Why not start baby massage/yoga classes of your own?

Rubba-bubba is building a very reputable brand that parents can trust. Our mission is to provide small, safe and personal classes for parents and their babies to get the most out of this special time together-Mat leave is better with baby friends!

With Rubba-bubba you would have a flexible, family orientated, rewarding business. Choose your hours, the days you wish to work and the amount of classes you would like to run. You could make such a difference to the parents in your community who are just beginning their journey with their new baby.

Tailoring your classes to your style and comfort…

Being a Rubba-bubba baby massage instructor is great! You are part of a growing brand with support from the founder and fellow instructors alike.
There is the freedom of deciding what hours you want to work, as well as tailoring your classes to your style and comfort.
A big part is the rewarding feeling you get when you hear how you have helped a baby with things like constipation or teething. And seeing friendships develop between mums is especially rewarding!

Owning Your
Own Business

You don’t have the risk of being by yourself. You have the safety net of a brand with the freedom of your own classes and running them the way you want to. The hard work of developing the brand, the lesson plans, the admin, the stationary, the website, the booking system (I could go on…) has been done so that you have the best possible chance of success.

Our comprehensive accredited 2/3 day training course will fully equip you with the confidence and knowledge to run your own successful baby massage and yoga classes




This is one of the only baby massage/yoga courses in the UK where you don’t have to be a health professional, hold an adult massage certificate or be a qualified practitioner-however it is preferred! All you need is average child development knowledge, an enthusiastic, friendly attitude and motivation to make a difference. This course is approved by IICT. 

Health Visitors, Midwives & qualified Nursery Nurses are also welcome to learn baby massage and yoga to complement the free service at point of deliervy you provide within the NHS. The course is just day 1 of the course with a practical assessment in your setting. This course is accredited by IICT and CTHa. Many Health boards have funding for this course so just ask!



This is the best job…..

I joined Rubba-Bubba as I took my son to the massage classes and loved them. The massage also helped with his wind and tummy troubles! The great thing about being part of the franchise is I choose when and where I hold classes within me territory- meaning I can work them around my family, doing as much or as little as I need.
I love meeting all the wonderful parents and their babies each week, teaching them the skill of massage but also having time for a chat and a cuppa at the end.
This is the best job and works for me and my family xx

Fantastic class…

I really enjoyed the course! It was a small enough group that it felt really personal and Tash was a wonderful instructor, patient, funny and approachable. Every module was explained fully, and repeated if need be, it was fun and hands-on and it was interactive too which got all our imaginations going, I left with so many ideas about how I’m going to make the most out of my business!

So friendly and approachable…

I want to thank Tash for being so friendly and approachable when I first started teaching my classes. Tash helped me a lot and always had time for any questions that I had or to try and find solutions to any problems I had. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching classes and I liked how flexible it could be as I could choose the days and times that I taught.
I also loved meeting all the new mums with their babies, it was lovely to see the attachment between mum and baby whilst doing baby massage.

Tash was a wonderful mentor…

I started my RB journey whilst on mat leave after my own little one, and then carried on my RB business alongside my part-time job which worked out really well. I met so many amazing mums and babies through my classes, and I loved watching them grow and seeing lots of new-mum-friends being made in my classes and carried on afterwards! Tash was a wonderful mentor and a great friend, and I feel very lucky to have enjoyed such a fun couple of years! I’d recommend this business to anyone looking to earn a fab income while enjoying exciting classes with cute babies and friendly mums, what’s not to love! You get full support from Tash and be part of the ever growing Rubba-Bubba family and I’m grateful to have made some fantastic memories and friends.”

Tash has been extremely supportive…

I thoroughly enjoyed the Rubba Bubba Baby Massage Course with Tash and learnt a huge amount over the two days which gave me the confidence to teach my own classes. Tash has been extremely supportive in setting up my own business and classes since the course and the Rubba Bubba brand really makes a difference to getting the message out there. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a new venture and enjoy meeting new parents and babies 😊
