Get social interaction and physical activity at the same time in our parent-child classes, when offered. Group sessions are currently on hiatus, but you can gather a small group of friends and schedule this class at your convenience. Read on for details.**
Bond with your baby, build back strength, tighten your core and meet other parents in our Baby Yogalates classes. This program focuses on recovery from pregnancy and birth, devoting extra attention to the shoulders, back, chest and other muscles most affected by carrying and breastfeeding babies. That said, dads and adoptive parents will get a great workout and bonding experience, too!
In addition to stretching, the Pilates component will give you a chance to get a true core workout using classical exercises modified to incorporate your little one.
Babies benefit from spending quality time with you, too! When they’re not being held during a pose, they’ll rest on or near your mat, watching as you flow through the movements. You’ll also have opportunities to guide your baby through gentle stretches and Pilates exercises designed to improve balance, circulation, digestion and range of motion.
Don’t worry about your baby “disrupting” class – we fully expect to hear cooing, fussing and squealing. Even if you’re interrupted to feed, change or soothe your little one, we’ll do our best to make sure you still get a workout.
No prior yoga or Pilates experience required — just make sure you’ve been cleared for postpartum exercise (generally 4-6 weeks after giving birth), if that applies. Dads and adoptive parents can get started any time. Best for babies who are not yet actively crawling.
Wear: Comfortable workout attire. Shoes are not necessary.
Bring: Water, a blanket for the baby and your diaper bag. Mats available at the studio, or you can bring your own.
