February Baby Massage Workshop



Baby Massage Workshop


Tuesday 27th February, 2-3:30pm



Massage is the most natural and instinctive form of caring for the baby. The new-born baby experiences the world through its senses, such as touch, smell, taste, sound and vision. These senses develop gradually. However, from the moment of birth, the baby already understands the language of touch. Join us on this Baby Massage Workshop led by Baby Massage Therapist, Lauren Wee.


What are the benefits of baby massage


Here are some of the benefits of baby massage:

  • Massage helps to create a unique bond between the parents and the baby.
  • It gives first-time parents more confidence.
  • Massage relaxes both the baby and the parent.
  • Mothers who suffer from postnatal depression may feel more positive when they experience their baby’s response to the massage.
  • Massage helps parents to be aware of their baby’s body and the developmental changes they are going through.
  • Regularly massaged babies develop their motor skills more quickly.
  • Massage helps to improved circulation, as well as promoting healthy skin and a strong immune system.
  • As the baby relaxes during the massage, their muscles also relax. As a result, massage can also help to ease conditions such as colic pain and constipation.
  • Baby massage is highly therapeutic. In addition to this, it can help with several ailments throughout early childhood.


This Baby Massage Workshop is run by paediatric physiotherapist Lauren Wee. It takes place on Tuesday 27th February at 2pm. Please note, this workshop is not suitable for babies who have received vaccinations within the last 48 hours. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Neti pot

When I was training to be a yoga teacher, one of the 6 purification techniques taught to us was Jala Neti ( also called Neti or Jaaneti). Purification techniques are sometimes performed as a way of preparing the body for a yoga practice.

Whenever the neti pots came out, I disappeared, always needing to be somewhere else at that moment in time… I had many techniques to avoid it: the bathroom, the water fountain, the shop, anything but the Net.

Pouring a saline solution up my hooter was really not for me and I have avoided it right up to today. I have got a steaming cold and, as a result, I now have sinus pain, so I have decided to give it another go. Talk about waiting until your back is against the wall!

I rushed to the Sivanada yoga studio nearby and bought myself a ceramic neti pot and salt. I had to follow the one photographic image as the instructions were in German!!! Although I did not find it as unpleasant as some people describe, it was not as bad as I remembered. So I will use …

Sharath Jois in London 2013

Sharath Jois will be in London teaching a week of primary and intermediate ashtanga yoga
From 25th-30th of August- in a central London location.
Booking for this will open mid May.
Through http://www.astangayogalondon.com/index2.cfm

A rare and wonderful treat to have Sharath in my home town-A big thank you to Hamish Hendry and ashtanga yoga London for organising this.

Going to have to set an alarm on my phone- as there will be a lot of takers for this....

All about the balance. Coconut water, wine and beer.

A snap from inside my fridge this week. The mix of wine, beer and vita coca sort of sums up my family really. The ones that drink wine and beer don't go in for the coco water-and the coco water drinker doesn't go in for wine or beer. In summary none of us need worry about the other nicking all the drinks :-)

Sharath Jois London tour 2013. What a wonderful week!

What an honour it has been to be part of the ashtanga yoga community sharing a week of yoga with the wonderful Sharath Jois here in London.

Meeting new people, seeing familiar faces, and even practising next to my daughter on one occasion. Sharath was truly happy and shiny (which was very contagious)  and even taught a short pranayama at the end of the led primary class on two occasions (which I personally have never experienced with him before). He said that you could use this pranayama if you were stressed or angry... perhaps he thinks us Londoners need it! :-)

He laughed a lot. My daughter Cally had her hands apart in virabhadrasana 1 and I could hear him saying "close your hands" and knew he was talking to her. I reached over and pushed them together. He whispered to me "is she yours?" and laughed (he later said he thought we looked very similar). We were two in a very large group. I'm sure everyone in the room has taken a bit of "Sharath sunshine&quo…
