Mummy & Baby Yoga is a fantastic way to support your baby through its early development. It is a fun and healthy way to bond with your baby whilst helping you both to relax. It helps your baby to stretch and discover his body and ability to move and you to tune in to his needs and responses. It’s beneficial for all babies because from birth they respond positively to stimulation through movement and the incredibly soothing sensation of touch. Also, our parent and baby yoga sessions are beginner friendly – you don’t need to practice yoga or know anything about it to get started with us!
