Testimonials for Ma Yoga

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 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

The instructors are knowledgeable and confident.

I only wish I found this when I was pregnant!

Leilani W.

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.

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 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 more at peace with myself now than I ever have been before.

Vicky V.

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.

It helps you breathe and strengthen and just feel more confident that “you can do this”!!!! 🙂

Kate F.

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

I learn something new every week.

Melissa C.

Melanie, everything you taught me over the past six months came into play and helped prepare me for that wonderful night.

Alex T.

I literally reared up.

Overall, I have seen significant improvement in my ongoing back & chest pain as well.

I feel very relaxed and flexible after each class and plan to continue it through out my pregnancy.

Anshima R.

When I told a friend that my lower back started hurting, she recommended prenatal yoga.

I found Ma Yoga online and started taking Ma Yoga classes virtually.

Wow, my lower back rarely hurts anymore! I also appreciate the chance to hear what other pregnant participants are experiencing at the start of each class.

J.P.S.

Learning so much, and my sciatica pain is so much better since I started taking prenatal classes.

Thank you so much🙏

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.

Kathy B.

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.

Noemi

Last night’s class helped soothe my nerves and bring me back to center.

I actually loved the class. I say actually because, as you know, yoga has never been my “thing” and computer stuff is also not my “thing” but Jess!

THANK YOU!

I’ve been walking around for 5 weeks with such pain in my knee/leg and all the alignment work in your Fundamentals class made me feel SO much better!

Sue B.

I was glad to be able to finally come to a class now that they’re online!

I am going to keep coming…my body really enjoyed the hour of moving, stretching, and centering.

Jelena P.

The live online class was great! The teacher was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure to incorporate moves based off of the body aches we all had, so it was a great class… I will definitely be back.

Kayla C.

Thank you so much for your wonderful gift of [Ma Yoga for Anyone] 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.

Thank you for the Ma Yoga for Anyone class this morning. I am sooo wiped out I can’t believe it! Feels great.

 

Gary K.

Awesome! Thank you so much! The virtual classes have been saving my life and I truly love these classes.

 

Laurie S.

[Ma Yoga for Anyone] was so wonderful! It was the best online yoga class I’ve attended.

Thank you for sharing your energy and beautiful ma presence to help us move energy.

 

Dr. Carley C.

From the moment I began yoga with you, I knew immediately I was in excellent hands! You and the other teachers have taught me so much, not only yoga but most importantly how to really relax.

Jessica, you are such a caring and beautiful person and I’m so amazed by what you do!

Thank you for helping me achieve being pain free which allowed me to enjoy the remainder of my pregnancy.

Sari D.

Having lost 2 previous pregnancies, I wanted to be extra cautious in my practice and exercise. I was welcomed and supported in every way.

The instructors have been wonderful! These caring instructors are full of ideas on how to modify poses.

 

Jenn R.

Thank you for all the great classes, it was really excellent to feel strong and confident throughout my pregnancy.

I actually thought about yoga class during labor!

Something you said a few times along the lines of not being afraid about what might happen during labor, just thinking “is that happening right now”… thank you for putting that idea into a more usable phrase.

Liza C.

I took the free class with Viviana on Wednesday and it was great so I am really excited to continue the practice.

Sonal G.

Thank you so much again for providing these tailored classes and community.

I told my therapist about it too because of the impact one class and your attentiveness had. It’s amazing. Thank you for this beautiful space and service.

Erica P.

Jessica’s non-prenatal Saturday morning class is a joy!

Her focus on alignment has gone a long way to improve my new sciatica injury.

She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and fun. It is a great way to start the weekend.

Gary K.

I absolutely love Ma Yoga! I’ve been taking the prenatal classes since my second trimester and it has made my pregnancy a dream. I really enjoy getting to connect with other mom’s who are going through similar experiences at the beginning of each class and my body has never felt better.

When I first started I had terrible sciatica pain and before I knew it the pain was completely gone and my body still feels amazing, even now at 38 weeks!

I am so grateful to have found these classes and I know they are a big reason why I’ve felt so strong and confident throughout this pregnancy. I highly recommend!! It’s a 5/5 experience for sure.

Amanda B.

Best thing that I found during my pregnancy is Ma Yoga!

Since they have an everyday class option for prenatal yoga, it’s a great option to be able to attend whichever day you want to attend.

Aysegul B. - from our Google listing

I have loved all of the teachers I have met in these classes. They each take the time to get to know each person and their needs and then tailor the classes to those needs.

There is a great balance between mind and body and a lot of great pregnancy advice and knowledge!

Shana K. - from our Google listing

Jessica’s Saturday class has gone a long way in helping me relieve my low back pain and understand how the parts of my body fit together.

I really appreciate her focus on alignment and breath along with her explanations of the mechanics of the body. She is the best!

Janet B.

I love getting insights into different practices and how we can connect and learn from them and our surroundings. Every single class has been wholesome for my mind body soul and baby! I have truly found a wonderful teacher in Daho and I try not to miss her classes.

Salonee S.

I finished Ash’s class with a clear mind and my body felt more open, more aligned, and energized to face the rest of the day!

She started with a thoughtful meditation which I appreciated–it helped me let go of the rest of my day. Definitely recommend!

Marisa H.

Great instructor.

Belinda J.

I was engaged right away with such amazing asanas. Such poses are very helpful in which it prepares us during and before going into labor. Rachelle is an amazing instructor that cares about her students and her class is very welcoming.

Belinda J.

Melanie is amazing, I felt welcoming and love her cues. I enjoyed the class, learned, and practiced new ways on how to incorporate chair yoga in my daily life. After taking this class, I felt more positive, strong, and energetic.

Belinda J.

Daho was professional, kind, and super patient! As a mom-to-be, I get anxious so easily – she was just so kind, caring and eliminated all my worries by chatting and helping me get back to the yoga zone.

Xu H.

Angela’s class was so nice and made me feel more centered with great use of her cueing!

Jessea W.

Daho took time to understand my pain points and targeted postures and asanas that will help relieve my pain.

She kept checking on me throughout the session to make sure I was comfortable and doing ok.

After the session, the strain and stress that built up in my lower body was released to a great extent and I feel much less pain than what I had before the session.

Geetanjali D.

I felt amazing during and after the class.

I felt relaxed and relieved from the stress and strain built up in my lower body and overall as well.

Geetanjali D.

My first class with Daho was excellent!

I really enjoyed using the block in a variety of ways from on the mat to the wall and in a chair.

I also learned a new way of standing up from h/k’s on the mat using the blocks so they are keeping the legs hugging in and protecting the pubic symphysis.

Kim S.

I felt taken care of during Daho’s class!

She had a soothing voice and clear directions with encouragements.

I felt inspired to continue learning.

Shadman H.

I am currently 37 weeks pregnant with serious SPD symptoms.

I have experienced a lot of relief from my SPD pain by doing guided practice with Jessica and Daho.

They have been truly amazing with paying a lot of attention to my pain points and providing me with Yoga postures and exercises to target my pain and provide me relief from it.

Emily G.

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 in-person and online “Mama Circles.”

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.

Ma Yoga is based in the idea that when we learn how to mother ourselves – to truly take care of and love ourselves – we step into our highest, most powerful and wise “Ma” Self.

It all starts with learning how to allow yourself to receive nurturing energy.

I’m grateful to be part of this ever-growing, supportive community of prenatal yoga teachers, birth, postpartum and therapeutic yoga experts – and of course lots of moms and moms-to-be!

We’re excited to see you soon in class!

Jessica Jennings
Founder, Ma Yoga (MS, ERYT, RYPT)

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!
