Baby Massage and Baby Yoga


baby yogaRelax, bond and learn about your baby

Our baby massage and yoga course is something very special, changing and responding as your little one grows and develops.

The unique 10-week course is suitable for babies from birth to crawling, and includes:

  • 5 weeks of baby massage, where you learn how to use nurturing touch and massage strokes to bond, relax and communicate with your baby. You will learn full body strokes to help relieve common conditions for babies such as wind, colic, constipation and teething pain.
  • 1 week of nurturing touch in the pool where you learn how to hold your baby, how to use massage strokes and touch, and about gentle movement and bonding in the water.
  • 4 weeks of baby yoga where you learn gentle movements, poses and exercises to strengthen and tone your and your baby’s muscles and core – the perfect postnatal workout!

Throughout the 10 weeks, you are given handouts to take home, a bottle of oil and continued support between classes.

Our baby massage and yoga classes aren’t just a wonderful bonding experience for you and your little one – they’re a fantastic way to meet and make friends with other new parents too.

They’re such lovely relaxed classes that we find our groups remain friends long after the course has ended.

Over the 10 weeks, we cover lots that’s all part of having a new baby! As well as sleeping, feeding and crying, we’ve touched on topics including colic/wind, teething, illness and eczema. And there’s always time for you to chat after each class over coffee and cake too. It’s so supportive, we’ve even had parents experiencing postnatal depression who’ve told us it’s been a real turning point.

The class environment is completely confidential so it’s a safe place to be honest and ask for support. It’s reassuring to hear that other parents feel the same as you, even if it’s their second or third child! The bonding we see in these classes is something really special – the start of new and lasting friendships as you all settle into parenthood together.

Classes are taught by our fully qualified instructor, Amanda. As well as being a mum herself, Amanda holds a Baby Massage qualification from the International Association of Infant Massage, The Hands on Babies Baby Yoga qualification (accredited by the Royal College of Midwives), the Swimming Teachers’ Association Baby and Pre-School Qualification and BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood Studies from The University of Warwick.
