You can find our Holland Park studio at 50 Seville Rd, Holland Park - just next to Radiance Dance Academy on the corner of Seville Rd and Roscoe St.
Just look out for the beautiful brick building with parallel parks.
Classes involve a mix of you doing yoga while bub is on a blanket or mat, yoga while you hold your bub (if they're awake), some baby yoga (massage and guided movement) and an opportunity to chat and connect with other parents at the end of class.
You're surrounded by other parents so we promise you're in a safe place!
We encourage, and will support you to cuddle, feed (breast or bottle), console and change your bub if they need it, the teacher may offer to hold your baby (if you and bub are comfortable with that) so you can get some hands free time in.
There's also an outdoor space or reception where you can step out for a moment to help bub settle, and if you bring a carrier we can help you to get some movement in hands free!
You can join us anytime after you have had your postpartum check up.
From there, it's up to you when you think you are ready to leave your house, start moving and start socialising - for some of us this is almost straight away, for some of us it might take a month or two.
This is really up to parental discretion. Our suggestion is that this class is appropriate until babies are actively crawling. In other words; up until they are moving too much to keep contained!
When babies move beyond crawling, some are happy to sit with their parent for long periods of time, and others not so much.
When you start to notice bub is beginning to explore the studio space, is making it too far from you, may be disturbing the experience of other mums and younger bubs, or you are just up off your mat chasing them too often, it's probably time to find another activity you can both enjoy, that is a little more geared more towards your toddling bub.
