“Practicing yoga with my baby next to me has been really lovely – even if I only get to do a few poses, a little goes a long way… Class is challenging and gentle. It's so easy to click and I'm in, and it's nice being on mute so no one's distracted by my chatty baby!"

Ma Yoga for Moms

Love Ma Yoga! It’s individualized, calming, balancing, strengthening and nurturing for both body and the nervous 1st-time mom soul.

Kristina D.

Ma Yoga was exactly what I needed!

I learned a lot, from breathing exercises to pregnancy-friendly postures to awareness of certain important muscle groups. I worked my increasingly pregnant body, without ever pushing it too far.

I always felt a lot better after class than before, more relaxed and with less aches and pains. I highly recommend Ma Yoga to any pregnant woman, but especially yoga-nitwits like me who need some extra reassurance and support!

Trynke DeJong

Colleen’s prenatal yoga class is amazing!

Colleen treats each session as a community bonding experience. We start with a little sharing about how we are feeling and I personally get a lot from this.

There’s plenty of repetition of postures for those who aren’t familiar with doing yoga to feel confident in what you are doing but enough variation for the experienced yogis to not feel like it’s routine.

Samantha

Jamie is an incredible teacher, with so much calm and helpful advice…wonderful all around!

Tasha V.

The instructors are knowledgeable and confident. I only wish I found this when I was pregnant!

Leilani W.

Thank you so much for your wonderful gift of [Ma Yoga for Everyone] today. My legs are still shaking but I feel less anxious.

You are amazing!! Can’t thank you enough for your encouragement to join you this morning. I needed it emotionally and physically.

 

Rosibel R.

I just want to take a quick minute to thank you SO much for these classes, Jess.  I REALLY look forward to them. Not only can i feel my (now plumper) body strengthening, but I have noticed that when I am stressed I have a hard time breathing deeply.

Anyway, your class, the breathing and mostly YOU have helped me realize what that is and learn to take a moment and breathe.  I REALLY appreciate it.  Truly.

Gina S.

I started going to Ma Yoga when I was 16 weeks pregnant.  It was the best thing I could have done for myself!

Prenatal yoga helped a lot with the normal aches and pains of pregnancy.

I felt myself getting stronger and overall feeling much better each time I went.  It also helped me deal with the stress of being pregnant.

Kristin L.

I had a wonderful experience with Rachelle during my pregnancy. She is extremely knowledgable about prenatal yoga and goes above and beyond to make sure you get the answers you are looking for during this precious time.

She is also very hands on, corrects your poses if she sees you’re out of alignment which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend her class!

Brooke D.

These yoga classes are great. I often walk in feeling like my back and hips are all out of whack and then walk out feeling *amazing*.

I love the community here too – it’s a very supportive place.

All choices are embraced and that feels really nice.

Lyra K.

I googled around and found Ma Yoga. I went to the first free class and enjoyed it. It was harder than I thought it would be, but I left feeling better.

My instructor was Jessica and I really loved her attitude and the class. Toward the end of my pregnancy, I was definitely getting better at all the poses and my balance.

Heather P.

I just wanted to drop you a line and express my gratitude for the confidence you’ve inspired in me as I approach labor. Your class was like a lifeline, with your words of wisdom echoing through me as I approach the big day and beyond!

Additionally, the learning and insightful instruction I’ve received has led to a much more comfortable last month than I anticipated.

Angie W.

Thank you again for another great class. You don’t know how much I love coming every week.

Not only is it nice to finally “move” my body, but I love being able to connect with Grayson. And he loves doing yoga with mommy too!

Jennifer W.

Practicing yoga with my baby next to me is such a rewarding experience – even if I only get to do a few poses, a little goes a long way.

Jessica is an amazing yoga teacher, especially for pre and post natal women who need a little extra care from an experienced teacher.

Her class is challenging, but gentle, and I leave feeling like I’ve had a spa day.

Tiffany F.

I can’t tell you enough how much yoga helped me, not only through my pregnancy, but also through labor.

I know that it made all the difference for my health, and also for my body & mind through pregnancy and when I was laboring and pushing. Can’t thank you guys enough!

Lilly-Jade

I am so thankful for my experience with yoga and I am so excited to continue my practice now that my baby is here.

I love having dedicated ‘me time’ in the calendar. Yoga definitely changed my life. I am more at peace with myself now than I ever have been before.

Kelley L.

Rachelle is so knowledgeable and welcoming and I am so thrilled my sister told me about this gem! She beams warmth and passion for what she does.

She’s an incredible resource and she’s very attentive to everyone’s movement within the class.

