Baby Yoga is based on traditional yoga movements which have been used to improve health and wellbeing. Incorporating breathing, stretching and relaxation as used in yoga practice. As with Baby Massage, Baby Yoga can help to settle babies and improve their sleep patterns, reducing crying and emotional distress.
Each week we incorporate Baby Massage techniques along with baby Yoga movements, so that you can benefit from both Baby Massage and Baby Yoga. We have extended this class to 55 minutes. The first 30 minutes will be floor based massage strokes and baby yoga movements and songs. The final 25 minutes will be time for baby to explore the lovely sensory toys while mum/dad have a well deserved cuppa and biscuits and a chance to have a chat with the other parents.
If you are a new mummy and would like to come along and join a friendly, welcoming, supportive community, with other new mummies, then do come along and join us. Being a new mum can bring up so many emotions, and sometimes it can feel a little scary and overwhelming. This is probably the biggest change to have happened in your lifetime. Struggling with lack of sleep, juggling life with a newborn, you need the support of others in those early days. This is a safe, friendly, non judgemental space. Come along just as you are and feel welcomed, chat to other new mums and share your experiences in the group. if your feeling lonely, this is the space to come and feel connected, build friendships and be part of our community. we finish each session with a guided meditation, so both you and your baby feel relaxed.

Tummy Time is important for your baby’s development as it helps to strengthen the core muscles needed for sitting, rolling, and crawling.
