Founder of Vital Cores
Massage and Yoga Instructor
Babies and Children
I have been practicing yoga for over three years but I first became interested in baby massage and yoga for children at the beginning of 2017 when my son was identified as having additional needs regarding his vision and coordination. Unfamiliar terms like 'crossing the midline', 'retained primitive reflexes' and 'vestibular and proprioceptive systems' were used so I decided to read further into this. The more I read, the more interested, excited and hopeful I became and Vital Cores was born.
I say to all parents when I first meet them: "I wish I knew 7 years ago, what I know now". The benefits of baby massage and baby yoga are scientifically proven and it is incredible when I get feedback from parents saying how relaxed their baby is, or how much the tummy routine has helped.
Meeting new parents and babies, seeing them grow and develop over the weeks is very exciting. I adore teaching! I love working with the toddlers and children and being a part of their yoga journey. I love watching their faces as they work through poses and have fun playing yoga games.
I am passionate about sharing the wonderful and vast benefits of both massage and yoga and truly believe that the earlier we can provide little ones with sensory rich experiences, activating all of the sensory systems, the more we can positively impact their learning later on.
