Where can I do Baby Yoga?

20 June 2023

If you're looking to try baby yoga with your little one, there are a few places you can go. Aside from the many classes, free online videos can show you how to do baby yoga at home. Here are 5 great places to start your baby yoga journey.

NHS provided baby yoga classes

Some NHS trusts offer baby yoga classes for new mums. The classes are led by experienced instructors who can help parents to learn the correct techniques and positions. Along with providing a safe and supportive environment for parents to practise with their babies, the classes also allow parents to meet other parents and socialise. There is often a charge for these courses but they are kept as low as possible. 

Paid baby yoga classes

Aside from NHS classes, there are also a large number of private baby yoga providers. These classes are usually more expensive than NHS classes, but there tends to be better availability of sessions and more detail covered. Look online for providers close to you, or ask around for recommendations. Along with the relaxation and exercise, there can be opportunities to socialise after the sessions. Classes typically last for around an hour, and parents may be asked to bring a mat or towel to class.

At home

Getting out of the house and attending a class on time can be tricky with a baby. There are plenty of free online videos which can show you how to do baby yoga at home if you find that easier than a class. A good place to start is YouTube. You can also find DVDs in baby stores or available to purchase online. Some providers live stream classes, where you may have opportunities to interact, although there’s often a cost for this. Doing baby yoga at home is a great way to bond with your little one, and it can be a fun and relaxing activity for both of you. 

Your local community centre

Another place to try baby yoga is at your local community centre. Many community centres offer free or low-cost classes for parents and their babies. This is a good option for parents who want to try yoga but are on a budget. These venues typically have a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, which can be helpful for parents who are new to baby yoga. A community centre is a great place to meet other parents and form a support network in your local area.

A friend's house

If you have a friend already doing baby yoga, you could always ask to join them for a session. This is a great way to try baby yoga without committing to a class. It can be helpful to have someone around who is familiar with the exercises and can help guide you. If you have several friends interested in baby yoga, you could take turns hosting sessions at each others’ homes for a bit of variety.

There are many places around to try baby yoga. It’s a great way to bond with your baby and can be a fun and relaxing activity for both of you. If you're unsure about attending a class, ask a friend already doing baby yoga to join them for a session, or look for free online videos.
