Yoga for Babies is the Creepiest Exercise Video We’ve Ever Seen

Babies have way more stuff these days than when we were infants. They’ve got their own cappuccinos. They’ve got their own diamond studded bathtubs and baby-sized ponies. Now they’ve even got their own yoga regiment.

Lena Fokina, a native of Russia and resident of Dahab, Egypt, has been teaching baby yoga for more than two years, although to us it looks more like extreme baby gymnastics designed to terrify them and scar them for life.

We’re not alone. Some of her earliest videos that appeared on YouTube were flagged as inappropriate and taken off the popular video website. Fokina said she’s never received any complaints about her work or videos featuring her (because babies can’t talk or type unless she’s holds a session with the E*Trade baby) in an interview with the blog,

Did they notice that the babies aren’t crying—they’re even laughing—and that this system has been used for over thirty years in Russia and the children are all alive and healthy? If you need more proof, the best thing is to come see us.

Watch her work and judge for yourself, although we have to warn you: we know we’ll have trouble getting to sleep tonight.
