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.
