Baby Yoga Classes with YogaBubs

Baby yoga and massage classes with YogaBubs are the perfect way to bond with your new baby whilst easing yourself gently back into fitness. 

Run by mother of two and expert yoga practitioner Jackie Heffer-Cooke, YogaBubs classes place emphasis on being able to take-away the skills and techniques you learn and really use them at home. Each class is packed with poses that gently encourage movement and natural development, YogaBubs yoga classes are suitable for babies up until they are crawling, and are held at a number of locations across Norwich and Norfolk.

We have now also introduced our new Motherstuff club; held after our Yogabubs classes, the Motherstuff club is a place where we hope to answer your questions about a range of topics. Each month we will welcome an expert in to talk to you about everything from weaning to pelvic floor. Find out more here. 

How babies benefit from YogaBubs – Baby Yoga

YogaBuds Baby Yoga in Norwich

Studies have shown that babies who receive nurturing touch through holding, massage and other forms of physical contact gain weight faster, are calmer and have better intellectual and motor development.

Babies enjoy being swung, rocked, stroked, massaged, gently stretched and sung to.

Yoga gives them this stimulus they so require and helps expend their energies, making them feel less frustrated, happier, calmer and able to sleep better.

Here are just a few of the many baby benefits of YogaBubs Baby Yoga.

Physical:

• Gently encourages the opening of babies chest and lungs, enables baby to breathe more effectively
• Brings more oxygen into the body helping baby’s nervous system and internal muscles and organs to work more effectively and efficiently
• Strengthens and tones muscles, keeping the spine straight and supple

Emotional:

• Baby yoga and massage classes encourage mum and baby to take some time out from the demands of daily life to connect through positive interaction, awareness and nurturing
• The communication encouraged through baby yoga and massage helps baby develop a sense of trust around them. This develops baby’s confidence and self-esteem
• Develops limbic system – the experience of emotion

Developmental:
 The bouncing, swinging, rocking and spinning movements are loved by babies as they develop their vestibular system, which helps the baby to balance

• By singing in class baby’s hearing and pre-language skills are developed
• Develops sense of spatial awareness, flexibility and the development of fine and gross motor skills
