FAQ’s

Q)  How soon can I start participating in Stroller Yoga after giving birth?

  • A)  It is always best to get your doctor’s approval.  However, this is from the Mayo Clinic website: In the past, health care providers often instructed women to wait at least six weeks after giving birth to begin exercising. But the waiting game may be over. If you exercised during pregnancy and had an uncomplicated delivery, it’s generally safe to begin exercising within days of delivery — or as soon as you feel ready. If you had a C-section, extensive repair or a complicated birth, talk to your health care provider about when to start an exercise program.

Q)  I don’t like to run or jog, so I won’t be able to keep up during the stroller part.

  • A)  You are welcome to walk during the stroller portion of the class.  The class will all leave on the trail together and return after 30 minutes.  This allows different levels to walk, jog or run at their own pace for the middle cardio portion of this workout.  The instructor will check in with all the students during the walk/run portion of the class, so that we all get back to the mat together.

Q)  I don’t have a child and stroller but I would like to join in on the yoga and running.  May I still take the class?

  • Of course, stroller yoga is a great workout regardless of whether you have a stroller.  If you would like more resistance training, you might find it beneficial to bring ankle and or wrist weights as you do the work-out.
