Free baby movement lesson

By ways of deep touch and movement you help your baby sense his body parts and let him know himself better.

Learn simple and effective ways to encourage your baby’s discovery of his body parts.
This helps him feel and sense:

  • where his body parts are
  • to know that they belong to him
  • to sense his body’s boundaries
  • to learn how to control and use his hands and feet.



  • It nourishes and integrates the senses: seeing, hearing, sensing and dealing with gravity.
  • It creates comfort, wellbeing and pleasure with your baby’s own body.
  • It helps define the body boundaries of your baby (who am I? This hand belong to me, this is my foot. I can feel, hear, and see it) and nourishes the sense of self.
  • It encourages orientation in relation to
    • himself (up, down, forward, backward)
    • other people (who is important, who can I trust)
    • his surroundings (where’s the window, the door?)
  • It develops his sense of balance
  • It develops his sense of rhythm and sequence
  • It helps him learn to anticipate actions around him (momma takes the bottle and is going to pick me up)
  • It supports autonomy in self-initiated movements to reach, to act, to pick up and manipulate objects and to start moving around.

We look forward to see you and your baby!
