Child Abuse In The Guise Of Yoga

Updated on April 13, 2018

In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.

The video has went viral. People swinging babies around in ways that look as if the baby will snap and break at any moment.

I am posting this disturbing video here.

Please be prepared. Don't scream. Now wait a minute:




Here is the video and following you will read my opinions.


The woman you see flipping this baby around is named Lena Fokina. She is Russian and is a self-described Yoga guru.

In my opinion she is an evil woman that should be immediately jailed.

Many of you know how I feel about children and child abuse. What this woman is doing and teaching is abuse. I see cases of shaken baby syndrome coming from such stupid stunts.

Parents: please don't buy into this idiotic thought process. Swinging a baby around like a sack of potatoes will not make the baby smarter.

This woman is probably a scam artist that will do anything to gain attention, power, and money. I really doubt there are any "worthwhile" Doctors in this world that would condone this kind of "baby yoga".

I always thought yoga was a meditative state with slow movements. This woman is swinging the baby around like a Boot-camp workout video.

Look at the following list of yoga poses I found on a recognized yoga website.


Fake Or No?

Do you think the baby yoga video was "doctored"? Was it fake?

See results

Now do you see any jerking movements?

Do you see the arms of the individual getting nearly pulled out of joint?

Yes, maybe some of the poses were done by the baby, but were they beginner poses? I don't think so, and you cannot tell me that baby is above a beginner.

In my opinion, this is child abuse. That Russian should be immediately arrested. Anyone trying to do this with their baby, or someone's baby should be charged with child abuse.

It is wrong.

If you advocate such a thing, you need psychological help.

That is my stand.

That is my opinion.

May God wake these people up however He needs to!

      I was horrified when I saw this video. I think the woman is a lunatic and should be put away so she is no longer a danger to anyone.

      How crazy is this? I wish there was a way to stop her. Voted up on your hub.

      She should be arrested and locked away.

      She does more than that she dunks babies in water repeatedly in a different video I found after the "class" is done with the "baby yoga". It is so messed up when I watched it I held my 4 month old son close to me. Also I just hope that stays out of America because I know people there are already brainwashed into believing her.

      Sick! I'd like to personally come and shake this woman myself! What in the world is in her head? I first saw this clip on Facebook and it's horrible. How can anyone do such harm to a delicate and fragile baby. Madness!

      Well, thank you for writing about this. Certainly not a delightful scene but absolutely worth sharing and hopefully, people out there get the message that this act is simply WRONG!

      I'd heard about this video but never saw it til now. I often avoid this sort of thing on purpose. Now I see why I avoided it. How awful! It's amazing what goes viral.

      That's really messed up... I practice yoga and have seen some things about toddler yoga, but its simple things, like downward facing dog and warrior poses and stuff, not flinging your kid around. I've seen this before and thought it was fake, so this kinda makes me sick to my stomach.

      I think someone else has written a hub about this (I don't remember who), and I watched the video when I read that hub. I can't watch it again. It made me cry. It's so sad. I hope that woman is locked up in jail in Siberia for good.

      How can anyone do this to a baby and say they love their baby? Completely disgusted by the video.
