Babies In Motion

Baby Classes In Sherwood, Nottingham.

What are the classes like?

Bringing a new human into the world is magical, but it can also be a difficult and isolating period for parents. Babies In Motion is a blend of massage, yoga and sensory play for you to engage in with your baby, and it aims to help both caregiver and baby to improve their general sense of well-being. You will learn practical massage moves that encourage you both to relax and which can help to alleviate some common newborn problems like wind, constipation and colic. The yoga moves will inspire you to get your bodies moving and this will facilitate stretching and toning of your muscles. Your baby’s development will be enhanced through sensory play, songs and your touch. The classes are a bonding experience and aim to promote the development of a secure attachment between you both. Additionally, these classes will help you to connect with other parents in your community and share your experiences with others in a similar situation. You can join one of our specialist baby classes in Nottingham.
