Benefits for the parents…

  • All the selected asanas are designed to help parents, and especially breast-feeding mums, relax the pressure on their neck, their shoulders and their backs, as well as to strengthen the body’s weakest areas post-partum.
  • Helps parents rediscover the magical power of breath, especially in situations which require serenity.
  • Helps parents acquire self-confidence about their relationship with their baby, as they learn natural ways to calm and connect with him at a deeper level.
  • Strengthens the bond between parent and baby.
  • Parents can learn and use these techniques at home.
  • And of course, parents enjoy getting to know and making friends with other parents, while babies love being together with other babies!

Benefits for the babies…

  • Helps their natural and emotional development, as they become aware of their body.
  • Strengthens the baby’s trust in her parents.
  • Strengthens the bond between baby and parent.
  • Helps babies sleep more and better.
  • Relieves the pain caused by the passing of gas and helps babies digest better.
  • Attenuates stress and development stress through the relaxation techniques taught.


Baby Massage

Baby massage is a lovely way to soothe, calm and enjoy time with your baby. It can also help you bond with them.

Benefits of Baby Massage

  • Helps the creation of a code of non-verbal communication between the parent and the baby and thus strengthens the connection and bond between them. During the massage, the baby links his/her parents’ faces to the feeling of relaxation and calmness that he/she experiences and thus feels closer to them
  • Stimulates basic body systems (circulatory, immune, digestive, nervous, hormonal, lymphatic, respiratory, musculoskeletal), thus helping them operate and develop more smoothly.
  • The relaxation attained through massage results in better, deeper and longer sleep for baby.
  • Improves the baby’s ability to calm itself, as it learns to recognise its own tension and knows how to relax him/herself.
  • During the massage stress levels go down, with the production of oxytocin, a hormone with relaxing and painkilling effects.

 Professional family photos

Most of us forget to take photos… A professional photo session forces us to stop and capture a moment in our family life, which we would probably forget to do on our own. It’s the idea of stopping at least once a year to record where we are in our lives, to freeze time before it continues again along its relentless route to adulthood.
