My Mummy & Baby Yoga classes offer relaxing and rejuvenating sessions especially designed for post-partum mummies and their new babies. My aim is always to guide and help you adjust your exercise routine to include your new baby and grow in confidence as you exercise together.

The classes last around an hour and involve gentle yoga stretches and postures for mums to aid recovery post birth, to increase flexibility and stamina and to restore integrity to the spine, the core and the pelvic floor and always at a pace that suits you and your baby. I always include some gentle baby yoga too. This promotes a sense of wellbeing, whilst soothing and bonding for you and baby.

Yoga provides a wonderful resource for you and your baby that allows you to deal more positively with the life changes that motherhood brings, dealing more positively with stress and encouraging mindful relaxation and self-care. Something that can so easily be over looked with new motherhood.

Benefits of Mother and Baby Yoga:

* Strengthening and toning your muscles, especially abdominals, pelvic floor and back.

* Encouraging you and baby to find time and space for relaxation.

* Using the breath to increase calm and confidence.

* Improving your sleep.

* Promoting understanding of your baby’s development.

* Engaging and bonding with your baby.

* Meeting other mums and sharing time together

No yoga experience required and you’re welcome to join after your 6-8 week GP check (Or 10 weeks post C-Section Birth). I have all the equipment you’ll need, just bring a blanket and a toy for baby, water to drink and a sense of humour. My classes are fun and friendly and I look forward to welcoming you to YOGA for 2.

Fun, high energy and educational! Classes for 3 months – 4 year olds written by early years specialists and presented by a fully qualified, experienced primary teacher to introduce the world of letters and sounds to your little ones through play.

Each session is full of games, music, dance and much more to teach your children in exciting and interactive ways.

As well as an early introduction to the world of literacy we also help your little one develop their fine and gross motor skills, turn taking skills, speech, confidence and social skills.

Find the right class for your little one:

Babies Class (3 months – walking) An early introduction to the world of literacy through nursery rhymes using a multisensory approach. If you have had a baby in lockdown this class will be a lovely way to meet other mums in a safe, indoor environment.

Minis’ Class (age 1- 2 years) A great class to help develop your toddlers speech and language skills through songs, rhymes, role play whilst also introducing them to letters and sounds.

Preschool Class (age 3 – 4 years). My preschool classes are fun and energetic so your little ones won’t even realise they are learning.

We work on oral blending and segmenting to help with early sound recognition. We learn letter sounds and develop our fine and gross motor skills through dance and play.

These classes will give both you as parents and your children confidence in early Phonics before starting school.

Come along with your little one this Summer and find out for yourself!
