BABY YOGA in the Garden
Join us for some lovely and relaxed outdoor baby yoga and enjoy spending quality and nurturing time to bond with your baby.
These classes provide specially designed practices to enhance playful interaction and communication between parent and baby (from 6 weeks until crawling).
Baby yoga promotes early bonding, healthy development and wellbeing by encouraging the baby's stimulation of the senses together with movement, rhythm and relaxation as well as helping mothers with their postnatal recovery through specifically adapted yoga postures.
During the classes you will learn various stretching exercises, different holds and moves (mini twists, upper and lower body and diagonal movements etc), gentle body strokes as well as songs and rhymes, games and joint parent/baby relaxation.
Baby yoga is beneficial for all babies, you don’t need to practice yoga or even know anything about yoga to get started with your baby. It can be practiced instantly anywhere at anytime and always generates a joyful interaction.
Benefits of Baby Yoga include:
- Strenghtening of the physical body of mother and baby
