With massaging your baby, you will get to know your child’s body language, learn how to react on his needs and your parental intuition will increase which creates self-confidence. 

 

THE FORMATION

Baby massage is easy to learn and fun! We will teach you different techniques and strokes inspired by the Indian Shantala massage, Swedish massage, reflexology and yoga. Sleeping rhythm, reflexes, and recognising developmental milestones, are some of the topics and skills you will learn.

 

A summary of the lessons will be presented in a brochure, so you will always have something to look back on.

 

The training is informal, fun and educative. It can take place in small group sessions (max 4 families) or in private sessions.

 

During the program, you will get introduced to baby yoga. This short and specialised training can be booked after completing the baby massage course.

 

 

BABY YOGA

Baby yoga provides a set of practices to enhance playful interaction and communication between parent and baby. Yoga, just like any movement, can stimulate muscles, nerves and emotional development in babies.

It is beneficial for all babies, you don’t need to practice yoga to get started with your baby. Baby Yoga perfectly complements baby massage and expands the benefits of touch with those of movement and relaxation:

* Yoga moves adapted to babies

(mini twists, mini stretches, upper and lower body movements, diagonal movements)

* Playful moves with rhymes and songs
