"i see the results.. that just brings love to my heart to see a child go from really crazy at the beginning of class to this peaceful being on their yoga mat." and lets not forget about mom-- "when mom is relaxed -- baby is relaxed.. so it's a great opportunity for moms to take a deep breathe -- and the more deep breathes we can take as mommas -- the happier our babies are."
