Hi I’m Jessica.
I’ve been teaching prenatal yoga since 2001, when it was “gentle yoga.”
But women need their strength during pregnancy maybe more than any other time.
Physically, stabilizing joints and strengthening muscles helped mamas feel great.
Energetically, finding steadiness amidst all the life changes helped mamas enjoy the journey.
The “ma” in Ma Yoga – which means mother in every language – also means the highest, most powerful and wise – as in “Ma Kali”, the mother of all goddesses.
Ma Yoga isn’t just about becoming a mom. It’s about learning to receive nurturing energy – so you can rediscover your highest, most powerful and wise “Ma” Self.
At night I do the Rescue Poses just because they feel so good and relaxing.

But ALL classes are great for tuning into your body, heart, breath, openness, peace, and gratitude...so they are really for every woman.
I really appreciate the ability to pick a session based on length of time I have to practice, and being able to participate from home.
I had pretty intense lower back pain and used the 'Happy Back Practice' routine to help relieve the pain and regain mobility. Jess was SUPER helpful, followed up and provided additional recommendations on how to get relief.
Also I’m very list-oriented so I loved how the program listed the steps and then checked them off as you completed them. Very encouraging.
Thanks so much for developing this program and making it accessible online! I loved that it was so specifically tailored to the needs of pregnant women and moms. It was immensely helpful and reassuring to me. To be honest, I forget how I even heard about the program. Obviously a gift from the universe!
My first video was a simple 15-minute moon salutation and, on a night where something longer felt overwhelming, having that option to do just a little helped so much.
