- Yoga warm-ups, stretches, strengtheners & flows for the mums as well as some adapted yoga postures that involve your bub.
- Exercises and breathing techniques that foster integrity and connection to core and pelvic floor.
PLEASE NOTE: There is absolutely no expectation of how any baby needs to behave during class. Some may snooze, others feed, fuss, need changing or soothing… and we just go with the flow.
This course is suitable for babies until they begin actively crawling. It is suitable for mums/parents with or without previous yoga experience.
NB: Please allow at least 6 weeks after birth before attending (8 week minimum if C-section or complicated birth). If in doubt consult your midwife or doctor.

About the teacher:
Kate McAnergney is a Registered Senior Teacher with Yoga Australia and has been teaching hatha yoga for 15 years. Kate and her family moved to Geelong in 2016 and soon after she gave birth her third child at home with Pia and Melissa from The Birth House in attendance! Prior to this Kate established and ran the successful yoga for mums and bubs classes at My Midwives Melbourne North in Brunswick, Melbourne.
Kate has 3 children (12, 8 and 2) and started teaching mums and bubs yoga by request to friends when her eldest was a baby. She was thrilled to see how much the other mums benefited from time spent breathing and feeling back into their post-birth selves. Often we (and our communities) put so much energy into focusing on growing and birthing our babies, how a mum fares postpartum can end up a long way down the list. Through the practice itself, yoga helps us feel real compassion for ourselves as we deal with the new challenges of motherhood. Added to that it’s fantastic medicine for sore, tired bodies!
