About the Event
BABY AQUA MOVEMENT
Water… you and maybe your partner, your child… Laughter… and learning to swim. A delightful combination!
Come and enjoy quality time with your child and let's playfully and safely explore the joys of moving in nurturing warm water.
Organic, gentle approach to learning safety and swim skills.
Focusing on the baby-infant-toddler’s level of readiness, baby swim goes beyond teaching physical skills. Safety skills: are a primary reason many people enroll in lessons. This can be lifesaving. To attend these classes, you can choose your time to come.
I’m a trained Watsu® therapist and I offer guidance into different ways of holding and supporting your child, such as back-floating with their head supported on your shoulder.
I’m also trained in Somatic Experiencing® and I can offer guidance into navigating the nervous system (NS).
As babies can’t yet regulate themselves, we need to support them to co-regulate their nervous system.
We weave relaxing and exciting activities like:
- Inviting curiosity and excitement into exploring the water in a safe and soothing environment.
- Offering safety and soothing babies through different holds such as: cuddling them in a koala hug, holding them sideways (lightly or tightly), holding them close-by.
We’ll also experience different ways of exploring safe and soothing movement in the water, such as: gentle rhythmic movement, gentle swinging, rocking or bobbing up & down like a frog, which is both fun and stimulates the ventral nervous system, moving through the water in a sideways hold, back-floating like a starfish, floating on the belly, koala hug-dancing, which regulates the nervous system through stimulating the Parasympathetic NS- singing all the while with possible eye-gazing to soothe the nervous system. This all develops and deepens the Somatic Safe Attachment Systems, and strengthens the bonding between, parent and child.
We’ll practice guided dips with verbal cue’s as well as movement cue’s and swim underwater.
A Gift for Life!
