What does the word "yoga" mean to you?

Does it mean the ability to hold a complicated pose for 20 minutes, or to stand on your head, or to possess contortionist-like flexibility, or to spend several months at an ashram in silent meditation?

Those who practice yoga may do some or all of the above. But what is yoga really about? It's an ancient, Eastern science of optimal health and well-being of mind, body, heart and spirit. It was brought to the west in the 1970's, and Anne is passionate about helping mamas relate to it, make it their own, and reap the huge benefits it offers. 

The physical practice is only the tip of the vast yoga iceberg. But it's a vehicle to help you connect with yourself, learn how to be mindful, and slow down and relax yourself. When done properly and regularly, it enhances strength, flexibility and balance on many levels, inside and out. Yoga is helpful at any 
stage of life
, and particularly useful during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.

Did you know...
Many asanas are named after animals and other things found in nature, for there is much we can learn from them. So stand tall and strong, firmly rooted deeply into the ground. Reach those branches up to the sky and sway with the winds of change, remaining strong while you are working your way into "tree pose"!

Mommy & Me Yoga Classes

As a certified prenatal and postpartum yoga instructor & midwife I would like to make yoga more available to mamas. I love teaching private classes on Skype or private home / small group classes for those unable to get to a yoga studio, in addition to actual classes at the studios local to me!!
