I'm shocked.......and glad this woman was shunned by the audience during an interview. How on earth can swinging a newborn around your head be considered good for the baby MORE TO THE POINT WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS WHEN BABY GETS DROPPED??!!

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

That almost made me cry...as I've got my own two week old bundled in a sling close to my chest at the moment. Crazy mama hormones.

Feeling sick now. Can't believe the baby actually survived this unharmed. Physically at least...

Yeah, she's freakin insane. All a newborn wants to do is be squashed between mama's breasts and nurse.

I saw only a still of that video months ago. Could not bring myself to even watch it. Made me want to puke.

OMFG!!! What an earth was that? Certainately not baby yoga, more like child abuse. Who ever thought it was ok to throw a 2 week old baby around needs their head examining. It was really awful to see and i wanted to step in, grab the baby and call social services. Children don't even treat their dolls in this way. Newborns need there head and necks supported. They need holding not being thrown around. I really hope this doesn't become a new trend. Baby massage, yes and gently. This type of yoga, no way! It's wrong in every single way.

I had to stop it! That is horrifying. Shaken baby syndrome doesn't even run through her mind i'm assuming or how about pulling an arm out of the socket?

Yeah, I think it's called the wrong thing completely (thats if it deserved a name) I have heard of baby yoga and didn't think it was like this!! I did baby massage and always assumed baby yoga was similar. The only person who might benefit is the person throwing the baby around....if thats what one might define as exercise!!!!

That is NOT baby yoga. That woman is a nut. I used to run a yoga studio and many of the teachers there practiced with their children, even babies. It is very gentle and is not supposed to over stretch their already very limber little bodies.
