prenatal & postnatal yoga with krista jones in athens ga
Frequently Asked Questions about Mom & Baby Yoga:
When can my baby and I start?
Baby: The class is designed for newborns up to 18 months.
Mom: It is recommended for moms to wait and start after you have been cleared for exercise by your doctor or midwife at your postpartum checkup.
What should I bring to class?
It would be totally fine to show up with nothing except your baby, but here are some options of things you may want to bring...
water bottle, yoga mat, blanket for baby to lay on, etc..
What if my baby wants to eat during class?
Many of the poses can be modified so that you can breastfeed or bottlefeed whenever your baby wants. This class is a breastfeeding-friendly environment so it's a great place to practice nursing in public.
What if my baby won't stay on the mat with me?
No problem! This class is the ultimate practice in flexibility and we are constantly adapting to baby's changing needs. This class is suitable for crawlers and walkers as well as newborns.
I have a toddler/older child - can I bring her to class also?
Definitely! There is a play area adjacent to where we practice that your toddler can meander in and out of as much as he/she would like.
What if my baby cries during class?
As mothers, if there's one thing we know, it's that babies cry sometimes. That is why we practice different techniques that will help calm and soothe a fussy baby.
Should I pre-register or just show up?
This is a drop-in class, so just come when you can!
The Mama and Baby community-style class will help you cultivate strength, increase energy, and nurture your well-being in the supportive environment of other new and/or seasoned mamas. Enjoy the benefits of a yoga class all while bonding with your baby, letting your toddler play with other little ones, or enjoying a class on your own.
