This 90 min workshop will give you tools to safely strengthen, release and restore your body after pregnancy and labour.

The workshop is for MAMAS ONLY so that you can focus entirely on YOU alone. The workshop is limited to only 8 attendees to allow for individual attention.

What you will learn:
  • How to safely exercise if you have postpartum issues such diastasis recti, prolapse or incontinence
  • How to use efficient movement patterns to restore your core
  • The importance of posture alignment for pelvic floor health and a reflexive core
  • Somatic mindfulness practices to integrate mind and body and relax the nervous system, and bring you back to you.

In addition, you will also receive material that you can use at home so that you can continue your practice in your own time.

This workshop is for women who are six weeks post birth.

Please note: The workshop is run in a non-judgmental environment supporting all parenting styles. Our approach focuses on kindness, compassion and empathy; attributes that we believe we already embody, that we can enhance in our parenting, and that we can encourage in our children too.

About Shelley

Shelley McCartenShelley McCarten’s love of yoga is the simple practice of being able to get out of your head, and into your body. Her classes aim to provide a down-to-earth, accessible and deeply fulfilling yoga practice. You will feel challenged, but not in a yoga-contortion-levitation kind of way! Be prepared to move mindfully, breathe deeply, and become more present to your body, mind and spirit.

Shelley has always had a deep interest in women’s health, and a huge love of children and babies so it is no surprise she specialises in pregnancy and postnatal yoga. Greatly influenced and inspired by the work of midwives such as Ina May Gaskin, she believes pregnancy yoga is the perfect way for women to connect with, and learn to listen to, the innate knowledge of their bodies. Prenatal and postnatal yoga also sets women on the journey to be more conscious and mindful in their day-to-day lives, which reaps positive benefits for the art of parenting, and for the upbringing of children too.

Shelley is accredited with a 240hr Vinyasa Flow and Hatha teaching certificate with Katy Appleton, and Well Woman Yoga Therapy and Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (author of Mother’s Breath and Yoni Shakti: A Woman’s Guide to Power and Freedom Through Yoga and Tantra).

Shelley takes our Dynamic Flow Saturday morning class and heads up our Pregnancy Yoga Course and is thrilled to be offering this Postnatal Yoga Workshop on January 28th.
