Level 1: 1:30-2:15PM (6 weeks – Crawling)

In these classes we work with the vestibular system exploring weight and balance in an intimate connection with the caregiver attending class with the baby. Tummy time, massage, auditory, and visual stimulation are presented in a gentle and supportive way through song, music, exercises, and play. The emphasis is on gently welcoming the baby into the physical world of the body and its growing spine, which will set up the structure for all other developmental patterns, standing upright, as well as speech. The activities support healthy growth, digestion, and sleep. Encouraging heart coherence is an emphasis throughout class for all participants. Each session includes a special baby massage and bodywork class.

Level 2 12:30-1:15PM (Crawling – 15 months)

These classes build upon the work of the classes prior adding in more challenging props to further develop a sense of balance as well as emphasizing the breath. Locomotion, rhythm, beat, and socialization are introduced in activates that use a variety of props to support the process. Vestibular work is presented in tandem exercises with the caregiver as well as with activities utilizing big balls. Yoga poses such as forward bends, backbends, side bends, and twists are introduced as well. Creepers are welcome to attend this class to help them move toward balancing on all fours and ready themselves for crawling.

For standing and cruising babies, this class continues to build upon their developmental patterns, with more articulated physical exercises including balance, falling, standing, and increased body and spatial awareness. Language is encouraged through activities that emphasize basic vocal sounds, song, and rhythmic games. Children begin to socialize more with one another and gain independence from the caregivers in playful activities that encourage cognitive thinking and spatial awareness. Yoga work begins to include supported balancing poses.
