Mindfulness and Relaxation classes

Baby Mindful classes offer parents with babies aged 0-6 months a rare opportunity to take time to relax and enjoy the new growing bond between them and their baby. The new born stage is a busy and exhausting time (albeit magical of course!) and any moments for mindfulness or relaxation can be few and far between, so these classes are a great way to start to carve out a little time for calm.

Classes gently follow seven steps of relaxation; Move, Play, Stretch, Feel, Breathe, Believe and Relax (steps also used in our sister classes, Relax Kids).

But what really makes Baby Mindful unique is that we acknowledge that it’s just as important for parents to have a sense of calm, as it is for babies. It’s so easy to forget parent’s need for a pause in those busy newborn months where focus is on a hectic cycle of feeding, changing, playing, (not) napping and feeding some more, so Baby Mindful classes aim to provide for both your needs, allowing you well deserved time to ‘just be’.

Baby Mindful Where and When in Harrogate

Classes are at 10.15am on Wednesdays in term time

Venue is Westcliffe Hall (in the Kairos Room) just off Cold Bath Road (2 Harlow Terrace, Harrogate, HG2 0PN)

Boogie Babes

As well as their usual sessions, Boogie Babes are joining the residents of 4 Dementia care homes! Are you looking for an afternoon activity for your little ones? Then come and be part of something special: Come and wiggle, dance, sing, shake pom-poms, flip the parachute, and pop the bubbles with the residents of one of four Dementia care units.

After reading about the positive impact brought about by mixing these two very different age groups and the benefits for both, I decided Boogie Babes would be perfect!

Refreshments included at the end of the class.

Come and have a truly happy afternoon

Harrogate Gymnastics Pre-School Sessions

Pre-School – Term time sessions

Getting a head start

Bouncing, spinning, rolling – children are already natural-born gymnasts. So if you want to help yours develop their physical skills, what better place to start than at Harrogate Gymnastics? In our Pre-school Classes we teach your children important skills like balance and co-ordination. With expert supervision and a playful environment, it’s a great way for them to have fun and lay the foundations of a healthy, active lifestyle. With an adventure playground to explore and lots of exciting activities to get involved in, the sessions are always energetic and entertaining. And while they’re having fun with new friends, they’ll also be getting a head start in the world of physical exercise.

Structured Classes

Our pre-school structured classes are for children aged from 2.5 years old who can participate independently of their parent/carer. Each class is 40 minutes of fun, continuous activity using the full range of gymnastic equipment, trampolines, and the foam pit. With a small coach to children ratio, each child receives proper instruction and has many opportunities to practise gymnastic skills that help develop and improve their listening skills, balance, spacial awareness, coordination, flexibly, agility, and strength. We will regularly evaluate each child’s progress against the stage criteria to see which specific areas need further work, where they are excelling and how much they are improving.

 

Drop-in Sessions.

All of our drop-in sessions are open to all pre-school children accompanied by an adult and, new to the drop-in, we now have a special baby area for our smallest members. Sessions are £5 each child, and there’s no need to book – just come along and have a go!
