Mommy and baby yoga flow with Video (2/6/2015)

Now that Bella is crawling, doing yoga with her is getting a bit more challenging. It takes a lot more sound effects and interaction than it did before. She still loves Surya Namaskar A - specially when I do peek-a-boo while in downdog. But her all time favorite still is cat and dog ondulations. This practice worked well for Bella and I, but feel free to adapt it to your baby. It might be wise to use this video to take some ideas for your practice rather than try to follow it step by step as life with baby, as you must already know, can be unpredictable.

The first half is a warm up where baby is on the floor. If your baby is crawling like Bella is, it will require a high level of engagement with your child. The second half of practice is done with a soft baby carrier. Even though baby is sitting tight in the carrier, it is still important to interact with her as she may get fussy.

This practice is only 10 minutes long as babies need change often to keep them engaged. Breaking our practice into flows with and without the baby carrier is a great idea. Feel free to practice the sequence a few times during the day. Enjoy!

Namaste!
