No just bring yourself, if you have a yoga mat that can make the experience more comfortable but all you need is yourself
Every body is different and the return to exercise can vary depending on how your body changed during pregnancy, what your postpartum recovery has looked like, and your mental health postpartum. It’s important to wait until you have your doctor’s clearance to start exercising again. Once you get the green light, we encourage you not to rush back to your pre-pregnancy workout. Caring for a newborn is exhausting, and exercising when you’re fatigued raises your chance of injury. Take it slow and listen to your body. If you need to rest, rest.
We’ll show you how to do a self check at home or you can always go to a physical therapist virtually or in-person to have them check (or double check).
