Toddler Yoga Short Course

Toddler Yoga offers a structured base for parents to exercise and have fun with their children, promoting strength, flexibility, balance and relaxation to contrast with energetic activity. It enhances physical wellbeing and stimulates language, listening and developmental skills, but also nourishes the spirit and strengthens family bonds. During the transition to independent movement when toddlers’ physical contact with their parents is often diminished, toddler yoga supports loving and playful contact and provides a positive shared experience to carry young families through what can be a challenging time as they tackle tantrums and boundary testing. Parents are re-connected with their own inner child, their creativity and intuition.
