Explore how yoga can strengthen the bond between caregiver and child, helping babies improve coordination, sleep better, and fuss less.
Babies will practice on backs, tummies, or in your caring embrace. Although most of the class will be focused on the littles- caregivers will utilize gentle stretching, breathing exercises, and guided relaxation techniques to help manage the day-to-day challenges of infant care and postpartum life.
This series provides a unique opportunity to meet other families, get support, and learn about baby’s developing personality. Each caregiver will take home a handout, featuring the baby sequence taught that day, as we discuss how to build a yoga “home practice” for babies and the grown-ups who love them.
“EAT” (April 28) Find comfort and ease while feeding and explore gentle yoga postures to invite strength and alignment for caregivers during infant care. With baby, learn simple techniques to promote healthy digestion and elimination.
“PLAY” (May 19) Use gentle stretches to help babies improve coordination and enhance their personal growth. In this spirited and lively class, we’ll support each baby’s individual development, and celebrate the joy of each milestone!
“LOVE” (June 23) Utilizing song and infant massage, we’ll connect with babies, helping them feel loved and cared for as we send them off to sweet slumber. Even though baby might not be ready to nap – we’ll create a nurturing atmosphere where both babies and grown-ups alike can take a “pause” from the everyday.
These classes are for infants 6 weeks until almost crawling, accompanied by an adult. Please bring a receiving blanket. No prior yoga experience needed. To ensure an intimate class experience, we ask that caregivers refrain from bringing siblings outside of the age range.
