Benefits of Baby Yoga
Through a series of movements, swings, dips and rolls, Baby Yoga helps to develop your
little ones vestibular and proprioceptive system.
The vestibular system is a sensory system responsible for providing the brain with information about motion and balance.
The proprioceptive system provides us with a sense of body awareness and detects force or pressure. It supports nervous system development and also has an important role to assist reaction to sensory stimuli.
Baby Yoga can help relief symptoms of colic and can also help to support and relieve the digestive system with issues such as constipation and trapped wind.
Baby Yoga activated the parasympathetic nervous system, this is our rest and digest response. It undoes the work of the stress hormones and the impact they have on the body.
This beautiful sequence of playful motions, connects you and your little one by promoting eye contact, developing trust from them, creates space for relaxation and fun.
