Yoga for New Mums
Yoga for New Mums is a modified vinyasa flow designed for women who have recently given birth and are keen to get back on the mat. It’s a balanced flow that strengthens the whole body, while simultaneously relaxing areas of tension and tightness. Yoga for New Mums focuses on gentle stretching & releasing achy muscles, whilst restoring the core & strengthening the pelvic floor.
With the ambient lighting and cosy atmosphere of the pod that make our signature classes so popular, but with the heat switched off for a gentler practice, our post-natal classes are the perfect middle ground for new mothers to reconnect with both body and mind.
Suitable after your postnatal check. The best time for postnatal yoga following birth is 6 weeks post vaginal birth & 10-12 weeks post abdominal birth, until your ready to move to a general yoga class.

Childrens Yoga & Teen Yoga
Children's Yoga classes are exciting, creative and calming, combining fitness, fun and relaxation in each unique class. Yoga and mindfulness is combined to encourage kids to grow in confidence and to the best of their ability.
Each session is 30 – 45 minutes and takes children aged between 2.5 and 16 on an imaginary adventure, which they act out using Yoga postures. They release physical tension from the body by stretching and practicing calming breathing exercises before lying down for a relaxing ‘eyes closed story’.
The children will use their imaginations through yoga and have great fun they are also improving their health and studies have shown their academic ability.
