Relaxation at Home, Beauty and Holistic Therapy

Eileen Wood Baby Yoga

Baby yoga is a centuries old tradition which can help give a child the best possible start in life, health, happiness, security and a feeling of being loved. The benefits of Baby Yoga for both mother and baby are significant, impressive and undisputed and are widely endorsed by medical practitioners across the world. Whilst it may sound too good to be true Baby Yoga could be the key to a happy, healthy and secure baby.

The style of baby yoga taught is based on Hatha yoga – the union of balance of body and mind. We also incorporate dry massage, soft stretches and gentle movements making this appropriate for babies, ensuring it’s a fun and rewarding experience for both parent and baby.

Baby yoga has similar benefits to that of baby massage, including:

relief of ailments such as colic, reflux, constipation and wind

stimulation of the digestive system, circulatory system and brain

relaxing and calming for both baby and yourself

improve sleep patterns

further develop bonding, communication and social interaction

Yoga helps blockages of tension in the body. Tension can block the flow of energy and cause the body to tighten and become painful. For example, a colicky baby may have tension in the digestive system. Baby yoga can help relieve this.  Practicing baby yoga may have many benefits for babies. Here are just a few of the benefits you may see.

Aids in strengthening the spine

Improves muscle tone

Imparts flexibility of the joints

Improves breathing and oxygen intake

Improves balance and co-ordination

Develops physical confidence and body awareness

Calms and relaxes both mother and baby

Improves relaxation and encouraging sleep for longer

Classes can be taken from around 6-8 weeks old after baby has had their 6-week check but is a great follow on from baby massage classes.
