STUCK AT HOME AND/OR WANT TO WORKOUT ON A NAP?
I HEAR YOU!
Here is a collection of online classes, free and pay per view, that I found useful on my mat leave and/or have been recommended to me by fellow Dance Mamas.
This was created pre-March 2020 as a good solution for working out at home. Hopefully useful in these unprecedented times.
Whilst dedicated to the #dancemama community, I have added some links to colleagues who are now providing online sessions, free and pay per view in the first section. All other content is split per parenthood stage and style as before.
Disclaimer: Remember to consult with your medical team before undertaking any exercise programme, and particularly new mums should not be undertaking any exercise before passing their 6-week check with their GP. Whilst we want you to be the best that you can be, Dance Mama does not accept any responsibility for your health and wellbeing. Your body, your responsibility.
A POSITIVE RESPONSE TO MARCH 2020
Over the past week, colleagues from around the world are now streaming sessions from home to keep us all moving through these times.
In the below section not all of them will be pre or post-natal friendly - you MUST check each individual session title first before embarking on following it so it his appropriate to your level.
Laura is a Mum of 2 and soloist at Birmingham Royal Ballet. She has responded by upload videos for families to download and also I will offer 1-2-1 coaching. This can be for an adult or child, whatever the needs of the individual.
The pre-recorded videos will include;
Mum and Me Ballet Classes
Pre-schoolers Ballet Classes
Improvers Ballet Classes
Advanced Ballet Classes
Adult Ballet Classes
Hopefully there will be something for everyone. (Laura also stars in the short film Balance, listed below in Documentary)
'Dance Like a Mother CIC is the Award Winning Mum & Baby class, where you get to have a dance to some great music, get active and have fun, whilst also spending some quality bonding time with your baby, holding them close in soft structured carriers (Ssshhh! they often fall asleep!)'
