Yoga for Babies & Toddlers

Whether you are a parent, childcare professional, yoga instructor, early intervention specialist, therapist or postpartum doula, our Yoga for Babies & Toddlers training is for you! You will gain the foundational education, tools and inspiration to offer enriching yoga-based movement, songs, games, and engaging new opportunities for parents and caregivers to bond with their little ones, OR incorporate what you learn into your current work supporting the development of babies and toddlers.

Our curriculum supports early childhood development–social, emotional, physical, and the overall contentment and comfort of babies and toddlers through play, song, and movement-based activities. Attendees will leave with an illustrated manual filled with dozens of unique yoga-inspired activities, lesson planner, sample lessons, continuing education suggestions, a list of additional resources AND free access to a baby and toddler class video library!

Yoga for Babies & Toddlers
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This training is open to any adult interested in supporting the well-being and positive development of babies and toddlers, including childcare professionals, yoga instructors wishing to offer caregiver / mommy & me style classes (a wildly popular offering at yoga studios!), child psychologists, family therapists, social workers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pediatricians, postpartum doulas, parents and others who regularly work or live with infants and toddlers.

* We love babies and toddlers, however this training is for adults only. Little ones are invited to demo classes only. Nursing moms are always welcome.

WHAT TO BRING
It is required that you bring a soft-bodied, infant-sized doll, ideally weighted in the middle. Plastic arms and legs are fine. There are many suitable brands and you may feel free to use something you already own. The following dolls are an excellent option and investment as they will serve well for demonstration purposes in your own classes:

JC Toys 20” La Baby, available in various skin tones
The My Sweet Love 20″ Soft Baby

"The Trauma-Informed Yoga and Mindfulness professional development workshop was extremely informative and engaging. The instructor did a wonderful job of balancing sharing content knowledge, discussion, and physical practice. The tools and trauma informed practices presented will be simple to bring back to my classroom and beneficial for the scholars. The workshop provides both specific strategies and a trauma-informed lens to view your current practices through. I highly recommend attending!
