Who’s This Class For?

  • Moms who are six weeks postpartum and babies in their pre-crawling stage. 

About The Class

Moms spend time with their new baby while reconnecting with self and gently strengthening, toning and calming the postpartum body and mind. Each class strengthens and opens areas that need attention postnatally. Short pose series are taught so moms can incorporate yoga movements into five minute practices throughout their busy new-mommy days.

This class is a supportive environment to exchange experiences with new moms and introduce your baby to new friends. No need for a baby sitter or disrupting baby’s feeding schedule.

Testimonials

  • I wanted to thank you for all the encouraging words and information in our yoga class. I used the deep breathing to get through the pain and contractions and it really helped. My husband was very impressed on how focused I was at breathing through the contractions. I really feel the yoga class helped me get through the experience. Thank you for that.

  • I just wanted to say thank you for absolutely everything that I learned from you during the winter session. My baby girl was born very early this morning and very quickly! It only took about three hours from the time my water broke at home until she was delivered. I’ve been continuing the postures from class on my own during the last four weeks and I know it made everything easy and smooth for me.

    In about an hour, I went from four centimeters to fully dilated (no epidural for me!). The nurses and doctors couldn’t believe how smoothly everything went on my first baby – especially naturally! But all during labor, I kept remembering things that you said during all the classes and especially during the relaxation portion of each class. I controlled my breath (after a few panicked attempts!) and just went with the flow and fully trusted my body. I relaxed with the contractions and she glided out so effortlessly in the perfect birthing position. The doctors thought that I had a birth plan because I took total control over when I would push and the strength I would use, but I didn’t! My “birth plan” was to repeat over and over in my head everything I learned from you and to reassure my nervous system that everything really was okay and my body does know how to give birth.

    It was such a wonderful experience and I can’t thank you enough! I’ll definitely see you next time, Bobby! Thank you again

  • Thanks once again for the amazing pre-natal yoga classes and all your wonderful information. I feel that your classes prepared me mentally and physically so well for how we ideally imagined things would go in labour and delivery – I feel so, so blessed. I plan to highly recommend your classes to any pregnant friends in the future as I really feel it was critical in preparing me for the amazing experience of childbirth. THANK YOU!
