Welcome to Birthlight

Welcome to our training programme in Birthlight Postnatal Yoga. Yoga is applied to postnatal recovery as an extension of pregnancy yoga, incorporating all the benefits of yoga breathing along with the joy of movement and the stillness of deep relaxation. You will learn techniques for the practice of yoga primarily for new mothers and also for mothers and babies together. Postnatal yoga is not something done separately on a yoga mat, but as part of new mothers’ lives while caring for babies. In accordance with this principle, the Birthlight course will cover techniques of breathing, relaxation and gentle yoga movements to be taught to the mothers in many different positions and settings. In this way, our course promotes a truly holistic approach to baby care and parenting.

Birthlight aims to create a friendly environment with lively interaction whilst working closely with each individual student.

We hope you enjoy the course and move on to create your own classes bringing the benefits of postnatal yoga to many families.
