Baby Yoga provides the stimulation of touch, movement and rhythm, as well as the benefits of deep relaxation.
The series of sequences encourage flexibility and bring back harmony to the body systems. Each movement supports the baby’s individual development strengthening the physical body and maintaining flexibility.
Tactile stimulation contributes to the development of the brain and the nervous system. Baby Yoga can help to settle babies and to improve sleep patterns. The movements and massage will aid digestion and give relief to colicky babies.
The Yoga course is run in 5 week sessions for babies from 12 weeks to crawling. Classes include Baby Yoga and Massage for overall strengthening and development. There is a balance of stretching and relaxing sequences. Songs and Rhymes are coordinated with some of the movements.
The classes include yoga for parents promoting in depth toning of stomach, pelvic and back muscles through postures that can also be done at home with babies.
Each class finishes with a joint relaxation for parent and baby.
At the end of the session we have refreshments, which provide an opportunity for parents to get to know each other and to discuss issues such as feeding, sleeping, crying, teething and weaning. All you will need to bring for baby is their usual drinks, changing needs and a towel or blanket for them to lie on. Parents are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes such as track suit bottoms/t shirts.
