Other Classes Offered at Mindful State Yoga
Baby & Me / Toddler & Me Yoga
The postnatal period is a period of transformation, and Amy’s Baby & Me and Toddler & Me classes offer parents a gentle practice to help guide post-birth recovery, bond with their baby, and connect with other new parents. These classes offer all of the benefits of postnatal yoga while also bringing the baby into the yoga space. Baby & Me Classes are intended for newborn to crawling age; walking babies through age two should attend Toddler & Me Classes.
Amy’s Fertility Yoga Class is a twelve-week series designed for people seeking to become parents now or in the future and/or improving their chances of conception. Practices in mind/body/spirit designed specifically for fertility will be introduced. To that end, this class provides a supportive, encouraging, empowering, safe, nurturing, and relaxing space for parents-to-be as we work to open and create space for creation, calm the mind, open the heart, reduce stress, increase oxygen to the tissues, bring blood flow to the pelvis, and unblock energetic obstructions. No yoga experience is required. Amy offers Fertility Yoga in regular series in order to build a sense of community and support.
Amy’s Postnatal Class is designed for the postnatal period as the parent’s mind and body are still transitioning. This class focuses on gentle, restorative, nurturing postures and practices that help speed recovery, reconnect mind and body, and help battle postpartum depression. The sequences are created to bring a new parent increased energy, focus, relaxation, and increased self-esteem. Postnatal yoga can help new parents facing recovery from the physical effects of birth, including stretched and loose abdominal skin and muscles; a stretched pelvic floor and cervix (if vaginal birth) or recovery from abdominal surgery (if caesarean birth); tight back and hips; neck and back pain; and physical exhaustion. Postnatal yoga can help new parents facing emotional issues post-birth as well, including adjusting to new roles, sleep deprivation, mood swings, and emotional exhaustion. While it is best to get approval from a healthcare provider to begin this or any postpartum activity, a general rule is 4-6 weeks after a delivery and 6-8 weeks after a caesarean delivery are appropriate times to begin postnatal yoga.
