Postnatal Progress Yoga

Sunday 2 pm to 3:15 pm, UP Healing, Wellness, Adventure
8083 Georgia Ave.
Silver Spring, MD 20910

Postnatal Progress is a yoga class for mamas past their initial postpartum period (6 months+ to 4 years), who are looking to target key areas for strength building–lots of core work! pelvic floor! shoulders! back!–who feel ready to step back into a fluid and dynamic yoga practice, but are not quite ready to return to a vigorous or traditional yoga class.  This class is not suitable for those with prolapse or other significant injuries.

Students in the beginning stages of their postpartum journey (6 weeks to 6 months) should sign up for Postnatal Foundations, as that class will address early postpartum needs.

10 week session: March 3-May 12

*No class on April 21.
