Yoga Cubs

Navigate the early stages of motherhood, reduce anxiety, stretch, relax, breathe and bond with your child during a baby and mommy yoga class with Bay & Bee.  This class is designed for moms (or dads/grandparents) and babies: newborn to 7 months old.

You and your baby will cuddle to specially selected yoga songs. Breathe and om with your little one, give gentle kisses and incorporate your baby into poses while strengthening your core.  Yoga Cubs is a fun way to reconnect with your body while enjoying time with your baby and meeting other new moms.  Infants will respond to the rhythm and tempo of the music while strengthening the muscles in their head, neck, shoulders and core.

Classes will be taught by Lauren McGuinness, a RYT-200 certified yoga instructor, from Bay & Bee.

Yoga Cubs will meet the Third Saturday of each month at 9:15am.  Classes are 45-minutes long and take place at the PepsiCo Foundation Education Campus located at the south end of the Zoo's main parking lot.  You do not need to enter the Zoo in order to enter the education campus. Feel free to bring your own yoga mat from home or you may purchase a Zoo education logo'd yoga mat for $20 (cash or card).
