About this Event
Find your center, relax, and connect with your baby. This group class, with other parents, focuses on breathing and relaxing postures. You have the option of keeping the baby close to you on your mat or actually having the baby participate in the movements. As a bonus, babies are treated to a gentle massage (by you) at the end of class. This is a great opportunity to take care of yourself and enjoy simple yoga while meeting other new parents.
The class is led by Paulette Butler, Postpartum doula, and fitness coach.
?Baby age: 4 weeks to crawling
