YOGA AND MASSAGE FOR BABIES FROM 3 MONTHS UNTIL MOBILE
Baby yoga is a very gentle practice for new Mums and their babies and a great way to bond through activity and play. During the class we perform simple dry massage (through clothing), moves for hips, chest, arms and activities that encourage tummy time. Every class we practice various types of relaxation and breathing techniques as well as postnatal moves and yoga for mothers. It is also a chance to meet other Mums and share your experience.
Every Mum is a “teacher” for her own baby. The “real teacher” performs all the moves with a doll. During the class every Mum can attend to the needs of her baby such as feeding, changing a diaper etc.
One class is 45 minutes long.
The classes take place in Vothonas village.
Price: 40 euros for a 5 -class pass (valid for 7 weeks)
Walk-in participation: 10 Euros
Babies like repetition and routine and therefor it is recommended to commit to the practice on regular basis.
