We even give you a cotton tote bag to carry all your class belongings.
Our training is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Both massage and yoga offer significant undisputed and medically acknowledged benefits to both parent and child. They enhance bonding, physical, social and emotional development. Babies are more settled with improved sleep patterns. Parents more confident in their ability.

All instructors hold relevant education and teaching qualifications and also participate in CPD (Continual Professional Development) courses to expand their knowledge and experience. You will have the same the instructor throughout your course, barring any emergencies!
Benefits to Baby
Baby massage stimulates baby’s major systems including co-ordination, breathing, digestion & immune system. Aids and prevents the common symptoms and pain of colic, teething, constipation and wind. Baby yoga develops baby’s core muscles and aids in reaching physical developmental milestones such as rolling, sitting and standing. Aids co-ordination, balance, motor skills and muscle growth.
Benefits to Carer/Parent
Closer relationship with their child. Lowered blood pressure. Reduces stress and promotes relaxation. Improved overall general health and wellbeing. Feeling confident and empowered to aid their child in times of distress and discomfort. Doing yoga with your baby aids post natal healing, improves posture, tones your abdominal muscles and pelvic floor. Encourages confidence in handling baby.
Social and Interactive Benefits
Whilst being a time of immense joy, having a new baby is also a period of huge adjustment. It is highly beneficial to make friends with other new parents, to make time for social activity outside of your home, interacting with others and to spend quality time with your baby in addition to addressing their basic needs.
