Whether you have never practiced yoga, are a seasoned yogi, or are developing your practice, private vinyasa-yoga instruction will help you coordinate your breath and movement to build strength, flexibility, and body awareness. The benefits of private instruction include personalized attention, hands-on adjustments, a tailored set of poses to help prevent or modify for injuries so that you can grow at your own pace.
Meditation & Mindfulness
Our private meditation instruction can help you target specific issues or provide a broader range of options to help you reduce stress and anxiety, be more focused and productive, turn your attention inward, and live mindfully.
Offered only as private sessions for individuals and couples, we tailor exercises according to your personal, natural cycle to support an integrated and holistic approach to fertility. Sessions are designed to relieve stress, balance hormones and heighten fertility through active relaxation, breathing techniques, channeling energy and directing blood flow. Our nourishing yoga practice will help you develop a mind-body connection through meditation and mindfulness.
We support you through a conscious, nurturing, and strengthening yoga practice. Prenatal Yoga is a great way to build strength and flexibility to help carry a growing belly and baby, alleviate aches and pains during pregnancy, and allow for quicker postnatal recovery. Our prenatal yoga exercises are targeted to teach you to use your muscles efficiently during labor, and we practice effective breathing and relaxation techniques so you are better prepared for birth. Practicing yoga also gives you a calm, quiet, relaxing and rejuvenating space to turn your attention inward and connect with your baby (or babies!), whatever stage you’re at.
Baby & Me Yoga
Our energizing postnatal yoga series allows you to rebuild strength in your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles while also focusing on upper-body stretches to combat any tightness that you may be experiencing in your shoulders from nursing, feeding, and carrying your newborn. You are encouraged to bring your baby (birth-12 months), as we can include infant massage, baby movement, and bonding exercises in our sequence. Most importantly, we practice restorative poses to help new parents cope with modified sleep schedules in this exciting, often-challenging new time. All parents are welcome!
Baby Movement & Massage
Learn techniques to help calm and soothe your baby as well as movements to help them build more flexibility and range of motion as they start tummy time, rolling, creeping, crawling, and standing up.
Childbirth Education, Birth Planning & Yoga for Labor
Birth plans and childbirth-education classes are great ways to understand what to expect from the process of giving birth- and an individualized conversation about your own desires and plans for labor and delivery can take it to the next level. These personalized sessions are also a helpful starting point for conversations with your care provider, which is often the first step toward realizing your birth plan. Most importantly, just by going through a birth plan, you are taking a big step to inform yourself about all of your choices. You will receive the most up-to-date information on birth practices, our comprehensive birth plan, hospital/birth-center packing list and simplified to-do lists and preparation materials. You will walk away with the information needed to be that much more confident when you deliver.
Labor involves the unique combination of engaging your abdominals while relaxing your pelvic floor muscles, which can be tricky and challenging. We use safe abdominal exercises, kegels and squats and simulate mock contractions to help you accomplish this challenging balance. Not only do we target these specific muscle groups, we also learn to synchronize them, while building strength and flexibility where they are most needed. You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques for different stages of labor, safe and targeted abdominal exercises to tone your transverse abdominals (pushing muscles), and practices to build strength and flexibility in your pelvic floor. We also teach partner massage techniques, talk through using natural pain management techniques such as counter pressure, and teach you how to use props such as birth balls and rebozos, as well as other physical comfort measures to help you feel your best during pregnancy, to aid in labor and birth and for a quicker and easier postnatal recovery.
The advantage of a private in-home session is that we will be able to show you methods and techniques for labor in your own home - how to labor on your bed, in the bathroom, how to use countertops and furniture to make the most of your time at home.
