Yoga classes for women throughout life

YogaBellies® is a genre of hatha yoga which has evolved and grown over the past decade, around the yoga practice needs of women. Cheryl MacDonald, founder of YogaBellies®, created Luna and CorePlay, to offer yin and yang style yoga for women at every life stage.

These online classes are perfect for beginners, more advanced yogis and even the yoga curious.

Luna

Graceful, flowing and feminine yoga to balance hormonal fluctuations. Luna by YogaBellies is a unique, flowing style of yoga in tune with the Yin, Lunar and feminine elements. The focus of our Luna classes is to honour ourselves, be kind, and to take the time to relax and release. This practice offers calming, slower-paced, ‘internal’ poses that are appropriate for women throughout their monthly cycle. This graceful, flowing practice is gentle but deep like water.

Postnatal With Baby

NUTURE® by yogabellies

NURTURE® by YogaBellies was created to support mothers immediately post-nataly, which is traditionally a time when we were supported by ‘the village’ - a community of women around us, such as grandmothers, aunts, friends and neighbours. In today’s society, women tend to be left home alone with their baby while their partner goes out to work.

Without this community and support, we are suffering: More and more women have postnatal depression and suffer feelings of guilt, self-loathing and disappointment that they cannot fulfill their role like other mothers. The myth that women are supposed to raise a baby single-handed is one we wish to dispel. That’s what Nurture classes are all about.

YogaBellies® for Mum & Baby

At YogaBellies for Mum and Baby, we don’t “put baby in the corner” while you practice yoga. Our exclusive post natal classes incorporate baby yoga postures for your little one too so that they can practice with mum! As every aspect of your life will include baby now, we help you integrate baby into your yoga practice, while feeling the benefits of yoga for you too. You will also learn breath awareness and relaxation techniques, which help to increase energy levels and allow you to relax while with baby - yes it is possible!

YogaBellies® for little angels

These classes incorporate elements of yoga, massage, movement and music and continue the mum and baby bonding process while encouraging baby to express their new found creativity and freedom of expression.

These are generally taught as group classes and last around 45-60 minutes. The class includes yoga postures and dry massage strokes as well as stories, music, singing songs, rhymes and heuristic play. These elements together help baby’s vital development.

These classes encourage parents to just go with the flow instead of trying to keep baby still, allow them to roam the room and explore – the room becomes your yoga mat.
