Baby yoga is a yoga based practice between parent/carer and baby. It perfectly complements baby massage and expands the benefits of touch with those of movement and relaxation.
You don't need any previous yoga experience, this is a great course to get back in touch with your body, gain confidence in handling your baby, learn loads of songs & have fun – it's just pure, simple, joyous interaction and they love socialising with other babies (please wear comfortable clothes).
You will also learn some effective post natal exercises to help you heal and strengthen your body after the birth of your baby (This can help you with pelvic floor strength, back pain, hormonal changes, balance, split abdominal muscles, pelvic girdle pain, swollen ankles, postural problems).
Classes are ongoing and progressive with your baby's development.

‘I really enjoyed the baby yoga classes that we came to and we now do lots of bits from the class at home. It wasn't at all what I expected, much broader and more fun. I think it showed me that I can be one of the best toys for Thomas to play with given a bit of imagination! The exercises have made a difference but not in the way I thought. The leg and arm stretches and moves to encourage rolling haven't got Thomas rolling (he only likes to roll in his cot when he thinks no-one is looking!) but have helped his tummy and he seems to enjoy them. The exercises for me when standing over Thomas and stretching and being on all fours above him never fail to make him smile – even when he is crying – it's amazing how it always works, so I use this a lot for him rather than me!
I also hold Thomas up so that he can try standing on his legs in the way you showed us which also amuses him as he can look at the same things from a different perspective. He's got a lot stronger at that really quickly.
Thomas gets bored quickly so being given lots of different ideas to try is great and I really value having things to do with him other than laying or sitting him in front of toys.
Thomas loved the babyoke and being held that way too. I think that was great because there aren't many situations where you can give the babies a chance to all look at each other like that and have fun, even if you do socialise with other mums and babies.
Also one week you brought scarves to play with which I copied and we now play a game with one of my scarves where we hide!'
