Barre&Baby™ (bumps - walking)

Barre&Baby is a space for people to bring balance back into their lives using the beauty of dance and movement. From both a physical and mental point of view, dance can be strengthening and liberating. Every step of Barre&Baby has been designed to improve pregnancy and postnatal wellbeing. By involving everything from fingers to toes, we’re aiming to create space, improve circulation, strengthen the body and increase flexibility. Greater body awareness leads to better posture and alignment (crucial to avoiding aches and pains) and empowers mums to trust their body’s signals (so useful during pregnancy and birth!). 

By staying so close to you, your baby develops a sense of security and protection. Our soothing and relaxing music, played live, transmits positive feelings and supports your baby’s sensory development. The vestibular system (the part of the inner ear that helps coordinate movement with balance) is stimulated by your own movements as you dance, and your baby’s cardiac system grows stronger as a result of the workout. 

Barre&Baby can provide powerful benefits for the mind too. As you concentrate on our dance steps, you’ll find yourself entering a sort of meditation in movement, while activating the release of endorphins (the ‘feel-good’ hormones), boosting energy levels and uplifting your spirit. 

Finally, as the saying goes: “meeting someone while dancing means meeting them in their soul”. Many friendships are born on the dance floor, and Barre&Baby classes are a wonderful way to make new friends. All levels are welcome, you do not have to have any dance experience to benefit from Barre&Baby. 

This class includes live music and will be accompanied by a musician. 

Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move in, dance yoga socks or soft ballet shoes. 

Expectant mothers are welcome after 12 weeks of pregnancy.  

For postnatal mums, please make sure you have had your 6 week check before joining. Please bring a carrier/sling for the babywearing section of the session. 

You are welcome to book the whole term or to drop in to these sessions.
