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 movement.
