How Post-Partum Yoga Benefits Mum And Bubs

A lot of new moms feel a strong drive to start exercising as soon as their doctor or midwife gives them medical clearance. While some may join “mommy and me” walking groups and others hit the gym, yoga has quickly become one of the most preferred methods to get back into shape.

Why Yoga?

Yoga was originally developed in India as a form of meditation. But apart from relieving stress, it also delivers a number of important benefits for moms including:

  • An improvement in posture
  • An improvement in sleep
  • A reduction in blood pressure
  • A normalised weight

Another reason why manynew moms choose yoga is because there are several classes offered at gyms and community centers which focus solely onpost-partum yoga exercises and even incorporate your babies into your exercise. Some classes include poses for baby which can solve problems such as crying and colic.

What To Have In Your Yoga Bag

Preparation is key in order for you to have the best yoga session (or “practice” as yogis call it) possible with your baby. Dress your baby wear comfortable and loose fitting clothing for the workout, bring one or two favorite toys, and, depending on baby's age, bring some snacks along.

For yourself, you should make sure that you have packed:

  • A yoga or exercise mat
  • A yoga block (optional but useful)
  • A water bottle
  • A medium support exercise bra (you will not be jumping or moving quickly so you do not need high support)
  • Breastpads (optional)
  • Atank ortee

Yoga pants or supportive maternity pants

AtPeachymama, we have a wide range of tanks and tees which are perfect for wearing before, during and after a workout. Our shirts make it easy for you to flip up or pull down your exercise bra so you can then discreetly feed your babies right there in the gym or yoga studio.

A lot of new moms also use ourhigh wasted post pregnancy pants as yoga pants. We have three different styles –narrow bootleg,skinny leg andthree quarter gathered – all of which not only can be worn as stylish yoga pants, but which will provide much needed additional tummy support and control. Because the pants are seamless, they will also not rub against and irritate any sensitive areas.
