BENDI BABY YOGA MAT REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!! (Closed)
HELLO & HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!
I’m a HUGE advocate of yoga and feel that there are millions of benefits both physically and mentally to the practice.
Did you know that both infants and children can also benefit from yoga?!
Did you know that there is an amazing company that designs the perfect yoga mats for young yogis?!
If you’re looking to expose your child to the beautiful practice of yoga you will LOVE the Bendi Baby mats!!
I’m Brooke Kochel, the CEO of Bendi Baby, Inc. Our tribe consists of Charles (my CFO), 3-year-old Sage Pilar (my assistant), and 2-month-old Rumi (my inspiration). In 2011, we spent the year at our family farm in Arkansas. “It was there, with my then 2-year-old hanging from my Down Dog, that I realized the need for young children’s yoga mats.” I also have a Master’s Degree in Child Development, delivered babies as a Midwife, and studied yoga under Shiva Rea for six years, so the idea of the Baby Yoga Mat seemed to fill a developmental and practical need for mamas and infants.
Our concept progressed daily from our farmhouse, which literally sits in the middle soybean field. We wanted the company to have a “soul” and keep its “roots” as it grew. The Bendi Baby logo captures that essence by portraying a soybean, with a curviness that not only symbolizes the flexibility of yoga, but the organic “bending” in life necessary for living in the “flow” with kids. The four peas have come to represent my sweet family.
I designed the mat with an on-the-go mother in mind. With a built-in antibacterial, you can fit the mat in your diaper bag or purse and lay it anywhere for a clean, soft space for “Little Bit”. The uses for the mats are as creative as your family can be: yoga at school, Mommy & Me classes, picnics at the park, diaper changes in public restrooms, fun at festivals, naps at daycare, baby massage with Daddy or Special Needs physical therapy.
With Love & Light, from our family to yours…
THE BENDI BABY MAT IS ULTRA SOFT, PORTABLE, HAS TWO COLORS, AND TWO DIFFERENT SIZES TO MEET YOUR CHILDS NEEDS.

Benefits of Baby Yoga
In one short daily session, babies receive as much physical activity as if they were handled for a few hours. Yoga offers daily routines for parents to engage constructively with their babies from birth as a foundation for future regular exercise
Baby Yoga promotes more and better sleep
Regular movement promotes a more ‘settled’ behavior with less extreme ups and downs.
Physiological / developmental benefits
All the babies bodily systems are stimulated, including the digestive and nervous systems
Baby Yoga offers recourses to keep babies contented between feeds and helps alleviate wind and colic
Baby Yoga reduces the frustration of babies in the transition of one developmental stage to another while assisting their transitions
Tactile stimulation has been shown to contribute to the development of the brain and the nervous system.
Baby yoga helps the parent and baby to get to know each other better through active means of communication that are easy to learn and practice
New challenges introduced at a pace that babies can absorb and integrate increase their ability to cope positively with new situations
Active interaction with parents is the foundation for future positive social relations over the early years and beyond
Joint relaxation is mutually beneficial for parents and babies and enhances non-verbal communication between them. Early birth trauma can be resolved and healed through this loving interaction.
