What is the training about?

This training will benefit professionals working in the fields of infant health, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dance/movement therapy, yoga, somatic therapy, craniosacral therapy, somatic psychology, birth psychology, early intervention, pediatrics, post partum doula, & baby nursing to name a few.

The training focuses on work with babies from pre conception through the fetal period, and birth on up to the development of the spine, feet, nervous system, and brain. We correlate yoga poses to the developmental movement components of tummy time, side lying, rolling, creeping, crawling, sitting in vertical pushing to stand, & walking. There is a strong emphasis on infant anatomical development. We will consider fetal and birth imprints in our training and how to accommodate these along with how fetal or birth trauma can impact development in body and mind.


Theory and practice

We will have daily practice of developmental movement using ideokinesis, games, & observation. There will be daily theoretical presentations and discussions.

Sample class

There will be a sample baby class for all students
to observe.


Manual and certification

All participants will receive manuals in Czech &
receive a Certificate of Completion with full attendance and
participation in the training.
