Yoga for all
Tuesday. 14.30 till 15.45
Develop your practice and discover stillness within movement and movement within stillness. Alternating between flowing sequences and
static postures, students will be encouraged to work with awareness and modifications will be offered so that everyone can participate
fully. The structure of this class will have a natural ebb and flow like the movement of the sea and will culminate with a deep
Baby Massage and Infant nurture
Tuesday 16.00 till 17.00
The benefits of baby massage are well researched and evidence based. Baby massage aids our baby’s development, body awareness,
coordination and movement. It also helps to strengthen our baby’s immune system, improves their skin condition and circulation, helps
with digestive transit and balances the nervous system and respiration. Baby massage may also help to relieve many common baby ailments.
Massage is combined with an infant nurture course. Drawing upon my experience as a paediatic nurse we share knowledge to help one
another cope with a wide variety of baby ailments, examining both pharmalogical and complementary health care practices and general
advice to help to treat and care for a wide variety of childhood ailments.
Parent and Toddler Yoga
Thursdays. 9.30am to 10.15am plus social time
These classes are designed to get little ones (and parents) moving and exercising in a fun, inspiring and calm environment. We aim to
enjoy yoga through play using a variety of styles and props such as puppets, balls, bean bags, parachutes, stories and songs to engage
busy little minds.
Postnatal & Baby Yoga (newborn to crawling).
Thursdays. 11am till 11.45am plus social time
This class nurtures both mums and babies and combines baby yoga and postnatal yoga. In baby yoga we use multisensory play, loving touch
and yoga based exercises to support our baby’s development. Our babies experience relaxed, nurturing touch and closeness along with
opening, stimulating stretches and exercises.
Parent & Baby Yoga (for little ones on the move).
Fridays. 10.00 till 10.45 plus social time
We continue to use multisensory play, movement and song to engage our little ones but also incorporate group activities, more diverse
sequences and exploring, and social time in a safe environment. Many babies really benefit from the calmness that yoga practice promotes
and the classes are structured so that even the most energetic little one will leave feeling more relaxed in body and mind.
