Restore & Relax
A luxurious weekly class by candlelight that will leave you feeling restored, positive and relaxed for whatever lies ahead in your week.
Becoming a mum is full of adjustment and challenges. Often mums can feel pushed both physically and mentally with very little time left to focus on self care outside of the mum role. Care of your own wellbeing is more important than ever while caring for others.
Restore & Relax is a weekly class focused on positive wellbeing. This unique class will help you make the most of some precious time to yourself. Release off tense muscles with Yoga based movements, gently engage and restore your core and pelvic floor and focus on deep relaxation.
Postnatal ladies are advised to wait at least 6 weeks post birth (12 weeks post c section) and after being signed off as fit to take gentle exercise.
Classes run in 5 weekly blocks on Wednesdays 7.30-8.30pm. Any missed classes within the 5 week block can be exchanged for any other class on the Hannam Health program. Places will be limited- to reserve your place or register your interest for future 2019 blocks, please complete the online form below or contact Kim 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 :)
