The Benefits Of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga
Touch is very powerful. We use it naturally and without thinking to calm, relax, reassure or heal. A simple hug says a lot. For example if our baby is upset, we may cuddle them or rub their back.
‘Babies have a biological need for close physical affection. Nothing is more important to their emotional, physical and intellectual development than a comforting cuddle or a loving touch.‘(Dr.Lin Day, 2008).
Baby massage and yoga an extension of this natural instinct. Massage has been around for thousands of years, however in the UK, it has only become popular in the last 10 years. It is a wonderful way of spending quality time with your new baby doing such a simple and beneficial activity together. Studies show that not everyone has ‘love at first sight’ with their baby; (after an initial wave of maternal feelings) nothing can prepare you for this amazing journey as a parent-but we can make it easier on the way!
We attended both rhyme time and story massage with Sara and I cannot recommend these classes enough!
Really intimate and friendly classes which were perfect for making both me and my little one feel right at home.
Sara did a wonderful job making us feel safe with social distancing measures yet maintained a relaxed atmosphere.
Thank you so much Sara!!! Xx

- And most importantly- a relaxing & fun activity for both parent & baby
Such a wonderful experience – I’m so glad I signed up. I was anxious about being in a group environment, but needn’t have been. Sarah couldn’t be more warm, welcoming and understanding. She creates a lovely, relaxing atmosphere and a great opportunity to bond with our tiny new humans and have some relaxing time with a cuppa! I really cannot recommend these class enough to all new mums (even if you’re a bit anxious like me)
Thanks so much Sara! xx
After doing a Rubba-Bubba course 3 years ago with my 1st child baby massage was an absolute must this time too! It is a lovely relaxing class and a great way to meet other mum’s! Have just finished stage 1 with Rach and can’t wait to start stage 2 in September after having a taste of it today!
Really enjoyed baby massage stage 1! We did most of the lessons in person before lockdown- but the last 2 online. Sara ensures that the online lessons work well so we’ve just signed up to stage 1 yoga via zoom. Highly recommend stage 1 massage, something nice to do with the little ones during all this madness xx
