Our baby yoga courses combine traditional Hatha yoga techniques with dynamic and rhythmic movements which are perfect for nurturing and developing your baby’s ever-changing body.
Yoga gives your baby the chance to explore movement in many dimensions, including: facing forwards, backwards, upwards and downwards, all within a completely safe environment.
Alongside movement, our baby yoga courses include: singing, sensory activities, calm breathing techniques, relaxation and plenty of interactive fun for parent and child.
Our baby yoga classes currently run in Angmering near Rustington, East Preston and Littlehampton and in home/ house session in Brighton, Hove and Worthing areas. They are always great fun and as we focus upon your baby's movement through gentle stretches you'll be able to aid your baby’s development in no time at all.
