Heike Joas – First-Step Instructor, Interlaken, Thun, Bern, Basel, Switzerland

It is the wish of all parents for their child to develop properly.

With the First-Step method this goal becomes easier to reach.

What‘s important:

Your child should be able to lie comfortably on all four sides of his body and we want him to enjoy the cradling position. Lying on the tummy, rolling, rotating around his own axis, tummy crawling, crawling, sitting and standing are developmental milestones. We want them to be fulfilled in this order without missing any. I can show you how you can support your child to reach all these milestones in a fun and playful way.

NEW OFFER: Vacation with Baby

A precondition for successful learning and healthy development is that your sweetheart doesn‘t cry a lot, isn‘t afraid and has reasonable sleeping patterns. I can support you with these important issues and show you how you can have beautiful improvements in little time. You can choose whether you prefer private sessions that are especially designed acording to your child‘s developmental stage or if you want to attend group workshops together with four to five other parents and babies. The exercises are similar but done in a more playful surounding. The First-Step method is a holistic approach which works with all nervous sytems and all senses. It is based on the Feldenkrais method. If you want to learn more click here

About:Heike new

I‘m living with my husband and my 11 year old son in Sigriswil. I spent my whole childhood and teenage years in a sports club and I have been working voluntarily for more than 25 years as a sports teacher. The healthy development of children is my matter of the heart. With the First-Step method I‘m able to support children from birth on to have a life full of joyful movement. Better motoric skills result in better cognitive skills. Everything you learn correctly from the very beginning doesn‘t have to be adjusted later on. That is so much easier and makes so much sense. I‘m happy that I was given the chance to become a First-Step instructor and want to pass on my fascination to you and your child. I‘m offering private lessons and workshops in English and German.
