5 week Baby Yoga and Baby Massage Combined Course

What to Expect & What's Included

This course runs for 5 weeks and each class is 1 hour 15 minutes long, providing time for Baby Yoga, Baby Massage as well as refreshments and time for the Mama's to chat at the end of each session.

Our Baby Yoga and Baby Massage Combined Course is suitable from 12 weeks to pre-crawling.

I recommend you begin with our Baby Massage Course which is suitable for babies around 8 weeks to pre-crawling, then progressing onto our Baby Yoga and Baby Massage Combined Course which is suitable from 12 weeks to pre-crawling, followed by Baby Yoga with Developmental Play for babies who are 16 weeks plus and are able to support themselves a little more. 

The Baby Yoga element of the course combines soft stretches inspired by traditional yoga poses to help support the development of babies and to aid relaxation and bonding. We also include Baby Massage each week which compliments the focus of Baby Yoga for each session. For example during the first week the Yoga focus is on mobilizing the hips which involves lots of Yoga movements for the legs, supported by Baby Massage for the legs.

Plus, s part of this course, a Tummy Time Workshop is included each week to give you different techniques for tummy time, the benefits, different activities and how to help your little one if they aren't keen on being on their front. 

Baby Yoga is more stimulating and interactive than Baby Massage by including more movement such as swings and dips as well as stretches and lots of singing. This even provides some light exercise for you as well because you will be moving your baby into the yoga poses, swings and dips for example. It's really good fun for both of you and a great way to bond and interact with each other too.

The Benefits of Baby Yoga

Baby Yoga shares similar benefits to Baby Massage such as helping with the bonding process, remedial benefits and it can aid with your baby’s development. In addition, the release of feel good endorphins in both parent and baby’s body can help to promote relaxation and wellbeing. 

Baby Yoga can also help strengthen your baby’s muscles, flexibility, rhythm, develop coordination and is stimulating for your baby’s senses. 

We all know the 5 senses; touch, smell, taste, sound and sight. But let's not forget the sense of balance and movement (vestibular system) and the sense of body position (proprioceptive system). Baby Yoga stimulates all of these senses through massage, movement, tummy time, active play for babies in the form of swings and dips, gentle stretches and songs. 

When you move your baby’s body into various yoga poses, you help to stimulate the circulatory system and aid the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body.

As with Baby Massage, Baby Yoga can help to settle babies and improve their sleep patterns. It can also enhance communication between parent and baby by providing special time together. Babies enjoy the close physical contact with parents and are soothed by many of the poses.

The Benefits of Developmental Play

Baby Yoga is developmental play in action. Baby Yoga offers a way for parents to include development play in their daily lives with their baby. 

Play is an important part of a child’s early development. Playing helps baby’s brains to develop and for their language and communication skills to mature.

Simple games of peek-a-boo, shaking a rattle, fun movements, swings and dips, poses and singing are all included in our Baby Yoga and Massage, Movement and Music classes. Each of these activities are used to teach your baby about communication, develop their motor skills and help with problem-solving.
