Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy Yoga

Yoga is a wonderful way to to enjoy your Pregnancy, whilst preparing for Labour. It improves backache, increases stamina and awareness of breath and is deeply relaxing for both Mum and Baby.

The class starts with deep breathing and relaxation to centre you both, followed by warm up techniques and a Sun Salutation esp. designed for Pregnancy. Then we practice various postures and movements to help increase fluidity in the spine, relieve tension in the hips, pelvis and lower back, open up the chest and shoulders and strengthen the arms and legs. The exercises and breath work will help prepare you for labour and beyond and increase your confidence in your body’s ability to birth your baby with as much ease as possible. There is a huge emphasis on breathing throughout the class to keep your mind focused and relaxed and to release tension and stress. The breath has an essential role during labour to open up the birth canal, increase dilation and helps you to stay focussed and relaxed.

The class includes an emphasis on the pelvic floor muscles, introducing exercises to help keep good tone and improve circulation in your pelvic floor. Attention to this muscle group is extremely important during and after pregnancy and a wonderful way to prepare for birthing your baby.

Then to finish we focus on deep breathing techniques for Pregnancy and Labour and relaxation for both Mum and Baby.

Other benefits include;
- More energy
- Deeper breathing
- Releases muscular and mental tension and stress
- Relieves heartburn, sciatica and leg cramps
- Lovely time out for both Mum and Baby to slow down and enjoy this precious time together

No previous yoga experience is necessary and you can come after your first trimester; in your second or third, it’s never too late to start. Please bring a blanket for relaxation with you.

Classes are in Greystones and Wicklow Town, Co Wicklow.

Baby Massage

Baby Massage

See a video of Caroline giving a Baby Massage class on Ireland AM.

Baby massage is a wonderful way to learn how to massage and connect with your baby and it has amazing benefits for everyone involved.

It started with the founder of IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) Vimala Mc Clure, who travelled to India in the 1970's. While she was visiting an orphanage, she saw a woman massaging her baby and was inspired by the benefits it had on the child and mother alike.

So she went back home to States and developed the strokes for Infant Massage using her knowledge of Indian and Swedish Massage, Reflexology and Yoga. Shortly after that she founded the IAIM, which after 30 years is now in 50 countries.

The benefits for the baby include stimulating, relaxing, pain relief and interraction/bonding. It is wonderful for colic, constipation and wind, it aids deeper and longer sleep, relieves stress and anxiety after birth and it encourages a deep bond between baby and parent.

For you it is a great way to learn more about your baby's yes and no cues, it increases your confidence in handling and comforting your baby, reduces stress and most importantly it allows you to bond with and nurture your baby while having fun!

The classes are broken down into one hour sessions over a four week period. Each week we cover a different part of your baby's body, whilst having discussions on relevant topics. There are up to seven parents and babies there and it's a great way to meet other parents and share ideas and stories. Dads are very welcome.

Group classes are held in Greystones and Wicklow Town Co. Wicklow and one to one classes, in the comfort of your own home available in South Co Dublin and Co Wicklow.

Most health insurance companies allow you to claim the cost of these classes back so you can get them for free! Please check with your health insurance company to see if your plan covers this.

Mum and Baby Yoga

Mum & Baby Yoga Classes

Mum and Baby Yoga classes are for women who have given birth recently and are looking for a fun and relaxed yoga class where they can bring their baby along too. The classes help Mums to gently ease them back into shape, get a great stretch and have fun with their baby. It is also very social, where you can listen to other Mums advice and tips, learn some yoga for you and your baby and start to strengthen your pelvic floor and stomach muscles and relieve tension in your back.

You don’t need to bring anything with you, just wear comfortable clothes. Come after you and your baby’s six week check up and let your Gp know you are attending the classes.
Post Natal Yoga Classes are also available. These are a wonderful way for new mums to get some much needed time out for themselves. Benefits include strengthening core and tummy muscles, easing posture and backache, toning legs, bum, arms and pelvic floor and is deeply relaxing.