I’m very excited that I found Rachelle and this class so early in my pregnancy so that I can make it a part of the rest of my journey.

Barri S.

My prenatal class with Jessica has been the best thing in my life. I am now 29 weeks pregnant, and I know this class has made all the difference in the quality of my pregnancy experience.

I feel healthy, strong and empowered; both mentally and physically. I have Ma Yoga to thank!!

Vicky V.

I am so grateful for the service provided at Ma Yoga. Last night’s class helped soothe my nerves and bring me back to center. The intimacy of the group and the like-mindedness of the other pregnant moms left me feeling cleansed and cared for. Plus, when you’re pregnant, you wonder if all your non-preg friends can really stand to hear more about your pregnant woes and changes, but here, all were completely supportive and understanding, because they’re all in it with you.

Rachelle, the instructor, was not only fantastic, she was kind, compassionate and informative about all things birth related.  Thanks Ma Yoga for your services to pregnant moms. I’ll be spending the rest of my pregnancy (and beyond) with you!

Stephanie A.

Rachelle’s prenatal yoga class saved my sanity in my third trimester. I didn’t start prenatal yoga until I was around 7 months pregnant, and the class allowed me to carve out time to focus on my own wellbeing as well as my baby’s.

I learned so much about healthy pregnancy and from Rachelle and the other women in the class. The breathing techniques also came in super handy for pain management during labor and delivery.

Heidi S.

During my pregnancy Rachelle was my savior! It was my first baby, and my first time doing yoga.

I used so many techniques during my labor and they actually helped! I could hear her calming voice in my ear during contractions. There aren’t any words to express my gratitude for her class.

Kadijah W.

Thank you so much for recommending me to take Melanie’s and Rachel’s classes.

Learning so much from them and my sciatica pain is so much better since I started taking prenatal classes.  Thank you so much.

 

Seno R.

Whether you’ve done Yoga a lot before, or you have never tried it, Jessica is very welcoming and an excellent prenatal yoga teacher.

When I’m having a good day, or having a harder day, there’s really no excuse to not go to Ma Yoga because it 100% makes me feel even better. If you’re looking for a Prenatal class, do this one!

Meghan N.

Jessica is so warm and supportive, with detailed knowledge of the body. She quickly became a key source of support throughout my pregnancy, helping me prepare for the biggest change of my life.

I have recently returned to Mommy and me yoga with my 7 month old and it felt like coming home. I can’t tell you how blissed out I felt all week after yoga. Truly the most amazing yoga class I have taken – such a nurturing and safe space.

LOVE LOVE LOVE my classes with Jessica at Ma Yoga!!! I’ve been attending since I was 21 weeks and I’m now 26 weeks.

I feel more relaxed and calmer about the prospect of giving birth – it was VERY nerve-racking to think of it before I started my classes. It helps you breathe and strengthen and just feel more confident that “you can do this”!!!! 🙂

Kate F.

Jessica Jennings is a talented teacher, and she comes with both nursing and [alignment] expertise- so you are in very good hands when you take her class!

Labe I.

I finally didn’t feel so alone in the journey and I learned so much about what I can do during labor. I literally reared up. Thank you.

Erika L.

Thanks for caring so much and for your amazing class Melanie!

All the techniques I learned and practiced in your yoga class also helped me to achieve this birth.

Patty

Yoga has relieved the discomfort and the aches of pregnancy and made the experience more enjoyable.

It has made me aware of simple things I can correct on a daily basis to relieve common pregnancy symptoms. I learn something new every week.

Welcome! I’ve been teaching prenatal yoga for more than 20 years (eek) and I remember being terrified when I first started.

There’s so much fear around pregnancy! Anxiety is becoming even more common than postartum depression. 

Over the years, we’ve had thousands of moms-to-be come through our classes.

I’ve seen over and over that with just a little bit of the right kind of support, guidance and inspiration, we can change the challenges into opportunities to discover the power, wisdom, and nurturing energy flowing through us.

After getting my Masters in Kinesiology and becoming certified in alignment-based yoga, I created Ma Yoga to address the specific needs of women during their childbearing years.

The syllable “ma” means mother in every language. And in Sanskrit, the language of yoga, it also means the highest, most powerful, wise, and nurturing.

I love the idea that when we learn to turn that same nurturing energy we usually reserve for loved ones inward toward ourselves, we can reconnect to our feminine wisdom and power.

I’m honored to be part of this growing, nurturing community of prenatal yoga teachers, birth, postpartum and therapeutic yoga experts – and of course lots of moms and moms-to-be.

We’re so excited to see you in the Ma Yoga Zoom Room!
