Baby Yoga is loads of fun for both mums and babies and offers a wide variety of benefits. Claire has trained extensively with Birthlight, International Association of Infant Massage & the British Wheel of Yoga in Postnatal Yoga, Baby Massage & Baby Yoga to ensure that her classes bring you a complete view of how you and your baby can enjoy positive postnatal experiences together. In class we explore simple massage & yoga inspired movements with a view to assisting baby's physical and cognitive development and helping to alleviate some of the more common discomforts, such as colic, digestive issues, problems sleeping etc. The nurturing, tactile nature of the practices also enhances the mutual bond between mother and baby and help to encourage relaxed interaction. Mummies also benefit from the simple postnatal recovery practices that are integrated into each class. Classes are relaxed & informal, allowing you to feed, change, comfort or soothe your baby to sleep whenever necessary.
