Virtual newborn baby massage class
When: Friday’s 
Time: 10am
Class time: 35-40 mins
Online booking:
Blooming Babies virtual newborn baby massage courses will teach you how to harness the soothing, nurturing power of touch.
The virtual setting as well the shorter class time of 35 to 40 minute is perfect for you and your newborn. The class is a lovely introduction into baby massage, set in your home, one to one, with no distraction as you get to know your new baby. We will explore your baby’s behaviour, their baby cues as you learn to soothe and relieve baby ailments through touch.

Groups will deliberately be kept small to provide opportunity to ask questions as Annie, a registered Midwife can offer support during the class.

It’s absolutely fine to have toddlers with you during the class, as the class is virtual, we practice the massage strokes on mute. If you need to attend to your toddler feel free to leave and re join at any point. Daddies are welcome too.

Blooming babies absolutely love Baby Massage!

FREE live online classes are conducted on Zoom & Facebook. Class timetables are updated each week on our facebook page, so check here for the latest information.

If you haven’t already, head over to our Instagram page and follow us @brimhamsfitnesscentre for bonus workouts, food ideas and fitness tips👍There’s something for everyone. Why not virtually bring someone along?

The NSPCC Pregnancy in Mind service is for pregnant women who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression. We know that pregnancy can be an anxious time for many women and that the current circumstances are likely to be causing additional stress and uncertainty.

We usually run a group work programme but as we are currently unable to offer this we are offering a remote one-to-one service.

The service will offer approximately 4 x weekly sessions. The focus is around reducing anxiety/improving mood and providing techniques and strategies to manage this. Once you’ve contacted us a worker will be allocated and they will be in touch to have a chat with you about your needs so they can make sure the sessions offer you the support you need.

Contact will be by phone initially but then if you prefer we can use alternative media to support video contact.


Please get in touch to find out how we can offer you support.


If a worker isn’t immediately available then someone

will get back in touch as soon as possible.

Please leave your name, contact number and email address.

*Workshop for pre walkers with Teacher Hollie & Jack* Wednesday at 10.30
At The Little Gym Harrogate & Leeds classes start from just 4 months old and we are missing seeing all the new Bugs joining our classes.  Sadly our gyms are closed and are unlikely to be reopening in the near future.  I’m sure you had plans to attend a range of classes and your maternity hasn’t quite worked out as you have planned.  Teacher Hollie has certainly experienced this and she is still off on maternity leave with Baby Jack.  We are keen that you don’t all miss out!!
If your little one is still a pre walker, Teacher Hollie & other instructors will be running a regular Zoom class on a Wednesday morning at 10.30, which is free to attend. We would love you to join us and experience why we at The Little Gym believe movement is such a key part of child development.

We would love to have you all join us for our first workshop. Drop us an email to and we will send you the login details for the Zoom class on a weekly basis! Or if you have any questions you can also get in touch. We hope to see you all next week!

Why do we focus on physical development and movement at such a young age?
The brain’s master plan is for movement to become automated. As movement becomes automated, it will free up our little ones brain to focus on another task.  This is how we become able to multitask. Multi tasking is laying a thinking task on top of automated tasks. The only way for a movement to become automated, is through repetition. By spotting our little ones through a range of movements we can help with this automation, whilst engaging all their senses and working on basic resistance exercises.  Basic movement exercises will help with bilateral coordination, development of proprioception awareness, depth perception, core strength, balance and other benefits!
 Don’t forget our social media pages are jam-packed with lots of ideas to keep moving, to keep learning and to keep having fun!  Subscribe to our YouTube   Facebook and Instagram pages for even more activities, live classes, tips and ways to keep in touch.

We look forward to seeing your smiling faces in the gym as soon as possible, but until then, we can’t wait to hang out with you online!

Heaven and Hell Fitness

We are now just 1 week into changing our business from face to face exercise classes in Harrogate and Knaresborough to creating a brand new online fitness club- heaven and hell fitness online .
We are really pleased with how this is going and it is incredible how many people are finding our classes are helping to “keep them sane” “brightening up their days” “picking up their spirits” and many many more comments.
We operate our classes through an online platform called zoom- you can see all of your friends and recognisable faces from classes. We get to see our clients so we can correct them if they aren’t doing things correctly- so it’s not just like exercise in front of a video- all are classes are live and interactive. We are really positive and are putting across really good messages to our customers about keeping active, having fun and bringing some kind of normal from our home to theirs.
Sport England and the government  are having a big push on keeping active whilst staying at home #stayinworkout
We have a full weekly timetable of 14 live classes a week, everyone in the family can join in and on a Saturday morning we run a family class. £12 per month- we’re keeping the price low so we can reach out to everyone, making it accessible to all.

Knaresborough Thula mama – sing to your baby!

Thula Mama is an informal and friendly singing group for women and their babies. We sing songs and lullabies from a variety of traditions and cultures around the world, mostly with a theme relating to families or babies, mixing gentle lullabies with upbeat songs.  No experience is
necessary as everything is taught by ear and everyone is welcome.
Jenny firmly believes everyone can sing, all they need is a bit of
encouragement. Most of her ‘Thula Mamas’ start by claiming they can’t
sing, but before they know it they are singing beautiful harmonies

During lockdown Thula Mamas are continuing to sing and chat together
in weekly zoom meetings. Jenny is also providing sing along videos to
keep everyone singing all week. Thula Mamas who would like to be involved are also working together with Jenny to create virtual choir videos.

Everything is provided on a pay as you can basis with a suggested
donation of £3-£5 per week but no obligation to pay anything if you
are struggling due to the crisis.
Check out our facebook page and group and the national Thula Mama website for more details
or you can ring or text  Jenny Cook for more information on 07971200801

Story time with Kiki for under 10’s – FREE

Storytime with Kiki for 6-9-year-olds

Entertaining, Educational, Empowering Stories every Monday to Thursday.  Join me and Kiki on Facebook every day at 3pm starting Monday the 20th of April.

I would love to “do my bit” for the families of Harrogate. I’m going to entertain the “mini troops” with stories from my books. All you need is a comfy sofa and a child. (

I know you’re stretched. I know you don’t have much time at the moment. I know the kids are doing your head in! Let me and Kiki entertain them for a while. If I could just tame my own cat to sit on my lap and look cute whilst I read…ha ha, not likely. And if you know me, you know I read at local schools, and Harrogate Library, I write courses for PSHE Yr 5s and 6s. So, your kids are in safe hands!

Come meet Kiki!

The stories are inspired by my cat, who sadly passed away. She was small, polite and sweet and she made me laugh. She represented the values of kindness, selflessness and extraordinary powers for one so small. I wanted to immortalise her amazing abilities for my children in the form of fun adventure stories. I believe all children should have the chance to enjoy them, as each story explores a moral through plots filled with twists and mischief, culminating in an inner victory and lessons learned. Kiki and her friends are always faced with a big dilemma. They triumph over seemingly impossible situations following the virtues of honesty, teamwork and of course, Kiki’s amazing powers. The pivotal element is Kiki’s self-confidence, which in times of uncertainty, enables her to outwit the baddies and be a strong beacon of calm, reliable hope.

Meet me!

As a single mother working from home for 15 years, I genuinely relate to the challenges involved in getting everything done without feeling like a peeled and baked potato at the end of the day! Use and abuse this session of wholesome fun for your kids and, perhaps more importantly, a rest for YOU!

Join me and Kiki on Facebook every day at 3pm starting Monday the 20th of April.
