New! Baby Massage Workshop in English
We offer the workshop in English! See for dates the practical info below.
Baby massage is a great way to spend time with your baby. The Shantala baby massage method is defined by it’s simplicity and with its mesmerizing rhythmic movements, it is very relaxing the baby as well as it’s mother or father, it enhances a baby’s sense of security, their sleep patterns as well as their immune-systems. It also promotes a healthy bonding process, and helps with self-regulation.
You will be taught some of the basic strokes and techniques of the Shantala method of baby massage in this workshop.
This method was brought from India to Europe by Fredric Leboyer, a French doctor who observed women in India massaging their baby’s with this rhythmic technique. A young mother called Shantala let him observe and photograph her as she massaged her son outside and he decided to name the method after her. It was then later adapted to Western lifestyle needs and this is what we teach mothers now. A beautiful tradition worthy of passing on.
At the end of the class the baby’s will be put in the tummy tub, so please bring a large towel to dry them off afterwards.
