Baby Yoga is the perfect follow on course to Baby Massage as parents can continue to massage their babies and learn additional moves to support their babies co-ordination, strength and movement. She runs regular courses in Beckenham and private classes for groups of parents in their own home.
Using her knowledge and experience as a qualified Speech and Language Therapist Helen also runs Baby Talk, baby signing and yoga classes for babies aged 6-12 months. She also runs Toddler Yoga classes with a focus on developing children’s speech and language skills.
The IAIM is a global organisation and the world class standard for the teaching and training of Infant Massage. Learning to massage your baby can help to relax you both and get to know each other better. It can also help to improve your baby’s sleep and relieve the discomfort of wind and colic.
