Controversial Baby Dynamics Yoga - YouTube

What do you think of that video, a good thing to do, abuse, crazy?

That's not yoga! That's just crazy! I think we may have debated this same lady before with a different video (doing basically the same thing). I can't believe anyone would hand over their child to her.

Just make sure you feed the baby real good before you hand him/her over...
What benefit could this possibly have?

Chick is on crack.

Not baby yoga, not even yoga. You're supposed to use relaxation techniques with yoga. Yoga should not used for speeding up the onset of anxiety issues(in fact, yoga is often used to HELP people with anxiety, lol). Those poor babies are scared ****less.
What she's doing is more than slightly dangerous. I can't believe idiots would trust her with their infants after watching her. That's just as scary.

I remember her last video. I think she is insane and I can't imagine what kind of person would let her do that to their child.

The second baby looks like it is screaming it's head off (my sound's off and I don't want to watch it a second time)

I cannot help but think that pulling on baby arm joints like that is a good idea at all. Nor flinging them around and letting their heads wobble!

I agree with all of you. This is NOT yoga. The one baby seems to be distressed, it's crying. Just because this lady is wearing yogaish type pants doesn't make flipping a baby around yoga.

I remember her other video also. The woman is nuts. That poor baby may end up with serious joint issues.

I don't believe in any type of baby yoga or baby chiropractic treatments.

I have to be honest, when I first saw the title (before I viewed the video) I thought this was going to be about what would actually be baby yoga, and my mind jumped to baby chiropractic too. I don't agree with any of that stuff either. Then again anything to make a quick buck off a brand new baby right?

I agree with baby chiropractic treatments. We had that done when ds2 was an infant because he was laying in the womb in a awkward position which made it hard for him to nurse on his left side. He needed to be adjusted. Prior to the adjustment he would not nurse on the left side, he would cry and pull away (it was hurting his back and neck). After the adjustment he nursed on the left side right away with no problems. I'm not sure why some people feel it's a scam (I've heard of that a lot).

Yoga is about relaxation, I use to do it a lot with ds1 and in pregnancy with ds2. For me I feel it was worth it (I didn't do classes or anything, just at home) and I believe it really helped me in labor with ds2. Different strokes for different folks.

I to have seen how beneficial baby chiropractic can be... it is most definitely something I will look into if we feel any future children need it. DH and I need it, so why not the little being who was smushed into a ball for several months with no real way to stretch.

I only believe in baby massaging. It's something I have always done since Jace was a newborn even before I knew of the benefits. The kid is obsessed with massages now, from his feet all the way to his face, lol!

I've just come across way too my chiros claiming they can practically cure asthma and allergies in people by doing adjustments.

Hell just freaking froze, because I totally agree with you on this.
I personally have been told by a chiro that if I would get adjusted more I would no longer need my antidepressant.
One year right around the time for DD#1's birthday party DH got H1N1. So I had to call parents and tell them DH had been sick recently and that we Lysoled everything (DH was better by party time) but I wanted to give everyone a heads up just in case someone was a high risk for flu. One mom actually said to me "oh I'm not worried about that. We don't vaccinate because we all see a chiropractor."
I don't know if this is a regional thing or what, but I've seen 3 chiros here and they've all made big promises for me, and everyone I know in person that believes in getting regular adjustments seem to believe they'll never be sick or in pain for the rest of their life as long as they keep getting adjusted.
Something just doesn't add up for me.

As for actual baby yoga, some of that I don't mind. There are poses to get babies into to help with constipation and so on. I don't know why a baby would need to do regular daily yoga though, they're already as flexible as they can get. I guess as long as they aren't getting whiplash or their joints ripped out of socket it's probably Ok even if it's not necessary.

Wow!

You'll also never hear the word "cured" come out of a chiro's mouth or have a chiro release patients because they no longer need treatment.

Now would I ever go to one? Sure, I love cracking my back and neck and if I can get someone else to do it then that's awesome. Do I believe that they can improve a condition of mine? Possibly, but only temporarily. Asthma, allergies, depression, or anything else of the like... Hell no!
