A yoga class for new mums is being launched in Otley – and babies are welcome too.

Yoga For You And Baby Comes Too has been specifically designed for postnatal women, who are also invited to bring their children along.

Otley mum Angie Georgeson, who runs classes under the name of Yogamum, said: “I know from my own experience that early motherhood can sap our energy, play havoc with our posture and make us pine for a full night’s sleep.

“Yoga helps counter all of this, but finding time to practice without your baby can seem to be all but impossible. In this new class, we will practice yoga for mums. However, the babies and older siblings are not only welcome but are integrated into the class.”

The new class started on the November 5 and takes place every Tuesday from 1pm to 2pm at Otley Health and Martial Arts Centre in Orchard Gate, Otley.

The space is fully matted out and safe for toddling or crawling children.
