Some common questions asked about our yoga classes

  1. What happens if my baby either sleeps through the class or cries during the class?
    If your baby sleeps through the class this just allows you to give more attention to your own movements and experience. Also, it is normal and expected that your (and every other) baby may fuss or cry at some point during the class. Indeed, part of the experience of mom and baby yoga is to learn how you can better relax during your baby’s normal fussing and fidgeting. The truth is, your baby’s (and others’) crying is a welcome opportunity for moms to practice calmness and focus.
  2. What should I wear? What do I need to bring?
    You should wear clothing that is easy to move in, such as loose fitting sweat pants, leggings, t-shirts, sweaters, etc. It also helps to dress in layers so that you can easily stay comfortable at any level of exertion. It is also a good idea to bring a blanket to make your space comfortable and familiar for you and your baby. Please bring some bottled water and whatever your child may need over the course of the session (e.g. juice, diapers, etc). Yoga mats will be provided.
  3. How large are the classes?
    Our mom and baby yoga classes usually consist of three to five moms and their babies.
