Baby & Me Yoga
Spend quality time with your little one and intentionally move your body
If you are like me, having special time outside of the home to bond with your little one is impactful, heartwarming, and brings an immense amount of joy into your life.
The Baby & Guide Yoga classes are full of personal growth and body movement while we connect with our little ones. We will explore our bodies and our bond with our little ones as we work on strength, mobility, stability, and inner peace.
Babies (pre-walkers) - This class is ideal for little ones who are not walking yet and can hold their heads up. About 10-15 minutes of the class is focused on the baby's movement and development.
Me (adults) - This class is open to any caregiver, but the movement for the adults is focused on postpartum healing, which means more strength, mobility, and stability rather than flexibility. We also work on functional movements to help when caring for our little ones.
When: Saturdays at 3pm
These are designed to be one hour long, but I will arrive fifteen minutes early to feed my little one beforehand, and I will stay longer for any questions. We are mindful of breaks that people will need during the session, as such, the flow will be easy for people to come and go.
Where: Civano, Tucson, AZ (at the Tucson Pilates and Stretch studio) or Online Video Conferencing
Things to expect:
- Yoga mindful of our healing bodies
