    Register

    This is an energizing flow yoga class for new moms to share quality time with their babies. It is a supportive group for moms to practice yoga and the ideal way for new mothers to begin activity after birth.


    Moms will experience flowing and challenging postures, as well as calming restorative time in a playful and safe environment for babies.

    Poses will help mom refocus, regain strength and flexibility and soothe muscles from nursing and holding baby. Learn Baby Yoga poses to strengthen growing muscles, aid in digestion, promote better sleeping patterns, and help your baby towards their next stage of development.

    Note: During the class, moms may stop to feed or soothe baby and rejoin the practice when it is possible and comfortable to do so.


    Babies from 6 weeks old and not actively crawling are welcome. Previous yoga experience is not necessary, but is helpful. 

    ** If you or your baby are sick, please stay home to rest and recover. Remember, there may be young infants with little or no immune system that may be vulnerable to exposure to illness **
    Note: The teacher reserves the right to ask any ill attendees to leave the class. If this occurs, you will not be eligible for a makeup class.

    Join Liu, a registered OT, as she works with parents to bring mindfulness and self-care practices to their daily lives.

    Photo by Lesly Juarez on Unsplash

    When we talk about self-care, what are the first things that come to your mind? Can you list a few examples? Do you put your self-care as priority and associate these activities with “fun” or “necessity”? If not, what are the barriers? As moms, we can all relate and acknowledge that having proper self-care is not always the easiest thing to do. However, self-care impacts every aspect of our mental health. In this workshop, we will explore the definition of self-care, barriers to self-care, goal setting, and mindfulness practice in the hopes of achieving some mental stability in the midst of all the chaos at home.

    Mindfulness practice has been shown to be effective in the reduction in a few mental challenges, such as depression and anxiety. At the end of this workshop, we hope that you will begin incorporating mindfulness as part of your self-care routine and become able to utilize these skills to build resiliency.

    This is an adult focused workshop.

    There is a small fee for this program. If this fee is a barrier for you to attend, please contact Allison (niagara@lifewithababy.com, 9059804263) and we can work with you.

    What better way to spend a morning than at this exciting fire station.


    The kids will get to explore the station, meet the firefighters, and learn all about the fire station! The safety of the guests is very important so therefore the group leader needs to keep track of everyone while working with the on shift Captain. The tour will consist of a brief introduction, a fire safety presentation, a tour of the vehicles (they will be allowed into them) and we will demonstrate what a Firefighter looks like in full personal protective equipment.

    Note: If the fire station gets a call, they will have to respond!

    ***PLEASE NOTE:***

    This event is limited to 15 people only so please add all adults or kids coming with you to the event under guests.  And also, indicate the number of kids attending and their age during registration.

    If you haven't joined us yet head over to www.lifewithababy.com/join to become a member! Membership is free!

    What Are The Benefits For My Child?
