Ma Yoga Living Tip from Heather Kampf, Certified Ma Yoga® Prenatal & Mom Yoga Instructor

I first discovered yoga over 20 years ago. It wasn’t a love-at-first sight story, but when I became pregnant with my first child in 2007, and found myself lacking the energy and stamina I was accustomed to, I turned to yoga in search of not only an opportunity to maintain strength and manage weight gain, but for that uplifting influx of energy I knew could result from a session on the mat.

The prenatal yoga class I tried at my local studio left me feeling like I was doing pregnancy all wrong, so I turned to practicing along with videos in my living room and there the love affair began.

I could practice yoga whenever I felt like it, and I soon learned that even if I wasn’t “at my best,” I would feel better after finishing than when I began.

During a time full of unknowns – not just because I was pregnant for the first time, but because my husband and I had moved halfway across the country to start a new life with no family nearby – my yoga practice became something that I alone controlled.

That word “alone” that for me was a positive thing, I ultimately learned was also the thing that left me out of some of the greatest gifts a yoga practice can offer, such as a like-minded community, the support and guidance of teachers, and the energy that fills a room when we practice together.

Energy, after all, was the very thing I had been originally seeking. After five years of practicing alone, I tried going to a yoga studio again – and realized what I’d been missing all that time.

A few years later, when both my kids were in elementary school, I made the time to take a 200-hour yoga teacher training, and a couple years after that, I met Jessica and discovered MaYoga. I found myself wishing I had known about MaYoga when I was pregnant, and discovered a drive to offer it to others!

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Together we can discover what you need most right now and how your yoga practice can support those goals on and off the mat.

Heather was amazing -- she listened to my specific concerns (and aches and pains), and offered targeted flows and poses to help strengthen and serve what I needed. She has an incredible, calming presence. Anyone working with her will be in great hands!

Enjoyed Heather Kampf's Friday class! Heather demonstrates poses so that it is easy to follow her instructions; she also checks closely to see that I am in the correct position on the mat to receive the maximum benefit for my body. Stretching, flexibility, and balance are all benefits of Yoga that are emphasized in this class. Easy to see that Heather enjoys teaching her love of Yoga to others!!

Heather's class was amazing. She was warm and welcoming...the cues were so helpful; the flow and sequencing of the class was just what I needed. She has a warm and welcoming presence - even thru zoom, you could feel her connection to those of us i the class. I will enjoy another class with her for sure!!

Heather led a nice class working to make “Breath with movement and staying in the present moment the goal over personal perfection” as her theme. The class flowed nicely and Heather’s cuing was easy to understand. I felt the Warrior poses were challenging in their hold time which was good as contractions are going to hang around for awhile as well. Feeling that intensity and getting through it is great prep for labor.

Heather K. is a great teacher! I really enjoyed the Yoga for Busy Moms class. I loved her authentic voice, playful/not too serious class -- I noticed myself smiling throughout the practice. Loved the gratitude/body scan meditation at the beginning and the closing Om, focusing on taking the vibrations with me throughout the day.
