Prenatal yoga has been proven to have a multitude of benefits, not only in relieving pains and discomforts in pregnancy but in preparing you for labor and the birth of your child.
I practiced yoga all throughout my pregnancy, right up to the day before I gave birth! I truly believe that this practice helped me support my ever changing body, created a deeper connection to my baby, and is what allowed me to work through an intense labor and surprise delivery of my baby in the back of a an NYC taxi!
Working with pregnant families opens my heart. Being able to support parents, share valuable child birth education, ease discomforts, and help foster a strong community is a true blessing that I don’t take lightly. When you put your trust in me to become part of your pregnancy journey I want to ensure you are getting the support, attention, and information that you need, or didn’t know you needed. Each of my classes weaves together movement, birth and body education, mindfulness, and practices you can bring home.

Prenatal Yoga Privates:
Your prenatal body is unique and changing at it’s own pace. Private classes offer students a bespoke session designed to address your specific needs and body.
Private classes may be for you if: You are new to the practice and would like an introduction to yoga, are a practiced student and would like to deepen your understanding of modifications during pregnancy, are working with an injury or other physical barrier that keep you from group classes, or you would like to create a home practice that you can do on your own schedule.
Private classes can take place at your place of work, a rented studio space, or in your home. The space should be tidy and allow room for movement and full body extension. Babies are always welcome, any animals should be placed in a separate area.
Length of Class:
Classes are 60 mins – 90 mins in length, depending on your needs and goals. Please allow extra time for the first class.
Prenatal yoga benefits from having the support of props, many of which can be used in labor! The student must provide their own props: 1x mat, 2x yoga blocks (foam or cork), 1x yoga belt, 2-3 heavy blankets or 1 bolster and 1 blanket
