Baby Yoga – How does it help?
Baby Yoga is based on the principles of adult yoga with breathing, stretching and relaxation all included in this unique class. It is a wonderful opportunity for you to come and take some time out with your baby, learning together, relaxing together and connecting. Through a diverse program we work with babies and their parents, allowing time for both to receive the wonderful benefits yoga can provide. Our Baby Yoga classes help to get babies to stretch and move and to discover their abilities and bodies, while Parents also practice gentle yoga stretches specifically designed to help promote relaxation and ease tension and help the body recover after birth. Yoga helps balance the body and mind and can help boost circulation and digestion, strengthen joints and muscles, and encourage removal of waste and toxins in the body.
Baby Yoga is a fantastic way to support your baby’s development by improving muscle strength and tone, co ordination, and balance. It is also a wonderful way to bond with your baby and have fun together. It encourages instinctive parenting and promotes many well- used techniques for calming, soothing and reassuring baby. A session of baby yoga stimulates all baby’s body systems and helps to integrate all of baby’s senses. Baby Yoga sessions use fun rhymes and songs to help you learn the simple movements and to help relax baby.
