This 6 week course with Hayley is designed for new mums to melt away stress, tension and fatigue whilst focussing on stabilising and strengthening the pelvic floor, abdomen, spine, neck and shoulders; addressing issues unique to your postnatal body. The course will be delivered in a methodical and playful way, providing the opportunity to become reacquainted with your body after carrying your baby throughout pregnancy. The classes provide a space to nurture yourself, share your practice with your baby and connect with other mums.

We welcome new mums (with, or without babies) from 6 weeks after a vaginal birth and 8-10 weeks after a c-section birth (upon the advice of your GP), until your baby is crawling.

The cost of the course is £60 for 6 weeks - that’s just £10 a class!
