Baby Yoga and Baby Massage are highly complementary activities. Babies are always ready to welcome new experiences and are eager to communicate. Their developing bodies are flexible and they can benefit from and enjoy the stimulating touch and movements from the Baby Yoga. We follow the Baby Yoga with a butterfly Baby Massage around the body. Then finish the class with a lovely relaxation and sensory session, offering some time out for both you and baby.
During your first class you will be given your complimentary cold pressed organic sunflower massage oil and a mat will be available to use during the session. Please bring some water for you and your baby to drink during the class.
You baby will be comforted by the natural and subtle smells of a familiar object like their towel or blanket so please bring a towel or blanket along to the class.
As we will be moving around and increasing our blood flow and heart rate, it is advised that you wear comfortable and removable layers. We suggest that baby wears light clothes or just a vest during the Yoga to avoid overheating and then clothes and vest will be removed for the Massage section.
Baby Yoga is suitable from 8 weeks (providing your baby was full term)
The classes are separated into beginners and advanced. You don’t have to have attended the Beginners Fusion Yoga to come to the Advanced Fusion Yoga, however the Advanced Yoga class required your baby to be able to hold their head without support and so we recommend about 18 weeks. As with all classes there is no upper age limit but as the moves require you to hold and lift your baby, it is more determined by your ability to hold and lift them.
