Postpartum Yoga and Support


at Three Queens Yoga (410 Monroe Street Philadelphia, PA 19147)

Join Shiya, Certified Breastfeeding Educator and trained Postpartum Doula, or this gentle, postpartum yoga class focusing on chest and upper back opening, hip opening and core restoration to help with diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA).

Did you know that 100% of women have some level of DRA in the third trimester. It is estimated that 66% of women have some level of pelvic floor dysfunction associated with diastasis recti. Yoga is a fantastic way to access the deep core musculature through breathing.

Come for yoga and stay for our, judgment free, parents support group! Shiya will have an infant scale for weight checks and weighted feeds available at each group meeting. 

This 8 week series we will expand our body movements during yoga, slowly layering on more challenging movements. Each week we will also focus on different discussion topics for the support portion of the class. Topics will include sleep, feeding, tummy time, infant massage and more! 

Please feel free to bring a blanket and any toys for your baby. This is a supportive, nonjudgmental environment for parents. Please feel free to stop feed, or comfort your baby as needed. The benefits of the class go beyond movement, sharing the space, the breath and supporting one another is equally as important to moving your body!
