Why do Postnatal Yoga?
It’s so exciting and awesome to have a new little one at home, but it can be sometimes hard to move our bodies when we are stuck under our babies 24/7. Strengthen and restore your body and mind with other new moms and babies in this gentle, flowing yoga practice. Strengthen abdominal muscles and release tension in the hips, shoulders and upper back. Re-condition the muscles challenged by pregnancy and child birth. This class is the perfect balance of community, laughter, relaxation, and strengthening.
All levels welcome, and no yoga experience is necessary.
Bring your baby along - they will be incorporated into the class whenever possible. Please note that while babies come to class with you, they are not used as props in this class. They hang out right in front of you close to the top of your yoga mat while you enjoy your yoga practice. 🙂

Where can I find quality postnatal yoga class in Mississauga?
There is an obvious huge physical shift that happens to a pregnant body due to anatomical changes of a growing child, also the enormous physical changes in the postpartum body due to emotional shifts and the new physical habits that come along with motherhood are often overlooked. As a new mother you may feel tired and somewhat overwhelmed at times by this major life change and responsibility. Without being aware you may also be changing your physical habits: you are likely holding, wearing, strolling, or feeding your child. Your new habitual positions may have you looking down at your baby, and the physical and emotional fatigue can lead to posture change. For instance, your chest may appear little sunken-in. As a new mom it is likely you are not paying attention to your own posture since you are very focused on your baby.
At Mind to Body Yoga our approach to postnatal yoga is what differentiates us from the others. As soon as you step into our home studio, you know you will be well taken care of through our experienced postnatal yoga teacher who is also a mother of 2 boys.
Our goal is to provide best postnatal yoga experience in Mississauga
New moms at Mind to Body can feel confident knowing that their yoga teacher is committed to their overall well-being. Our centre is community based differentiating us from others with similar offerings. Through the postnatal yoga practice, we influence the body to change its habits – open the chest, take up space, become “big” and “powerful.” The new mom can take on some of these postural traits and leave the class feeling grounded, energized and balanced.
