Mom & Baby Yoga
*** Dates for the next series coming soon ***
The New Mummy Co is delighted to offer expert postnatal Mom and Baby Yoga classes in our beautiful studio in North West Oakville, also available virtually via Zoom across the globe. Our postnatal yoga classes are the perfect solution to gently guide your body gently but effectively post delivery. We offer emotional and physical guidance through the restorative practice of yoga to help you feel fully equipped and empowered as a new mummy, while you forge an even deeper emotional bond with your baby. One hour long and at your pace, the benefits of our yoga sessions can be felt after the very first class.
It is always best to check with your doctor before starting a new training routine.
Your body has been through something extraordinary. The physical changes and hormonal fluctuations that you experienced may have been challenging, but these are challenges that we can assist you to overcome with our specifically created classes. Practicing yoga is as much about maintaining emotional well-being as it is about keeping your body in optimum shape. Focusing on breathing exercises, strengthening pelvic floor muscles and mom & baby bonding, our classes will calm your thoughts, harmonize your emotions and create holistic and symbiotic balance.
Rejuvenation For Mummy
There is no gentler or more effective reintroduction to health and fitness after delivery than postnatal yoga. Our experts will help to strengthen your body while you enjoy quality time bonding with your baby. Through long-established posture techniques for stretching and breathing you will be led through an interactive session that will increase muscle tone and promote emotional well-being in a fun, collaborative environment. All levels of fitness are invited to join as each person attending will also be postpartum so every body is welcome.
Calming Rewards For Baby
The poses, flows and movements that you and your baby will enjoy are chosen for their repetitive and soothing effects. We incorporate song, calm stimulation and gentle stretches that are known to aid the baby in improved digestion, ease colic and to help to develop healthy sleep patterns.
Share Your Experience
The restorative results of our yoga classes are a balance of mind, body and emotion. They also offer something that all women need during one of the most exciting, fulfilling and life changing times. That is the friendship, support and understanding from the other new moms that you will inevitably bond with during our intimate small group and relaxed classes.

What is postnatal yoga?
Postnatal yoga uses considered movement, breathing exercises and relaxation methods to help you to reconnect with your amazing body post-delivery.
When can I start exercising after giving birth?
You should be at least 6 weeks postpartum and have the all-clear from your doctor or health care professional to start exercise classes.
Is it safe to exercise after delivery?
Getting the all-clear from you doctor or health care professional is very important before you start exercising. Once you have that you are in the safest of hands with our fully certified instructors who are experts in guiding your body through effective postpartum movements. Listen to your body and rest or stop whenever you need to.
What if this is my first exercise after having the baby?
You know your body best, so do what feels right for you. Don’t over exert yourself, as movements you did prior to baby will feel different post-baby. All levels of fitness are welcome to join the classes.
What should I wear?
A well-fitted sports bra is any new mother’s best friend! Comfortable stretch-material clothes that include a few layers, is all you need. If you are breastfeeding you may want to consider a top that provides easy access as we know small babies often want to feed frequently.
What if I need to feed my baby?
You can stop at any time to care for your baby. Feeding the baby before the session starts would be best if possible to avoid interrupting your class. However we know that the nature of this class means that you may need to feed your baby and you should take all the time you need.
What if my baby cries?
Our classes take place in a studio specifically designed for the purpose, led by experienced instructors, and taken by fellow new moms. You are in a safe place where everyone around you understands that all babies cry. At any time that your baby needs your attention, you are free to stop and give them the care that they need.
