Babies at Play; Mamas in Flow

Updated: Aug 14, 2018

As all new mamas know carving out time for yourself without a baby attached to you is near to impossible. And for the first few months, you cherish this attachment (well most of the time...we're mamas, not saints). However once the #4thtrimester is complete a shift happens and you realise how an hour to yourself could go a really long way! At least this is how I felt.


During my #postnatal journey, I have found that freely flowing without co-sharing my yoga mat provided me the space I needed to connect back to me, and then return to #motherhood with a full cup. For me these baby-free flows happened during nap-time, as sorting child care to attend a yoga class was just always to "hard basket", and I know I am not the only mama with this predicament.


The Updog Yoga studio is all about making it easy for new mamas to practice yoga. If ever there was a time in our lives we needed to prioritise connecting to our breath, body and mind...its during those first two years of being a mama (can I get an amen?!).

With the goal of breaking down barriers for mamas to practice yoga at the forefront of our studio's mission...offering babysitting just seemed like a no brainer!

Without further ado, mamas of Brisbane please let me introduce you to our onsite babysitter: Philippa! Philippa is onsite every Monday and Friday morning during the Mamas Flow vinyasa classes, looking after the babies while the mamas flow freely.


I am lucky enough to call Philippa my friend. We met through yoga a few year's back and she has since become Finn’s babysitter while she studies full-time.

Philippa is currently studying a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) with special interest in female health, fertility, pregnancy and children. She has over 3 years of experience in babysitting, from infants to toddlers, and is passionate about providing a fun and safe environment for children to play and grow. Philippa is certified in First-Aid, CPR and has her Queensland Blue Card. She is a dedicated yogi and believes that it’s is never to early or late to enjoy the wonderful benefits of yoga in optimising health for your body and mind.

Mamas Flow is on every Monday at 8:30am and Friday's at 8:30am and 10:30am. It's an active vinyasa class, catered to mamas in their first two years. Learn more about Mamas Flow.


Babysitting is only $10/child for the hour and your first yoga class in the #updogpostnatalyoga studio is free! #makingmumslifeeasier #seeyouonthemat #yogaformum #newmama
