jessica prenatal yoga founder of ma yoga

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.

The live online class was great! Viviana was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure to incorporate moves based off of the body aches we all had, so it was a great class... I will definitely be back in her class.

When I saw the online membership that offers a community, advice and videos I immediately signed up. I've watched a couple videos... great success in reducing lower back pain!!!! I think this will be a huge benefit to my life as well as my baby.

“I highly recommend this class to any pregnant woman, but especially yoga-nitwits like me… I always felt a lot better after class than before, more relaxed and with less aches and pains.”
I honestly wouldn't be painting right now if I hadn't taken Happy Back. Jessica walks you through each step so it's so easy. Now I do simple things to change how I'm standing while I'm doing my work, and I'm pain free.

At night I do the Rescue Poses just because they feel so good and relaxing.

Practicing yoga with my baby next to me is such a rewarding experience – even if I only get to do a few poses, a little goes a long way… Class is challenging, but gentle.

Thank you for all the great classes, it was really excellent to feel strong and confident throughout pregnancy, knowing that I could make it through an intense yoga class kept me from being afraid to exercise and really use my body the whole way through.
I am a mom of a toddler and "trying" for my second child now. I love how there are classes for every stage... strengthening for moms, yoga for fertility, and there are so many more classes for pregnancy and preparing for labor!

But ALL classes are great for tuning into your body, heart, breath, openness, peace, and gratitude...so they are really for every woman.

When I became pregnant a second time, I knew there would be no chance of making it to 5:30 yoga practice so I joined Ma Yoga Living so I could practice at home after my son went to bed.

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’d give 10 stars if I could! Ma Yoga was a lifesaver to me during the last trimester of my pregnancy last year.

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.

I love that you provided encouragement to meditate regularly even if it’s only for a short time. And you provided structure for short meditation sessions. This is hard to find! I find myself meditation for a minute sometimes and just doing deep breathing much more often then I used to, even when I don’t have time for longer sessions.

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!

I have been committing to a few minutes of meditation and pranayama each morning and I’ve noticed that it really helps keep me calm during the morning chaos of trying to get the kids out the door.

Just did Colleen's Open Shoulders/Heart video. It's a nice length -- long enough to feel like I actually did something but not overwhelming, especially as I'm diving back in. I really appreciate the guidance/reminders about alignment and what each part of the body is supposed to be doing in each pose. I find that very helpful.

I want to say how much I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the Ma Yoga program! I love its flexibility, and the mix of focus and intensity.

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.

I just want to take a quick minute to thank you SO much for these classes, Jess.  I REALLY look forward to them. Not only can i feel my (now plumper) body strengthening, but I have noticed that when I am stressed I have a hard time breathing deeply.

Anyway, your class, the breathing and mostly YOU have helped me realize what that is and learn to take a moment and breathe.  I REALLY appreciate it.  Truly.
