These beautiful baby massage classes provide a safe haven for you & your baby to spend quality time with one another. Nurturing touch is one of the primary ways to communicate with your baby, to provide them with comfort, security & relief from issues such as colic, distress & teething pain. This well researched & balanced programme covers massage techniques incorporating longstanding traditions from Indian & Swedish massage, as well as the principles of yoga & reflexology. Each week offers a new area of massage with full instructions & details to take home to share with your baby. There is ample opportunity to explore these sequences week to week, building into a wonderful lifetime language of touch to share with your family.
The IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) massage sequences are suitable for babies form birth to one year, but may be used for children, including those with additional needs up to the age of seven years (& hopefully beyond).
Weekly group sessions run throughout the year. You will be invited to join one group. You may be able to join another if you miss a single class from your own, space allowing. One-to-one sessions can also be booked (price on application), or small groups from your own home. Please get in touch with any queries.

Since my first yoga class in 1997, I found that yoga has become a wonderful and fulfilling part of my life. I began teaching in 2003, after being encouraged to study further by my own teachers. I gained a diploma to teach through the British Wheel of Yoga. Since then, my focus has been on teaching yoga for pregnancy and childbirth, gaining a BWY pregnancy module in 2006. I followed this with a birthlight diploma to teach baby yoga in 2007. I have also supported my BWY ante-natal training with a Childbirth Preparation certificate from birthlight.
Throughout the years, my own practice has been influenced by several experienced teachers in diverse schools of yoga, such as hatha, Iyengar & Ashtanga, lending me a wide perspective of yoga and its benefits. My most recent explorations have been in Scaravelli-influenced yoga, working both with teachers who practiced with Vanda Scaravelli herself, and their students who teach others. In so doing, I met with Bill Wood & undertook another teacher diploma, becoming qualified with the AIYP in 2011. I meet regularly with renown teachers, such as Wendy Teasdill, Louise Simmons & Catherine Annis. I have also been interested in therapeutical yoga, working with programmes such as " Yoga for Healthy Backs "
