Post Natal Yoga + Baby Massage
Perhaps one of our initial concerns as a mother is to get our body back in shape. As your strength gains you can build up for a more dynamic practice but during those early days the key is being aware of what your body needs and nurturing yourself in the process.
Post natal yoga offers an excellent opportunity to reconnect with yourself, your body, your baby and bring that little bit of calm into your life. Kerry knows first hand that attending a yoga class with a newborn baby may not always be possible. With this in mind Kerry offers private postnatal yoga and baby massage sessions, which are totally personalised to your needs, held in the comfort of your own home and a familiar environment for baby.
During a session Kerry will focus on strengthening the pelvic floor muscle, re-aligning pelvis and spine and re-building core strength. Whilst the baby massage not only enhances the mother and baby bonding experience but it can also help ease colic, constipation, promote better sleep, improve baby’s circulation, co-ordination and mobility. Leaving mother and baby relaxed and calm to enjoy the day ahead.
