Practice San Francisco offers numerous educational resources and opportunities to connect with other women in this life phase, including prenatal and postnatal yoga, expecting and new mom workshops led by Bay Area experts, meet-up groups, and more. Join our supportive community of mamas and feel empowered as you step into this new chapter of life!

Mindful Mom Flow
Tuesdays, 12:00 – 1:15pm
with Kari Baigrie
This lunchtime yoga class is open to prenatal and postnatal mamas with an emphasis on inner-focus, guided by breath-work, asana, and meditation. Classes will open with a moment for mindfulness, followed by asana designed to release tension and counter the effects of modern life and the changing prenatal/postnatal mama body. There will be opportunities to move vigorously or take things easy, depending on where you are at. We will close with yin-inspired asana to turn inwards and open tight places, followed by a seated meditation. Return to your day relaxed, invigorated and inspired, within a community of expecting and new moms.
Postnatal moms are welcome to bring their newborns to the class. Please note, however, that it’s not a mom & baby yoga class; this practice is for the mama and mama-to-be!
These classes focus on safe pelvic floor and core strengthening and tune-in to the post-baby body’s needs and offering luscious deep relaxation and/or breath work practices to support mamas at this beautiful and demanding stage. These classes are a safe, welcoming, and community-oriented space! You are always welcome to change a diaper, feed your babe, and swap mama tips with other mothers.
Postnatal Mom & Baby Yoga (pre-crawling): This is a gentle yoga practice to support new moms and pre-crawling babies, with options for different stages of postpartum, as well as baby yoga and massage. This class is open to all mamas (including adoptive mamas), preferably 6 weeks post-birth, and/or with healthcare provider’s go-ahead. A more restorative practice is offered to mamas with babies under 6 weeks.
Postnatal Mom & Baby Yoga (crawling): This yoga practice continues to support new moms as they progress through later stages of postpartum by deeply and safely strengthening the core, as well as building up towards a regular, well-rounded, body-aware practice. Crawling (pre-toddler) babies are welcome. We offer a safe and supportive environment for babies to explore and interact, where mamas keep an eye on their little ones during class. All mamas with crawlers (including adoptive mamas) are welcome.
Our prenatal classes offer an all-rounded prenatal practice for mamas-to-be with postures, breath work, and deep relaxation to support pregnancy, labor, and delivery. The instructor will offer options for various levels of experience and different stages of pregnancy so the practice is supportive of each expecting mama.
