Baby Yoga Version – Never to Be Tried At Home

Submitted by on January 21, 2011 – 1:37 am2 Comments




A ‘YouTube’ recording of a female from Russia, Lena Fokina swivelling a baby about her head has sparked shock & disbelief among many a viewer. One may feel the images shown are unreal, however latest details of thorough probe into the distressing recording reveal that it is true.

Tabbed as ‘baby yoga’, the recording shows what Lena dubs as ‘extreme-developmental-gymnastics’ which medically-speaking is far from the reality. Appropriate baby yoga promotes improvement in maternal-child bond, child’s motor skill development & is risk-free & pretty pleasurable for mom & infant. But, several outlines deployed in baby yoga are specific to age & involves gradual introduction of posture to growing children. Dangling the child alike rag-dolls is simply flawed. One could only envision what copycats watching the recording may deem carrying out with their little infants.

A worrisome matter is that it seems that Lena is impersonating physical activity of animals or primate species – and has applied it to human infants. Although infants have greater resilience & flexibility as compared to older human-beings, still nevertheless their skeleton make-up is rather humanly. There are restrictions in the enunciations of bodies in humans, & although stretching the body beyond boundaries is mostly possible yet it could be resulting in acute issues in the future. Also untimely forcing babies into any posture can acutely harm their innate evolution imminently.

Despite Lena when interviewed asserts that her adaptation of baby yoga revs up & improves development process – and weirdly also avers that it strengthens the infant’s hands – is just not backed by concrete evidence. The only outcomes from doing such drawn out & intense jerky movements in a baby can have a damaging effect on joint areas also leading to SBS (shaken baby syndrome).

SBS develops due to an infant being violently shaken in a manner which tends to force head in backwards & forwards movements in a single or multiple directions leading to the head being severely accelerated & decelerated.

Signs & symptoms of SBS are tetchiness, puking, seizure attacks with lasting upshots entailing disablements (physically & learning-wise), behavioural disorder, cerebral palsy, cognitive impediment & mortality. This transpires due to the brain not totally matured & develops injury easily. Also muscles of the neck still haven’t gained as much strength to be capable of supporting the head (that constitutes twenty-five per cent of the body). Hence, this information translates to the fact that while the infant is being twirled around mid-air, the neck is incapable of stabilizing head movements.

Even shoddier is the fact that any type of injury might not come to notice for several years. Mostly shaken baby syndrome is prevalently cited among under-two year old infants; however the lasting upshots might only become noticeable after they are 6 years or more in age.

Hence, all those pondering over initiating exercise earlier in their kids, following the proper manner is important & never improvising.
