Hi I’m Jessica.
When I became a mom, I was shocked at how unprepared I was.
It wasn’t just about giving up weekend trips. It was giving up my old social life, showers, my sense of myself as someone who could complete a task.
And as a long-time yoga teacher, I never thought I would give up my yoga practice. But I just did not feel like I wanted to leave the house for over two hours.
I was too exhausted to talk myself through a yoga practice, and too busy to find time to meditate.
Eventually, I created Ma Yoga® to address the challenges of this life transition. Thousands of moms have now enjoyed this unique method of yoga that focuses on what moms need:
First, we’re taking care of another being who depends on us, and our time is not our own. We need practices of different lengths that fit into the “in-betweens”, and we need to be able to stop and start depending on whether baby needs us.
Second, it took us 9 months to get here, and it’s going to take about the same to start recognizing our body again. Meanwhile, we’re carrying baby around and bending over most of the day. We need a practice that takes into account what we’ve got going on physically, and helps us heal, build core strength, and re-align our body.
Our bodies are changing and it’s not about “getting the pose” – it’s about learning to trust what we feel. And we need to feel nurtured and supported when we make choices that feel right for us.
