We’ll leave the more official definitions to the medical professionals, but we can safely say that depression, anxiety and difficulty sleeping are standard symptoms and nearly 80% of new Moms are affected.
What is postpartum yoga?
While the term “postpartum yoga” isn’t usually used, a lot of the poses, stretches and breathing involved with Postnatal yoga help to relieve the symptoms often associated with postpartum depression and new Moms.
How will taking yoga classes help me with postpartum depression?
The truth is that it would be hard for yoga NOT to help you, regardless of your condition. Just getting out and being in the world again has an effect, and meeting other new Moms is a huge help as well.
With yoga, the release of stress through stretches, poses and proper breathing will help your mind to rid itself of everything negative and allow your mind and body to meld and heal. Distractions become distant and the mind is able to simply focus on the body.
There are various and specific yoga poses that will gently help you through this difficult period.
When are your postnatal (postpartum) yoga classes?
The postnatal yoga classes are currently scheduled for Thursdays at 12:00pm., however all types of other classes are offered each day and our expert yoga instructors are always available to help you with private yoga lessons as well.

But none of these will happen if we don’t take care of ourselves first.
Moms are ‘givers’ by nature, this we know. But you really do have to have to believe that giving back to yourself is not a selfish act. It’s a necessity.
