A new, totally safe and massively fun, dance based exercise class for baby wearing mums in Norwich!
Inspired by a YouTube video of a group of Californian dads in a dance class, grooving to hip hop, all wearing with pride their precious babies in slings, pumping them around the dancefloor, babies snoozing and giggling, Jackie Heffer-Cooke founder of YogaBubs is proudly launching Norwich DiscoBubs; a seriously fun babywearing dance class!
DiscoBubs is a safe, fun, babywearing dance based exercise for baby wearing mums, explains Jackie “at least we will start with mums and then see if the dads want some action too!”
Starting in January 2017, The classes will be led by experienced YogaBubs teacher Alysha Hudson, who is also a professional dance teacher!
“The class will be composed of a warm-up, then onto learning a dance, a different one every week from a wide range of genres from street to salsa, followed by a specific exercise to music – to work for example bums and tums – then finishing with a stretch and cool down. It is fundamentally a safe post-natal exercise class dressed up in a baby wearing sling and a LOT of fun!”
“You do not have to be a great dancer to join in, this will be a fun, simple, easy to follow exercise class, matched safely to post-natal bodies” adds Jackie, “also we don’t want anyone worrying about what they can or cannot do – if your baby needs a feed, or a change of nappy, just do it – this is a warm welcoming class, a community of mums with babies, all in the same boat. Go with the flow of how you, your body, and your baby feel today, the only thing you need to enjoy is great music and have a sense of fun. This is a perfect class for lifting post-natal winter blues!”.
Try a taster at the YogaBubs Christmas Party!
Jackie and Alysha will be presenting a taster of DiscoBubs at the YogaBubs Christmas Party, on December 14th (12pm until 2pm at The Open, Bank Plain.) Tickets cost just £5 and are be available to purchase on the YogaBubs website! All profits from the party will go to the Midwifery Led Birth Unit to help them buy the vital equipment they need to support women in having a better birthing experience, something Jackie Heffer-Cooke very much supports with her work in HypnoBirthing and The Birthing Tool Kit.
