Welcome to Ma Membership: live online Mom & Prenatal Yoga + resources & support

Hi I'm Jessica.

 

I created Ma Yoga® for Pregnancy, Postpartum & Beyond in 2009, specifically for women’s changing bodies and busy lives.

I chose the name because the root “Ma” means “mother” in almost every language:

  • German: Mutter, Mami

     

  • Dutch: Moeder, Moer

     

  • Hindi: माँ (Maan), मां ( Maji)

     

  • Swahili: Mama

     

  • Korean: 엄마 (Eomma)

And in Sanskrit, the language of yoga, “Ma” also means the most powerful and wise – as in Ma Kali, the Mother of all Goddess.

Ma Yoga classes aren’t just about becoming a mom to a little one.

They’re about learning to truly nurture, love and mother ourselves.

And this opens the door to our highest, most powerful and wise “Ma” Self.

Book your first free live online Ma Yoga class here.

After class you can:

  • purchase more live classes
  • become a Ma Member
  • get the full Ma experience of guidance, support, and education with a Bundle – discounted live classes plus super low cost Ma Membership.

I want to say how much I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the Ma Yoga program!

I love its flexibility, and the mix of focus and intensity.

My first video was a simple 15-minute moon salutation and, on a night where something longer felt overwhelming, having that option to do just a little helped so much.

Colleen Fitzimmons

When I became pregnant a second time, as a working mom with a 1 year old at home, I knew there would be no chance of making it to 5:30 yoga practice so I joined the Ma Yoga Living community so I could practice at home after my son went to bed.

I really appreciated the ability to pick a session based on length of time I had to practice, and being able to participate in prenatal yoga from home.

Kristin Rodriguez

I am a mom of a toddler and “trying” for my second child now.

I love how there are classes for every stage… strengthening for moms, yoga for fertility, and there are so many more classes for pregnancy and preparing for labor!

But ALL classes are great for tuning into your body, heart, breath, openness, peace, and gratitude…so they are really for every woman.

Victoria Pecheco

Just did Colleen’s Open Shoulders/Heart video. It’s a nice length — long enough to feel like I actually did something but not overwhelming, especially as I’m diving back in.

I really appreciate the guidance/reminders about alignment and what each part of the body is supposed to be doing in each pose.

Colleen

Colleen’s yoga class is wonderful! She is a terrific yoga instructor. It’s tough to find a good prenatal videos -hers are the best. You will feel better- more balanced!

Jo F.

When I saw the online Membership that offers a community, advice and videos I immediately signed up.

I’ve watched a couple videos… great success in reducing lower back pain!!!!

I think this will be a huge benefit to my life as well as my baby.

Anna G.

This has been great for me! I’m very happy to say I’ve actually done this every day since you first posted this session, and usually in the mornings (which I didn’t think I’d be able to because I am NOT a morning person).

But the brevity of it really makes it doable for me, a usually non-exercise-liking sort of person.

Colleen F.

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.

Amanda C.

I was catching up on watching all of the masterclasses and have really loved them. I have taken so many notes and wish I could share the videos with everyone I know that has babies or plans to. Having this information as a yoga teacher has made me feel confident and capable.

A self-paced program that will teach you how to relieve low back pain and keep it away:

Module 1: OVERVIEW
Discover the one thing you need to know to stop paying so many practitioners and take healing into your own hands.

Module 2: WHAT’S ALIGNMENT?
It’s not about doing it wrong or right, or “posture”. It’s about understanding the tiny shifts you can make anytime, anywhere, that will make a world of difference.

Module 3: RESCUE POSES
When your back seizes up, here are your simple positions that return your spine to its natural alignment, relax tense muscles, help you breathe again and kickstart the healing process.

Module 4: THE HAPPY BACK PRACTICE
It takes about 10 minutes to learn, and then you can do it in five minutes a day with the PDF. Start your day aligning your spine – and it’ll be easier to find that ahhhhhhh feeling all day long.

