I’ve previously mentioned that E absolutely loves baby yoga and fortunately there is a Kalma Baby franchise in our area. We’ve been doing yoga for around a year now and he loves it. I’m extremely thankful that my mum has continued taking him, now that I am back at work so that he doesn’t miss out. Thankfully there have been a few weekend specials, so I haven’t missed out completely!
My mum has taken all of her grandchildren to the same playgroup on a Thursday morning, for the past seven years, but unfortunately the people running it decided to stop last term, so she had been looking for something else for her and the other playgroup attendees to go to. As if by fate, Lucy who runs baby yoga decided to open up Kalma Hub as a base to deliver her yoga sessions as well as use her skills as a teacher to provide a wider programme of sessions for baby and children in Newton Aycliffe, as there is very little around.
Since October 2019; playgroups, twinkle time and the kalma baby yoga have been available in the very child-friendly setting. The toys are all brand new, the facilities are surrounded by parking and the programme of events is constantly evolving thanks to Lucy listening to where demand is from parents – baby massage has recently been added to the kalma baby offer there, as has the ability to use the space for cost-effective birthday parties. I’m so grateful that this space is available to parents in Newton Aycliffe, Sedgefield and Darlington areas when they really need it. I definitely could have done with somewhere like this back in 2016 during my first maternity leave! Little Learners are also using the space for messy play, which is a great idea as we’ve done their activities in another venue and it was a little cold, so the hub is a much more suitable venue.
I know this sounds like an ad, but it’s not! I’m just super pleased that there is something like this available on the doorstep and wanted any parents searching google to know about it. You can find out all about kalma hub by visiting their facebook page
