Mommy and her little yoga partner: Who will perform better yoga than a baby? If we observe closely all those yoga poses that Yogi’s perform can be seen in baby’s movements.
If mother and baby together practice yoga it helps both mother and baby. It offers many benefits including physical, emotional and social benefit. When baby is with mother while practicing yoga, it will increase the bonding between both. Both will experience happiness and togetherness.
While watching mother babies will start mimicking mother and infant’s body will get into poses from the beginning. It gives flexibility and strength to body at young age. When both practice yoga together it promotes a sense of security, happiness in babies and feel emotionally as well as physically safe. It helps mothers to connect with babies spiritually.
When mothers make yoga practice a routine, babies observe and as they grow their interest towards yoga or any exercises grows and taking care of health becomes priority in life. Yoga teaches values, mindfulness, helps to concentrate, to be kind, helps body to be flexible and practicing yoga gives overall benefit for our body and mind.
Child pose helps mothers to be much closer to baby. You will mimic baby here. Whenever you feel tired and exhausted you can do this pose while baby is next to you. Let baby lie comfortable on her back. Sit in front of baby on your heels and lower your torso between thighs. Let head touch baby’s belly gently! Without putting weight on baby slowly turn your head to see baby’s face and on both sides. Release your shoulder on floor or put your hands next to baby. Baby will breath your scent and will feel secured.
