Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Classes, Workshops, and Programs

Supporting mamas and mamas-to-be.

 

We weren’t kidding when we said we build these life skills from the ground up! Our team offers numerous educational resources and opportunities to connect with other women in the prenatal/pregnancy and postpartum/postnatal phases of life. We offer daily prenatal and postnatal yoga and fitness classes, as well as weekly new mom groups and meet-ups, and seasonal workshops led by Bay Area experts.

 

Overview of Offerings

In addition to daily Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Classes, our team offers regular support groups and workshops designed to support pre- and postpartum mamas! Join our growing community of mamas, find new mom friends, and receive support as you step into a beautiful new chapter of life.

New Mom Support Group & Finding Your Groove Workshop

New Mom Support Group meets twice a week, offering mamas a one-hour long weekly drop-in support circle facilitated by Katie Taylor, PsyD. Connect with other mamas, check-in about your week, and get expert input and support as you navigate the transition to motherhood. Babies of any age are welcome!

Starting October 1, 2019 the Tuesday support group will transform into Finding Your Groove, a rolling six-week series focusing on ways to find your rhythm after having a baby. Katie will review strategies for managing stress, supporting relationships, making time for self-care, and dealing with anxiety and low mood. In Finding Your Groove, Katie will cover a new theme each week: Finding Your People, Finding Your Peace, Finding Your Happiness, Finding Your Partner, Finding Your Self, and Finding Your Future. The series rotates themes each week, and cycles back to Finding Your People after the sixth session. Tickets are available online.

An Introduction to New Mom Support Group

On the first Thursday of every month, Katie facilitates an Introduction to New Mom Group! The workshop is designed to help new mamas find their feet and scope out the lay of the land. Maybe you’re looking for activities, or places to find mom friends, or maybe you’re looking for postpartum support – we’ve got you covered! In the introductory group, Katie helps you figure out how to find your mama tribe by offering information about local programs, support, and resources.

The next Introductory Group meets on Thursday, October 3, 2019 from 12 noon – 1:00 pm.

Prenatal Strength

This class is a precise blend of yoga, mindfulness, and strength-training that targets the muscles used most during pregnancy and labor. Through functional training sets, it will also prepare you for the demands of motherhood, such as lifting and carrying your new baby.

This class is open to all expecting mamas, preferably with your healthcare provider’s “go-ahead.”
