I am very excited to share with you my newest venture..PARENT AND BABY YOGA with MASSAGE!
I am running 4 week courses in Littleborough on Thursdays and Ripponden on Mondays, starting January 2017.
Ripponden – Stones Church – MONDAY 23rd Jan, 30th Jan, 6th Feb, 13th Feb
Littleborough – Boxing Club – THURSDAY 26th Jan, 2nd Feb, 9th Feb, 16th Feb
They will be lovely, small, informal, supportive groups of mums/dads/caregivers and their beautiful Tiny Sunbeams.
Our Tiny Sunbeams (babies!) will be the focus of the hour long sessions, with lots of singing, smiling and fun. Yoga and massage helps baby’s physical, mental and emotional development, while massage helps to ease common problems like colic, constipation, wind and teething symptoms. There will be a focus on the grown ups to help release stress and lessen anxiety with gentle yoga and breathing practice, while mums will benefit from pelvic floor and abdominal strengthening.
I will be incorporating my qualifications from Womb Yoga Teacher Training Course (focuses on menstrual health, in/fertility, pre-natal, post-natal, menopause) and my Pre-Post Natal Yoga Diploma, alongside baby yoga and baby massage.
Being a parent/caregiver is wonderful and awesome, but can be exhausting and depleting. These courses will give you space to just be, to find catch your breath, to relax, rebalance and re-energise. Alongside the wonderful bonding and closeness with your Tiny Sunbeam.
Our Tiny Sunbeams are warmly welcomed to be babies, and communicate their needs accordingly, feeding, changing, soothing, taking care of their needs always comes first.
I love love love babies! It compliments my existing adult yoga experience and qualifications to hold space where parents can practice some nurturing yoga as well as stimulating yoga for the babies, in a supportive, safe environment. My intention is to create a space for babies and mum/parent/caregiver, where babies are perfectly welcomed to be babies -crying/bodily fluids/crawling and exploring, and mum/parent/caregiver can rebalance, re-energise and relax.
I completed my Baby Yoga and Baby Massage training with Janine Hurley and Justine Baines, with Creative Calm and YogaCampus.
Courses are to be pre-booked and run term time. There will be a handout to help develop a home practice. There will be opportunity at Littleborough to stop for a brew and a biscuit before rushing off.
