We haven't taken it yet, but when searching for a Mama & Baby Yoga class in the Pioneer Valley, this sounds like a great one! Ruby and I definitely plan to take it soon.
I wanted to share this information, but couldn't find it online, so this is copy & pasted from the email info I get:
MOMMA & BABY YOGA CLASS
Bring your baby! From 6 – 7 weeks old up to experienced crawlers welcome.
Get back in shape, have fun with your baby, and connect with other parents.
• Center through breathing and awareness
• Reduce stress
• Get relief from aches and pains due to nursing and poor posture
• Recondition abdominals and pelvic floor
• Recover from rigors of childbirth
• Fun and therapeutic movement for baby
• Stay strong and centered through demands of childrearing
You can linger an additional 15 minutes at the end of class. In that time, we are happy to do poses with you that you might have missed because you were busy with your baby.
Om Shanti – Arden and Corinne
