Your Parent Facing Baby Massage Sessions
Hands on Babies Baby Massage is suitable for babies of all ages and you will be able offer classes for new born babies (so long as there are no health considerations) with the upper age for babies being however long they are happy to participate and engage with the sessions.

We will provide you with everything you need to structure and plan your Baby Massage classes including full week by week session plans and parent facing hand-outs to deliver your classes to parents over a 5 week course. We will also show you have you can change the weekly structure if you wish to deliver as a 6 or even 7 week course.

Your Parent Facing Baby Yoga Sessions
Hands on Babies Baby Yoga is suitable for babies from 8 weeks old (babies need to have had their 6-8 week GP check) through to active walkers. So the age ranging for babies in your sessions is wide – opening you up to a potentially larger market or community.
Baby Yoga makes a fantastic addition to your Baby Massage provision enabling you to maximise your Class Participation and your Marketing Spend
Instructors do tend to find that most people who participate in Baby Massage classes first with their younger babies then graduate to participating in the Baby Yoga classes as their babies get a little older.
The provision of Baby Yoga is therefore a fantastic business opportunity as it does enable you to get lots of repeat business from your Baby Massage attendees, maximising your marketing & advertising spend and generating positive word of mouth.
The Hands on Babies Baby Yoga Training will enable you to run two different types of Baby Yoga sessions:
Hands on Babies will provide you with a full session plan toolkit and parent facing hand-outs to deliver your classes over a 5 week course to parents for both the Beginner and the Advanced sessions.
Our Toolkit of Moves and Postures will also show you how you can change the weekly structure to deliver your courses over 6 or even 7 weeks if you wish.
The training will also enable you to run group sessions, 1-2-1 sessions with more vulnerable families who do not want to participate in group sessions and targeted groups for people other than Mums (for example Dad only sessions or carer sessions).
