ABOUT THE CLASS
Baby Massage Course
Mojo Yard’s baby massage course is based on the principle that a nurturing touch is a fundamental part of a baby’s wellbeing and development. Our classes provide you with enjoyable and easy to remember massage routines that enable you to bond and have fun with your little one through the most basic form of communication - touch!
Over 4 weeks discover techniques to help improve sleep, soothe teething pain and relieve symptoms of constipation, wind and colic. These fun classes are packed with lots of singing and nursery rhymes and also a great chance to meet other local parents over a cup of tea and some tasty snacks.
Babies are welcome from 6 weeks until crawling.
Mum of two Billie Woodcraft has been a massage therapist and yoga instructor for nearly 10 years. Since having children she’s decided to specialise in mum and baby health and wellbeing. She is also a qualified NCT breastfeeding counsellor. Whilst on maternity leave this year, Billie decided to set up her own business Mojo Yard, which brings together yoga, massage and support for new parents. She currently runs pregnancy yoga , mum and baby yoga, and baby massage classes and will be launching more workshops over the coming months.
