Baby yoga incorporates gentle stretching and movements with song. It helps build coordination and balance whilst assisting babies’ physical, emotional and social development. It can also be useful in aiding digestive or sleeping difficulty. The yoga for the parents focuses on strengthening core muscles, improving posture and balance, relieving the common postnatal aches and pains, and of course enjoying a deep relaxation with our babies at the end of each class. For immobile babies from 10 weeks old. Classes run on Thursdays at 10am - 11.30am & Fridays, 11am - 12.30pm in half-termly blocks. These classes are extremely popular so book early.
Parent & Baby Wrigglers Yoga
Babies who are crawling up to 2 years old will enjoy our Wrigglers classes. These are designed for mobile babies with more playful and dynamic movement and massage, songs and practices to learn about their bodies. Babies are free to move around and explore the space as they wish, building social skills and confidence within the group at their own pace. At this stage parent yoga becomes more dynamic as well, with opportunities to build strength, balance, patience and relaxation skills as you move towards the toddler years. Classes run on Wednesdays at 10am - 11am, in half-termly blocks.
