Postnatal Yoga

Postnatal Yoga in Mississauga

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. 🙂

Pre-registration required. Minimum 8 weeks commitment required.

Where: Non-heated room

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 holistic centre our approach to postnatal yoga is what differentiates us from the others. As soon as you step into our facility, 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.

Lovely knowledgeable teachers. The owner is super nice and gets to know her clients.The facility is clean, had a comfy atmosphere and offers free tea to practitioners, the only dislike I have id that there is Buddah images and statues everywhere and not everyone coming to the studio may not be a Buddhist. It would be nice if the studios itself did not have statues, other than that it is a overall great experience.read more

I did my Yoga Teacher Training at Mind to Body Yoga and it was one of the best decisions I've made. When you walk into the studio you feel a sense of home and community. The studio is beautiful and well kept. The training was in depth and very organized, while at the same time fun! Pritpal, the studio director who leads the training is wonderful and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the studio for YTT and also to practice in.read more

I was in search of a yoga teacher training program and stumbled upon Mind to Body....its become my second home ever since. The yoga teacher training program was very detail oriented and definitely prepared for my yoga journey. They covered a lot of topics like anatomy and basics of ayurveda as well. I continue to attend regular yoga classes there now. They offer many various different types of classes..my favs are the restorative and yin classes. The staff is very inviting and friendly and the studio is very very clean and well maintained. Oh yea...can't forget the complimentary delicious detox tea i have every time i attend a class is a bonus!!read more

If I could give Mind to Body more than 5 stars I would! Since starting at this studio 6 months ago, all my aches and pains have been eliminated. That's due to yoga but more so thanks to the personable, caring, passionate and dedicated instructors. It's a blessing to have found a yoga studio where each class by any instructor here is taught with so much passion and bring their own experiences and way of teaching, teaching the right techniques and foundations of poses (grounding feet and hands) alot of others overlook when teaching. They don't ever ever ever make you feel like you have to do a pose they always tell you to follow your body. Love the variety of classes, started with Restorative yoga and now on to hot detox yoga which I didn't ever think I'd do. Mind to body has a great community of employees and members who are always friendly with a huge smile on their faces. It's been so great to connect with other members especially while having the detox tea, yum! Honestly don't know how they keep it so clean with so many members but it's immaculate and shiny. Floors are always swept and mopped constantly. Couldn't have found a more amazing yoga studio, love you guys for all that you do! It's definitely been a life changing process and I'm excited to continue to grow in every way with all of you :).read more
