Baby Yoga is a loving and playful practice encouraging bonding. With roots in yoga, it’s a mindful practice, creating positive feelings and interaction.
Our Baby Yoga Course is taught over 4 weeks. Classes are baby led and include gentle yoga for mum with postnatal strengthening and relaxation.
We use dry massage techniques and yoga postures for baby which are often practiced whilst singing – this delights everyone, especially babies! Baby Yoga helps to build trust and understanding, enhancing communication and building confidence, as both mum and baby continue to get to know one another. It helps to release tension, is calming and fun!
Supporting your baby’s individual development, benefits of Baby Yoga include:
• Improved digestion & relief from colic & gas
• Strengthening the physical body
• Stimulating all the senses
• Balance & harmony of the body systems
• Helping to settle baby & improve sleep patterns
• Helping baby to move from reflex to voluntary movements
• Increases baby’s ability to cope with future challenges
Tactile stimulation during Baby Yoga contributes to baby’s brain development and nervous system. Baby Yoga enhances communication between mum and baby and is a celebration of each baby and their individuality!
Yoga postures can help to ease any stiffness, aches and pains that you may have. In Class we share supportive ways to lift, lower and hold your baby. Yoga sequences also aid digestion and can help calm the mind, enabling you to have a more restful sleep.
You’re welcome to feed and tend to your baby’s needs during class. In a group setting we share experiences and build friendships. This can help parents feel supported and that they’re not alone in their experiences.
I found Baby Yoga incredibly healing and relaxing. It helped my son to settle to sleep incredibly quickly in the evening when it normally takes him a while. It also helped with my postnatal recovery. I would thoroughly recommend Yogalime compared to other styles of yoga, as it is very much in tune with mother and baby. If you can’t do a particular move or feel uncomfortable, Sky always shows an alternative that is equally as effective. Sabrina

‘My little one (aged 4-5 months) loved our Baby Yoga classes with Sky. She really enjoyed the baby yoga postures and dry massage and all the songs and rhymes that went with them, The Green Frog song was a particular favourite. She had a big grin on her face throughout the classes. The classes had a great mixture of yoga for babies and gentle postnatal yoga for mothers. Sky was great with the babies and they really responded to her.’ Sarah
