We have some exciting news that we want to share with you about the growth of the team AND we have released our March term times and locations across the North East for Baby Yoga.
We also have some amazing sleepsuits, vests and bibs that you can buy from your local instructor, or from the YogaPupz website – the sleepsuits and vest can be personalised with your babies name:
If you are new to our classes and are unsure about committing to a full 6 week term, please just let us know and we can work with you to try out one session before you pay for the full set of sessions 🐾
We have an amazing team of instructors who are dying to meet you and your baby to start them on their developmental journey:
Bev is our Sunderland instructor, she has 2 sons, Layton & Louie and is from the fitness industry having trained as a PT and fitness instructor she decided to move over to working with babies. Since she started with us in September 2016 she has had some amazing feedback for her classes and continues to inspire and entertain everyone in her sessions:
Jill is our Washington, Gateshead and Chester-le-Street instructor. She joined us in November 2016 and has gone from strength to strength with most of her classes now having a waiting list. She has a little boy, Harry, who inspired her to leave a job in sales to work with parents and babies who have been in her situation. The feedback we have receveived from Jill’s classes have been outstanding and we know that they will only get better:
Mel is our Durham instructor, she joined us in November 2016 and is from an early years background by working with the local children’s centres – she has 4 children and Noah is her youngest. Mel attended toddler yoga sessions with Noah and quickly found that it helped with his development as he was a premature baby – she then decided that she wanted to help pass on that development to other parents and their babies and joined the team.
Sessions will be starting very soon in Durham so if you are interested please let us know where you are and where you would love to see a baby yoga session:
At the end of March, Bev and Jill will be completing their toddler yoga training, meaning that they can accepted babies that are actively crawling all the way to pre-school age.
If you are interested in these sessions then please drop us an email and we will ensure that you are kept updated as soon as the bookings open up.
Lastly, we are super excited to announce that we have been nominated for another award. This time it is with the What’s On 4 Kids website and we are thrilled to have been put forward for our baby activities sessions – we will release further information once voting opens.
We will be keeping you updated with news on classes and progress on a fortnightly basis so watch out for our next newsletter but please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time as we are here for you 🐾

We love sensory during baby yoga session we include some form of sensory, whether we are using the Pom Poms or lying on the foil blankets – the babies are getting something from it.
Sensory play is so important for babies as they’re limited by their mobility and dexterity, but not their ability to interact with the world. Babies can enjoy feeling things, looking at things and smelling things – all of these things that they’re exploring help them to develop mentally.
In our classes we always play relaxing music at the start of the sessions, this lets baby know that they’re in baby yoga and it stimulates their senses ready to relax.
We also blow lots of bubbles during our final relaxation of the session, this is a great way to get babies eyes developing as they follow the falling bubbles.
We also include lovely sensory toys like this monster called Gilly, he is so soft but also smells like candy, as well as having crinkled ears and a hood that you can pull down:
Sensory bags are available to buy in your child’s very own YogaPupz bag, personalised with their name for only £10.
