Level 1 1:30-2:15PM (6 weeks - Crawling)
In these classes we work with the vestibular system exploring weight and balance in an intimate connection with the caregiver attending class with the baby. Tummy time, massage, auditory, and visual stimulation are presented in a gentle and supportive way through song, music, exercises, and play. The emphasis is on gently welcoming the baby into the physical world of the body and its growing spine, which will set up the structure for all other developmental patterns, standing upright, as well as speech. The activities support healthy growth, digestion, and sleep. Encouraging heart coherence is an emphasis throughout class for all participants. Each session includes a special baby massage and bodywork class.
Starting July 12th, the 10:15-11AM class will be canceled and the only Level 1 class we will have is the 1:30PM class.
