-Welcome To Our First Steps-

Welcome to Our First Steps, the home of parent and baby classes for mummy and baby yoga, yoga classes for children, baby swimming, yoga classes for pregnant women, baby sensory and baby massage in Oldham and Ashton. We’ve got lots of activities, workshops and information for mums, mums-to-be and their little bundles of joy. We help create positive change by creating an environment where everyone can feel loved, nurtured and cared for. And, we support the health and wellbeing of babies, children and their parents by helping ensure a restful night’s sleep, reduce stress and create feelings of bonding and security. We love meeting new people, especially new little humans, and we help them be all they can be from the beginning.

-Your Child Grows-

Our First Steps exists to help your child develop from the earliest time possible by providing baby sensory, yoga, massage, fitness and activities for pregnant women and young children. Founded by our instructor Becky, Our First Steps was set up to help mums, their babies, children and mums-to-be stay fit, bond and relax. We have years of experience working with babies, mums-to-be and children in swimming, health and fitness activities. Spotting the need for some specialised activities for children and new mothers, we set out on a mission to create a space for learning, fitness, health and sensory development second-to-none.

-For Mummies, Babies and Kids-

When parents are happy and supported, their babies and children get better care. We offer a holistic approach to bonding, health and fitness that helps parents, babies and children exercise, bond, improve their fitness and relax. Our activities are yoga based and they are safe for pregnant women even late into their pregnancy. Our children’s yoga classes are specially designed for children 12 years and under. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, our activities are never too strenuous for their participants. The activities we offer at Our First Steps are uniquely able to address the health and fitness needs of people who otherwise might find it hard to stay fit and healthy. At the same time, we help lay the foundations of a healthy, happy, and productive life by encouraging good habits and improving understanding of child, baby and mother mental health and relaxation.

-Swimming for Babies, Carers and Mums-To-Be-

Our First Steps is unique in being able to offer specialised swimming classes for babies, and those who care for them, to swim together. We also offer fantastic swimming classes for pregnant women that provide an environment for safe, relaxing, yoga informed exercise; our Birthlight Aquanatal Yoga Classes. Our instructors are all fully trained and certified to teach swimming and are absolutely knowledgeable about the special needs of babies, carers and mums-to-be in a swimming environment. We offer these classes from two locations, in Oldham and in Ashton, with a lot of time slots available.

Wading through the water wobbles
