Are you a new parent looking to connect with other parents and babies? Do you want somewhere to go to share your feelings, vent about challenges, and feel emotionally supported? Then join our parents’ Babbles Lounge, a place where you can freestyle and feel very welcomed.
As part of our parents and babies support network, at The Well Garden, our new mums/dads and baby Babbles Lounge.. will be an extension of our baby massage classes.
Becoming a parent is extremely rewarding, but it is also hard work so there can be many highs and lows with a brand new baby. And some shared stories help raising awareness around common challenges and common joys.
An integral part of our baby massage course format, is leaving space for discussion; this creates a forum where parents can share ideas about specific subjects, it allows them to experience the social feelings of parenting together and it creates a time and space in a non-judgemental environment where parents can feel supported about personal choices with regards to parenting.
Join us on Mondays from 12 to 1pm, for some relaxing time together, these meet ups will not only give structure to your week, but will give you something fun to look forward to… (all parents have 10% discount at local caffe on drinks if you would like to continue the conversation there)..
Share your experiences, resources, and information with other new parents in a safe and supportive environment, and be part of a lovely growing community. The circle is led by Karen James First touch who also teaches our baby massage and just for dad’s baby yoga classes.
Embrace new parenthood and make lifelong friends! This lovely meet ups are for all parents whom have been attending any of Karen’s classes and Born Together’s series and workshops, and want to carry on their journeys with Karen.

SATURDAY SERIES: WINTER SOLSTICE YIN & MYOFASCIAL RELEASE WORKSHOP
with Fotini Vasilopoulos.
£25, £ 20 early birds
A wonderful workshop to celebrate the beginning of the winter festivities together.
Fotini will guide you to use asana and therapy-based ball work to help release old holding patterns and areas of tightness, unwinding the fascial web to restore freedom and lightness in the body in preparation for winter.
Working deep to affect the fascia, a fibrous membrane that envelops our entire body and reflects our habitual patterns, this workshop aims to be a gateway into the Kidney and Urinary Bladder meridians for combating depleting energy in the body.”
Taking a multi-layered approach towards releasing the fascia, we will move through a grounding Yin sequence to promote restoration of connective tissue and support for the body whilst exploring physical edges, following with a self myo-fascial release using therapy- based ball. This session will conclude in a guided Yoga Nidra practice to cultivate a deep feeling of calm, relaxation and an overall sense of wellbeing.
Yin yoga is a slow, exploratory and listening practice where grounding positions are long held to revitalise the energy body through associated meridian channels. With the focus on connective tissue stimulation, an edge may be identified during deeply held stretches or through gentle compression in the body. Yoga Nidra explores a conscious state of deep sleep as the body is settled into a relaxed position of choice.
According to Chinese medicine, the Kidney and Urinary Bladder meridian which governs our body’s most basic and fundamental energy. By promoting proper health and functioning of this pair of meridians we can prepare the body for winter. The Kidney and Urinary Bladder meridians resonate with the winter equinox and the element of water which is associated with time of rest and our ability to flow and to overcome obstacles just like water does.
Open to all levels.
