YOGA FOR BABIES/TODDLERS FROM 1 TO 2+ YEARS
Toddler yoga is a fun way to engage your curious baby and new toddler into activity. During the class we practice simple moves that exercise the whole of the body, improve balance, strengthen the body and encourage concentration. The class is swift, playful, active and fun. the whole room turns into one big yoga mat! It encourages also parallel play (toddlers playing on their own next to each other), relaxation and fun use of breathing techniques. Mums have a chance to practice yoga poses during toddlers’ play time.
Every Mum is a “teacher” for her own child, we sing along and encourage the toddlers to join in and repeat. During the class Mum can attend to the needs of her baby (feeding, changing a diaper).
One class is 45 minutes long.
Toddlers like routines and sometimes they need more time to get familiar with other toddlers and the environment, therefor it is recommended to commit to the practice on regular basis.
