This is the "WTF of the week".

I call this child abuse (of a 2 month old baby). Am I just overreacting?

I will excuse you if you chose NOT to watch it in its entirety. (I couldn't.)

Jeez... I remember footage from a zoo-documentary where they take a baby away from a big ape for swinging the baby in that matter. This is holistic/alternative health mumbojumbo at it's worst. And I am a alternative healthnut and yoga fanatic myself. This is not healthy, nor can it be qualified as yoga.

A baby that age has virtually no muscle function.
What is that doing to shoulder/hip joints?

As a Registered Nurse I am mandated by law to report this. Mandatory Reporter I am. Someone needs to take her kundalini and kick it back into her first chakra , right now!

I'm really upset by this. I don't know how one could report it.... It looks like its in another language.

As a mandatory reporter I actually did my duty and looked into this further . I would have notified a local Child Protective Service . This Baby Yoga event happened about two years ago in Russia. The reporter who broke this story actually went back to Russia to follow up on this childs status and found the child to be an apparently normal toddler. Kids get lucky sometimes . When I was a pediatric nurse I cared for a 4 year old who had almost every bone broken and then allowed to heal broken. Totally screwed for life. If any of you witness a numbskull doing this to their child , please kick their kundalini into their first chakra and notify the authorities. You will feel better. In 20 years the kid will appreciate you whether they know you or not.
