Babywearing yoga unites parent and child through the use of a carrier allowing them to experience a yoga class together. The class will guide parents through breathing exercises to help reduce stress and tension in the body, yoga poses that support the muscles of babywearing and pelvic floor health, and guided meditation that encourages mindful parenting and emotional parent/child connection. Students are encouraged to practice with special attention to their physical ability (specifically post-partum moms) and their child’s developmental needs (holding head when necessary, etc).
Class will be tailored to pre-walkers but is open to children up to 2 years old. Children do not have to remain in the carrier for the entire class; however, they should be comfortable being worn in the carrier. Parents should wear their child in a carrier and bring a mat, bottle of water, and any feeding/changing materials needed during class. A small blanket for the baby is suggested for lying on the mat. Parents are encouraged to feed, change, and take a break with their child as needed during class time.
Carrier suggestions: parents should be able to lift both hands over head with baby in carrier to be comfortable in this class; children should be worn in a safe position with open airwary in a damage-free carrier.
