The Baby Wearing Yoga Workout

October 09, 2014 3 min read

What you will need to begin:
  • Yoga mat or beach towel
  • Open spaced  area
  • A sturdy and well made baby carrier such as a Boba, Tula, or Ergo.
  • You and your baby
Safety Rules to Always Remember:
  • Make sure that you have mastered these poses alone, first, before attempting them with your child. If you cannot maintain your balance with these poses alone, then these should not be attempted at all.
  • Go slowly.
  • Always make sure that baby's head is supported and that his face is visible.
  • Wear your baby on the front, not the back, so he will always be in your line of vision.
  • Do not go out of your comfort zone.

  1. Sit down on the floor or a Yoga Mat.
  2. Cross your legs, placing your feet below your knees.
  3. Clasp your hands around your knees.
  4. Keep your head, body straight, and eyes closed.
  5. Stay in this pose anywhere from 30 seconds to a couple of minutes (whatever is most comfortable for you), focusing on deep breathing and relaxation.

  7. Bend knee to floor and release; do 5 reps total, then switch sides and repeat.
