This class is for new caregivers and their babies (up to 1 year old). It is a SPACE and TIME for YOU. We will strengthen and tone, stabilize, and celebrate the post-partum body while creating a playful space for movement with your baby.
Drawing on her training in Post-Partum Pilates (Debra Goodman, NYC) as well as her years of teaching mommy and baby Yoga (Asana Alphabet, NYC) Devika will offer a movement experience for mommy and baby that is nourishing, supportive, and fun. Mats and props provided.
Devika Wickremesinghe is a dancer person and Pilates instructor, originally from New York City. She graduated magna cum laude from Barnard College with a BA in Dance and Art History. Diving into dance performance and training after school led to a painful and repeated injury, and dancing through the pain became unsustainable. Through the discovery of the dynamic possibilities of Pilates, Devika became able to better understand her faulty movement patterns and properly care for her dancing body.Devika is certified through the Kane School of Core Integration, a program that integrates the Pilates method with sound bio-mechanical principles and focus on injury prevention. She has worked with students of all levels and has experience with osteoporosis and degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, chronic neck and back pain, students living with MS, and has certifications in Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates.
