Baby Yoga

As your baby gets older and becomes physically stronger, they will be ready for baby yoga. This is normally at about 10-12 weeks, just as they are showing signs of head control.

baby yogaIn a fun and lively atmosphere, with lots of laughter, you will learn moves and actions to encourage your baby to roll and then to sit up and support themselves. Many of the actions are carried out in conjunction with nursery rhymes and songs, so if you are a first time mum and your memory of these songs is rather rusty, you can learn them all over again, and maybe a few new ones too!

Do not panic, we will not be doing anything extreme like “planks” or the “tree pose”, but I will show you lots of positions and stretches to encourage your baby’s body to open out. Their body is no longer folding into a foetal position; all the muscles are now elongating and strengthening.  They are doing a lot of hard work! During this time baby yoga is particularly advantageous as it helps to build up these muscles and relieve any stiffness or aching that baby might experience.

Baby yoga will also give you the confidence to truly interact with your baby in a way that you could not have imagined. Your playtime will be more exciting and you will be helping your baby's physical and mental development.
