heal, strengthen + nurture with postnatal yoga
At triyoga, bonding with your little one is not a solitary affair. Postnatal yoga classes are a great way to get back into shape without needing a babysitter. Bring your little one along for some parent-baby bonding + be part of a yoga community of new parents.
benefits of postnatal yoga

when to practise
It is important to rest initially. The first 6 weeks after birth are a time for bonding with the baby and for the mother to recover. By the end of the first eight weeks of the postnatal period, women should be ready to return to their regular practice, but it is important to listen to what your body is ready to do. Women with a yoga practice prior to pregnancy should be careful and not rush back into their usual yoga practice. Consult your GP for advice on when to resume practising.
