Parent & Baby Yoga

Birthlight parent and baby yoga is suitable from 12 weeks to 18 months.

It is is recommended to attend baby massage first so you can enjoy its many benefits, as this can be practiced from birth.

There are many benefits that come from Yoga practice for both parent and baby.

Here are just some of the key benefits of coming on a course...

For parents:

  • Helps the body recover after birth so you can progress to other forms of exercise

  • Relieves stress on the body from birth, feeding and carrying

  • Encourages all bodily systems to work efficiently

  • Promotes mindfulness, relaxation and practices of the 8 limbs of yoga

  • Improves confidence in parenting and handling baby

  • Gives you the opportunity to build a parent support network

For baby/toddler:

  • Strengthens the bond with primary caregiver

  • Improves communication and language as we use songs and rhyme during movement

  • Encourages all bodily systems to work efficiently

  • It can help a baby's joints to function well, and encourages good posture and puts less pressure on the spine

  • A baby that practices yoga regularly can develop their skills in movement more easily and sometimes quicker than others

  • Baby yoga works on the principle that babies' hearts and minds are open and ready to embrace new experiences. Therefore babies can inadvertently be encouraged to practice the eight limbs of yoga.

Courses are £45: five one-and-a-half hour sessions and bottled water and fruit are included in each session. Most sessions run over five consecutive weeks but classes are term time only so sometimes have breaks for school holidays.

I ask that you arrange alternative childcare for siblings so that you can fully relax with your newborn.

Courses are held in Syston at the Brooke Studio. Early booking is essential with limited spaces available.
