Movement and Development Classes for Infants 0-12 months
Department of Infant's Kinetic Development in IROIS
Play - Movement - Evolution - Joy - Understanding - Communication - Touch - Placement - Development stages
These classes are suitable for parents and caregivers who are interested in understanding the fundamentals of their baby’s development through movement. To do so, we observe and learn about the importance of reflexes, movement patterns, equilibrium responses, senses and perception.
Through playful and gentle approach we can track any inhibited movement skills or delayed patterns, that may influence a baby’s future and become an obstacle in optimal development. With care and support we help the child realize its full potential in these early stages of life. Simply put, if crawling is a difficult task for a baby, using a child centered and non-invasive approach, we can overcome restrictions and make the child’s brain reach new choices and integration.
Movement and Development Classes are offered twice a month for each group and provide specific principles and indicators for the infants’ optimal and positive start in life. But, most importantly, in our classes we have fun and also discuss about playtime, sleep, nursing and feeding, toys, etc.
Together, we understand and appreciate all the wonderful things babies achieve, support what is coming next (i.e. from rolling to crawling), learn the importance of correct touching and handling to help babies set the basis for their physical, cognitive, emotional and social wellbeing.
Our classes are suitable also, for infants who may have suffered perinatal injuries such as: anomalies of the CNS, birth trauma, brain injuries, preterm birth, etc.
When the infant feels support and understanding, grows up having self-esteem, adaptability and choices.
Emphasis is given on comfort and ease, curiosity and movement. Kindly, make sure you wear comfortable clothes and be ready to roll and spend time on your belly with your baby! If during the class, you need to nurse, feed or change your baby, our space is suitable.
Let’s help together, our children to have a strong beginning in life.
The classes are led by Angeliki Lalagianni, a certified Infant Developmental Movement Educator from the School of Body Mind Centering.
