"Is your little one getting their recommended 180 minutes a day" - Chief Medical Officer
Both our minimovez fitness & dance classes, and our minimovez preschool yoga classes are perfect for introducing your child to exercise in a fun and imaginative way. Please allow around 60 minutes per class.
Minimovez fitness & dance classes
Suitable for all toddlers & pre-school children from around 18 months of age, each session is carefully designed to get little ones moving and so much more! Watch their creativity, confidence, physical and social skills develop week after week, and build a solid foundation for an active life.
At this age familiarity and routine is key to building confidence, so our classes follow a simple structure which is aligned with the EYFS framework:
- A warm up song and stretches
- Movement songs
- Active games
- Simple dance routines
- Water/snack break
- Cool down and stretches
- Positive feedback & minimovez hand stamp
Minimovez preschool yoga classes
Suitable for pre-school aged children from around 2.5 yrs+, these parent & child classes offer a fun and stimulating introduction to yoga for little ones. Using stories, props and music, we will go on an adventure every week, learning lots about ourselves – and our bodies – on the way!
- A warm up song and yoga stretches
- A new yoga adventure every half term
- A new yoga pose added every week
- Yoga inspired action song
- Relaxation and mindfulness
- Positive feedback & a minimovez hand stamp
- A stay and play time after the structured class
Our fully accredited 30 minute group sessions help child care providers to meet the requirements of the EYFS Framework and contribute to meeting the recommended 180 minutes of physical activity per day for pre-school aged children (Chief Medical Officer). We can work with you to complement the themes and activities you are developing with the children.
We use a variety of colourful and sensory equipment (pom poms, ribbons, bean bags, tunnels, hoops, balls etc) and cool music to help keep children engaged throughout the sessions. And it’s not just the little ones, grown ups love it too! We encourage parents, grandparents and other carers to join in the session as much as possible. Enjoying physical activity together is a great way to spend quality time with your little one, having fun and making friends. We also take song requests and younger siblings are always welcome.

Thank you for all of your hard work Steph – we’ve all really enjoyed coming to Minimovez and my son has really come out of his shell. XLizzy
My daughter and I have been attending the Minimovez Classes for just over a year. We have really enjoyed the sessions and would highly recommend them. Steph is very friendly and enthusiastic. She really engages the children and gets them all involved. I would recommend this class to anyone.Lucy
Attended our first session this week and it was brilliant. I was unsure how nervous my daughter would be but Steph was great at making her feel at ease and she had great fun. She’s already asked when we are going again! Will definitely be back.Hannah
My very nearly 2yr old girl has been going for a few weeks now, and we absolutely love it! I love that she’s learning to listen and follow instructions, her fine and gross motor skills are being used, and learning to take turns and sharing. Plus, it’s so much fun (not only for the little ones- I love it too). She’s so excited to come every week. I tell everyone that will listen how fab this class is. XAlex
We absolutely love minimovez, we’ve been going since my little boy was 18 months, he’s now 2.5. I was worried how he might fit in with others after lockdown.
Steph is so welcoming, Stan is allowed to do his own thing without judgement and slowly has come out of his shell and learned to join in . And now my 8 month old Elsie loves it too!Laura
We had minimovez visit our childminding setting weekly over the last year and the children loved every minute. Steph made an extra special effort to get to know each of them and tailored the classes to what they enjoyed. It was so much fun and loved by all!Hannah - Childcare Adventures
