Baby yoga is recommended for babies between 6 weeks up to 9 months
Baby yoga is based on the principles of adult yoga; breathing, stretching and relaxation. Baby yoga classes help to get babies to stretch and move and to discover their abilities and bodies.
Mums also practice gentle yoga stretches too which can help the body recover after birth. Yoga helps balance the body and mind. It can also help boost circulation and digestion, strengthen joints and muscles, and encourage the 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, coordination, 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 your baby.
A session of baby yoga stimulates all baby’s body systems and helps to integrate all of the baby’s senses. Baby yoga sessions use fun rhymes and songs to help you learn the simple movements and to help relax baby.
