Baptiste Power Yoga for After Pregnancy

Dave Farmar

Jump Back In

Welcome to life with your beautiful new baby. Are you ready to kick start your post-pregnancy power yoga practice!?

This is a traditional Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga class, safely modified for women who are resuming their practice after pregnancy and delivery. You'll be able to return to the physicality of your practice while making appropriate changes to the poses and flow for where you are right now. It is time to "Jump Back In” and take the time for your own self-care, so you can truly be able to effectively and lovingly care for others.

Dave is joined in this class by his wife, Anna-Lisa, 3 months after the birth of their 2nd child. She models the practice with strength and grace to Dave's distinctly detailed and empowering teaching.

PLEASE NOTE: This class is designed for women to resume an established power vinyasa yoga practices safely after pregnancy. If you are brand new to yoga or did not already practice power yoga or vinyasa yoga before you became pregnant, please instead check out one of YogaDownload’s other great postnatal classes.

Partner Yoga Restorative

Kristen Boyle

This Indieflow Partner Yoga Restorative class was originally created for expecting mothers and their partners to foster a deep sense of trust and connection before baby arrives. This class, however, is a beautiful practice for anyone wishing to create that deeper connection with their partner.

It is recommended that you watch this video in segments. See how to get into and out of one posture, listen to the instructions, then PAUSE the video to do the pose. Spend as long in each posture as you wish. Poses are intended for each partner to enjoy the more restorative part* so be sure to switch before moving on to the next posture!

* For a Prenatal practice, please note that the expecting mother is generally the one who enjoys the restorative aspect while her partner acts as the base.

** For a Postnatal practice, partners can switch, please be aware that a mother who has recently given birth is still working to regain core strength and stability.

Kristen loves to engage with yogis and to help you grow. As you practice this class, and any of the IndieFlow yoga classes on YogaDownload, if anything comes up for you, you are invited to leave a comment or question, in the reviews section and she will respond!

IndieFlow Postnatal Yoga

Kristen Boyle

Peace begins from within. As a new mom it is imperative to find a sense of calm, as life can feel more chaotic, especially when your baby is crying, dinner is cooking, and laundry is piling up. We begin this practice with a seated meditation and mantra: Sarvesham Shantir Bhavatu. My presence creates peace.

This Postnatal class (for women 6 weeks postpartum and beyond) will focus on some of the key pain points for new moms – shoulders and upper back, and hips, with an emphasis on the main concern of a postnatal mama – the mummy tummy! Kristen’s precise cues will move you through a well-rounded class of Sun Salutations, standing poses and other poses that focus on safely regaining core strength with thoughtfulness to having recently given birth.

*Before beginning this practice, please watch this FREE short video in which I discuss how to check for diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles. This is an important check before moving forward with core strengthening.

*Although the exercises and engagements discussed in this class are safe for you, if you do have a separation of the rectus abdominis muscles (diastasis) that you are aware of, please use a scarf or a band wrapped around your waist to draw the sides of your waist in, to cinch the rectus abdominis together as you work. Also, consider dropping to your knees if you feel weak or shaky in plank pose, for example, and back out of the depth any posture when necessary. Postpartum recovery takes patience. You will feel stronger with safe, consistent work. Pay attention to cues to bring more awareness to your pelvic floor and core, and over time, you will feel the benefits.

One final note: our babies are not with us for the filming, but by all means, this practice can be done with your baby. Simply place a soft blanket above your mat with your baby on it. As we move through Sun Salutations and other flows, it is a great time to engage, smile, and play peek-a-boo with your baby. If your baby needs to be held, simply hold her close to your body so you can maintain balanced alignment. This is good practice for you everyday!

Yoga for New Moms

Casey Feicht

This is a practice for moms with 6 week old babies up to 3 year old toddlers. Many moms with kids these ages find it challenging to get their yoga practice in, so this class is a perfect solution. You can do it all, or just 10,15, 20 minutes of it. We emphasize twisting to release toxins, we show ways to modify the poses, and we work on the core (the area most moms want back). Yoga for New Moms helps you get SOME yoga in, which is better than NO yoga! Enjoy the practice, and namaste and play!
