Baby Wearing and YOGA

Posted on Mar 1, 2017

  Luckily for mums across the globe, ‘wearing their babies’ in a wrap or sling has returned to be a common practice. With so many different styles and colors, any new mum or dad will find the best fit for them and baby, but why wear your baby at all? With attachment parenting becoming more mainstream, and the multiple benefits of cognitive development for babies who receive more nurturing with the touch, more and more mums are learning about the benefits of wearing your baby. In case you haven’t heard all about these benefits, check out the ones we’ve listed below. Emotional Benefits Babies that are held more, cry less. A randomized controlled test reported in Pediatrics showed that carrying babies reduces crying and fussiness 43% during the day and 51% at night. Cognitive Benefits Carried babies are primed for learning. Carrying a baby promotes cognitive development and speech development, since babies are exposed to more experiences and conversations. Physiological Benefits Touching, and therefore holding your baby stimulates her growth hormone production. Babywearing increases a baby’s circulation and promotes respiration. Babywearing helps digestion and eases colic. A baby’s tummy is massaged through the act of babywearing which also promotes bowel movement. The acupressure points that aid digestion and sleep, are located on the belly and on the lower insides of the thighs. These points are automatically massaged through baby wearing. One of the most practical benefit as a Yoga teacher I found when carrying my own baby, is to be able to work out with rather than seeing the child as an obstacle to my own fitness/ healthy lifestyle.   You can try to find a way to integrate him or her into your workouts when you can by wearing the baby/ toddler at the next Yoga Retreats class on 16th March at 136.1 Yoga Studio in Marina.   This practice is beneficial for a few reasons:  You will have more time to work out. Instead of blacking out the time when the kids are around as “no workout time,” you can add that time to an already existing exercise regimen. Exercise is good for your kids, too. Exercising with your child and throwing in a bit of play can help him or her develop motor skills from a young age. It’s great for bonding. Playing and exercising with your kids can help instill a sense of comraderie and fun. This doesn’t just go for older children, either. You...

Why breathing is a miracle.

Posted on Dec 25, 2015

Yoga changed Livia’s life since she discovered it and she also discovered with Yoga that breathing is life. It is one of our most vital functions.   In our respiration process, we breathe in or inhale oxygen into our body, going through our body systems in a form of energy to charge our different body parts. Then we exhale carbon dioxide and take away all toxic wastes from our body. Through the practice of Pranayama, the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide is attained. Absorbing prana through breath control links our body, mind, and spirit.  As life is full of stress with daily work, family, or financial pressures, we tend to ignore our breathing. Thus, it tends to be fast and shallow. The use of only a fraction of your lungs results to lack of oxygen and may lead to different complications. Heart diseases, sleep disorders, and fatigue are some of the effects of oxygen starvation. Therefore, the negative energy of being restless and troublesome leads to lesser prana inside the body. By practicing deep and systematic breathing through Pranayama, we reenergize our body.  One of the Five Principles of Yoga is Pranayama or Breathing Exercise which promotes proper breathing. In a Yogic point of view, proper breathing is to bring more oxygen to the blood and to the brain, and to control Prana or the vital life energy.  Pranayama Yoga also goes hand in hand with the Asanas. The union of these two Yogic Principles is considered as the highest form of purification and self-discipline, covering both mind and body.  Deep breathing is a very healthy exercise that you should consider practising, as it allows energies to...

The benefits of Toddler Yoga Classes

The benefits of Toddler Yoga Classes

Increasingly popular in recent years, toddler yoga has amazing results… here’s what a mum said: “It’s relaxing and a little bit of exercise for me… it’s also a good way to get him out and seeing other children, as well as a few stretches and songs for him in a happy, fun environment.” Yoga classes for moms and children incorporate music and stories, and of course teach a handful of standing and sitting poses. Not surprisingly, toddlers get a kick out of imitating familiar animals in poses like Cat and Cow. Stories, puppets, music and song all bring yoga poses to life as little ones strengthen their growing bodies. The classes explore basic anatomy, focusing techniques, and the art of sharing, in this structured and supportive class. Healthy habits begin early in life, so take a deep breath together, and discover that the “twos” are far from “terrible!” Every toddler needs an adult yoga buddy to participate. Both toddlers and adults should dress in comfortable clothing for...

The benefits of Baby Yoga Classes

Physical benefits In one session, babies receive as much physical activity as if they were handled for a few hours. The routines in the class give parents the tools to engage constructively with their babies from birth as a foundation for future regular exercise Baby Yoga promotes more and better sleep Regular movement promotes a more ‘settled’ behavior with less extreme ups and downs. Physiological / developmental benefits All the babies bodily systems are stimulated, including the digestive and nervous systems Baby Yoga offers resources to keep babies contented between feeds and helps alleviate wind and colic Baby Yoga reduces the frustration of babies in the transition of one developmental stage to another, while assisting their transitions Tactile stimulation has been shown to contribute to the development of the brain and the nervous system. Psychological benefits Baby yoga helps the parent and baby to get to know each other better through active means of communication that are easy to learn and practice New challenges introduced at a pace that babies can absorb and integrate increase their ability to cope positively with new situations Active interaction with parents is the foundation for future positive social relations over the early years and beyond Joint relaxation is mutually beneficial for parents and babies and enhances non-verbal communication between them. Early birth trauma can be resolved and healed through this loving...
