About the Event
Babies have a great need for communication and closeness and develop very quickly. When moving with your baby you get more of an eye for what your baby is saying with his/her body and you learn to carry him/her in a basic affirmative way. This way your baby gains more confidence in itself and in you and a secure attachment is created. You facilitate motor development with movement games and baby yoga, you learn simple songs that appeal to your baby and you dance while carrying your baby - nothing is more delightful for such a little one. A good foundation for your relationship and motor development is laid in the first year and a half; your baby will benefit from it for a lifetime! At the end of each lesson there is an opportunity to exchange experiences.

About your teacher:
Mirjam Vos is an absolute legend in the Amsterdam mama and baby world.
The connection with my body has always been self-evident and essential for me. After high school, I therefore chose to train as a dance teacher. The arrival of my daughter (1990) inspired me to devise and set up the Exercise with your baby course . After the birth of my son (1994) I immersed myself in baby massage (including Shantala) and followed the training in haptonomy. I became increasingly interested in pregnancy, childbirth and parenting and have been teaching pregnancy courses since 1995. To this end, I first followed the Pregnant and Fit training-instructor and later became a course leader Samen Bevallen, the course where I later became a teacher. I have been a certified Bowen therapist since May 2011; a complementary manual therapy in which I mainly focused on treating babies, pregnant women and mothers, but I have since stopped those activities. I have been practicing Mindfulness since 2012 . For my work as a Bowen therapist, I obtained my HBO diploma in Basic Medical Knowledge summa cum laude in 2016. In 2019 my first book Lovingly Beloved was published .
Personal contact and mutual exchange are important to me, which is why I work with small groups. To keep in touch with the practice, I am regularly present at births. I keep abreast of new insights and developments by attending further training courses and attending symposia in several disciplines. During the thirty years that I have been teaching pregnancy and baby courses, the Amsterdam Birth Center has remained my cradle and base.
Course leader Birth Center Amsterdam since 1992
