Children & Baby Yoga Classes
Each group are taught differently however, all the classes are very active involving exercise for the parent/carer as well as for the baby/child. Many exercises are enjoyed together, some with the use of props such as scarves, hoops, gym ball, puppets etc. All using lots of rhyme, songs and music. All classes start with a gentle warm up and end with a relaxation. Our classes are in line with the Early Years Foundation Stages and cover Communication & Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

Children’s sessions are from around 2 to 9 years which can be extended to include families and primary school children. This class is where your imagination can go wild. Children perform yoga-style stretches to create an interactive story, such as: Bendy Bunny having a bad day, Going on a Treasure Hunt or fun at the fairground and often using their parent/carer as props in their story. This is a fantastic way for parents to enjoy physical activity with their children and reap the benefits of yoga in a fun and exciting way. Music, props, singing and games also included and as with all our classes we follow EYFS and SEN guidelines and can adjust our class to meet the needs of the curriculum or children’s party theme. Grown-up in this class can get involved as little or as much as they want to, but our emphasis is always on family bonding and encouraging you to have fun with your child at home.
This class is for those that prefer to do any of our classes in the comfort of your own home as a one to one session or with a small group of friends and is particularly good for those that do not have a local class on days you are available or if you are a little shy of groups and need to gain confidence. If there is not a group to suit you in your area your could always request a Private Primate session from your local Mitchy Titch Teacher to do on your own or with a small group of friends.
This is an early evening yoga-fun & fitness class to help relax your baby/child before bedtime, so that you can both have a peaceful nights sleep or for those that would like to share yoga with another family member that is unable to during the daytime.
Stuck for what to do for your little one’s first Birthday or just want something different to entertain your toddler or young child. Ask an instructor in your area about a Yoga-fun and fitness party. Most teachers can offer basic to more elaborate parties and even theme it if you wish.
This is a four week programme for babies from birth to around 12 weeks and the main focus is to help with bonding and attachment as well as encouraging tummy time to help strengthen the baby’s spine and physical development in order to promote good posture. This programme is especially good for baby’s that have had a traumatic birth or mothers that have undergone a C-section or have postnatal depression. Massage techniques are performed with the baby clothed with parent/carer sitting on a chair. this is a great introduction for Developmental Baby Massage or Baby Yoga-fun & fitnesses.
As well as the orthodox massage techniques we concentrate on movements that aid your baby’s physical development so that full potential can be reached by acting on muscles and joints, which together with positive touch will mean that your baby develops both physically and emotionally and enjoys a full range of movements with confidence. Our classes help you connect with your baby and also include gentle postnatal stretches for you. We are proud to announce that all our instructors offering baby massage were taught by the author and pioneer for baby massage Peter Walker who has over 40 years experience studying babies and development

Although Mitchy Titch baby yoga and kids yoga classes encourage the interaction between parent/carer and baby/child we can appreciate that it is not always possible for the parent/carer to be present therefore adaptations can be made to classes delivered and venues, such as private nurseries, creches and schools, where the babies/children can still benefit from the exercise, fun and relaxation of a Mitch Titch children’s yoga class.
