Optimum Health, Fleet

The February / March block is 4 weeks, starting 26th February and running to 25th March (no class on 11th March as I’ll be teaching at a retreat in Morocco).
Your body has just done one of the most amazing things it will ever do: grow another human being. Much of your focus and energy will understandably be on your baby, but remember that you also need to take care of yourself.
Your delivery may have been complicated or straight-forward. You may have had a caesarean birth (C-section) or vaginal delivery. You may have laboured for a few hours or a few days. No matter what your delivery looked like, your body has been through a trauma. It needs time to recover.
bendy yoga provides nurturing, inclusive postnatal recovery yoga classes for mums and pre-crawler babies. Classes are small and friendly with a maximum of 8 Mums and their babies in each class. Suitable for Mums 6 weeks post-delivery, provided fit and well. Special precautions and considerations required with abdominal complications and Caesarean births.
