Yoga with your baby and other Moms or Dads is a great way to get some exercise and build community. The little ones have fun, interact, dance and get a refreshing break from normal activities. It is a chance to bond with other caregivers and share some wisdom, as well.
Depending on class size there is anywhere from 10-25 mins at the end of class for talking in a sharing circle that gives caregivers the chance to voice some challenges or triumphs they are having with their baby. This can sometimes open up into a group discussion of what may have worked for others in their challenges in the past, thus creating an atmosphere where group knowledge can strengthen us all. This unique aspect of class is often the favorite part for caregivers as many of us spend a lot of time alone with our children and are missing out on the “tribe” aspect of raising them.
Many studies have shown that the happiest people are those that get six hours or more of social interaction a day, and many of us are not getting that much, so come on out and lets do some yoga, have some fun, and boost our happiness!
