Post partum yoga is ideal for starting a gentle physical activity with your baby. This course is primarily for mom and baby accompanies you. Yoga is the science of “living well”. It works on all aspects of the person, mainly on the physical, the emotional and the spiritual. It means “unity”, it is derived from Sanskrit “yuj” which means “to join”. The main goals of this course are gradual and gentle fitness and provide emotional, mental, physical and spiritual relaxation. You will feel your body “de-rust” during the sessions. You will re-appropriate your body following the many changes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Yoga acts on the systems: hormonal, circulatory, nervous, muscular and articular. Yoga practice relieves tension through exercise, breathing and concentration. It brings relaxation of the body and the mind, it relieves physical and psychic tensions.

It helps concentration and provides mental relaxation. It includes two words “prana”: “vital energy” and “ayama”: “expansion, extension”.
