Experience an empowered pregnancy.
Take control of your pregnancy and delivery in a yoga class designed to keep you calm and comfortable while preparing you for labor.
In prenatal yoga, we focus on the mind and the body. Class incorporates:
Physical: Strengthening, stretching, breathing
Mindfulness: Vocal toning, breath work, visualization
This unique combination gives you the physical strength to navigate pregnancy, and helps you tap in to your inner wisdom and instincts. As you increase your intuitive awareness of your mind and body, you’ll strengthen your ability to listen to and trust your inner voice.
As a result, you’ll feel empowered and able to make the best decisions for a safe and healthy pregnancy and to give birth as naturally as possible.
You can begin attending prenatal classes as soon as you know you are pregnant—in fact, starting prenatal yoga early in your pregnancy is a huge benefit. Yoga is a great preventative measure that can help you avoid or minimize the common discomforts of pregnancy. Classes are offered twice per week, with no commitments or requirements. The benefits of yoga, along with the support system of the incredible group of pregnant women in class, will help carry you throughout pregnancy.
“I can’t begin to tell you how beneficial I found Melissa’s prenatal class! The environment she creates is so nurturing and supportive that I felt her class was a perfect fit from day one! I only wish I had found it sooner….Regularly practicing the poses and stretches she showed us kept leg cramps away, and eased the pain in my back considerably. If that was all I got from prenatal yoga, I would have been grateful, but there was so much more to the class than the physical benefits….Thanks for all you do, Melissa!”

“Your yoga classes were such a wonderful part of my pregnancy and continuing on with the mommy and me classes has been such a pleasure. You have a warm and welcoming spirit that just permeates every part of your class. You teach great yoga classes – but for me the experience went far beyond the practice of yoga. You create a welcoming community for all that practice with you. I was amazed how you got to know each and every individual that came to class, remembering everyone by name. I was expecting a great yoga class – what I wasn’t expecting were the friendships that would develop in class. It has been a great help meeting other pregnant women and other women with small children. You do so much more than teach yoga – you help build communities of support in your studio. The whole experience has enriched my life.”
