Parent and Baby Yoga and Storytelling with Cocoon and Tatty Bumpkin
Wed, May 3, 2017, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM BST
Krishna from Tatty Bumpkin http://www.tattybumpkin.com/nottinghill/ and Cocoon Family Support are teaming up to host an exciting morning of relaxation and storytelling for parents and babies in aid of Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week (1st-7th May).
Tatty Bumpkin runs fun sessions combining music, yoga and storytelling for babies and children in Notting Hill, Maida Vale, Shepherd's Bush and Ealing. Sessions have been designed by yoga teachers, educationalists, physiotherapists and musicians. They have been running across the UK for over 10 years with the aim of making children Bendy, Giggly, Clever and Strong!
Their Baby Bumpkin programme uses the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum as its basis. With sessions focusing on the wellbeing of you and your baby.
All classes stimulate your baby's senses (to encourage early sensory processing skills), nurture their early communication and social skills and offer a lovely bonding experience for you both.
Baby Bumpkin yoga sessions have a lovely combination of sensory play, storytelling and rhymes - giving you a chance to relax and bond with your baby. They are suitable for babies from 6 weeks - 12 months. Please dress your baby in comfortable clothes such that they can move. Access to their bare feet would be useful for some of our yoga. The yoga session is primarily for the babies but we will do some stretches for mums as well. We will provide yoga mats.
