Mother and Baby Movement Group

  • Studio One Pilates and Movement (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This group is a welcoming space for mums to connect with each other and their babies. We will come together for six weeks of supportive sessions providing the opportunity to stretch, breathe, and move with your baby. 

Movement is our first language. As babies it is how we explore the world, develop our relationships with our parents and families, and how we express our emotions. During these sessions, you will be facilitated through a dancing dialogue with your child, connecting to your own instincts as you and baby continue to strengthen your bond. There will also be time for talking together as a community of mothers, sharing a spectrum of experiences in a non-judgemental environment.

We will look at:

  • Stimulating creativity
  • Paying attention to how babies communicate through movement
  • Attuning to your baby, reflecting on and taking care of their needs
  • Acknowledging and attending to your needs as a woman and mother
  • Resourcing yourself through your own body, returning to home
  • Responding to emotional overwhelm
  • Nourishing yourself and finding balance
     

Sessions are open to mums and babies aged 6 weeks to 8 months, and are booked as part of a six week programme. 

Starting on Wednesday 14 March (10:30 - 11:30) and running until Wednesday 18 April

£60 for the six-week series, booking via Eventbrite - Early Bird Tickets (15% off) available till the end of February.

Moving and Communicating Together

Moving and Communicating Together

A wellbeing workshop series for toddlers, crawlers, and their mums. 

This group is a friendly space for mums and their children to move with each other. We will come together for six weeks of supportive sessions providing the opportunity to stretch, breathe, and move with your child. 

Movement is our first language. During these sessions, you will be guided through a dancing dialogue with your child. As your little one becomes more verbal and finds new ways to express themselves, uncover better communication through play and movement in this child-led environment. There will also be time for talking together as a community of mothers, sharing a spectrum of experiences in a non-judgemental environment.

We will look at:

- Stimulating creativity through collaborative play
- Paying attention to non-verbal cues
- Exploring emotional-regulation
- Acknowledging and attending to your needs as a woman and mother
- Resourcing yourself through your own body, returning to home
- Nourishing yourself and finding balance

Sessions are open to mums and children aged between 8 and 18 months, and are booked as part of a six week programme.

Starting on Wednesday 14 March (11:45 - 12:45) and running until Wednesday 18 April

£60 for the six-week series, booking via Eventbrite - Early Bird Tickets (15% off) available till the end of February.

Moving in the Here and Now

Moving in the Here and Now

Incorporating embodiment into daily life

Take time out to breathe, focus, and get out of your head

  • relieve tension
  • develop skills in grounding
  • find your own strong foundation and inner resources to carry forward into daily life
  • tune into subtler gut responses
  • reconnect physical sensations with emotional responses
  • experiment and play

As a small group, we will work together compassionately exploring themes through movement, while offering space for individual work through tuning into your internal rhythms and following your intuition. 

Is this workshop for me?
You may enjoy this workshop if you are looking for a break and a chance to release. You’re probably already open to trying new experiences, and interested in self-care. You may already be very tuned in to your emotions, and the physical signals your body gives in times of stress. If so, this is an opportunity to deepen your understanding through a creative process. If not, here is your chance to begin exploring!

What to expect
This workshop is a chance to take time out of the busy rushing of the day to day.  We will begin with an introduction and check-in, followed by an hour’s facilitated movement and tuning in, culminating in time to reflect. You do not need any movement experience to take part, and your movement explorations can be as functional or wild, as within your comfort zone or without, as you would like. Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing and bring water.

£20
To book your place, please email firm.footing.movement@gmail.com
