What is Baby Yoga
Baby yoga encourages pre-verbal communication and enhances baby's physical confidence. Yoga exercises are intertwined with songs and fun activities, and new mums will be able to work on postnatal exercises. Learn how to stimulate your baby's mental and physical abilities using gentle movements and rhythm. Learn how to settle colic, help induce sleep and gain confidence in handling your baby.

Baby yoga, which complements infant massage, offers quality physical stimulation including flowing postures, holding, movement, touch, voice and deep relaxation. It induces a happy, carefree and lively parent-infant interaction, which develops as the baby grows.

The experience of movement combined with touch is probably the richest stimulation we can offer babies from birth. In yoga, this stimulation occurs through the mutual involvement of parent and baby, at a pace at which the baby can absorb and integrate it. As yoga postures induce deep relaxation in adults, so in babies they bring a state of deep contentment and promote deep sleep. Yoga offers babies a resource that will enable them to deal positively with stress and know how to relax. Our handling of babies is a loving one, in which the conversion of a challenging movement into a safe game, to play and enjoy, is repeated again and again. This playful stimulation through yoga-based exercise is the best possible way of helping babies relish life, with all its demands, as they grow.

The Benefits of Baby Yoga

Physical
• In one short session, the baby is given as much physical activity as they would receive if they were handled and carried all day. This activity will help the baby sleep more deeply
• The baby's behaviour will be more 'settled'
• It provides a daily routine of activity through which the parent can engage constructively with their baby from birth

Developmental
• All the baby's bodily systems are stimulated, including the digestive and nervous systems

Psychological
• Baby yoga helps the parent and baby to get to know each other, enhancing communication between them
• Yoga helps to heal any birth trauma; the baby will also be better equipped to deal with shocks
• The baby's enjoyment of the positive stress of yoga will increase the babies ability to cope with future challenges
• Through the high quality attention the baby receives from its parents, the baby learns to interact with others and play actively, the deep relaxation that is part of yoga helps parents cope with the stresses of early parenting
