Mom and Baby Yoga

Mom and baby yoga

Fee: $54 for 3 weeks

Open

Kyle Dempsey shares, “The practice of yoga has been an anchor and refuge over this past year as I have transitioned into the role as a mother. I am inspired to share with others navigating early motherhood. I teach a dynamic and therapeutic Vinyasa flow, soundly grounded in breath work, alignment and in the fundamentals of anatomy. I strongly believe that yoga is for everyone (and their babies!) and every body. Recently, my teaching is influenced by my baby girl who reminds me daily of how challenging, ever-changing and beautiful life is.” 

This relaxing 45-minute class lets you bond with your baby while you exercise and connect with other new moms! You are welcome to stop to feed and comfort your baby as necessary. Please bring your yoga mat and water bottle, boppies and bottle warmers are available.

*If you are less than 12 weeks postpartum please be sure to consult your healthcare provider for clearance to participate.
