  • 4-6 weeks after giving birth, a mother can do gentle stretches and pelvic floor exercises. However it is recommended that a woman wait 3 months after giving birth before resuming a full primary series practice. This waiting period allows the uterus to shrink without interference and the muscles, ligaments and joints to strengthen following the pregnancy and birth to avoid injuries. Since Ashtanga Yoga directs energy upward, wait until all of the lochia has been expelled from your uterus to avoid causing cramping and prolonged bleeding.
    When you do start practicing again, forward bending movements should be deepened very gradually.
    As early as is comfortable, resume the practice of Mula bandha to firm up the perineum and prevent incontinence. Uddiyana bandha becomes easier to perform as the uterus shrinks down to its pre-pregnancy size.
  • If you have had any complications after your caesarean such as an infection, please talk to your doctor before you begin exercising again.
    Normally 8 - 12 weeks is recommended.
  • The practice of Yoga supports the student to develop an intimate relationship with their body, and how to treat it with respect. Our teachers work very gently and closely with all students, giving particularly attention to those with injuries. Done correctly, Yoga is a perfect supportive remedy for most injuries and conditions.
  • Sorry, we are separate studios. Please refer to the white pages.
  • Yoga Om has parking space for up to 10 cars. There is plenty of 3 hour free parking near Hyde park, which is only a 2 minute walk from Yoga Om. Please do not use the side streets to park, as it can be very inconvenient for the locals.
  • We have mats and blankets at Yoga Om. Please bring a small face towel to mop up sweat where necessary.
