LEWISTON — HealthSteps, part of the prevention and wellness services offered through St. Mary’s Health System, will offer a Mommy and Me Postnatal Yoga class.

The class is designed for mothers and their infant children, aged eight-weeks to almost walking. It will offer moms a way to reconnect with and strengthen the body after it has healed from delivery, and will offer an opportunity for moms to bond, breathe and stretch with their little ones.

The workshop will also visit gentle hands-on yoga and massage for babies, as well as postures to help mom and baby continue the bonding process. Cost is $50 and preregistration is required. Participants should bring a yoga mat, blanket and a small bottle of organic essential oil such as grape seed, apricot or almond oil, food grade for the baby massage portion.
