Pre and Postnatal Yoga and Pilates.

Gentle pilates exercises and Yoga asanas (postures) combined with pranayama (breathing techniques) will maintain strength, flexibility and promote relaxation, helping your body to cope with the physical and mental demands of pregnancy and childbirth.

We offer Prenatal Yoga (Saturday at 11.30am) and Pilates – a combination of Matwork and Reformer (Tuesday at 6.30pm).

Postnatal Yoga and Pilates is suitable for mums who are 6-8 weeks post natal or 10-12 weeks following a ‘C’ section delivery. Adapted Pilates exercises, Yoga asanas and pranayama help regain strength and tone in the core and pelvic floor muscles, improve posture, reduce the occurrence of back ache, promote upper body body strength and stability to help with the demands of feeding and carrying your baby. Your practice will promote relaxation and a deep sense of calm.

 

 

Pregnancy and Post natal massage

Pre natal massage. pre natal massage is specifically tailored to provide relaxation, space and connection between mother and baby. It is beneficial to relieve aches and pains that are specific to pregnancy, as your body changes and grows to accommodate your baby.

Post natal massage. With a new baby to care for and nurture it can be hard to find some previous time to yourself, but keeping yourself healthy and happy is even more important now. As a new mum, your focus and energy is mainly all on your baby . Taking an hour or 90 minutes out to consider and focus in on your needs both physically and mentally can be restorative and much needed time out for yourself.

Massage can be book with Clare via the Ayurvedic Massage page on the website.

My sessions with Clare have made me feel more positive about my body again. Clare paid attention to every single detail to help with all my particular issues (back, stomach muscle separation and pelvic instability after pregnancy). I started to see improvements after just a couple of sessions.

I remember day 1 of my Ayurvedic training. Listening to my teacher (and Ayurvedic Doctor) I was a little baffled when she was describing signs and symptoms of imbalance. Emotional imbalance which can affect how we view and treat ourselves and others around us. .Physical imbalance which can manifest from poor digestive function…..I felt that she was describing me. How could this be the case if I had never met her before that day? .Put simply, when the doshas become imbalanced, we see an imbalance in the elements of fire, water, air, ether and earth. .Here’s a typical example I see a lot. An imbalance in Pitta dosha results in too much heat in the body and mind. We might experience acid reflux, inflammation in the skin, joints or digestive system. Emotionally we might be angry, judgemental and dissatisfied. .Ayurveda teaches us to restore balance by adding the opposing qualities….basically cooling things down. Cooling foods and activities. Diet and lifestyle is the first line of treatment in Ayurvedic Therapy. Although originating in India, Ayurveda does not conform to any culture. It teaches us to live in harmony with the environment in which we live. .Clare (that’s me) is an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Massage Therapist at Lotus Studio. You can book a Nutrition Consultation or Massage with Clare via the website. Also, look out for our Ayurvedic Workshops for 2022.Classes tonight at the studio: Yoga: Strong Flow with Jennie.
