Baby Massage and Yoga with Ruth


Baby Yoga

Our Baby Yoga classes are a relaxing yet playful session where you interact with your baby through joyful Yoga movement. Based on Hatha Yoga, the focus is mainly on you assisting your baby with the moves, but there are also some simple Yoga moves to stretch and relax you too!

Taught over 6 week blocks, each 45 minute class will have a different sequence of moves to work through.

We have two Baby Yoga classes on offer: Younger Baby Yoga Class is suitable from the first Dr sign off (usually around 10 weeks) through to roughly 6 months; Older Baby Yoga Class is from roughly 5 or 6 months through to toddling.

The sessions are entirely baby led with no pressure to continue if babies want to stop, need a feed or a nappy change in the middle of class! It doesn't matter if you've never tried Yoga before as Ruth will lead the practice and demonstrate all moves for you to copy with your baby. These playful, nurturing sessions have many benefits:

  • improve balance, co-ordination, motor skills and muscle development;
  • improve relaxation and encourage longer sleep duration for baby;
  • develop spatial awareness and physical confidence;
  • stimulate all of baby's major systems such as coordination, respiration, digestion, learning ability and language development;
  • help to relieve effects of colic and wind;
  • build trust and social interaction

Please note for safety purposes, babies need to be one-on-one with their adult. However, these classes are not just for Mums - Dads, Grandparents, close friends (anyone who is a trusted carer of the baby) is welcome to enjoy this nurturing one-on-one time with baby in class.

Time:

  • Runs in 6 week blocks
  • Upcoming blocks begin Tuesday 17th August, Thursday 9th September and Tuesday 28th September.
  • 11.00 - 11.45 Younger Baby Yoga
  • 14.00 - 14.45 Older Baby Yoga

Baby Massage

Baby massage is a gentle, relaxing session which allows you to extend skin on skin time with your baby. This is the perfect class to really bond and focus on the two of you.

Oil will be provided at the studio and each week is progressive so that by the end of the course you will be able to complete a full body massage.

There are multiple benefits to participating in Baby Massage! This is one of the few classes available from birth which makes it an amazing opportunity to help build a secure attachment bond with your baby and benefits include:

  • relieves wind;
  • relieves constipation;
  • relieves colic;
  • eases teething;
  • stimulates muscle tone and development;
  • improves body and spatial awareness;
  • assists overall development of co-ordination, respiration, digestion;
  • aids learning ability and language development.

As well as all the stimulation and development for babies, the classes are overall very relaxing. Massage is a very loving, nurturing practice to participate in and both parent/carer and baby should come away feeling very relaxed. Baby massage produces the love hormone, Oxytocin. This helps strengthen the bond between parent/carer and baby, reduces stress and promotes longer and deeper sleep patterns.

Above all else, baby massage classes are designed to be fun and engaging and we encourage all adults in the class to talk to their baby and have fun together! There is also a wider social benefit to the classes, as these are small, friendly group sessions allowing you to meet likeminded, local people!

Please note for safety purposes, babies need to be one-on-one with their adult. However, these classes are not just for Mums - Dads, Grandparents, close friends (anyone who is a trusted carer of the baby) is welcome to enjoy this loving one-on-one time with baby in class.

  • Upcoming blocks begin Tuesday 17th August, Thursday 9th September and Tuesday 28th September
