Vinyasa Yoga: Whether you have never practiced yoga before, are a seasoned yogi or 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 offer a broader range options to help you reduce stress and anxiety, be more focused and productive, turn your attention inward and live mindfully.
Fertility Yoga: 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.
Prenatal Yoga: 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 common 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 their babies. All stages of pregnancy are welcome!
Baby & Me Yoga: Our energizing postnatal yoga series allows you to rebuild strength in their abdominal and pelvic floor muscles while also focusing on upper-body stretches for tightness that you may be experiencing in your shoulders from nursing, feeding and carrying your newborn. We encourage new parents to bring your babies (birth - 12 months) as we include infant massage, 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, sometimes-challenging new time. All parents are welcome!
Baby Wearing Yoga: Wear your baby for an energizing postnatal work out. We will focus on building strength with lunges and squats and stretches for the upper body, neck and shoulders.
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 in the process of giving birth. They are also a helpful starting point for conversations and communication with your care provider. 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.
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 bad, in the bathroom, how to use countertops and furniture to make the most of your time at home.
