Baby and Me Yoga
Baby and Me Yoga classes at Learning Lab are designed to enhance the bond between mother and infant through movement and breath. Babies are natural yogis and will develop their gross and fine motor skills through poses. Accommodations are made to challenge babies on the move, as well as encourage younger babies’ skills to develop. The group setting will support socialization, language, and cognitive and emotional development. Yoga relieves stress for both mother and infant, calming the mind and relaxing the body. Through this 45 minute class, we will work together to address postpartum concerns,create a safe space to move openly, and develop a sense of community. We will learn to re-strengthen our core, pelvic floor muscles and alleviate tension in the back, neck, and shoulders. Babies will also be introduced to seeing other children and create a sense of body awareness. The goal of this class is to start to create healthy habits that are easy to maintain and will last a lifetime. Babies should have developed head control already, and mom should be medically cleared for physical activity by her doctor. Mothers are fully participatory and present through the session.
*Suggested age range: 3-18 months
