Tree Babies is currently hibernating until further notice
Class Duration : 60 minute class
Tree Babies is a very different 'baby group' - it is a gentle and mindful experience for you and your baby in nature. Babies must be worn in carriers or slings and I'm afraid at this point, it is not suitable for toddling/walking little beans. It is a time to connect with your baby, with your community and with nature and a time where nothing has to be done, nothing has to be achieved, it is a time for you to be just you.
This class is booked weekly
