During my Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga training in San Francisco last March, we briefly discussed how to incorporate teaching infant massage in our ‘Baby and Me’ postnatal yoga classes.  This class format provides a perfect opportunity to transfer our attention from mommy (or daddy’s) yoga practice-where the baby is watching or being held in a pose -to where it is all about the baby and the parent is able to connect to their new born babe.  I was inspired to read Infant Massage by Vimala McClure after learning that my friend Liz was taking an infant massage course.  So far, this book has taught me that infant massage is not for releasing tension in the babies (although it is relaxing for them) it’s more for bonding, circulation and toning their internal organs.  Infant massage has been around for centuries but in our busy, fast-paced, technologically based society we need reminders on how to slow down, relax and bond with our little ones.
