Our fourth breathing technique for baby and toddler yoga is balloon breathing. Here's how to approach it:

Breathe in to the abdomen to expand the abdominal area whilst counting up to 15 or 20.
Next breathe out and down into the pelvic area to the same count (15-20).

This is a really lovely way to extend the breath and also focus down into the pelvic floor area, making it a great technique for pregnant mums to use during contractions/ surges.

If you'd like to learn to teach baby yoga or toddler yoga, join us on our open course dates across the UK. Alternatively we have a distance learning option for baby yoga so you can learn from the convenience of your own home or workplace (toddler yoga distance learning option due soon; email to register your interest).
