Hi I’m Jessica. I’ve been teaching prenatal yoga since 2001, when I fell in love with this exciting time.
As a Lifestyle Educator in the Kaiser Permanente OB/Gyn department, Certified Feminine Power Transformational Group Facilitator and yoga teacher trainer, I saw clearly that with the right kind of guidance and support, we can learn to change the challenges of this time to opportunities to step into our greatest possibilities.
When I was pregnant, I loved being part of a community of pregnant women in prenatal yoga. Unfortunately, when I became a mom, I couldn’t afford childcare to go to a yoga class.
I felt isolated, depleted and stressed, and I needed my support and strengthening yoga as a new mom more than ever.
That’s why I created Ma Yoga® – so that women could have the guidance, inspiration, and community we all need to have a transformative pregnancy as well as a healing, nurturing postpartum. More than 18,000 women came through our 10 Southern California “Mama Circles”.
Once we created the online Ma Yoga Living Room with our prenatal yoga, birth education, and nourishing and nurturing routines for busy moms, we became a growing, global community of women seeking to embody their highest, most powerful, wise “Ma” Self.
It all starts with saying YES to support, guidance, and inspiration.
And yes, you can have it all – in your pajamas!
Individualized, calming, balancing

Ma Yoga was a lifesaver
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 some relief.
I ended up using the short practice almost daily and still go back to it now, more than a year after delivery, whenever my back flares up."
Classes for every stage
I could practice at home after my son went to bed
I really appreciated the ability to pick a session based on length of time I had to practice, and being able to participate in prenatal yoga from home.
Helps Keep Me Calm During Morning Chaos
Huge benefit to my life
I wouldn’t be painting right now if I hadn’t done Happy Back
A Gift from the Universe!
I’m very list-oriented so I loved how the Ma Meditation 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. To be honest, I forget how I even heard about the program. Obviously a gift from the universe!
Live online class was great
I love its flexibility
