Your monkey belongs in a zoo? Try Yoga Zoo
My baby accompanied me to yoga class for five months while he was a floating foetus and once he was free of his water world, his privilege of being allowed into Dr. Mohan’s Ashtang yoga class was revoked. I know he benefited from those prenatal breathing, stretching and meditating sessions. Am almost sure he recognised the yoga instructor’s voice in the delivery room – the anaesthetist and yoga guru being the same person.
So a mama-toddler yoga orientation class was too good to pass up. Jasmeet Kaur and Mini Singh of Yogazoo, conduct classes once a week for kids aged 2 to 14.
The instructors wear trendy looking kurta, pyjamas and have a natural flair with kids.
After the Yogazoo prayer, the rhymes and songs are turned on while the instructor directs mama and baby into fun poses with names like Lazy Rabbit, Dancing Duo and Peanut-Butter-Jelly. Each pose involves stretching and breathing techniques used in traditional yoga but taught here in a play way with a lot of physical interaction, hugs and laughs. My two year old was a little too young for this class but we had fun anyway and it gave me ideas on how I could teach him a few asanas at home.
The premise of Yogazoo is to assist youngsters in spending happy time with themselves, help in concentration and counter stress. In today’s world where children have a constant need for activity and sensory bombardment, Yogazoo provides a unique alternative.
