Baby Massage and Baby Yoga Courses

"Thank you Paula for a wonderful experience with my baby. Your massage class really helped me to feel more confident with Fraser and he really enjoyed it - especially the back massage! I would highly recommend your class."

Emma Hudson

Baby Massage

Baby Massage has been practiced by Mothers in Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America for centuries.  The skills are passed down through the generations.  The practice of Baby Massage started to be practiced in the Western countries in the 1970’s by a lady call Vimala McClure who founded the Association of Infant Massage.

Baby Massage is something that parents and carers do with their babies, not to their babies.  It is a way of expressing love, caring, and respect through positive touch.  Baby Massage has many development benefits for babies, as well as alleviating pain and discomfort.  You will learn to communicate and learn your baby’s cues through touch.

Babies can be massaged from birth but in a group environment I suggest no younger than 4 weeks and no older than 6/7 months (crawling).

Baby Yoga

Baby Yoga is a nice follow on from the Baby Massage. Yoga is well known for its ability to strengthen, increase flexibility and tone muscles.  As your baby develops this helps them reach their full potential, aids co-ordination and brain development with movements and exercises that cross the midline of the body. 

The Yoga course includes movement, singing, calming techniques, interactive fun and relaxation for both parent/carers and babies.  These are skills you can carry with you, for the rest of your lives.

No experience of yoga is necessary but you and your baby just need to have had the 6-8 week check-up before starting. The maximum age for the course is around 9 months/walking.
