Baby will be included in the yoga practice physically, mentally, and spiritually, building a strong bond of trust and security— the foundation of self-confidence for baby. If Mom is feeling comfortable, she can start 6 weeks postpartum (If you delivered via Cesarean, check with your medical provider first, usually at 8 weeks post postpartum). Yoga experience is optional, but baby required :) Please bring anything that baby may want/need; carrier, loveys, blanket, paci's, etc. 50 min.

All set to a funky playlist, and heated to a warm 85 degrees, this class offers the opportunity for challenge and will always be super fresh and fun.
