Baby yoga is a centuries old tradition that can help provide a child with the best possible start in life – health, happiness, security and the feeling of being loved. It has significant and undisputed benefits that are widely endorsed by medical practitioners across the world.

Baby yoga is based on Hatha yoga - the union of balance of body and mind. Hatha yoga involves the parent/carer learning a series of stretches, poses and moves which will enhance your baby’s physiological and psychological development as well as deepening your parent-infant bond through nurturing touch. It is a safe, fun and rewarding experience for both parent and baby, and an ideal follow on from barefoot baby massage.
