Delamere Forest Babywearing Yoga and Walk

Delamere Forest – Mon 29th Oct 10am – 12pm

We will take in the forest and its offerings while we walk in company of likeminded parents, chat and relax.  During the walk, we will concentrate on the spine and pelvic floor, enabling you to find space and length in your movement, which in turn will help with building core stability. Your baby too will learn how to regulate their emotions through your breath and centred emotional seat. £10 please book ahead. Click for more details
