    Daytime postnatal Core Care Course in Frome, Somerset


    FROME - Monday mornings • 11.30 - 12.45pm

    small hygge home studio in Keyford area of Frome

    start date: Monday 13th January 2020


    If you've recently had a baby chances are that you're feeling it in your back, shoulders and wrists. Perhaps you're having issues with abdominal separation, your pelvic floor or feeling less at home in your body than before. These classes offer a regular nurturing space to reconnect to yourself while acknowledging the changes that come with early motherhood.


    Movements are yoga based with a good dose of postural alignment and practical life tips. Covering all the owie bits and looking at changes you can make to your daily habits that can improve make improvements that go beyond the yoga studio.



    Some women find it difficult to connect with themselves after birth, perhaps because of difficult birth experiences or because they feel different. Different to how they were during pregnancy or pre-pregnancy.


    Your body has transformed and this, combined with the inevitable massive shift in your lifestyle, hormones and sleep deprivation can take some time to navigate.

  • Practicalities

    When to join and what to expect...

    When can I join?

    Choose your package

    Join us any time after you've had your postnatal check up and have the go-ahead from your GP.
    These are small group classes with a maximum of 4 or 5 mums and their babies - so places are limited. Please email to check availability and start dates.

    What to expect?

    a place to BE as much as DO

    There are babies in the room. Sometimes mamas haven't slept well. Some folks will get more chance to move others will be tending to baby more. Try not to place to big an expectation on getting things done in class.

    You'll get back up material to use at home, classes are a space for community and being as much as doing the exercises. There's also space to sleep if you need it, extra eyes and arms to help with baby, people to listen to you, plus biscuits, tea.


    You can rock up in your PJs if it's that kind of a day.
    It's a no judgement zone.


    Classes are ideal for the first 6 months postnatal, whatever your experience: you may have had a caesarean birth, pelvic floor issues, abdominal separation or be breastfeeding - all welcome (provided your GP gives you the go-ahead).

    Balance & posture

    Yoga can help you adjust to the changes in your the body. Classes are designed to ease aching shoulders and get you back to moving after the birth of your baby.

    Maintain strength

    Movement to gently strengthen legs, arms and core muscles every week can help ease you through get through the early months of parenting.

    Soothe aches & pain

    Common pain areas such as tense shoulders and lower back pain can be gently stretched to help you get on with caring for your baby more comfortably.

    Time for you

    Having space and time to adapt to new motherhood can be vital for peace of mind. In classes there’s time to chat, share experience and meet other mums.
