What to bring with you:

A towel for your little one to lie on and a comfy cushion for you to sit on.
Massage oil and tea/coffee are provided during the class.

What age are these courses for?

The sessions are tailored for babies aged 6 weeks to pre-crawling.

What is the structure of the course?

Theses weekly sessions run for 1 hour in 5 week  blocks to give you the chance to learn songs, rhymes, massage strokes and gentle yoga movements, through repetition each week.  This enables babies who may be feeding, sleeping, crying all to have a chance to relax and enjoy the strokes at some point over the block.  Parents and babies find it easy to get used to, and grow to love, the massage strokes and have fun learning the songs and lullabies.

 What are the benefits?

This is a great way to meet other parents in a relaxed environment, where your wee ones can enjoy the company of other babies.  The babies love all the songs, rhymes and sensory materials and toys.

Baby massage and yoga can help stimulate sensory development and improve sleep patterns in your baby, help to relieve gas and colic, plus give you new ways to have fun and connect with your baby.

Courses take place at:  The Link (previously The Kabin), 5 Mayburn Walk,  Loanhead, EH20 9HG

Free parking is available in the car park to the rear of The Link or on street, taking local road markings into account.
