Number of days: 2 days

Brief course description

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.

Prerequisite

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.

Qualification

On successful completion of the Level 2 practical assessment and coursework, Level 1 certified teachers obtain the qualification of Certified Birthlight Teacher in Baby Yoga Level 2. Teachers can go deeper in their knowledge and get a Birthlight Baby Yoga Diploma qualification by completing the additional coursework (a long question, worksheet and a Book / DVD review).
