Wiggle & Giggle with Nicole

Babies and toddlers are natural yogis–they constantly live in the moment (not to mention their flexibility!). But what about their caregivers?
A baby or toddler yoga class gives caregivers the opportunity to spend time focusing on nothing but being with their child in the present moment, a truly wonderful bonding experience.

Mommy & Me Baby Yoga & Massage

 

This class provides a relaxed environment to explore yoga postures and self care techniques with your newborn infant. The hour-long class will include exercises for the child and for the adult. 

 

This is a newborn parenting class, too, so we also provide guidance for dealing with and/or preventing common repetitive stress injuries in new parents. 

 

This is a great opportunity to get the benefits of an asana (posture) practice while bonding with your child and having fun with other families!
