Baby Yoga is great fun, will give you more confidence in handling your baby and once youâ€™ve learnt the exercises you will be able to use them at home to continue the bonding and soothing. In one short session a baby experiences as much physical activity as they would receive if they were handled and carried all day which should help them sleep for longer (no promises!!!)
Baby Yoga is NOT a series of static poses and meditations!!! The classes work through a series of simple movements and stretches designed according to the babyâ€™s age and natural development. Many of the sequences are combined with simple rhymes or songs.
Postnatal postures are used to help re-align and strengthen Mumâ€™s body, tone abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and also balance the hormonal changes that occur after childbirth. It can also help with postnatal depression. Most importantly, the deep relaxation session at the end of the baby yoga session helps mum cope with the stress of parenting.
Even if youâ€™ve never practiced yoga yourself before, there are some deep breathing techniques you will learn during the classes that will help you relax, de-stress and hopefully sleep better.
