  • I am absolutely appalled!!!!! They should be put in jail for abuse and that "new age practice" needs to be stopped. Now, I don't know much about yoga, but it's my understanding that all you do is stretch - not have yourself tossed around like a sack of potatoes in the air!

  • Oh yeah I saw that on TV. No way would i ever do that to my baby. I don't know how they don't consider that to be damaging to the baby. My first thought was shaken baby syndrome.

    that bitch.

    That is just crazy! At first, I thought it was a fake baby, but I have seen other videos and it is a real baby. So SAD and wrong!

  • I just saw that for the first time, and I couldn't watch that all the way through. I don't see how she says that's beneficial to the child at all. *shudder* Way too disturbing for me.

  • I seriously find this disturbing. Babies are so fragile, and their brains cannot handle all of the twisting and turning... so messed up. I do not see how yoga...or flinging your baby around...is beneficial in any way. Makes me mad!! thank you for sharing, I am inclined now to research into this more!

  • It made me sick when I saw it. She has a 2 videos that I have seen, and I have seen another of a man doing the same thing. She lives in Russia. Apparent the child is older now and perfectly healthy. She raised 2 kids this way. I forget what the point of it was, like there is ever a good reason to do this! What a difference in culture, if this was a US video she would have been reported to CPS. It still makes me ill just watching it. But better to know the child is ok.
