I have a new addiction. A new love. A new magical haven for balance and I found it at the popular, mama and baby friendly studio, Evolution Yoga . Most of you Mamateurs in the Burlington area are likely very familiar with this gem. I went to a few pre-natal yoga classes while pregnant with Piper, and loved the Couples Yoga for Birth and Labor with Susan. Even my husband gave it the thumbs up and he isn’t one to give out unwarranted praise. We used many of the tips we learned during my very succesful VBAC! With two other little dudes at home and a busy work schedule I didn’t get to Evo as often as I would have liked.
So…. baby numero tres arrives and all the other aches and pains that come along with an after- bambino- body. Thank the heavens for maternity leave and a bit more free time. I started post-natal yoga with the Little Miss (hello amazeballs!) and we both really enjoy it. The classes are held on Thursday at 1:15 to 2:30 and Sunday from 12:15 to 1:30 at their Pine Street location. Be prepared to make some new friends, learn some helpful tips and most definitely RELAX!!
The instructor, Morgan, is a breath of fresh air and very soothing. Don’t worry there are not any handstand or crane poses in this class, just a lot of stretching of those core muscles that you can’t seem to find lately and deep relaxing breathing. Piper cooed through the entire class. She was sold, so I am sold. Check it out….Do it!
I also just signed my little dudes up for the Tots on the Move class in the Fall. I plan to rotate the boys for our special Mommy and me Saturdays. Finny is already a little yogi and I am sure he is eager to show off his tree pose and downward dog! Evo just opened up their Fall Baby and Kid classes so be sure to sign up sooner than later as these go fast!
Now onto the heavenly massage I got from Natalia. I felt like I was melting into the table. A true sign of a fantastic massage for me is when I have to stop myself from drooling onto the floor! She is just amazing. I may never get another massage anywhere else again and I have had many to compare. She books up quick so get in there asap for some much-needed Zen. You will leave like a happy bowl of jello!
Hope to see you ladies at one of the many phenomenal classes they offer.
