Postnatal Yoga & Alignment - Amsterdam

The focus of this course will be on gently ‘closing’ and re-owning your body again. During the classes you will learn how to nourish yourself at a time that can be quite demanding. We will do a lot of shoulder openers, gentle practices and re-aligning. We will look at DR (Diastasis Recti; a -larger than desirable- split between both halves of the rectus abdominus) and how to ‘mind the gap’. The toning of the PFM (Pelvic Floor Muscles) will be addressed too. We will ‘close’ the body gently from the inside out, so you’ll safely prepare for the movements you loved and practised before your pregnancy.
Your babies are very welcome. There is no need to worry about babies crying or the need for feeding, changing, etc. Everyone understands. While you are busy with your baby, you can still observe the practice. Groups will be small.
