Parent Toddler Yoga

Parent Toddler Yoga

What are the benefits?

    • Offers a continuation of baby yoga for mobile babies & toddlers (12 Months – 2.5 Years);
    • Supports the transition from babyhood to independence;
    • Provides a positive shared routine to carry families through what can be a challenging time as they may begin to tackle tantrums and boundary testing;
    • By engaging in physical activities together, it helps parents to maintain a close bond with their growing child;
    • Encourages self-expression through movement;
    • Promotes strength, flexibility and balance;
      • Helps children understand healthy lifestyles: there are times to be still and quiet and times to move and be active;
    • Stretch, move & relax together & enjoy a yoga community

Classes are  taught in 5-8 week rolling blocks and include:

  • A moment of calm: 10 minutes meditation for parents at the start of class
  • Toddler time: fun sequences for you and your toddler to practice together
  • Yoga for parents: some classic yoga postures and sequences
  • How to use yoga props e.g. stretching using ribbons, building roads with blocks to encourage balance co-ordination and teamwork, free movement using scarfs
  • Relaxation: how to do relaxation-time for you and your toddler

Our classes work well because:

  • Children learn in their own time
  • Your children love to see you do new activities, such as meditation, as well as rolling round on the floor with them
  • Playful moves with rhymes are a great way for children to learn yoga
  • We keep the flow but let them go: we never force children to join in; we can help them feel the stretches but then let them go; they will come back when they’re ready!
  • Children gradually memorise the sequences which internalise yoga moves
  • There is a time to focus on them and a time to focus on you, and there is time for all of it in class
