Using interactive, slow-moving postures, the class is ideal for adults and babies 4 weeks to crawling.

Baby and Me will help carry you smoothly through the busy early months of caring for a new baby.
What is Baby and Me yoga?
Baby and Me yoga is an hour long, interactive vinyasa yoga class designed to rebuild and restore strength often lost during pregnancy. We take into consideration the anatomical and physiological changes you experienced during pregnancy and mindfully focus on those areas so that you feel stronger and more balanced. This class also focuses on community building and offers an opportunity to connect with others who are navigating the path of new parenthood.
When is the best time to start Baby and Me yoga?
We recommend you wait until your bleeding has stopped, which is generally 4-6 weeks postpartum. For those who have had a cesarean birth, we ask you to wait 6 weeks for clearance from your care provider.
Can you do yoga with babies?
Yes! This class is designed to bring your baby into the yoga experience. While your baby is not doing the yoga poses, you will be interacting with your baby as you flow through poses. Your baby will also help you build some muscle strength since you will be lifting and holding them in some poses as well! This is a wonderful and impactful bonding experience for you and your baby.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do you wear to baby yoga?
Please wear comfortable clothes you can move freely in and please bring a baby blanket for your baby. We provide yoga mats and all the props you will need.
How does Postnatal Yoga differ from Baby and Me yoga?
Postnatal yoga is a 90 min class focused on the well being of the parent. While babies are welcome to attend, they are not directly involved in the class as they are in Baby and Me. Postnatal yoga also includes a dedicated time to abdominal and pelvic floor awareness.
Baby and Me, on the other hand, is a 60 minute class that integrates your baby into the class.
