🌟 Flying Yogis Sydney
Would you like your child to be more coordinated, mindful, confident, healthy and calm? But they just want to be upside down, inside out and flipping off equipment?!
Our purpose has always been to create programs that perfectly blend the two goals. The result – confident, happy, healthy kids who have all the tools to take on life’s plethora of challenges. Starting with Family Yoga for toddlers, followed by Bendybods for preschoolers, then Flying Yogis for primary school children, tweens then teens … our age-specific programs are a local favourite in the Inner West area.

🌟 Gymbaroo Glebe/ Gymbaroo Redfern
The Australian created program is trusted and recommended by Paediatricians, Early Childhood Nurses, OT’s and Physios. They understand that newborns and babies have immature brains that can be easily overstimulated, that is why our Gymbaroo classes are devised to give babies gentle, natural stimulation so that their little brains and bodies can process without becoming overtired and irritable.
We also pride ourselves in giving new parents information that will help them become the experts in their baby’s development. Learn how to massage, hold, entertain, dance, exercise your baby so that they will naturally meet their motor milestones like rolling, crawling and walking. Parents and babies love our bespoke equipment, music and friendly, caring teachers.
Our classes have only 8 – 10 babies. We even have a dedicated Baby room at our Glebe centre.
Meet other parents and share the joy of a Baby ROO class each week.
