This fun relaxed class allows mums to experience the benefits and joy of yoga and pilates with their babies, and enjoy a lovely relaxation at the end. All levels of fitness and flexibility are welcome. You’ll stretch and strengthen, breathe and relax, and enjoy special time out with your baby and the other mums and bubs. It’s ideal from 3 months after birth until baby’s crawling.
“I hang out for this time every week to just be with my baby.” - Susie
``It's a very warm environment and a relaxing way to bond with your baby (and watch them bond with you and other babies) while we do some much needed stretches. The best thing is being able to just have a laugh and forget about chores that never get done at home.`` - Lola

The moment you were conceived as a female, your body-mind contained all the instructions it needed to know how to conceive, give birth to and nourish your baby.
Soften, open, relax, let go.
You are a strong birthing woman.
Every time you practice relaxation you produce calming, feel-good hormones. They flow via your bloodstream through your body, making you feel good. They also flow through your placenta, through the umbilical cord into your baby, teaching your baby how to be calm and peaceful. We all want a calm baby!
Always, always come back to your breath. In, and out. Soft and gentle.
Choose how you want to respond to every situation rather than reacting without thought. There’s always a moment before you act where you have a choice – how will I act now?
Just as your body knows how to conceive your baby and grow your baby, it knows how to birth your baby. It wouldn’t go to all the effort to grow your baby then not know how to get the baby out.
Your pelvis stretches open and the baby’s head moulds to become smaller. That’s how the baby fits through the birth canal.
Soft shoulders, soft face, soft jaw, soft pelvis.
Send a smile to your baby. Smiling produces feel-good hormones.
