Learn how to wear your little one comfortably and safely!
Babywearing is a longstanding tradition in many cultures, but it has only fairly recently caught on in the US. It allows caregivers the freedom to go about their day while keeping baby (and even bigger kids) close and safe. This workshop provides an opportunity for expecting and new parents to learn the basics of babywearing.
This workshop will include:
- Safety basics for babywearing
- An introduction to different types of carriers
- Customizing the fit of a soft structured (buckle) carrier so that both you and baby are comfortable
- “What to do with all that fabric” - learning to use your stretchy or woven wrap.
We will go into further detail about all sizes of woven wraps and ring slings, as there tends to be a steeper learning curve here, and the possibilities for usage are endless!
Many of us (myself included) registered for a baby carrier without much knowledge of them, and it’s easy to get frustrated. So join me as we dive into a fun afternoon of babywearing!
*I will have a good number of demo carriers on hand, but please bring your own carrier(s), especially if you have specific questions about them. If you’re not bringing your baby, feel free to bring a (preferably floppy) stuffed animal!!
Katy is a graduate of the 4 Pillars of Freedom Teacher Training (RYT 200) and the Om Births Prenatal Teacher Training. She was introduced to yoga a decade ago to build physical strength following an injury, and through her practice discovered that she could truly strengthen her mind, body and soul by practicing yoga both on and off the mat. She brings a deep understanding of the human body and its potential, and believes that everything we need is within us NOW! She offers her students a creative and safe asana practice with an emphasis on proper alignment and the importance of finding sthira and sukha (strength and ease) when faced with a challenge.
