Extreme baby yogaExtreme baby yoga

(2:48) Russian PE teacher Lena Fokina flips babies above her head and behind her back in a way so shocking that many would consider it child abuse. She insists it is safe and beneficial to children. Apparently first practiced by ancient African tribes, the modern incarnation of baby yoga is being developed by Russian Dr Igor Charkovsky.

In some scenes you can clearly hear the baby cries in distress. What if you accidently drop the baby? Are you just going to say "Sorry about that!".

Even many adults could not sustain being swung about by their limbs at those angular velocities without suffering fractures, sprains and muscle tears never mind the relatively fragile tissues of an infant. This is an absolutely terrible idea with no possible benefit for anyone other than the people making a buck from swinging babies around. Shame on any parent who consents to that abusive behaviour on their children.

There's no "consider" about it. Clearly child abuse...

Esta mujer no tiene hijos propios, por eso hace lo que hace con los hijos ajenos sin medir las consecuencias. Ignorantes los padres de estos hijos que le permiten a esta mujer semejante edefesio. Esto no es yoga, es tortura infantil. La prueba está en que los niños lloran de angustia.

Yet more dangerous hippie / new-age drivel. along side homeopathy, psychic surgery, urine therapy, trepanning, breatherianism and stuffing crystals up yr arse to cure bowel cancer. What a crock of sh*t. The very fact that it was practiced by an uninformed ancient African tribe tells you all you need to know. A few of my friends are into 'anything cranky', by that, I mean - if its not mainstream they make a b-line for it and the logic runs thus: the more out-there it is - the more true it is and the more I try to reason with them the more they dig their heels in. She practices in Egypt because there is almost no chance of her being arrested, even if she injures a child. Can't help but wonder what the reaction would be if she was doing this with cats...?

OMG - Someone should swing this stupid woman by her arms and legs and see if she thinks it's a good idea. Why hasn't she been arrested for child cruelty and why haven't the child welfare agency taken the poor child away from this sadist.

freaky, this seems not for the benefit of the child, who is not relaxed or happy during these grotesque manouveres, at the time this was deevelpoped, in ancient times im sure its because they believed it has benefit,,, in these time it most definately doesnt as we have better ways ,,, less harmful

Sorry for the typo, so correction here: his is no yoga, this is child abuse. Imagine if I do something like this and say its aerobic. You know its NOT aerobic, its NOT yoga. Its child abuse-plain and simple.

The human equivalent of the chicken used for a Kaparot ritual. Then again, if this were a religious thing it would be just fine. Check out the baby tossing ritual in Karnataka, India.
