My name is Laura and I have recently created Kinection Baby and Kids. I have been in Childcare for over 20 years. I have worked in nurseries, private homes as a Nanny, a hospital maternity unit as a support worker, trained as a Post Natal Doula and most importantly I am a Mummy of 2.
For me, Kinection Baby and Kids is all about the connection between your baby or child and you or themselves.
The classes I offer are to give you that one to one time to spend with your child, and to give you the tools to do this at home.
Through the Baby Massage course we build up the baby massage strokes week by week, strengthening the bond between you and your baby, so that by the end you know what your baby likes and how you can use this to help them. The techniques we use help with teething, colic, wind, constipation, to name but a few. There is also time for some relaxation, so that you and your baby both leave the class relaxed. The course is also a great way to meet other parents.
Baby Yoga is for babies from 12 weeks, and stimulates baby's senses through movement, touch, songs and stretching. There are also yoga inspired parent stretches to help re-align and tone.
Baby Massage and Baby Yoga are Baby-Led classes so you can participate as much or as little as you like.
I also run a yoga class for pre-school aged children to come along to with their grown up and have some time together. These are weekly themed classes where we think about our feelings, practicing a deep breathing technique, play a game to learn some yoga poses, do a themed craft and finish on a story and cuddle with Mummy or Daddy.
