Yoga for Baby is relaxing and fun, combining traditional yoga positions with exciting dynamic movements that benefit your baby’s mental and physical development.

My Yoga for Baby course is certified by To Baby and Beyond, who are in turn accredited by the prestigious Royal College of Midwives. The classes combine traditional yoga techniques with rhythmic movements for your little one.

Yoga gives your baby the chance to explore movement in many dimensions within a completely safe environment. Alongside developmental yoga-based poses, each class also includes singing, sensory activities, and interactive fun for your baby, alongside calm breathing techniques and relaxations for you too.

Book a Course

Anyone can join our baby yoga sessions as no previous experience is necessary. However both mother and baby should have had their 6-8 week GP check-up before taking part in this exercise, and longer for C section recovery. It’s also advisable that mothers do not consider yoga in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy unless previously practicing.

My course is most suitable for babies aged from around 10 weeks right up to crawling/mobile. If your baby is under 10 weeks, or is not confidently holding their head, you may wish to consider joining my baby massage classes in Hyde.
