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.

We’ve added three new online support groups for mamas with school-aged kids!

Hey, mamas!  If you’re feeling anxious, frustrated, overwhelmed, or depressed in the midst of this sheltering-in-place chaos, we are here for you.  Join us for a new online drop-in support group for mothers facilitated by one of our therapists.  We’ll start together as a group, then break into smaller subgroups that will allow you to connect with other moms to commiserate about struggles and trade ideas about what’s working.  We will close each session by coming back together to reconnect about common themes, then close by offering a specific skill or strategy that can help you manage anxiety and mood over the course of the week.

Taking the Leap: Preparing Yourself for the Launch into Motherhood 

Live-stream on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, 6:00 – 8:00 pm 
with Katie Taylor, PsyD and Jamie Katoff LMFT

 

Expecting a new arrival? You probably have all the baby gear ready to go, but you may or may not have thought about how to prepare yourself as you launch into the journey of motherhood! Join Katie Taylor, PsyD, and Jamie Katoff, LMFT, for a workshop designed to help you get emotionally ready for parenthood. We’ll focus on helping you find support and connection with other mamas-to-be (because mom friends are the best friends!) so that you can be in touch with other mamas as you navigate the end of pregnancy, delivery, and early motherhood. In addition, we’ll cover the emotional hurdles or pitfalls that most new moms encounter– your changing body and identity, what to expect after birth physically and emotionally, and your relationship with your partner. And we’ll also give you tools for dealing with anxiety and help you create a plan to support your postpartum emotions and mental health.
