A calming experience for the parent/caregiver and baby alike. Learn techniques for soothing and bonding with your baby through massage while stretching and breathing to keep yourself centered. Baby massage is known to help digestion as well as sleep and neural development. As babies get older elements of yoga are introduced. Parents have opportunities to discuss standard issues of feeding, sleeping, crying, sibling rivalry and relationships. Bring a receiving blanket and get ready to kick off those shoes. Instructor, Jenny Fleming, has been teaching pre-natal/post-natal yoga at the JCC for the last 10 years. She has been trained in Iyengar yoga and is also a licensed Massage therapist and registered nurse.
