The baby massage and yoga/stretches class (Stage 1)
Rubba-bubba baby massage is a small, calm and friendly group of 10-12 parents and babies in an informal and fun environment. Ideally your baby should be from 6 weeks- crawling, however it’s at your discretion when you and your baby are ready to join, you are welcome from newborn- NO Doctors notes required. The instructors will guide you through the easy-to-follow baby massage strokes, concentrating on a different body part each week, then we do some baby yoga or baby stretches (venue dependant). The sessions are run on a weekly basis to allow you plenty of time to practice the massage strokes in the privacy of your own home if you like. Don’t worry if your baby needs changing or feeding, the class is baby-led and his/her needs always come first. We massage a different body part each week and recap from the week before in case you can’t make it. The class is a rolling course so you are welcome to book on to as many courses and come as long as you would like to. Each week we massage for around 20-30 minutes then have tea, refreshments and a natter! After 6 weeks you will be able to do a full body massage on your baby and reap the benefits that follow. Everything including organic baby massage oil is provided for class. I stock organic baby massage oil in class for £4.50 per 100mls for home use.
The Massage fun and Sensory Class (Stage 2)
The baby massage strokes is specially adapted for the more busy, rolling, sitting up (or nearly) inquisitive and nearly mobile baby. Suitable from 4 months. We sing songs in both English and Welsh (venue dependant) along with the massage strokes, yoga, play with lots of sensory toys, bubbles etc for a very interactive and fun class.
