BENEFITS OF BABY MASSAGE & BABY YOGA

Baby massage has a range of benefits that include 

Baby Massage classes are designed with new mums in mind. Mums learn the basics of baby massage routines which they can then develop and practice at home. Each week we concentrate on a different area of the body whilst re-capping over other elements so mums learn a variety of routines. This class is appropriate for all little ones from 6 weeks of age up to crawling.

  • Improves circulation and alleviates colic, digestive problems, sleep problems, skin rashes, congestion in the chest, constipation and diarrhoea

  • A wonderful way to soothe your baby and relieve emotional distress

  • Encourages further bonding with your baby and enables you to further understand their needs

  • Great chance to meet like-minded mums in a relaxing atmosphere 

There are so many benefits of doing Baby Yoga classes with babies.

From birth, babies respond positively to the stimulation of movement and touch together. In each baby yoga session, we use yoga moves which have been adapted especially for babies (mini twists, mini stretches, upper and lower body movements, diagonal movements) all wrapped up with playful moves and rhymes.

Baby yoga builds on your baby’s physical and mental developmental milestones and aid’s your baby’s brain development and your baby’s sense of co-ordination, balance and sensory and motor skills. Baby yoga also helps to attune to your baby’s needs and to calm or stimulate them as appropriate with a sense of security and wellbeing.

  • Relaxation for both parent and baby

  • Aids milestone development – head control, sitting, crawling, standing, early steps, first jumps and balances.

  • Aids physical stimulation – for every hour that babies spend strapped in cars seats or home seats, 5 minutes of Baby Yoga can provide stretching as a start to a healthy lifestyle.

  • Baby yoga can help settle babies and improve sleep patterns.

  • The movements can aid digestion and the holds can soothe colicky babies.
