Now that your baby is here, you’re ready to get your body moving and reconnect with your core and pelvic floor muscles.  Learn about safe and effective exercise after birth, relieve your tight muscles, practice skills to be a calm and mindful mum, breathe and relax. Connect with the other mums and babies and enjoy a combination of yoga and pilates with your baby in a fun, friendly and unpredictable (!) environment.  Come as soon as you’re ready after birth and just relax with your baby if you wish.

MONDAY YOGA casual class:

Suitable for babies of all ages. We dance with the babies, sing songs and do massage and movement with them. We practice yoga which is ideal for your postnatal body to stretch tight muscles, regain core strength and tone, and set you up with a simple routine to practice at home. And of course the best part is our breathing and relaxation to bring you to a place of calm.

THURSDAY YOGA & PILATES 5 week course:

It’s so hard to find time at home to exercise and do your pelvic floor muscles. This is the perfect place to take time out and focus on your postnatal body with your baby alongside. Start by learning how to correctly activate your pelvic floor and core muscles. Each week you’ll build on your strength and tone, stretch your tight muscles, breathe, relax and have fun with your baby, as well as connect with the other mums and bubs. You’ll leave each class feeling refreshed and energised

Village Mamas CONNECT

Your safe space to venture out with your new baby and explore the adventure of motherhood​

It’s not easy being a mother in 2020. There are many demands on your time, an overwhelming amount of conflicting information, and you’re tired. You deserve to feel calm and confident so you can enjoy your baby!

First Tuesday of the month all new mamas are invited to connect over morning tea. Come once or as often as you like.

On the other weeks we’ll discuss a topic about mothering and motherhood.

Our groups are a safe, relaxed space for you to meet other mums with babies and to make sense of all the changes that are happening in your life. You’ll make close friendships and feel lighter and more confident in your role as beautiful mama.

Whether you’re experiencing this for the 1st, 2nd or 4th time…having a new baby can be an intense time for mothers.  It can bring a mix of joy and stress as you learn to adapt to the changes in your life and your growing family.  This course gives you a safe space and time to explore your changed world, acknowledge the challenges that come with parenting, find ways to cope and adapt, and share the load with others who understand and care about your story.

Cuddle, feed and snuggle with your baby while we explore a different theme, share morning tea and end with a guided relaxation.

It’s a great opportunity to connect with women who are all going through similar experiences, share your stories and benefit from a sense of normalcy again – what a relief!  Wear your pyjamas if you wish…there is no judgement here!  We have seen very close friendships blossom out of these groups that last beyond ‘the baby years’.

Your session is facilitated by Karen Shlegeris, founder of Birth & Baby Village and new mama nurturer.
