How old does baby need to be?
Baby Massage classes are aimed at babies aged 8 weeks to pre crawling.
Baby Yoga classes are suitable from 8 weeks postnatal. However a lot of the moves are geared towards babies aged 12 weeks - pre-crawling. Baby Yoga is a weekly class and is structured as a rolling course, which you can book in blocks of 5 weeks. You can continue to rebook each course for as long as baby is enjoying the classes.

What if my baby cries?
We don't mind! You may find that your baby cries during part of the massage or yoga class. This is completely normal and does not mean that you are doing something wrong or that your baby does not like what you are doing. If your baby begins to cry during the course you are the best judge of whether to continue to join in. Try to identify why your baby is crying by listening to his different cries. If you feel your baby has had enough, try again another day. Remember you are learning together.
What if I miss a session?
If you miss a session, don’t worry we repeat everything each week and you can catch up with anything you are unsure of. If you need extra help, just ask your instructor. Remember Classes are about learning about how you can communicate, soothe and connect with your baby. There will be plenty of opportunity to practice later in the course or at home.
