Description

Baby Yoga & Milestones

Becoming a parent is one of the most rewarding (and challenging!) life experiences.  One of the most common causes for concern is often related to baby’s development and their hitting of developmental milestones.  You may ask, “What age should my baby roll over?”, “My baby doesn’t sit independently yet, should I worry?”, “Why has my baby not started to walk yet?”, “How can I help my baby with XYZ ?”

An excellent tool to help your baby meet these developmental milestones (and so many more!!) is Baby Yoga!

Baby Yoga is an adaptation of a Hatha Yoga practice that is specifically designed to help babies gain mobility and strength to reach their milestones.

Benefits for baby:

  • Helps baby develop core strength
  • Focuses on cross-lateral coordination needed for rolling, crawling, walking, and more
  • Creates muscle memory in order to reach developmental milestones
  • Improves quality and duration of sleep
  • Stimulates brain activity
  • Fun + dynamic movement
  • Stimulates digestive system
Benefits for parents:
  • Relaxing for parents
  • Helps parent learn about baby’s nonverbal communication
  • Gives parents an opportunity to learn about baby’s cues
  • Excellent opportunity to socialize with other parents
  • Boosts confidence and self esteem in new parents
  • Aids in combating postnatal anxiety and depression

In this 5 week course you will learn a variety of movements designed for your baby’s development.  There will also be some light exercise for parents too, so please make sure you come dressed appropriately.  This course is designed for babies 20+ weeks old, before they are crawling.  If your health care provider has flagged any potential developmental or health concerns for your baby (i.e. hip dysplasia, etc.) please email us directly before you book this course to ensure it is the right fit for your family.

This course will include photo opportunities and a graduation certificate that you can take home!
