Introducing…..Nurture by YogaBellies!
We have created Nurture by YogaBellies to support mothers immediately post-natally, traditionally a time when we were supported by ‘the village:’ a community of women arounds us, such as grans, aunts, friends and neighbours.
In today’s society, women tend to be left home alone with their newborn baby while their partner goes out to work. But without this community and support we are suffering – and seeing more and more women have post-natal depression. Nurture offers that support and care that modern women no longer seem to receive.
Embracing Ayurvedic, African and Eastern post-partum self and infant massage techniques, rituals and philosophies, we have created ‘a village’ for our mothers. A unique blend of care and recuperation for mother with baby, Nurture is not a yoga class. You can start immediately post-partum and can bring baby along or choose not to, it’s entirely up to you.
Here are 5 reasons you need Nurture in your life as a new mother.
1. YOU NEED SUPPORT – YOU NEED A VILLAGE
Nurture by YogaBellies was created to support mothers immediately post-natally. Traditionally, this was a time when we were supported by ‘the village:’ a community of women arounds us, such as grans, aunts, friends and neighbours. In today’s society, women tend to be left home alone with baby while their partner goes out to
work. More and more women have post-natal depression and suffer feelings of guilt, self-loathing and disappointment that they cannot fulfil their role like other mothers. The myth that women are supposed to raise a baby single-handed is one we want to dispel. You don’t need to be immediately post-partum, this class is open to all mothers – the highest rate of PND is at 4 years post-partum so we don’t discriminate on the age of your child. All mothers are welcome because we’re always going to need that village and that time for ourselves.
2. YOU WILL TAKE TIME TO NOURISH YOURSELF
Embracing traditional post-partum self-care, aromatherapy, massage and nourishment practices, we have created a nurturing environment for our mothers. A unique blend of YogaBellies care and recuperation for mother with baby, Nurture is not a yoga class. You can start immediately post-partum and can bring baby along or choose not to.
3. YOU’LL ENJOY THE DEEPEST RELAXATION
Our YogaBellies SLEEP sessions incorporate the use of custom blend of ancient tones, theta waves and self hypnosis to allow you and baby to enjoy the deepest levels of relexation, Neep a nap? No problem! Enjoy! There is no pressure to perform in this class.
4. REVIVE AND RESTORE
You and baby will leave our Nurture classes feeling deeply relaxed but also energized and ready to tackle the day ahead! Looking after yourself should never be an afterthought – self-care is not selfish.
5. YOU WILL LEARN LIFE SKILLS
In Nurture you’ll learn sacred practices and relaxation techniques you can use every day outside of class. We discuss important post-partum topics that no-one else wants to talk about.
