Baby Yoga Level 2 03 Dec 2018 – 04 Dec 2018
This is a two-day intensive course, open to Certified Birthlight Baby Yoga Teachers Level 1. Applications by Baby Yoga or Mother and Baby Yoga teachers trained in other organisations will be considered case by case.
The special focus of this course is on mobile babies (9-18 months) and the dynamics of parent-baby pairs in baby yoga classes.
This course includes birthlight yoga based movements that facilitate transitions to sitting, crawling, standing and walking. Additional resources are offered for teaching mobile babies from 9 to 18 months. The course also includes further knowledge on babies’ brain development and particularly on the importance of correct stimulation of the vestibular system. A deeper understanding of affect regulation is presented to highlight the potential contribution that baby yoga can make to enhance or repair affective communication between parents and babies through playful interaction. Additional techniques for teaching joint relaxation for parent and baby together are taught to help release parental tension.
This course offers an array of teaching resources to facilitate the teaching of pre-mobile and mobile babies together in classes where all have a good time as well as enjoying developmental and health benefits. No additional coursework is required.
How is this course assessed? This course is tutor assessed by means of a practical at the end of the course.
