You just had a baby and probably wondering what baby yoga is all about, is worth attending a class with your little one or is it just another “thing” to do with a fancy name slapped on it? Perhaps you’ve never even heard of Yoga before and think it’s some sort of weird religion or cult?


The word Yoga originates from ancient India, it’s a sanskrit word translated as the union between the self and the spirit. It’s an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.
