Yoga for Your Baby
Welcome to Evolution’s infant and baby programs. Our classes for birth to age one provide you the opportunity to mindfully connect with your little one through movement, massage, song and relaxation. Class activities increase baby’s body awareness, aid in digestion, and cultivate a more relaxed and joyful state for the baby.

Infant Yoga and Massage (6 weeks - 6 months)
Infant Yoga and Massage (6 weeks – 6 months)
is an interactive class for babies and their parents or caregivers. In this light-hearted, sweet class we introduce basic yoga poses and concepts through gentle stretches and song, as well as focus a portion of each class on infant massage.
Participants will receive lavender massage oil a few weeks into the series so that they can practice the massage at home with their babies. Please bring a thick baby blanket.
Thursdays, 12:30-1:15 pm with Susan, beginning April 3
Baby Yoga (6 Months to Crawlers)
is a laughter-filled class for babies sitting and crawling. Baby yoga builds on the foundations set in infant yoga and massage (see above), although previous participation in infant yoga is not a necessity for joining this class. We use age-appropriate props, as well as songs and games, to build coordination, strength and balance for these young yogis. As a parent, you’ll notice how instinctual yoga is to your little baby as they move into downward facing dog, star, and even tree pose!
Mondays, 9:45-10:30 am with Morgan
Postnatal: Crawlers and Toddlers
Once your baby is on the move, you can keep your yoga practice going with our new Crawlers and Toddlers class. This class is geared for mamas who want to continue their yoga practice with little ones in tow. This 50minute class is a condensed vinyasa style class for the adult focusing on abdominal strengthening and chest-opening while babies/toddlers crawl, walk, play, and socialize! The class is structured to regain strength and energy in a minimal amount of time, taking into account toddlers’ limited attention spans.
Please bring with you a blanket for your child, as well as any toys your child would be ok with sharing (if you have a “special” toy, beware – other children will want to play with it, too!). The studio will be open for you and your child to set up 10 minutes before the start of the class. Please plan on arriving within this time window for class, so that we can keep the lobby less congested. Sippy cups are fine, but please no snacks.
Tuesdays 9:40-10:30, April 1 – May 6
