The style of yoga that Lullaby Lucy teaches is based on Hatha yoga. Babies can develop through routines and postures, where you are taught to help your baby into carefully developed movements that are beneficial to both growth and development. Baby yoga can aid the babyâ€™s gross and fine motor skills, helping them balance and guide them into developmental milestones. The moves have been designed to support your baby in their learning about diagonal coordination which is required for crawling and walking. Baby yoga is an effective trust building activity between you and your baby as some of the poses are specifically designed to stimulate the moro reflex. Baby yoga is an interactive routine, but still very relaxing with activities focusing on core breathing and contentment poses.
