Parent & toddler yoga

Wednesdays 9.30-10.30
Phoenix Community Centre, opposite The Level

Parent & toddler yoga is a great way to support yourself physically and emotionally as a parent, and you can bring your toddler too.

  • Reconnect: ground yourself. Toddlers benefit greatly from seeing parents practise yoga and meditation – it helps model how to cope with and ease stress.
  • Rebuild: strengthen, stretch and tone, and increase physical and emotional flexibility to help handle the demands of family life.
  • Increase energy levels: postural awareness and breath work can help create more vitality.
  • Community: meet other like-minded parents
  • And breathe: yoga classes are a great way to centre and focus, find space and to experience just being amidst all that constant doing.
  • Shift self-perception: yoga helps you recognise that nothing is static, so emotional and physical sensations are constantly moving. This can help us to deal with the challenges of parenthood.
  • Enjoy! yoga classes are light, fun and relaxing, setting you up for the day ahead. Toddlers can play or join is as they like. Always advisable to bring a favourite (quiet!) toy and a snack too.

I have been teaching parents and children for nearly a decade now and am passionate about using yoga to help improve people’s experience of parenting.

Cost: £10 drop in (older siblings most welcome during the holidays, £2 extra per child)

I also run UMEmamas, a peer-to-peer support group for Mamas, and UMEpapas for dads, which have a supporting and nurturing Facebook forum too.
