baby needs to feed or sleep during the Yoga session. Take time out with your baby
when you need to and join back in when you are ready.
Previous yoga experience is not necessary.

ADDITIONAL POINTS TO CONSIDER - while practising postnatal yoga
Do NOT compare yourself or your baby to any one else. Yoga is NOT competitive
Do NOT do any abdominal work till 6 weeks after a vaginal birth and eight weeks after
caesarean birth. Strengthen your pelvic floor muscle before starting abdominal work;
otherwise you could create too much pressure in the pelvic floor area, which could
lead to pain and complications
Do NOT practice deep twists until all the inner organs are held back in place in
Do NOT practice standing asanas until at least 3 weeks after birth
Do NOT practice a wide stance until you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles
Do NOT postpone relaxation, because of tasks that need to be done
