Been there, done that, got the badge!

There’s nothing more wonderful than watching your children grow and as they do we mums must nurture both mind and body throughout the various stages of Motherhood. As a woman, we’re no strangers to change: menstruation, pregnancy, birth, menopause. So like a fine wine yoga can help us adapt to the various changes and maintain our uniqueness. Perhaps you are dealing with the tantrums of toddlers and teenagers? Or taking care of your grandchildren? Yoga4mums offers something for every mum.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing techniques to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components in a yoga class are the postures, Asanas, (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and the breathing, Pranayama. The practice originated in India about 5,000 years ago, and has been adapted in other countries in a variety of styles.

What are the health benefits of yoga for you?

Yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. A regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains, including low back pain, depression and stress. Our purpose is to inspire a better understanding and awareness of the mind and body using calming breathing techniques, gentle postures and relaxing meditations. The classes will help to release unwanted stress and tension, build strength and improve flexibility, developing a deep sense of inner peace and wellbeing.
