Movement is an essential part of a baby’s overall development, both mentally and physically. Varied movement helps to create vital brain connections, as well as strengthening muscles and joints. It has been proven that, for healthy development, babies need to experience the world in many different dimensions – forwards, backwards, upwards and downwards to enable postural reflexes to take over from the primitive reflexes they are born with. Baby Yoga provides this through gentle movements and postures specifically adapted for babies from traditional yoga postures.
Our Baby Yoga courses are perfect for complete beginners and are relaxing and rejuvenating for both baby and parent as well offering a fantastic opportunity for you to exercise together. Each week includes a new breathing and stretching exercises for parents, along with gentle movements and yoga postures for each area of baby’s body. Baby Yoga offers the opportunity for positive activity / play time for parents and their babies. As with all of our classes,they are baby-led, meaning that the needs of your baby always come first, so no pressure is placed on baby or child and we always give babies the opportunity to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to Baby Yoga and respect their non-verbal cues.
Our Baby Yoga courses provide a natural progression from our Baby Massage courses and although it is recommended that you attend a Baby Massage course prior to a Baby Yoga course, it is not essential.
Baby Massage is a gentle, calm and relaxing course which focuses on the baby, teaching parents to become more attune to their baby’s non-verbal communication and helping to strengthen the trust bond and mutual understanding between the two. Massage is a perfect introduction to positive loving touch and creates a wonderful foundation for babies and parents to progress onto the more stimulating and active Baby Yoga course.
Our small, relaxed group courses are held in comfortable baby-friendly venues in Leicestershire. The 5 week course costs £45 and includes all the equipment you will need, free parking as well as refreshments and time for a chat each week.
