Restorative Yoga for Postpartum and Parenthood

In this session Nadine discusses the benefits of a Restorative Yoga practice during postpartum and why it should be an essential part of a new parent’s self-care. Enjoy a 60 minute Restorative Yoga practice especially designed to support the postpartum body and nervous system.


Props are a significant part of a Restorative Yoga practice so ideally 2-3 blocks, 1-2 bolsters, 1-2 blankets, a chair, eye pillow and yoga mat. If you don’t have this equipment, cushions and large books can be helpful.
