ABOUT ME

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Karen James and I run First touch, classes for parents/carers and babies around London, which specialise in Baby massage, baby yoga and sensory play classes that support babies in reaching their developmental milestones.
I am NNEB trained with over 25 years experience of working with children and parents in various early years settings. I previously worked within the Health Visiting team as a Community nursery nurse where I gained valuable experience. This led me to train and qualify with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) in 2004 and as a baby yoga instructor with Birthlight in 2007. I absolutely fell in love with the wonderful concept of baby massage, and I think that every parent should massage his or her baby,

Baby yoga is a wonderful compliment to baby massage and will give your baby an immediate sense of well-being. Yoga helps to stimulate and stretch the body in order to help the body to relax, the physical stimulation helps strengthen the spine, develop supple joints and enliven the body's systems.
The classes offer an combination of touching, stroking, handling and movement and brings about a multisensory stimulation and helps move your baby on from reflex motions the voluntary movements. Most of all Baby Yoga is about having fun with your baby, interacting, giving you more confidence in handling your baby and meeting other parents. During just one Baby Yoga session, your baby can receive as much stimulation as they normally would in a whole day, this brings about a state of contentment, and promotes a peaceful deep sleep.
