Welcome to Hands on Babies

Baby Massage and Baby Yoga Instructor Training by Hands on Babies


The Corona Virus is unnerving and unsettling for us all and we at Hands on Babies recognise this and are following the latest Government Guidelines. The health and safety of staff and course attendees & their families is a prime concern for us and we will do everything in our power to support the most up to date Government guidelines.

As such and with a heavy heart we have taken the decision to postpone all face to face training until the beginning of May. Thereafter we will continue to monitor things and will keep all of our customers advised accordingly. Rest assured we will continue running our face to face courses just as soon as we can.

Hands on Babies Launches Online Instructor Training Courses

In the meantime we are delighted to announce that our long awaited Virtual Classroom is now open for business. We are now able to offer both the Baby Massage AND the Baby Yoga Instructor Training Courses online from our Virtual Classroom or via a tool such as Zoom so that all attendees can participate from the safety and convenience of their own homes. We have run virtual events like this in the past and can guarantee that the quality of learning is in no way compromised.

In addition and for added peace of mind, all virtual course attendees conducting our online training will have the option of attending the second day of any scheduled group course in person (when it is deemed appropriate and safe) and completely free of charge if they feel it is necessary, once they have conducted the virtual training.

It is our intention therefore to continue offering high quality Baby Massage and Baby Yoga training in our Virtual Learning Environment and to ensure that all of our course attendees benefit from the fantastic experience of learning these incredible new skills.


In these troubling times we have implemented the following policy to ensure that all course attendees either Virtual or Face to Face can commit to training secure in the knowledge that whatever happens over the coming weeks and months that their place on the next safe and convenient training course, either Face to Face or Virtual, is secured for them and that the flexibility to amend dates and courses as required

In the event that our INSTRUCTOR is unable to conduct the course either in person or via a live broadcast then we will either postpone to a later date (either at a physical course or a virtual event) or refund all monies.

In the event that a COURSE ATTENDEE is not able to attend a course either in person or virtually, then we will of course reschedule them to a later date/event at no extra cost.

We will of course be following the appropriate guidance on the situation and will keep all course attendees fully abreast of any developments or further disruptions to our training schedule.

If you are approaching the end of a budgetary period and would like to purchase 'Training Vouchers’ from your current budget which can be redeemed at a later date, then please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Taking a pragmatic view for the present and an optimistic view of the future, if people are stuck at home, now could provide a unique opportunity to partake in a Virtual Online Course where you can learn the great skills of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga in the convenience, comfort and security of your own home.

We wish all of our customers all the very best over the coming months and would like to publicly express our thanks and support for all of the healthcare workers and support staff for their endeavours over this difficult period.

Yours faithfully,

Why Offer Baby Massage & Baby Yoga classes?

Our Baby Massage and Baby Yoga Instructor Training Courses provide you with everything that you need to know to become a fully qualified instructor and to provide a warm and relaxing introduction to the basics of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga and in today’s demanding commercial environment, it makes good business sense to offer a service for which there will be strong demand.

In 2009 as a nation we spent over £20,000,000 per week on baby products and with an increasing trend towards cash rich, time poor parents, this trend is set to rise even in the light of current economic conditions. When it comes to their children, most parents don’t think about the costs, they just think about the benefits and the benefits of baby massage are significant, impressive and undisputed.

With these benefits in mind, the popularity of infant massage is increasing at an amazing rate, with many major brands responding to this by developing baby massage products and advertising the benefits of incorporating baby massage into a bedtime routine, such as helping baby sleep and helping to alleviate teething and colic.

As a result, there is a demand like never before for quality baby massage classes nationwide...

hands on babies training courses offer you the opportunity to attain an enviable work life balance, providing a potentially significant income with the flexibility of being your own boss.

Our courses provide everything you need to become a fully qualified instructor, quickly and simply.

Baby massage provides a wonderful sense of calmness for the baby through the reduction of stress causing hormones.

Baby massage is especially effective in premature babies, massage techniques can be adapted to help increase much needed weight gain and prevent any further well-being complications. Babies with special-needs also are well known to benefit from regular skilled massage.

Infant massage is an old tradition which can help Mum's give their precious baby the best loving start in life to promote health and happiness. The physical benefits of infant massage are practically endless, but the immediate benefits include:
