Yoga is a family affair here at Kalma Baby check out why our dads yoga is so brilliant!
Nothing screams I love you from you and bubs than a dads yoga voucher, for baby yoga or baby massage as a gift! We have the perfect gift you can give your baby daddy this year. Kalma Baby is giving daddies all over a chance to attend a class led by our great teachers which is just for dads! Our childrens yoga yoga classes give the same incredible benefits as a regular Kalma baby yoga class, however a dads only gives our daddies some extra special benefits which we want them to hear about!
An Australian study of infant massage and father-baby bonding, found that at 12 weeks old, babies who were massaged (by their fathers) greeted their fathers with more eye contact, smiling, vocalising and touch than those in the control group, and the fathers experienced improved self-esteem as a parent due to the increased involvement. One of the many benefits to attending our baby massage or baby yoga classes is the confidence it gives dads to parent. The even learn few new songs to take home! A piece published by the Journal perinatal education suggests infant massage may be an effective way to decrease stress related to feelings of competence, isolation, attachment, personal health, feelings of depression, spousal support, and role restriction.
“As they learn to soothe their babies, fathers notice their own stress levels are lessened. Together, they experience the calming power of touch, and begin to build life-long attachments,” (Tiffany Field, PhD, Director of Touch Research Institutes at the University of Miami School of Medicine, and co-author of a survey on father-infant massage)
Our classes can help support the bonding between father and child particularly with those who may miss out of parts of their little ones life due to working commitments. Our baby yoga classes give dads the chance to get physical with their little ones we mean this is a positive way! Our daddies swing a little a higher and sing a little louder in classes. Our dad only sessions create a brilliant opportunity for those dads unsure of coming along to a regular class, to come and try a class with other dads. Making new friends and giving them the chance to spend that father child time just one on one.
A special shout out to all the dads who attend childrens yoga classes for more information visit www.kalmababy.co.uk
