Postnatal Exercise Series

PLEASE NOTE: CLASS SUSPENDED FOR THE TIME BEING
***
In light of the advice of Island Public Health to socially distance ourselves as much as possible, we have made the call to suspend our Postnatal Exercise Classes for the time being. We haven't made this decision lightly, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
***

A specially designed 6-week progression series of restorative exercises for the postpartum period. Classes will include a blend of breathwork, yoga, and strengthening exercises, all geared towards gentle activation of the pelvic floor and core muscles as well as parent-specific mobility exercises designed to functionally strengthen your body to meet the demands of carrying, feeding, and caring for your little one(s).

No experience necessary to join, this is a safe and supportive environment where anyone in need of postnatal support is welcome to join (babies who are not yet on the move are welcome to attend).

Drop-ins are welcome if space allows, although it is highly recommended to register for the full 6-week progression in order to gain the most benefit.

Please note, you must be at least 6 weeks postpartum with clearance from your care provider to begin exercising.

Class facilitated by Anne-Marie Mougeot who is an osteopathic practitioner, kinesiologist, and yoga instructor as well as a mother of two little ones.

Join us for Kirtan, an ancient devotional music experience. Sing if you want, dance if you want, sit and soak in the sounds. This call and response musical style is an important expression in the Bhakti Yoga tradition which draws the mind inward and is seen as a bridge between our inner and outer selves and an expression of our desire to know and love the divine within. There is no previous musical experience necessary to enjoy and participate.
