My Teaching Style

Everyone tends to keep such busy lifestyles. My hope is that during class we can take the time we need to breathe together, relax and allow ourselves the opportunity to listen to your own bodies. Class is also a special time for participants to bond with their babies. Raising children is one of the most challenging (and rewarding!) adventures. I carve out time in each class to get to know one another so we can build our own support network. A strong community will get us through each step of the journey!

Experience

I have a bachelors degree in elementary education with advanced degrees in Montessori Education and Educational Leadership. I have Montessori training for children ages 0-12, and it was through this training that I was inspired to pursue my doula training, followed by yoga training and then specifically the prenatal yoga training. I have been practicing yoga and mindful meditation for six years, and love sharing these passions with the prenatal community.

Favorite Pose

My favorite part of each class is settling in. Practicing mindful meditation can improve our ability to relax and concentrate, and stop the ongoing chatter in our minds. Paying attention to our breath can be so helpful, particularly during labor and birth.
