Mum & Baby
Being a new Mum can be a challenging roller coaster ride... whoever you are and however many times you've been through it!
Just getting out of the house and being surrounded by other Mums in a welcoming environment can transform your day. Add to that some gentle and rejuvenating movement in a beautiful relaxing space (with a cuppa!)... you've got yourself some serious feel good time.
Mum & Baby Stretch, Relax and Catch Up
Come and join other lovely mums and their babies at the Blagdon Hill studio. Reconnect with your breath and enjoy some gentle restorative Yoga movements that you can safely do with your baby in a relaxed environment. A hot drink, biccies and a chat await you at the end of the session.
About the session:
The session is 10-11.30am. Around an hour for the class and time for a chat and drink after.
Mums are welcome who are at least 6 weeks postnatal after a vaginal birth, and 12 weeks after a caesarean
Suitable for all babies up to walking age (around 1).
Ladies who have attended pregnancy classes and workshops at Hannam Health receive priority booking
Your baby is welcome in whatever state they happen to be in- crying, sleeping or smiling! We can’t control our baby’s mood (unfortunately...)
Babies don’t follow rules so there certainly aren’t any in this session. Do what you need to when you need to.
You are of course welcome to feed your baby at anytime and wherever you feel comfortable to do so in the studio. We have ‘at home’ facilities to warm anything.
There is plenty of room for prams, baby changing and toys. Bring whatever makes you comfortable.
Next session date: Thursday, February 7th 2019
Session price including refreshments is £10. Online transfer reserves your place. Contact Kim to book in: via online booking form or at email@example.com.
'Gezellig' Afternoon Mum Retreat
'Gezellig' (pronounced heh-sell-ick) is the unique Dutch word encompassing feelings of cosyness, comfort, relaxation and enjoyment. Everything that a Mum should feel on a precious Saturday afternoon off...
'You can't pour from an empty cup'- Motherhood can be all encompassing and sometimes being a good Mum means taking a step back for some truly well deserved self care. The afternoon is specially designed for Mums dreaming of some true space and rejuvenation time. This is a time dedicated to your wellbeing. Just find a willing babysitter and look forward to a luxuriously chilled time with other lovely Mums.
What will my gezellige afternoon consist of?
Welcome drink while you settle in to the rural glass fronted studio space at 2pm.
Enjoy gentle restorative Yoga based movements to release off tight muscles, gently encourage some engagement with your core and pelvic floor and some nourishing deep breathing practices.
Head in to the cosy farmhouse lounge to chill, chat and replenish by the roaring fire. You’ll be given your own wolly socks while you enjoy a warming drink and some yummy snacks. This is a time to check in with babies if you want to and express for those who need to.
The lounge and studio overlook the hot tub which will be bubbling away during good weather periods for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in some hot bubbly water (an entirely voluntary option!).
Once everyone is well replenished, we'll head back to the studio with cosy socks, pillows and fleece blankets for the ultimate in deep relaxation guided by Kim.
By 4.30pm you'll be feeling like a new woman and ready to head back to life as a lovely newly replenished Mum :)
Retreat price including refreshments & your cosy socks: £38. All Mums very welcome. To book or express an interest in future Mum retreats, please contact Kim via the online form above or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Private retreats for groups of Mum friends also available on limited dates. Any questions, feel free to ask anytime.
