A simple foundation course in nurturing touch, love & connection to introduce you to the benefits of teaching baby massage & yoga and to support parents in your community.
We train many people from different background to teach baby massage and baby yoga. Many are allied health professionals, lecturers, midwives and health visitors. Below are endorsements from a selection of students who have undertaken and recommend our training;
“I thoroughly enjoyed my Baby Massage training with Blossom and Berry. As an Occupational Therapist (OT) I have been keen to branch out my expertise by combining my OT knowledge and skills with that of baby massage for future classes. I feel that this course is very complimentary to my profession as it encourages baby development and parent/baby relationships vital for biopsychosocial well being.
As a current health professional I already have learning in Anatomy and Physiology, and Professional conduct, however Gayle was able to teach me in a way that made this up to date and relevant for me in terms of baby massage.Gayle clearly knows her field and I particularly enjoyed some of the discussions we had during the course which has opened me up to further insight and learning.
I would recommend Blossom and Berry to any other Allied Health Professional interested in this type of training.”
I am the parenting tutor and coordinator for a FE college and recently attended a Blossom & Berry’s training course for baby massage, in order to extend the college’s community outreach parenting programme.
The two day training programme was of a high standard. Being a small group we had the benefit of peer learning as well as one to one support from the trainer. The teaching was excellent, well pitched for both experienced and inexperienced facilitators and the trainer continually checked and used the learners prior knowledge throughout the training.
The learning was supported by an extensive user friendly resource folder. Each module had clear aims and objectives, sufficient under pinning knowledge, lists of prior and suggested further reading as well as links to other online resources; all of which were needed to complete the required course work. The reading and study required to complete the modules provided a good grounding of knowledge to support the delivery and facilitation of baby massage courses as well as good business and marketing practices.
The practical demonstrations were clear and easy to follow and backed up with links to video demonstrations. Each trainee was given feedback from both the trainer and fellow trainees when practicing demonstrating baby massage.When coursework was handed in for marking the turn- around was within 48hours.
I would not hesitate in highly recommending Blossom & Berry for providing an excellent professional, yet friendly, training programme for anyone wanting to train in baby massage whether they are new or experienced in facilitating groups and I am proud to be accredited by Blossom & Berry. Thank you
“The best courses that I have ever done! I loved them. Thank you Gayle for being such an inspiration and for training me so well. I can’t imagine there being better baby massage and yoga training out there. Gayle enriches the training with her amazing knowledge and expertise in baby massage and yoga and makes the training thoroughly of interest to the student and maintains a really comfortable and stimulating learning environment. The training materials are so well thought out and helpful and Gayle is so very supportive throughout your journey”.
“As a midwife for the last 14 years I have worked in many areas of maternity care, the last few years concentrating on antenatal and postnatal care. From a personal point of view I felt like I wanted to offer something more. I wanted to do something that would be easy, fun, beneficial and most importantly help parents understand and enjoy their babies.
The Baby Massage and Yoga course that Blossom and Berry offered seemed perfect. The course was structured and educational, it wasn’t just about learning a baby massage routine it was about learning the reasons why strokes and movements are beneficial and the physiology behind it. The course also focused on teaching skills and how to become a great instructor and at the end I was provided with some essential resources to aid my progress. As an added bonus Blossom and Berry even came to Dubai to run the Instructor Course meaning I could carry on working as normal.
Since qualifying I have thoroughly enjoyed being an instructor, even singing in front of strangers! What is so lovely is to see is the way parents interact with their babies and the pleasure the babies get from this attention and time. It is also amazing to see the babies’ reactions to the massage, whether that be giggles and laughs or the relief from expelling trapped wind. As parents become more aware of the benefits of baby massage the demand for the course grows. I feel like a have found my ‘special’ skill, I can now help parents do something which is instinctual and nurturing and that what fosters the amazing bond between parent and child”
“As a Pre and Postnatal Yoga teacher, I wanted to extend my teaching to include yoga inspired stretches for babies within my classes. I chose to train in both Baby Massage and Baby Yoga with Blossom and Berry. I cannot recommend these courses highly enough. The teaching was exceptional, Gayle is very passionate about her training and this is demonstrated in the excellent presentation of the course and the resources that you receive. If you are considering training in Baby Massage and Baby Yoga, you will not be disappointed with Blossom and Berry. I continually recommend this course to many of my fellow yoga teachers looking to work with babies.”
I want to start by thanking Gayle for a wonderful course, she was warm and welcoming and her depth of knowledge and learning tools have left me feeling fully equipped to delivery amazing baby massage and yoga classes that will enhance the service we provide at our children centre. I would recommend Blossom and Berry to anyone looking for comprehensive courses.
