Postnatal - Yoga For Upper Back

About this course

Enjoy releasing tension through the upper back, shoulders and neck. Correct that 'mum hunch' and feel relax and free.

After giving birth, many women experience tension in the upper back due to a combination of factors. During pregnancy, the body undergoes significant changes, including weight gain, postural adjustments, and hormonal fluctuations. These changes can strain the muscles of the upper back, especially as the body adjusts to caring for a newborn, which often involves prolonged periods of holding, feeding, and bending forward. Additionally, stress and lack of sleep commonly experienced postpartum can exacerbate muscle tension in the upper back.

Yoga offers several benefits for relieving tension in the upper back postpartum. Gentle yoga poses can help stretch and strengthen the muscles of the upper back, shoulders, and neck, releasing tension and improving flexibility.

Mindful breathing techniques practiced in yoga can also reduce stress and promote relaxation, aiding in tension relief. Moreover, yoga provides an opportunity for self-care and mindfulness, allowing new mothers to nurture their physical and mental well-being amidst the demands of motherhood.
