What makes Relaxed Baby Massage and Yoga classes so special?…..here’s what a group of lovely mums had to say
We recently went along to meet the lovely Anne-Marie from Relaxed Baby, we were keen to find out more about her classes and what makes them so special.
Within minutes of meeting Anne-Marie, it was clear to see what an amazing passion she has for creating a nurturing environment where mums, dads or grandparents have time with their babies, having fun, enjoying play and building friendships with other class attendees. Time is given to encourage conversation about all things related to raising little ones, for parents to feel they are not alone when it comes to issues such as feeding and sleeping. It was wonderful hearing about the longterm friendships that previous attendees have made.
While we could talk about what makes the classes so special, instead we decided to enlist the help of the lovely parents who have been in her classes this week, below are their comments –
‘I came to Anne-marie with my now 6 year old and found her classes (massage and yoga) to be fantastic for both myself and my son. So much so that when pregnant this time around, I was already enquiring about her classes to ensure I could join in again! My 4 month old son loved massage and is now really enjoying yoga and all the shapes and songs. There is a fantastic atmosphere, relaxed and friendly, yet informative and entertaining’
‘I’ve just started my second course of baby yoga as we loved the first course so much. A great variety of physical exercises to support babies development along with lots of fun nursery rhymes. Would definitely recommend!’
‘We started baby massage with Anne-marie who made us both feel so relaxed from the first session. We’re now doing baby yoga and Anne-marie’s approach towards it being led by the babies makes the session so enjoyable and has really helped my anxiety to going out with my baby.’
‘We have both thoroughly enjoyed the baby massage and baby yoga classes, it has been a lovely way to spend quality time together and also have lots of fun! Anne-marie is a brilliant teacher, she is calming and reassuring and the discussions she leads between the mums have been invaluable.’
‘Great class, a good mix of physical movement, songs and games that Zoe loves! Gives us lots of good things to do during playtime at home.’
‘Me and my little boy love Anne-Marie’s class. We first started with baby massage when he was a newborn and we’ve carried on the techniques we learned at bedtime and believe it’s a big part of why he is such a good sleeper. We are now on our second try of baby yoga which is excellent, not only Ellis but for me too.’
‘We have really enjoyed the baby massage and baby yoga classes. Anne-Marie is lovely, she makes the classes fun and puts you at ease. A great way to interact with your baby and a fab way to meet other mums and babies, especially if you’re a first time mum.’
‘I have attended various classes run by Anne-marie, ranging from baby massage, baby yoga and baby sing and sign. They have been invaluable for bonding with my babies, getting to know techniques that have helped my babies develop and relax. They have also been a great way of getting to know other mums locally, sharing ideas, products and sharing problems like teething, sleep deprivation etc. Anne-Marie is a complete natural with all the babies, very thoughtful, intuitive and knowledgeable. It’s been an absolute pleasure, thanks so much.’
Anne-Marie is dedicated to her ongoing professional development. She trained in baby yoga over 10 years ago, mums attending those classes enjoyed them so much, that they asked her to train in baby massage too and so she did. Her background prior to this was holistic therapy including aromatherapy, reflexology, focusing on the whole person. Anne-marie has just qualified in Baby Mindful and intends to continuously add to her wonderful portfolio.
After hearing such wonderful reviews, we just cannot recommended her classes enough!
Anne-Marie has a new block of classes starting soon, all of which can be viewed here. Don’t miss your chance to book.
