We remember our birth forever.
Yoga helps us make it an empowering memory.

In this transformative 6-week online course, we will journey through labor using yoga as our guide.

In addition to exploring the pro’s and con’s of all the choices around childbirth, the stages of labor and postartum, you’ll also learn yoga postures, alignment, mudras and meditations for an empowering birth.

As a yogi, you can come to understand pregnancy, birth, and motherhood not just as a physical and emotional event, but as a spiritual journey that has the potential to shift us into our highest potential as human beings – or our “Ma” Self.

Stay connected to your highest, goddess, “Ma” Self.

Through the lens of yoga, this journey offers incredible opportunities for growth in the areas of self-connection, presence, embodiment, relationships, and letting go.

What you’ll learn:

  • How yoga philsophy applies to the choices we have around birth, such as birth locations and interventions 
  • Practices to handle fear in labor
  • When we really need strength and where it comes from
  • Mudras, meditations, and breathwork for different mindsets
  • Preeclampsia, Gestational Diabetes and other common conditions
  • Yoga for postpartum
  • and much, much more!

Meet Your Instructors

Melanie Wachsman

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.

Blessings, Melanie

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!

with love,

Lauren is fantastic! She walks you through a yoga practice ideal for pregnant women and gives you tons of advice to help you stay healthy through your pregnancy and prepare your body and mind to deliver. I could not be more pleased with her as my prenatal yoga instructor for our first child. She has mommas coming back for their second and third pregnancy which speaks volumes.

I was really inspired by Lauren’s analogies and visualizations. That is something I have taken as an additional bonus from Lauren and need to increase my repertoire. Really looking forward to seeing the classes online and completing the final section of the certification.
