Covering progressive yoga practices for the early postpartum all the way through the postnatal year and how to integrate postnatal women safely into a regular yoga class, this course is for those who recognise this pivotal time deserves special attention and specific yoga practices. Birthlight practices acknowledge the fact that a good postnatal recovery, whatever the birth experience, contributes significantly to each mother’s long term health and well-being and to her ability to bond deeply with her baby over time.

  • Understand the physiology of the postpartum and what best supports recovery after birth
  • Offer Postnatal classes in a range of formats, 1:1,  group, with or without babies, as preparation for the 4th trimester, postnatal workshops and pamper days, or incorporate postnatal yoga into your baby massage or baby yoga classes.
  • Develop the skills and confidence to give appropriate practices to women in different phases of recovery, with different yoga experience, and with different postnatal symptoms
  • Learn how to incorporate babies into the session, without massage or baby yoga, so they don’t feel ignored and mums feel they can still do something for themselves.
  • Continue classes with women from your prenatal classes who already know you
