Yoga for Mother and Baby: Interactive Poses for You and Your Baby (0-3 Years Old)
Yoga is beneficial to everyone, and with today's emphasis on a healthy lifestyle, what could be better than carrying out simple yoga exercises with your baby? In this book, Franoise Barbira Freedman offers simple stretches, poses, and massages that will help your flexibility and suppleness, as well as nurture the bond between you and your baby. With basic postnatal stretches and routines you can do with children from 0 to 3 years old, there are exercises for all stages of early parenthood. The stretches have been designed to calm the mind and increase alertness, but not put strain on any part of the body. If you already practice yoga, suggestions are offered on adapting classic poses to include your baby. Also included are exercises for special babies with particular combinations of motor skills. The exercises aren't just aimed at mothers--fathers and grandparents are encouraged to take part as well, and no previous experience is required.
* Build a strong bond in a natural way between you and your baby that will continue into childhood.
