--Equipment needed: yoga mat, towel or blanket (a place to put baby if they want a bit of love during class)
$10 via cash or Venmo

FAQ's:

***What can I expect during the movement portion?
All body resistance work! So, no need for weights or added props!  Full body focus: arms, back, legs, glutes and a little bit of core.  Core work will be safe for all stages of postpartum
***Speed of class: Nothing too crazy, I promise! While we will be pumping some good jams, it’s important for us to be able to intentionally connect to the movements and what parts of the body we’re working.
***What if my baby is fussy or needs to be fed?
Then take care of baby! We’ll all be in the same boat (including myself…Mr. Jude will be there, too!). Do what you can for movement because anything is better than nothing. And it’ll just feel good to be out and about with other Mama’s, so if you need to stop and tend to baby, then do just that!
***What if it rains?
I’ll be watching the weather and will alert you if we need to reschedule due to rain.
***Will there be shade?
We’ll try our best to secure the shaded area at the park for us to hang in, however, I’d suggest bringing a light muslin blanket or some other sun shade for the stroller/baby container ☺

TUESDAY & THURSDAY'S, 11am until Thanksgiving - a note from Alison - My husband and I welcomed baby Jude into our world this past June (2021) and it feels like it has been both ... morea lifetime and a blink of the eye. This new Mama chapter has been a wild ride...trying to navigate all things baby, body, relationships, work, etc. While it certainly "takes a village," it is often very isolating.

As I've tried to navigate my own journey back into movement, I’ve felt a natural urge to help other Mama's get their groove back. This is hard stuff and I'm right there with ya! Postpartum movement is a difficult road to travel. Often, new Mom's are left feeling uncomfortable, full of self-doubt and unsure of what is “safe” for their bodies. You're not alone and I'm here to help. Postpartum movement is SO important and can help foster better sleep habits, more energy throughout the day, clearer focus and less stress. Separate from movement, I also just love the connection we immediately have as fellow Mama’s…it’s an instant bond over something we have so very much in common.

A little bit about my fitness journey...I became a lover of barre-style fitness back in 2014 which led me to finding a new passion and new career. In four short years, I went from a Barre student to a Barre Instructor (while working full time in Corporate Marketing), ultimately, to leaving my stable career and opening up my dream studio, Haven Fitness, in 2018. I hold certifications for Group Fitness and Pre-Post Natal Fitness through ACE.

With years of fitness experience, as well as my own Mothering journey, I hope you can join us as we MINGLE and MOVE together.

xoxo,
Alison
