Toddler & Me Yoga – Every Friday at The Mother’hood at 10:45am & Sundays at 10:00am
Share the practice of yoga with your toddler(s) ! Toddler and Me Yoga provides an excellent space for the entire family to bond and connect while simultaneously stretching, strengthening, and relaxing your body. Through the practice of yoga, toddlers will naturally develop more inner body awareness and will enjoy having a space to creatively express themselves through movement, breath, an intention. Families will leave with tools to continue the yogic journey off of their mats including songs, seasonal verses, games, affirmations in motion, nursery rhymes, partner poses to practice at home, resting/savasana exercises, and guidance on how to start a home practice that includes the entire family. Share the practice of yoga with your toddler(s) in a fun, playful space and observe how your entire family grows and evolves. This class is tailored for crawlers to age five. Parents/caregivers practice together with their toddler(s).

Baby Led Weaning / Starting Solids – Every 2nd Friday at The Mother’hood at 12:30pm
Starting solids is good, messy, healthy fun! The science and art of starting solids for your baby is very compelling. When babies are allowed to feed themselves they are much better able to self regulate and explore foods in a safe manner. Breastmilk teaches a baby about the flavors of foods the family eats. Cultures that eat spicy foods have mothers with spicy tasting breastmilk. When babies are not forced to eat, they honor their own satiety and have less risk of over-eating later in life. Babies won’t eat anything they are not ready to consume. If they have fed themselves in a sitting up posture they will spit out what they can’t swallow. Solids don’t replace breastmilk or formula feeds until a baby is past their first birthday. By playing with foods, babies can explore texture, volume and distance. Join us in exploring this ancient introduction to first foods. $12 to drop in! Or use your 5-punch card (only $55)
