Baby & Toddler Yoga
Baby yoga is yoga for your baby!
It’s a fun form of active play and engagement with our baby.
Baby yoga draws inspiration from “hatha" yoga for adults, incorporating gentle movements and stretches for our baby to help keep them healthy and happy.
Classes will include the following:
Stretches, moves or “mini asanas” (poses) for your baby, designed to help baby’s body gently stretch and move in a positive way, especially when often in car sat, buggy or crib.
Lots of songs and play to have fun together with our baby along with rolls, sings and dips to help with baby's sense of balance and body awareness.
Dry massage routines and strokes (helping to stimulate baby’s nervous system, immunity, etc.)
Breathing, relaxation and mindfulness exercises, for you.
Yoga-inspired movements for you as mama (designed to help restore and nourish your postnatal body).
After class, participants will
Feel energised, loved, connected with your baby; refreshed!
Feel nicely “in the moment and present” in mind, body and spirit
Enjoy a relaxed and happy baby!

More about the Teacher:
Jessica Sicre, founder of Serenity Cocoon Baby Massage & Baby Yoga discovered baby massage while expecting her second baby girl. A serene moment on holiday led her to this new love - first with her own daughters and now also as a teacher.
Mama of two born in Luxembourg, baby massage & baby yoga has become a part of Jessica’s family life and her way to relax together, connect with and support her daughters in their health.
“Time stands still with baby massage; a magic way to connect with our baby when life around us is hectic and stressful. We can create a serene bubble in which to enjoy time together while supporting our baby’s health and development in a natural way. Baby yoga has similar benefits as massage and I was particularly drawn to it as a fun and playful way to compensate for my baby’s time spent in the car seat and/or buggy: A great practice to learn for the modern mama!"
