Practicing yoga with your little one can be unstructured, loud, and constantly interrupted, but it’s still a wonderful way to move your body, find body-mind balance, and connect within. Matea shares her tips on how to keep your baby close and entertained while you move through your yoga poses, creating a fun and relaxing experience for both of you:

  1. Create a safe and comfortable space for your baby to play while you practice.
  2. Be flexible and adapt your practice to your baby’s needs and moods.
  3. Use props, toys, or books to keep your little one engaged.
  4. Include interactive poses that involve your baby, such as holding them during a lunge or incorporating them into a gentle twist.
  5. Be patient and gentle with yourself, accepting that your practice may not always go as planned.

Laughter, Learning, and Love: The Heart of Yoga with Baby

Incorporate laughter and learning into your yoga practice while maintaining a peaceful and calming atmosphere for your baby to explore and play. Embrace the change, allowing your practice to be unstructured and free, while still reaping the benefits of yoga.

By fostering a loving and playful environment, you’ll create positive associations with yoga for your child, laying the foundation for a lifelong appreciation of wellness and mindfulness. Practicing yoga with your little one is an opportunity to model healthy habits, nurture emotional bonds, and cultivate inner peace for both you and your child.

Prior Knowledge and Personal Practice: Adapting Yoga for Parenting

Having prior knowledge of yoga and a steady personal practice is a benefit, as it allows you to intuitively adapt your sequence to your baby’s needs. If you’re less experienced or confident in creating your own practice, following a guided class with your baby by your side is still possible and rewarding.
