postnatal Mother & baby classes
two postnatal classes EACH WEEK
IN PERSON AT THE WESTON METHODIST CHURCH, NEWBRIDGE HILL BATH BA1 3ES
Wednesdays 11-12:30pm & Thursdays 1-2:30pm
I’m delighted to be able to offer again my weekly 90 minute Postnatal Mother & Baby Yoga classes at the Weston Methodist Church. Over the years it has proved a life line for new mums where we can be in a safe space together to move, heal, eat, chat and really relax.
Having a new baby is when you need, more than ever, the support and care of a good movement and relaxation practice.
You can start attending either class once your baby is 6 weeks old and you have had your doctors check – as soon as you feel ready to gently move and stretch. And you can continue for as long as you like!
What to expect in the Postnatal mother & baby class
The Weston Methodist Church is a large airy space with plenty of room for you, your baby and your buggy, and it is wheelchair / pushchair accessible.
We start the class with a little catch up on everyone’s week and then get stuck into a yoga practice which follows the needs of the particular class that week. Sometimes the class is noisy and boisterous and other times the vibe seems mellow and calm.
The class is designed to common alleviate postnatal issues such as stiff shoulders, back ache and a weakened core and many of the practices can be done with babes in arms. Relaxation and breath work is key to your physical and mental well being so these are always part of the class.
And we finish with a cup of herbal tea and a homemade snack while we pack up and chat. Sometimes I invite a local baby or postnatal therapist or expert in to share their skills.
Would you like to try a class?
It’s so straightforward to join a class. You can pay for an individual class to try it out (£13 in-person) and then when you’re ready, purchase a 4 Class Pass or an 8 Class Pass. Class Passes have no time limit.
You won’t ever be out of pocket – if you need to stop coming to class for any reason before the pass expires, you will receive a full refund.
These classes are both held at the Weston Methodist Church, Newbridge Hill, Bath BA1 3EA. This is a large carpeted airy space with wheelchair / buggy access and plenty of space for buggies inside. There is a small kitchen area too in case you need to warm milk etc.
The entrance to the church is right by the mini roundabout at the top of Chelsea Road, next to Cadence Bike Shop. I’ve been teaching in this community space for years and love it’s warm and friendly atmosphere.
There is no specific parking at the church but you can usually find parking spaces in nearby residential roads. Just give yourself a bit of time to find a space. Careful on Chelsea Road as it has a one hour parking limit before 6pm.