Module 5: HAPPY BACK ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT
Learn how to sit, stand, and sleep in alignment. Super subtle yet powerful adjustments you can do with very little effort to get out of pain and stay that way.

Module 6: WHAT’S NEXT?
You’re feeling great, you have your go-to Happy Back practice – now what?

Ma Meditation & Power Practice: Design Your Own

Module 3: SET YOURSELF FREE

You’ll enjoy moments where you drop in to a deep connection to your highest, most powerful, wise and nurturing “Ma” Self.

Module 5: SELF-ACTUALIZE

This step insures you’re moving forward and seeing the impact from your practice each day! Sometimes the gifts of meditation keep on giving – and get taketh away. This step allows you to keep them for all time, and continue to build on them.

Love Ma Yoga!

It’s individualized, calming, balancing, strengthening and nurturing…

for both body and the nervous 1st-time mom soul.

Kristina D.

I really like Rachelle’s class because I find that the exercises she focuses on are really helpful for pregnancy and for labor prep, plus she’s really attentive to different people’s bodies and their varying needs based on belly size and stage of pregnancy.

It’s also cool because she’s a doula so her insights to birthing and labor have been really valuable.

A.R.

I’d give 10 stars if I could! Ma Yoga was a lifesaver to me during the last trimester of my pregnancy last year.

I had pretty intense lower back pain and used the ‘Happy Back Practice’ routine to help relieve the pain and regain mobility.

Jess was SUPER helpful, followed up and provided additional recommendations on how to get relief.

 

Fatimah

I have been committing to a few minutes of meditation and pranayama each morning and I’ve noticed that it really helps keep me calm during the morning chaos of trying to get the kids out the door.

Jennifer R.

Thanks so much for developing this program and making it accessible online! I loved that it was so specifically tailored to the needs of pregnant women and moms. To be honest, I forget how I even heard about the program. Obviously a gift from the universe!

Cate H.

I honestly wouldn’t be painting right now if I hadn’t taken Happy Back.

Jessica walks you through each step so it’s so easy. Now I do simple things to change how I’m standing while I’m doing my work, and I’m pain free.

At night I do the Rescue Poses just because they feel so good and relaxing.

Michelle R.

I loved that it was broken down into small sections, and that it was a combination of videos, reading material and assignments. I printed out a few of the PDFs and keep them in my meditation spot. I really enjoyed the guided meditation about stepping out of the river. The program was immensely helpful and reassuring to me.

Karen D.

Love the side and back rib inhale! Totally changed how I breathe and how I will teach deep breathing during meditation!

Joanne B.

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.

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.

Great class with Hayley! She is a confident calming teacher. I really enjoyed her flow and the pace of the whole class.

Savannah F.

I took two abSOULutely fabulous classes today!

Lindy was my first class after a long hiatus, she was so soothing and healing for me. I went in feeling rusty and a bit “off”, I left class feeling safe and nurtured. Melanie’s class was also exceptional; her pelvic openers really soothed my lower back; it is tingling now in a state of ultimate relief!

Nina R.

On Wednesdays, I feel less physical pain, I always feel more grounded.

It’s easier to attend all the needs of my kids.

Your class is truly nurturing my soul and my body.

Judit

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

I have taken many different yoga classes and these are by far the best.

I highly recommend Melanie for pregnancy yoga. She explains everything clearly and brings you into deep concentration during class.

Also, she knows a lot about pregnancy and birth and it’s very calming hearing her advice.

Ana H. - from our Google listing

Jessica is such a wonderful teacher.

The alignment-based yoga she teaches coupled with her extensive knowledge from decades of teaching bring such depth and compassion to her teaching. I intend to take her classes for as long as she is teaching.

Please give yourself the gift of taking a class with Jessica.

Sensei April - from our Google Listing

I love Ma yoga classes, they’re exactly what I want to calm my body, soul and mind.

Highly recommend these classes and all the trainers are so experienced and empathetic.
