Mums 'n' Bubs
Thursday 11.00am - 12.00pm
Inside Mona Vale Surf Club.
Our Mums n Bubs class provides you with an opportunity to bond with your young baby, whilst practising yoga designed to help both your physical and emotional well-being.
We combine yoga for Mum, with yoga for the baby. Each class integrates baby massage, songs, and nursery rhymes with yoga; including poses that increase co-ordination and help digestion. You'll enjoy watching how your baby laughs, gurgles and interacts with you on the mat, and love how soundly they sleep afterwards!
A Mum herself, Lou is a trained specialist in pre and post natal yoga and will guide you on how to safely strengthen and tone abdominals and pelvic floor. Read more about the benefits of this class below.

We help Mums strengthen and tone abdominals and pelvic floor. For those with diastasis recti (abdominal separation) we provide guidance on what poses to avoid and safe alternatives to help gently engage and strengthen the deeper layer of muscle, the transverse abdominis.
New Mums tend to get tight through the chest, shoulders and back from carrying and feeding their baby, so we work into those areas.
Each class finishes with relaxation to release any tension and clear the mind, so you leave feeling revitalised and ready to tackle whatever the day/night may throw at you – sleepless nights, teething, piles of laundry, or another nappy!
This class allow you to practice yoga in an understanding and supportive environment - we encourage Mums to look after their baby’s needs so you are welcome to change and feed your baby during the class. Meeting other Mums-to-be creates a sense of community, and the nurturing and supportive class environment helps women overcome any emotional challenges as they transition into motherhood.
