Baby Yoga

Connect with your baby through movement and touch

Baby Massage and Yoga complement each other. The energetic and stimulating Yoga exercises are a great follow-on from the massage and provide a number of benefits for babies and parents. Baby Yoga builds on Baby’s physical and mental development and aids brain development, a sense of co-ordination, balance and sensory and motor skills.

We start our sessions with some gentle postnatal stretches for parents which are followed by a warm up for babies. We then practice Baby Yoga, which combines gentle stretches with nursery rhymes so it is lots of fun for babies and their parents. We finish each class with refreshments and there is plenty of time to make new friends.

The Baby Yoga course lasts 5 weeks and will help develop your baby's neural development, sensory motor skills, balance and co-ordination. Baby Yoga is suitable from 10 weeks onwards.
