 6 classes must be taken within a two month period from purchase date). Booking is advisable for this class.

Jen(Aniston), Katy (Perry), Gisele (Bundchen), Miranda (Kerr), Cameron (Diaz) and Angelina (Jolie) are doing it. Why aren’t you?

You’re working out your body. But what about your mind? When do you stop and take time for you. To silence that inner voice, the busy mind?

Come along and breathe. Research shows meditation increases your energy, improves sleep and creativity. It decrease anxiety and makes you look younger and live longer. Who doesn’t want that! Come along for 45 minutes’ and walk away feeling rejuvenated.

Join Melanie. She was first taught to meditate when she was 12 by a nun at school. Her journey with meditation began that day. It wasn’t until 18 months ago that she started to run classes and workshops. She believes there is no right or wrong to meditation, it’s learning what works for you and in her class you’ll be led on a guided and breathe meditation. She’ll share different techniques with you. Most of all, she’ll show you that you can meditate almost anywhere. If you’re new to mediation. Welcome. Melanie teaches a lot of learn to meditate classes.

What Melanie says about meditation – ‘It isn’t about spirituality or religion. I meditate most days for 10 minutes, some longer, some shorter. I feel like that better version of me. It’s helped me increase focus and lose weight.’

So I’m never really off. And meditation is actually the one time I get to really reset.
