Baby & Me Yoga (pre-crawlers)


This class is taught by:

Kerri Gawreluk

It was an innate curiosity plus a dash of on-the-job stress that led Kerri to her first yoga class many moons ago. Once through the door, it was love at first asana. Kerri credits her yoga practice with helping her open up to gratitude a little more, beat herself up a little less, and become more authentic in her teaching, relationships, and life in general. She is a certified yoga teacher in the ISHTA tradition as well as a Reiki master, and her classes are a creative, richly layered mix of movement and meditation that nurture the body and soul on many levels. She holds a separate certification in Prenatal yoga and has a passion and affinity for sharing yoga with families and kids of all ages. With equal parts whole-heartedness, humility and humor, Kerri's intention, as a teacher and fellow student, is to do her best to make sure everyone who crosses her path feels seen and supported, exactly where they are.

Nicole Metchick

Nicole is a certified yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance (RYTs), and she has also taught Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga for several years following a Yale-affiliated Dancing Thru Pregnancy program. Nicole teaches a rhythmic and sometimes vigorous Vinyasa style class that emphasizes the importance of fluid movement linked closely to pranayama (breath awareness). Nicole’s creative sequencing and intelligent alignment, encourages physical stability, increases flexibility, and enhances the body’s natural detoxification process. Nicole has a technical approach to the postures, affirming one’s commitment to practice and offering a mindful approach to living that is evident both on and off the mat. Her distinctive style synchronizes breath with movement which she believes brings the transformative qualities of yoga and healthful living to the forefront. Over the past 14 years, Nicole’s teaching experience contains a broad range of class and student types including prenatal, postnatal, youth, adult and seniors. She is also a student herself and enjoys taking classes with new teachers and styles for personal enjoyment and to expand her own perspectives.
This class is for new caregivers and their babies 6 weeks of age or older, who are not yet crawling.
 
Stretch, bond, and breathe with your baby in this special yoga class designed for caregivers (mothers, fathers, adult relatives!) and their babies . Babies are natural yogis! Each class explores gentle yoga and massage techniques for babies which help aid in digestion, gas and colic relief, improved sleep patterns, and add in the development of fine and gross motor skills.  We also incorporate partner poses and playful songs to help create a casual, comfortable bonding environment. Dress comfortably and bring a receiving blanket for your little one.
