We go way beyond the mat

I want to be healthy, strong, and feeling great for me – and my family.”

“So many unknowns with pregnancy – what can I do about this low-level anxiety?”

“I’m so busy taking care of everyone else, I don’t have time for ME.”

to help you become the “Ma” you want to be.

After teaching prenatal yoga for a decade, I knew that a weekly drop-in just wasn’t enough to keep us at our best.

My students left class feeling energized, spacious, grounded and happy.

In a couple days, anxiety, stress, aches and pains and old patterns had crept in again.

So I gathered my best teachers together, and we began filming our most transformative prenatal and mom practices.

And we started teaching our therapeutic, alignment-based yoga live online.

All Ob/Gyn approved (I started Ma Yoga as a Lifestyle Educator in the OB/Gyn Dept. at Kaiser Permanente), all safe for every trimester.

Now, any mom-to-be can prepare for labor in the comfort of their own living room.

Any mom can do yoga with her baby – or without, if she has a few minutes to herself.

Any one at all can enjoy aligning with your greatest possibilities – anytime.

Individualized, calming, balancing

Love Ma Yoga! It’s individualized, calming, balancing, strengthening and nurturing for both body and the nervous 1st-time mom soul.

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.

Best thing I could have done for myself

I started doing Ma Yoga when I was 16 weeks pregnant. It was the best thing I could have done for myself.

Such a rewarding experience

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.

Highly recommend

I highly recommend these classes 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.

Ma Yoga was a lifesaver

"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 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 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.

I could practice at home after my son went to bed

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 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

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.

Huge benefit to my life

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 wouldn’t be painting right now if I hadn’t done Happy Back

As a painter I often get back pain and I didn't understand why until I did this program. 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.

A Gift from the Universe!

I love that you provided encouragement to meditate regularly even if it’s only for a short time, And structure for short meditation sessions. This is hard to find! I find myself meditating 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.

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

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.

I love its flexibility

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.

Take a moment and breathe

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 (even unknowingly stressed) I have hard time breathing deeply.  A month ago I thought I was sick, but I've determined that it is simply how I am manifesting some fear.

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.
