Did you enjoy your prenatal yoga class while pregnant? Or maybe you missed the opportunity to take a prenatal class? Don’t worry, you are still able to enjoy yoga with your baby in your arms, even in the early weeks and months at home with them.
Why bring baby to a yoga class? Maybe you aren't ready to leave baby at home or are looking for a fun way to interact with baby. This is a baby-led class, so whatever baby's needs are you can attend to them. As always, the studio will offer a safe space for mamas to gather to connect with each other and also bond with baby.
The sequencing of class grows with your baby. Some of the poses and movement are a new sensation and baby might not like it at first; however, as baby becomes stronger and more aware of baby’s self, he or she will fall into the flow of class naturally. It is always a joy to watch the babies grow with the class and see new milestones achieved, sometimes in class for the first time.
During class you will have the opportunity to give or receive encouragement and feedback from other mamas like yourself. We are all in different stages of motherhood and who better to ask than the mamas around you for support or shed light on baby's milestones.
BYOBaby yoga is designed for mamas and their babies 6 weeks until crawling. If you are ready to venture out and join me and other mamas every Thursday from 11am-Noon at Toula Yoga. Immediately following class will be our FREE ReGroup: Reconnect, Refresh, Renew (Noon-1pm). Stay tuned as we will have some guest visitors to discuss different topics regarding breastfeeding, baby wearing, self-care and more!
