Our Mum and Baby Yoga classes offer you a supportive, relaxed space to nourish your mind and body postnatally through Yoga, while you have fun with your baby, and meet other new mums too!
Focus is on mammas in this class, enjoying the opportunity to stretch and strengthen postnatally and increase energy and fitness levels. We flow from Mamma Yoga to Baby Yoga for babies, with songs and rhymes and fun interaction for babies right up to 12 months.
The class ends with a lying down guided meditation. Deep relaxation allows your body to release tensions and tiredness, the mind to clear and the emotions to balance.
The classes are fun, informal and baby led. Mums will stop to feed or soothe their babies and will then rejoin. Tea in the cafe after class makes this class a great way to socialise and meet new friends while on maternity leave.
As a mum, Elaine knows the first few weeks and months of motherhood can be physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. Yoga can help bring a deep sense of mind and body wellbeing, and the chance to relax with your baby, and new mamma friends.
As featured on RTE’s “OPERATION TRANSFORMATION” with Kathryn Thomas on the importance of keeping fit Pre and Post Pregnancy. And also recently on the RTE Documentary ” FERTILITY SHOCKS”.

I have really enjoyed all the classes I have done with Elaine (pregnancy yoga, baby massage , baby yoga), but I must mention the Mum and Baby Yoga classes as the highlight of my week a busy mum of a toddler and baby.
I found this class was the one hour in the week where I could have some one on one time with my baby, and I left the class each week feeling totally relaxed and energised.
You don’t realised how much tiredness and tension you are holding on to until you let it go during the class.
Thanks so much. Jennifer and Ryan
