Mummy & Baby Yoga
- Livia & Rachel, Yoga Retreats
Babies have experienced being rocked by their mothers through pregnancy. After birth gentle movement and touch together are the basis of synesthesia (the integration of sensory experience, the way babies unify their sensory experiences in a general way through an emotional interaction with their parents or trusted carers). The practice of baby yoga provides recourses to handle babies in ways that they enjoy and that is good for them at every stage of development. An expanding spiral of joy is created between parent and baby as babies express their delight and parents’ warm responses generate even greater delight.
Wear comfortable clothes and bring your baby carrier. If you don't have a carrier please let us know and Luxe Carriers will provide you with one for the session.
During our lovely morning of learning and self care we invite you to document your babywearing journey with a photo of your little one in front of the Malaak Angel Wings. Let Saher from Saher's Momentography create a beautiful photographic keepsake to be looked back on when they are 18 years old and too big and heavy to carry.
