Prenatal and Postnatal Programs
Supporting mamas and mamas-to-be.
We weren’t kidding when we said we build these life skills from the ground up! 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 growing community of mamas and feel supported as you step into this beautiful new chapter of life.
Please pre-register for our classes online.
Postnatal Mom & Baby Yoga
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. The class focuses on safe pelvic floor and core strengthening, as well as tuning in to the post-baby body’s needs by offering luscious deep relaxation and/or breath work practices to support mamas at this beautiful and demanding stage. This is 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. It’s 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.
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.

New Moms Movement & Learning Series (6 weeks)
with Bryant Resch
Spend the morning bonding with your newborn and other new mamas in this New Mom Movement & Learning 6-week series. Each session will begin with 20 minutes of gentle mom & baby yoga to get you geared up for your day. After our movement, we will have a different guest speaker come in and talk about relevant topics such as lactation, postpartum self-care, baby massage, marriage after baby, postpartum health and fitness, and sleep training. Following our learning session, we’ll enjoy some light and healthy snacks during a new moms circle.
This class is suitable for babies 6 months and younger. Any movement exercises can be adjusted to wherever you are in your postpartum journey.
New Moms Movement & Learning Series is led by Bryant Resch, prenatal/postnatal yoga instructor and founder of Om Family Wellness where she provides both yoga and integrative health coaching to families of all shapes and sizes.
