THIS CLASS IS CHANGING TO "FAMILY YOGA" ON MONDAY JUNE 5TH! BABIES & CHILDREN OF ALL AGES ARE WELCOME TO JOIN!
PLEASE REGISTER ON OUR WEBSITE FOR FAMILY YOGA!
What are the benefits of yoga with my baby?
This class emphasizes developing core strength (abdominal and back muscles); relieving tension in the neck, shoulders and back; and regaining stability and flexibility. Breathing and relaxation techniques transfer outside the yoga studio to help with everyday stress. Movement for baby increases body awareness and helps prepare for developmental milestones while bonding with mommy.
What age group is appropriate for the class?
Six-weeks to one year. Mom must be cleared by her doctor to begin exercising before beginning classes if less than 6 weeks postpartum.
Remember if you have a crawler or walking little one that you bring toys for them to play with when you are relaxing or doing positions that they are not a part of.
What should I expect?
A combination of yoga for Mom, “yoga” for baby (movement, tummy time, play, etc.) and bonding between the two. The intensity of the practice will be
tailored for moms at all stages of post-partum and for babies at different developmental levels. No experience is necessary.
What if my baby cries?
There is no set expectation for how babies will “behave”. Babies are unpredictable! Some may sleep during the whole class; others may be very stimulated. Moms can move in and out of the practice and make adjustments to meet their child’s needs throughout the class. Pausing for a diaper change or to feed or soothe baby is welcome.
What should I bring?
A blanket for baby
Optional: small toy for baby
Classes meet at 11 am on Monday
Everyone/anyone is "allowed" to participate in this class with baby/child....it's not limited to moms :) We welcome dads, grandparents, babysitters, aunts, uncles, nannies, etc...
We do allow drop-ins for this class HOWEVER we ask that you please try to pre-register. This allows us to set up ahead of time. Also, we may need to turn away drop-ins if a particular class becomes too full. We understand it may be difficult to register with a small baby, so even registering the morning of class is helpful. You can easily register here on our website or by calling the store during business hours. Thanks!
