A progressive yoga class that is tailored to strengthen and stretch you into balance: mentally, physically and emotionally. A friendly place where you can practice with your baby on your mat.
Baby ‘n Me Yoga on at our Commercial Drive Studio Date: Wednesdays January 8 to February 27
Drop-ins are always welcome: $22 ($20.95 + gst)
Classes take place at our Commercial Drive Studio, located at 1651 Commercial Drive.
You may enter from Gravelley and Commercial across from the Home Hardware if you don’t mind some stairs to get your practice started – if you are coming with a stroller you want to use the entrance between the Vancity and the Tim Hortons/ slightly south of the Main entrance to the el Mercato. Look for the awning that says 1651 and you’ll find the elevator opens to the street level there.
The class is run as a workshop series. You can sign up for the full series and save by committing to your practice or may also join us for a drop-in if you prefer. Pass prices will be prorated each week until over half way through the series so you can still join us after the first class and enjoy the convenience and savings of a baby n me pass.
***Please note that the online registration is only available up until the first class of the series.*** After the first class please come to the studio 10-15minutes before class to sign up. For more info: email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 778.371.8179. Pre-registration is the best way to ensure your spot in class but drop-ins are welcome.
Parenting is an amazing experience. It also means facing new responsibilities and demands. It can take it out of you. And, so all caregivers are invited to attend. Come meet other parents in the hood- it takes a village.
This is a relaxing and energizing class where you can balance and re-energize and learn the principles of yoga to support yourself to be the best parent you can be. You will learn how to breathe so that you re-energize yourself. You will learn how to create awareness and move safely in postures and transitions to protect your back and strength your supporting muscles so that you can use that awareness to stay safe and strong with your babe off the mat. We practice both a gentle flow of postures and breathing techniques to help you handle the stress and fatigue of being a new parent. Best of all you get to bring your little bundle of joy with you!! We’ll spend some special time massaging and playing with them and including them in poses when it is suitable. In my class you get to make the practice work for you and your baby: whether you choose to include your baby in your pose or make faces at them while they hang out on your mat; whether you need to put them to sleep or are tending to a feeding or diaper need- anything goes. I just want you to feel good and comfortable! Class is tailored to pre-crawling babes but all babies are welcome to attend and no prior experience is necessary.
*Note: Modifications and specific postures tailored to support strengthening your body are offered in each class so new moms can feel safe easing back into a physical routine after birthing. However, please note that is recommended to wait 4 weeks after birthing vaginally or 6 weeks after a cesarian birth to start back into a physical exercise routine. And, its best to consult a healthcare professional to see if yoga is suitable for you at this time.
