My name is Elisa, I am a fully a qualified baby massage and baby yoga instructor.
My baby massage and baby yoga training was with Hands on Babies and additional training with Blossom and Berry .The qualification is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, Independent Therapist International and International Complementary Therapist Association.
I have a son, Teddy, aged 3 and I have first-hand experience of how to integrate baby massage and yoga into your routine. I have experienced the benefits massage and yoga can bring to you, your baby and your family.
My passion for massage and yoga started from attending classes when Teddy was newborn and integrating the principles in to our daily routines. Which Teddy still loves now.
I have spent all my working life with children and families. As a primary school teacher and more recently a volunteer role in NCT . I am also a trained breastfeeding co-ordinator , supporting mums and babies in our local area.
Working as a teacher and for our local NCT branch, has given me the opportunity to train and expand my knowledge on the importance of bonding and attachment. I understand how vital this is, especially within the first years of a child’s life.
The training I did with Hands on Babies and Blossom and Berry, cemented this passion for positive, nurturing touch and how beneficial it can be. I feel privileged to be able to run such a beautiful course that offers so much to babies, parents and caregivers.
I am also the proud owner of Baby Bear's Den. A family and community space , nesteld behind Streatham house nursery, Victoria Road west, Crosby.
I run all my classes there along side 15 other wonderful teachers, providing classes for babies, children, parents and families, with a focus on wellbeing and community.
I have a current Enhanced DBS and am trained regularly in safeguarding procedures. All of my qualifications Inc. my DBS check and public liability insurance are available on request.
I hope to welcome you to class soon xxx
