• Welcome to

    Chilled Cherubs

    Baby Massage & Yoga

    Where parents can relax and develop their baby massage and baby yoga skills in a relaxed friendly environment

  • What We Do

    We offer a range of courses/sessions with a difference,
    in venues around Plymouth, Ivybridge, Saltash, Liskeard and Callington.
     

    We believe that happy relaxed parents help create happy relaxed babies.

    We aim to make sure that you and your baby have a special experience in our courses and sessions.

     

    Your baby's wellbeing is our number 1 priority and as such (and in line with new research from Manchester University) we choose to take babies from 8 weeks of age on all our courses. If your baby is under 8 weeks, then the one to one home session may be more suitable.

     

    We welcome babies with medical conditions/additional needs and work with you and your

    baby's health professional to ensure the course/session is suitable.

      • Who We Are

         

        I am a Blossom and Berry qualified Baby Massage and Yoga Instructor (accredited by Royal College of Midwives, Federation of Holistic Therapists, International, Complementary Therapists Association) , with over 10 years experience working with children under 5 years. I am also a qualified parenting practitioner with a BA in Community Education with Community Studies.

         

        As a local mum I tried baby massage and yoga with my son William, and loved the quality time this gave us together - along with relief from colic and the all important improved sleeping pattern.

         

        With my classes I want to offer something for the whole family, that dads, grandparents and other family members can also attend and enjoy. I want it to be a friendly nurturing environment, where there is always time for a slice of homemade cake, a chat and a cup of tea.
