Baby Yoga is a rolling class bookable in 4 weekly blocks. Each week we look at moves and stretches to mobilise baby's hips, arms, shoulders, etc. We also have lots of fun carrying out lifts, dips and swings to fun nursery rhymes. We also spend a little time focusing on relaxation for parents through different breathing practices and some gentle yoga inspired stretches. Prices range from £20-£25 per course depending on location.
Baby yoga is suitable for babies aged 8 weeks to 1 year. For mums who have had a caesarean section please wait until 12 weeks post birth before beginning the course.
We provide you with mats and cushions for your comfort. All you have to do is bring a towel/blanket for the mat to rest baby on.
During the baby yoga classes babies experience gentle stretches which help tone the muscles and improve co-ordination. Lots of tummy time gives babies the opportinity to strengthen their neck muscles and encourage them to progress their gross motor skills, such as crawling.
Swings, dips and movement help babies develop their balance as well as plenty of opportunity for smiles and squeals of delight.
There are lots of songs, nursery rhymes and music which accompany the moves, assisting with speech and language development.
Baby yoga can also provide relief for colicky babies as the tummy gets lots of massage with the stretches, making lots of space for wind and trapped gas bubbles to pass.
It's not all about baby though, as parents also have the opportunity to do some gentle stretching alongside their babies and all sessions end with relaxtion.
