Birthlight postnatal aqua yoga teacher training

aquanatal yoga circle practice

Remember the first six weeks after the birth of baby? There is so much to learn and so much to worry about. An overwhelming and often isolating time when supportive links which have been built up during pregnancy can get frayed or break.

Birthlight Aqua Yoga bonds mother and baby effectively in our specially designed postnatal Aqua Yoga sessions. It actively builds on strengthening the continuum of support networks between women. This is essential for new mothers who are isolated from their networks during maternity leave.

This course goes in-depth into what happens post pregnancy and what can be done to help mothers on the next part of their journey into parenthood and develops skills learnt in Aquanatal Yoga. It is designed to provide postnatal exercises for women in the same supportive environment as their prenatal classes. Postnatal aqua yoga is for new mothers, either with babies or not in the water, or a combination of both. The focus is on the mother, not on the baby, but there are interactive elements and we lovingly involve babies to help mothers tone and stretch, using floats and buoyancy aids.

Research has led to an understanding that foetuses and babies are learning all the time about the world through affective connections with their mother. As an Aqua Yoga teacher and Tutor I am always amazed when I see this in practice when the women return for postnatal aqua yoga. Many babies often recognise my voice and the gurgling noises in the pool of the filters, connecting them back to when they were in the womb and to the voices and sounds they heard when their mothers attended their Aqua Yoga classes. It is a delight an honour to be able to share this with the mothers!

Birthlight Water Parenting provides wrap-around support to women and their families during all stages of pregnancy and birth and the early years of childhood and parenthood. In Birthlight we have specially designed classes which offer unique opportunities to mother-the-mother and nurture new life. Our Aquatic Nurture for Newborns course primarily focuses on the baby and is designed to provide the knowledge and practical skills to support parents in enriching their experience of the bath as a space of communication and development with their newborns in the early months (birth to 4 months), from baby baths to tubs and warm pools. Postnatal care is an essential part of Birthlight Water Parenting.
