More about the Teacher:

 

Jessica Sicre, founder of Serenity Cocoon Baby Massage & Baby Yoga discovered baby massage while expecting her second baby girl. A serene moment on holiday led her to this new love  - first with her own daughters and now also as a teacher. 

 

Mama of two born in Luxembourg, baby massage & baby yoga has become a part of Jessica’s family life and her way to relax together, connect with and support her daughters in their health.

 

“Time stands still with baby massage; a magic way to connect with our baby when life around us is hectic and stressful. We can create a serene bubble in which to enjoy time together while supporting our baby’s health and development in a natural way. Baby yoga has similar benefits as massage and I was particularly drawn to it as a fun and playful way to compensate for my baby’s time spent in the car seat and/or buggy: A great practice to learn for the modern mama!"

 

Jessica, founder of Serenity Cocoon Baby Massage & Baby Yoga, is certified as Baby Massage Instructor & Baby Yoga Instructor through the UK training provider Blossom & Berry, accredited by The Royal College of Midwives, The Federation of Holistic Therapists and the International Institute for Complementary Therapies. She is a member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapies (IICT).
