New Form of Yoga for Babies

Yoga helps infants as young as a few days old to 12 months to improve bodily systems, says expert. A workshop organised by the Pampers Mommy and Baby Sleep Academy in Dubai, certified baby yoga guru Odona Farska of the Flow Yoga Dubai Studio took the infants and their mothers through a series of gentle movements that are proven to benefit them physically, physiologically and psychologically.

"Baby yoga helps stimulate bodily systems like the digestive and nervous systems, besides ensure sufficient physical activity for a baby. It helps the child sleep well and heal birth traumas. It is also a bonding time for the mother and child and ensures they are happier," Gulf News quoted Farska, who mastered the art of baby yoga in London, as saying.

She said a typical baby yoga session spans 10-15 minutes for 3-6 month-olds and 20-30 minutes for 6-12-month-olds.

It covers all features of classic yoga, right from the warm-up to the stretching, postures and movements so that the vital organs are stimulated, the muscles toned and the mind and body relaxed.

By extension, baby yoga is said to influence interaction with the child in every aspect, be it the manner in which he or she is lifted, carried, sat down or walked around.
