WE SPECIALIZE IN OFFERING HOLISTIC SUPPORT FOR EXPECTING MOTHERS THROUGH YOGA, MASSAGE, AND ACUPUNCTURE.

We have a pregnancy dream team of highly trained, experienced practitioners and mothers ready to support you with everything you need beyond the doctor’s office. Once your baby arrives, bring them to practice with you in a community of like-minded parents.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal yoga is for all students, including beginners, from conception until the day you deliver.  Classes are taught by specially trained teachers and designed to deepen your awareness of pregnancy and prepare you physically and emotionally for birth.

Postnatal Yoga

In these baby-friendly classes, we bond with the baby and practice postures that help restore alignment and tone, and provide relief from lifting, carrying, and nursing. This class is ideal after your six week check-up. For babies newborn to pre-crawling. All parents welcome!

Pregnancy Massage

Massage can ease the physical discomfort that may accompany pregnancy. We use a soft body pillow to support you in a comfortable side-lying position. Our specially-trained therapists concentrate on the areas of your body that need extra attention.

Acupuncture

Jamie Goodman, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, is available to assist you with preconception, pregnancy and postpartum care. The Chinese medicine treatment program is very successful in helping parents achieve healthy conception, decrease miscarriage, reduce nausea, fatigue, and anxiety during pregnancy, turn breech babies, prepare for and encourage labor, and aid postpartum recovery.
