Connected Core for New Mamas at Namaste


  • Namaste Rockridge 5416 College Ave Oakland USA (map)

Stepping into movement and exercise and finding time for self care after baby and is not always an easy task. Your body went through an incredible transformation creating and birthing a tiny human (or a few of them!), and the impact of that journey on your body can be profound. Parts of your body might feel disconnected, stretched out and others tight and achy. Maybe you are noticing abdominal separation (Diastasis Recti) or are having a hard time connecting with your pelvic floor. Your care provider gave you the green light to start exercising again, but what is a mindful way to begin? 

Connected Core for New Mamas is a series built for new mama bodies. The recovery of core function after birth begins with finding optimal alignment, good breathing, and a meaningful dialogue with our deep core muscle layers.

**Appropriate for any mama with a baby 6-weeks or older AND after receiving an ok to exercise from your care provider.**

During the series you will:

·Meet for a weekly guided practice with hands on assistance 

·Have short daily video practices for at-home support (and access to the material for 6 more months after series ends)

·Get practical advice on how to care for your body in your daily life activities with baby to aid in your recovery

·Learn how to strengthen your core layers in a progressive manner 

·Learn how your pelvic floor functions as a part of your deep core system and why kegels might not be a fix-all recipe for all mamas

·Have a network of new Mamas to engage with and a community of support

·Lots of patience, compassion, and loving kindness toward your body is encouraged and there is room to progress at your own individual pace

·Pre-crawling babies are welcome to weekly classes (**please note that the Saturday series will not have a baby holder**)

The practices will allow you to rebuild a strong foundation and empower you to move with awareness as you work to strengthen a dialogue with your new mama body.
