About

Who is it for: You just got your baby and would like to get back on the mat but you don’t always have someone to take care of your little one? Then this class is just what you have been looking for!

This class is meant for young parents and caretakers. As long as your baby is older than 6 weeks, but young enough to still be in their crawling phase, we would love to see you both with us!

What to expect: We will open the doors at 10:00 but the class starts at 10:30. You are welcome to arrive anytime between 10:00 and 10:25, so it hopefully gives you some flexibility in the morning and time, if needed, to feed your baby at the studio just before. Fed babies are happy babies :).

Then at 10:30 Kasia will take you through an Ashtanga Vinyasa sequence while your little one is lying next to you. We will let our mini yogis sleep, play or crawl around if they wish to do so, while we continue with the practice. We will close our practice with tea, fresh fruit and the option to meet/interact with one another.

You will not only find back your strength and flexibility, but also calmness and clarity of mind thanks to working with ujjayi breath (‘one breath one movement’). And by focusing on mula bandha, you will strengthen your pelvic floor muscles – an important one after giving birth!

Ashtanga is a dynamic practice, which can be challenging, yet also gives one lots of energy in return – something we strive for while being young parents. Repetition of the sequence can be also a great help if you wish to set up your home practice that for many of us is the only practice we are able to get to, when we have a little one to take care of.

Kasia will help you during the class, but also with any questions you may have about your home practice. She will share with you what she has learned so far as a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner and teacher, pregnancy yoga teacher and a mom of Lily and Miko.

What to bring: Many yoga mats, props and blankets will be available at the studio. But you may want to bring a mat with you as well, double mats can be great for you and your little one to lie down on. Please don't forget to bring formula, pacifiers, baby blankets and some toys for your little one; the more comfortable they are, the more comfortable you are :).

For the rest, just come with an open mind, and take it as we go. We may not always be able to practice fully with kids, but that's ok. We take what we get, adapt, breathe and move on. Just as we do during our motherhood journey every single day...
