PRE / POSTNATAL

Partner Prenatal Yoga: Preparation for Labor and Birth

“Amy’s partner prenatal class was very helpful in learning positions and techniques for keeping Aleks comfortable during labor.  We both really enjoyed the class and recommend it to anyone  who is looking for an alternative to standard birthing classes. ”
~ Grahm L.

“Amy’s partner pre-natal workshop was extremely helpful, we learned important listening and communication techniques as well as many different postures and support poses that will be helpful for both of us during labor. And Amy is very attentive and encouraging. We wholeheartedly recommend her class to moms-to-be and partners!”
~ Mia & James M.

“The partner prenatal class was a really nice chance to spend some quiet time connecting with my husband.  It allowed us to slow down and enjoy some time being together and also helped us to focus on our baby and the big changes that were about to occur in our lives.  We also learned some great partner postures and ways my husband could support me during labor.”
~ Morgan J. G.

“My husband & I attended Amy’s Partner Prenatal Yoga Workshop in preparation for the birth of our first child.  I didn’t know what to expect, but I was feeling pretty overwhelmed and anxious at the prospect of a natural birth, so we decided to educate ourselves about yoga and breath work as ways to manage pain.  I loved the way Amy began the class with warm-ups and exercises geared at connecting us as a couple.  That was a theme throughout the class– to use each other as supports, to communicate in ways that will allow both of us to experience the birth fully, to allow the experience to bring us closer together.  The concrete things we learned—breath work, listening to and trusting my own body, vocalization, the use of props and supported postures, massage techniques that my husband can use to help me relax– all of these tools have helped both of us to feel so much more confident and excited about the birthing process.”
~ Sarah & Ben L.

“I’ve been looking forward to our new arrival from day one, but after taking this class I’m even more excited because of the confidence I’ve gained. While ‘Pre-natal Partner Workshop’ certainly is a perfectly fitting and accurate title, it could just as easily have been called ‘Take a few hours out of your day to re-connect with your partner and learn all sorts of useful, fun, and occasionally hilarious ways you can support her both before and during labor, to help build your confidence and reduce your baby-related anxiety all around.’ – Matthew B.

 

Prenatal / Postnatal Yoga 

“Amy’s prenatal yoga class was fantastic! The class environment was supportive and fun and I used a lot of what we learned in class to help me during labor.  Amy gives enough modifications that you can make the class as challenging as you want or as relaxing as you need.  It was also great just to meet other pregnant ladies!”      ~ B. R.

“I’m so happy I had the opportunity to be part of Amy’s class.  I was able to practice the postures I learned in the class at home on my own when I would wake up feeling stiff and uncomfortable in the morning, which was so helpful.  I enjoyed learning which postures were helpful specifically for pregnant women and also appreciated the opportunity to check in weekly with other moms-to-be: what a nice sense of community.  In addition to the physical benefits of yoga, the breathing techniques and meditation in motion really helped me to become centered and relaxed, which helped me tremendously during labor, as well as in my postpartum adjustment period.”    ~ M. G.
“After many sleepless nights and a constant pain caused by carrying my little one, postnatal yoga class always brings me back to equilibrium, both, mentally and physically. At the same time, I am able to connect with other moms and share this wonderful experience. I love Amy’s baby yoga class so much that I simply adjusted my work schedule around it.”   ~ A. Z.

 

Empowered Childbirth

“We wanted to extend our sincere thanks for all your time and energy these past few weeks during our childbirth classes.  The information we received was not only extremely helpful, but brought to the forefront an intense feeling of empowerment for the birth of our first child!  We are very grateful to have been a part of such a wonderful educational environment with a pure sense of trust and understanding for each couples wishes and desires throughout there own process.” ~ Matt and Anna R.
