Toddlers & Yoga

Every day before nap/bed, R and I practice yoga. We have all heard of the benefits of yoga for adults, and even children- but what about yoga for babies and toddlers?
"When presented in a child's language, yoga can help counter the stress experienced by young people living in a hurry-up world."
-Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's noncompetitive
-Enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness
-Deepen the nanny or parent/child bond
-Help baby/toddler sleep longer and better
-Improve baby’s digestion and ease tummy troubles
-Relieve fussiness and colic
-Discover ways to enhance your baby’s motor development
-Strengthen the immune system
-Encourage neuromuscular development
-Concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves.
-Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them.
"Children will jump at the chance to assume the role of animals, trees, flowers, warriors. Your role is to step back and allow them to bark in the dog pose, hiss in the cobra, and meow in cat stretch. They can also recite the ABCs or 123s as they are holding poses. Sound is a great release for children and adds an auditory dimension to the physical experience of yoga." -Marsha Wenig
After R and I read 3 stories, she prompty sits criss-cross-applesauce, hands in prayer position, and says "Om". We like to use Yoga Cards- she picks 5, and we do them together, remembering to practice our deep breathing! We finish with listing three things we are grateful for. At 2.5 years old, R now lists everything from her new baby brother, to the rain, to having legs!

Usually yoga includes some form of breathing technique and possibly a meditation technique as well. Some yoga classes are designed purely for relaxation.

I think the best thing to do is always involve your child in taking care of your baby. Don't give your first child a feeling of competition of your attention between him and your new baby.

of course like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.
