Infant Massage

Support baby's growth and development with the magic of touch through infant massage

Massage is a great way to connect to your baby. Studies have shown infant massage can help babies sleep better, gain weight, reduce fussiness, improve health and relax. Parents who massage their babies often experience increased closeness to and understanding of their infants, reduced stress and post-natal depression, and simply enjoy a wonderful experience with their child.

Breathing Space's Infant Massage course teaches everything you need to incorporate time-tested massage techniques into your family routines. This unique course structure combines recorded lessons for self-paced learning with a live one-on-one lesson over Zoom (or alternative video chat platform). The personalized instruction and opportunity to ask question helps ensure parents understand the material and have a more fulfilling experience massaging their babies.

Jen teaches Breathing Space Baby Yoga & Play classes, Tot, Toddler and Little Families Yoga, afterschool yoga, Baby Signing Time, and directs day-off and summer camps . . . in addition to lactation consulting and doing bunch of behind the scenes stuff to keep it all running.

Jen brings a sense of joy and playfulness to her classes – both the adult and kids classes – and hopes to offer her students freedom she finds in yoga. She founded Breathing Space to create hub for family yoga on Capitol Hill and share her enthusiasm for age- and developmentally-appropriate poses, games, and songs with yogis of all ages.

Before turning her attention to yoga full time, Jen spent more than a decade working with non- profit organizations in everything from daily operations, event and volunteer management, and finance to national policy advocacy and media relations. Jen holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Massachusetts and a Master in Public Management degree from the University of Maryland. Her experience in social change movements and managing charitable organizations has been extremely helpful when working with schools and community organizations to implement yoga and mindfulness programs for children

How old should my baby be for infant massage?
There's no age requirement. The material can be adapted for any age. Most families find 3-6 weeks is an appropriate time to start, knowing that the younger the baby is, the less stamina they will have for a massage session. These techniques are most useful as instructed through early mobility – so 8-9 months – though massage has no age limit and variations on the techniques may be useful for years and years.
Can my spouse or partner take the course too?
