What to expect from our Baby Yoga course.
Our Baby Yoga courses provide you and your baby with a complete nurture experience where you can relax, connect with your baby and build your community by meeting and socialising with other new mums.
Classes are completely baby led with absolutely no pressure on you or your baby. If your baby needs to feed, sleep or just wants a cuddle that is ok, we will be led by them and i will ensure that you are confident with the strokes so that you can massage your baby at home at a time that works for you. Your partner is more than welcome to join the course as it is a bonding experience and valuable tool for the whole family.
The baby yoga course runs for four weeks. Throughout the course you will learn theory knowledge on various topics including development, physiology and anatomy and all of the wonderful benefits of yoga.
Each week we will begin the session with some dry massage for the babies to relax them and link with the benefits of massage and skin to skin contact. This includes lots of lovely songs with each body part we cover. Singing during classes helps develop baby’s sense of rhythm and promotes language development and communication between parent and baby.
Throughout the four week course we will gradually learn lots of safe and gentle stretches and movements to assists babies development at a pace that works for each individual baby.
We also include lots of fun movement activities for you and baby, practice safe floor stretches with your baby and practice swings and dips which the babies love! We have lots of adaptations to ensure that mum is comfortable and safe throughout these.
The class finishes with some breathing and relaxation techniques for the mums. We understand that babies have needs and we do not expect them to be quiet at this time so please do not worry.
The classes are very relaxed so if there are any parts of the course that you do not want to take part in that is ok! I want you to feel relaxed and comfortable.
