Post Natal Yoga

Classes are designed for the postpartum body. We focus on rebuilding strength, flexibility and overall energy. Mums with or without bubs are welcome to come along to our day classes – just as soon as you’ve had your 6 week postnatal check. Bubbas up to the time they are getting to be nifty crawlers are welcome. Our evening post natal classes are designed for you to be able to leave your bubba with a carer, so that you can enjoy important time to yourself.

Poses, or asanas used will be in a flow-like vinyasa class and will also focus on shoulder-opening, re-building abdominal strength, as well as helping to bring ease and relaxation back into your schedule to help you feel rested.

Vanessa has been a devotee of yoga for over 25 years. Having completed her foundation teacher training in Hatha Yoga at the White Lotus in Santa Barbara California, Vanessa has gone on to further study and teach a fluid vinyasa practice, yin yoga, pre and post natal and yoga nidra. More recently Vanessa has developed a fertility yoga practice for Genea IVF that centres on the sacral chakra with the use of asana and mediation to open the body and mind, releasing tension in the body while nourishing the reproductive organs and restoring physical and emotional balance. Vanessa believes a regular yoga practice is essential to cultivating a true mind and body connection, so essential for supporting any fertility journey. She credits her yoga practice to her success with her IVF and the healthy pregnancy and birth of her twin boys.
