Zumbini

Zumbini is an early childhood education program that uses original music and movement to promote cognitive, social, fine/gross motor skill and emotional development, all while creating a strong bonding experience for families.

  • Fine and gross motor skill development

Your child will be constantly moving during Zumbini class, developing their fine motor skills with small movements such as playing instruments, and their gross motor skills when performing large ones, such as dancing.

  • Social development

The interactive nature of this live class and mixed-aged format ensures highly impactful social interaction for children of the 0-4 age range.

  • Cognitive development

The mix of music and movement stimulates both sides of your child’s brain and forces them to draw patterns between the songs and activities in class. Furthermore, your child will use logic and reasoning to replicate the activities that he or she watches you do, such as wave a scarf or shake an egg shaker.

  • Emotional development

In addition to singing about how we feel, the variety of tempos and rhythms in the music will cause your child tofeel a wide range of different emotions during class, stimulating their emotional development at this critical age.

This class is led by Trixie. It is currently full but a new session will run from 18 October to 6 December. You can already book your spot!

Practical info

➡️ On Tuesdays 10.00 to 10.45 at the Magical Cafe (Basel).

Prenatal yoga

Prenatal yoga is a unique practice, allowing you to mindfully connect to your baby and to marvel at the powers of your own mama-body.
Prenatal yoga also helps alleviate the common discomforts of pregnancy through sequences built specifically for second- and third-trimester accompanied by conscious breathing.
More importantly, prenatal yoga brings you back from the stress and noise of daily life to a space where you can connect with the wonder of creating and sustaining a new life within. Maybe you have a high-pressure job, or you have one or two other little ones at home… or both! This is the space to build strength and flexibility, to recover energy and also to relax and truly rest.
