What is covered on the baby yoga course?
Baby yoga is for babies aged 12 weeks and over and includes for both parents and babies all the components of classic yoga. The yoga is fully integrated for both mother and baby. All movements are adapted according to each child and parent. The course is great for encouraging babies gross and fine motor skills by developing and strengthening the muscles and keeping babies flexible. It also helps babies with emotional development allowing parents time to interact, teach (through songs and rhymes) and bond with their babies. Both babies and parents have time for movement and relaxation. Parents get time to stretch, strengthen (with particular emphasis on the pelvic floor and stomach) and relax.
A typical class will include:-
- Time for the babies on the yoga balls
- Post natal breathing exercises and post natal realignment
- Stretches for the parents
- Movements for the babies lying on the floor, sitting up and with parents standing. Songs are included.
- Parents stretching and strengthening exercises with a particular focus strengthening the pelvic floor and tummy and removing any tensions in the body
- Learning correct postures to help you in day to day life
- Joint relaxation of the body and mind.
- Lots of sensory aids
- Time for refreshments, socialising and home made cakes
This is a course you can keep coming back to

This is the same but moves are adapted to the older child with the use of balls, parachutes and scarves. The pace is faster. There continues to be post natal moves and relaxation for parents.
No prior knowledge of yoga is required and each movement is at the pace of each individual parent and baby.
