BAY RIDGE - A specially designed class in Bay Ridge is proving that babies can strike yoga poses just like their moms.

The yoga class is called Shanti Baby Yoga. Moms and their little ones both stretch together on the yoga mat.

The goal of the class is to get women back to their pre-baby figure while helping babies develop self-awareness.

The class usually has about 10 moms at a time, and the babies range in age from 6 weeks to 1 year.
