For babies who are experiencing a tongue restriction, they may have problems with their latch onto either a breast or bottle, alongside additional structural &/or alignment issues; resulting from a restrictive frenulum and/or birthing interventions.

All Feeding Methods Welcomed

Massage & Yoga

Baby Massage helps improve relaxation, encouraging longer sleep duration, helps to relieve digestive struggles (such as colic, teething, trapped wind, hiccoughs, crying and constipation), stimulates all of the major bodily systems, is relaxing and helps to strengthen the bond between parent and baby.

Baby & Toddler Yoga offers a fun and interactive session.  This yoga uses the 'hatha' approach which is very gentle and enables you to assist your little one into poses, thus helping develop milestones and trust. 

Yoga Babes from 8 weeks old, Yoga Totz from 5 months to 2 years old.

(n.b: this Yoga is to benefit the infant, it is NOT adult yoga with the infant in attendance)
