Pregnancy / Prenatal Yoga Classes
Stay strong and supple during your pregnancy with Eliza Coolsma´s pregnancy yoga classes. Studies say that practising yoga during pregnancy can help you sleep better, reduce stress and improve the strength of the muscles you´ll need during the birth.
Mama & Baby Yoga
Mama and Baby Yoga is a fantastic way to bond with your baby. If you were taking yoga classes beforehand, it´s an effective way to ease back into your own yoga routine. Becoming a parent can be stressful and yoga can be a positive experience for your own emotional health and you can meet other new mums.
There are many benefits for baby too. The movements can aid digestion and help to calm your baby. It can help your baby sleep better and keep them happy through the calming soothing motions.
Ayurvedic baby massage has been practiced in India for centuries. It can help to activate key bonding hormones between mother and baby, creates healthy skin, aids your baby´s sleep patterns, strengthens the baby´s immune system, increases the circulation of the blood and lymphatic system and can help to drain toxins from the babies system.
