It is important that all infants spend time awake on their stomachs (tummy time). Tummy time allows babies to strengthen and stretch muscles that are important for developing basic valuable motor skills such as crawling, standing, sitting and walking. Tummy time also facilitates visual development as your baby learns to move his/her head to look at objects and track movement. Tummy time is a wonderful and mindful play time experience for both caregiver and baby. Parents will learn the foundation in the importance of tummy time, bonding, massage, while incorporating song and play for infants. This is a wonderful way to meet like minded mindful parents looking for a Whole Child approach to parenting. This class meets in 7 weeks session, that starts the foundation for raising and supporting mindful parenting through an open discusses group and education.

Ages: Sitting and Crawling
the first year of your baby’s life, movement affects the cognitive,
emotional and physical well-being of your child and of the adult your
child will become. From the earliest stages of development in the womb,
through the birth process, to rolling, crawling and walking, children
move through a range of patterns that create their ability to sense,
perceive and act in the world. Through observation, movement, touch and
play we follow your baby’s growing curiosity and learn useful
information about natural movement patterns that encourage optimal brain
and body development classes. The class is filled with song, movement play and story time. This is a 7 week educational and community building class that meets for 1 hours.
