I'm Corinna, an early years music specialist, and mother to two young children. I trained as a baby massage and yoga instructor after fifteen years teaching in primary education, and I absolutely love working with new mums and babies.
I had quite a hard time with my first baby, who didn't sleep much and didn't settle unless attached to me, so I know how difficult these early weeks and months can be. I firmly believe that a supportive network of other new mums can be transformative in your experience of new motherhood, and this is central to the philosophy of my classes.
Classes are a lovely combination of baby massage and yoga, low-key sensory stimulation perfect for young babies, lots of singing, acupressure, and relaxation for both mum and baby. You will always be greeted with a lovely cuppa, and there is always cake at the end of every session (let's face it, you've earned it!) There's time at the beginning and end to chat to other mums, and it's a lovely supportive and welcoming atmosphere. Class sizes never exceed nine mums, so you have a chance to get to know the rest of the group well. You are welcome to come along and try a class for free, and if you enjoy it, sign up for a block of five sessions at £45. You can pay via bank transfer, or with your card in advance of your block.
Have a look at my facebook page to see lots more photos and videos of classes.
These sessions are suitable for babies who are confident sitters and crawlers. We sing, play instruments, move, and have a selection of toys for the babies to play freely with. Tea/coffee and cake is included in every session, as is a chance to chat and connect with other mums. If you haven't been to a session before, please come along for a free trial before deciding whether you'd like to book on for a five week block at £45. Sessions are at Valley Crescent Centre in Wrenthorpe.
