“This program is so empowering for all women not just those that are pregnant but especially for those mamas to be. I highly recommend this course to anyone working in the prenatal realm and/or are pregnant themselves; the content is so abundant and so awesome! I learned such valuable information by such educated and experienced ladies that I cannot wait to implement not only in my upcoming birth of my first child but also in my teaching. High five to this program :)”
Meet Your Instructors
As a doula I am committed to helping moms-to-be experience the birth they envision. I am excited to share with you the tools I use, whether mom expresses a desire for meditation or medication.
After volunteering for two years in the Labor and Delivery Department at Cedars-Sinai, I understand hospital policies and work within them to advocate for a delivery that aligns with the desires of mom-to-be.
Yoga is another important tool I use to help moms achieve their birthing and postpartum goals. I am a Certified Ma Yoga® /RPYT Instructor, and have additional certifications in breath work, pre/postnatal nutrition, hypnobirthing and lactation.
As a postpartum doula I also help moms with successful breastfeeding, connective bonding with baby, and management of daily life in this new and challenging phase. All of the postpartum benefits will also be infused with support in self care.
Nurturing self-care is at the core of Ma Yoga Living.
It is an honor to be sharing the Ma birth journey with you.
In 2003 I started teaching prenatal yoga, and I’ve been passionate about it ever since. I became a birth doula and then a postpartum doula, and I like to think of my prenatal yoga class as therapeutic labor prep. Everything we do is usable during labor, and afterward as a mom. In addition to Mom and Baby yoga, moms need these practices to heal, calm their nerves and energize.
I love to create a safe space for us to empty our basket and empower, educate, and share with each other about pregnancy, yoga, resources, motherhood, our bodies and labor. In our online course we support moms-to-be and those who nurture them by playing, learning, and growing together.
Ma Yoga’s principles and practices help women find their deeper truth along the way, and receive both inner and outer support. I’m excited to share these sacred steps with you!
I loved all of the information offered in this course! It reminded me what impact we can have as Mamas and having the necessary tools and resources is so important.
I would absolutely recommend this class for anyone who has pregnant students or clients. It’s not just how to apply philosophy and asana, it’s a lot about how to get the conversations going and create community.
I feel more confident, and more informed and like I’ve been teaching prenatal longer than I have because I’ve been in these classes and these conversations. It’s a wealth of information I can pull from!
I feel more confident teaching prenatal and knowing I have all the stuff we talked about in the eCoursebook so I can go back and reference each section.
These are topics you don’t really talk about with people who aren’t postpartum or teaching it. It’s a very specific time in your life and it was good able to reconnect and get back those feelings.
It was so nice to be in that space, to feel supported and remember we’re not alone.
