Three new parenting workshops to try with Abu Dhabi's Bodytree Studio

Abu Dhabi's Bodytree Studio is kicking off the new year with three cool classes for the whole family to try.

Baby massage classes
This five-week baby massage course taking place at Bodytree Studio in Saadiyat Beach Club is suitable for tiny babies of four weeks up to little crawlers.

And, as well as promising some quality bonding time for mum, dad and baby, the massage sessions will leave tiny tots feeling relaxed and calm.

But that's not all, because the massage also comes with heaps of health benefits for your mini me from reducing emotional stress to relieving symptoms of colic and teething.

It's not all about the small people though, mums and dads will leave feeling closer to their infants while also gaining a deeper understanding of their little one's behaviour, cries and body language. That should make those sleepless nights a little more manageable.
Dhs625 (five-week course). Every Sun from Sun Jan 19- Sun Feb 16, 10am-11.15am.

Kegel exercises
This is definitely one for the mums!

A pelvic-floor focused workshop will take palace at Bodytree's main studio and promises to teach you all about the importance of pelvic floor exercises, particularly after you've given birth.

Get ready to discover all the things that those crucial muscles do that you probably had no idea about, like how they relate to sport and what can happen when they don't work as they should.

The coach will give you various exercises to try at home all with the view of ensuring your kegels are doing what they're supposed to.
Dhs150. Wed Jan 22, 10am-11.30am.

Family yoga
Grab the whole gang, plus your yoga mats, and head to the main Bodytree Studio for a fun yoga session that the whole family will enjoy.

The hour-long class will allow mums and dads to spend quality time with their kiddos while they attempt to master some tricky poses and breathing techniques.

Aimed at all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis, this is one way sure fire way to keep your kid's attention on you rather than on their iPad or PS4... Sometimes needs must!
