What Past Prenatal Students Have Said:
"Your classes, advice and help over the past 7 months has been so helpful. The labor and delivery was very smooth and I thank you for that! I couldn't have done it without you. I already miss prenatal yoga. By far one of my favorite things about being pregnant." ~Jackie
I heard your voice in my head throughout my whole labor and it really gave me strength. Our baby had her hand over her face, so it took longer to push, but I felt strong and encouraged by all of the breathing and pelvic floor exercises we had done. I can’t thank you enough. ~Julia
Prenatal yoga class was one of my favorite things throughout this pregnancy. I always looked forward to it and felt so good during and after! I appreciated all the insight and information you offered and the personal attention. I don't think my experience would have been the same with just any teacher. ~Liz
I looked forward to yoga class every week and believe that it was a large part of my pregnancy going so well, not just physically but also because of the emotional support and personal connections. ~Heather
I have to thank you so much for inspiring us in prenatal yoga and helping to make this time in our life extra meaningful. At the end of the delivery, the nurse couldn’t get over how much I released myself to the whole process and it was you who helped me to prepare for that. ~Christa
I can’t tell you how much the breathing exercises helped me during the pushing part of labor. I was able to push him out after just 1 hour. Also, the pelvic exercises really helped me to avoid back labor. Your practice and all the services you offer are truly incredible. ~Grace
