prenatal yoga

drop-in weekly

Pre-natal yoga offers a nurturing and safe experience for pregnant women that is designed to promote the health and well-being of both mother and child. Classes include postures, breathing exercises and contemplations specifically chosen to ease a woman’s body and mind through each stage of pregnancy and prepare it for child-birth, while allowing an opportunity to focus on and cherish the new life within.

Thank you for remembering that your class time is 1 hour. While we understand that the social aspect is amazing, keep it to a respectable length as the teacher needs to wait for each of you before they can leave. (Maximum 30 minutes post class time please)

Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot complete the 8 class card due to pregnancy complications, we will happily put your remaining classes on account to use for other regular scheduled Samatva drop-in classes. (these CAN ALSO be used for Baby & Me Yoga later). The 8 class card has a 6 month expiry otherwise and a fee is applicable to extend past this date. Alternately you can drop-in for $22 per session.
Not at all! Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga classes at Samatva run weekly and you can attend on a drop-in basis. We do, however have the option for you to prebook your space in any particular class. If you would like to reserve your space you must arrive 10 minutes before class or we may give it up to another waiting!
Yes you can! Your pass card is valid for 6 months from your first class. All passes can be used in both the pre & postnatal programs as well as regular studio drop-in classes. (please see BIRTH above for more info in our extension policy)
As with all drop-in classes at Samatva, we do require a minimum of 3 people to run a drop-in session. Grab your support to come along (they don’t need to be pregnant) and please remember we will do our best to assess class times and amend our schedule in these cases.
No you don’t! We are happy to welcome regular studio passes/memberships to be used to attend these specialty classes. As this is a premium practice, we will be requiring $4 additional each class for participants with a regular class card without pre & postnatal passes.

NOTE: Infinity membership holders attend without any additional fees.

I did my 200 hr teacher training with Don & Amba Stapleton, Yoga for Childbirth with Dorothy Guerra, as well as some amazing workshops and courses with Amy Ippoliti, Natasha Rizopoulos, Maria Garre, Seane Corn, Michelle Cormack, Paul Grilley and Michael Stone. I practice to create space both inside of my physical body as well as my mind. I practice to bring more awareness, connection and clarity into every thing that comes to me. I practice because no matter what state I'm in when I arrive on my mat, I always leave feeling so good, so alive.

I love challenging my body and finding peace along the way: what a beautiful juxtaposition between intensity and calm this can be! Checking in with my mind and body is important to me so that I can fully enjoy other pursuits in my life including long distance running, ultimate frisbee, and general fun-having! As far as teaching yoga, to open the door of yoga for others is a blessing: I love facilitating the learning about oneself that yoga brings about.

Ahhh, this fine craft...my love affair with breath and movement began as a toddler, and it took form as an uncontrollable desire to swing, sway, dip, dive and lengthen. From the age of three on i was graced with a natural innate sort of discipline to study the body and its capabilities through classical ballet mostly, and many other styles of dance... but, ballet was my love. I danced, I studied, I traveled and I taught...this at 15 yrs old revealed the natural teacher in me, and so I became a dance teacher! Movement connected me to my soul, this was very clear, so again very naturally at 18yrs i began sitting with myself, meditating i'd guess you'd call it...i felt i needed it, and it interested me...and it worked! In very tiny doses it too showed me another way of feeling whole and alive, like dancing had done. On my own, in the country i began to incorporate some yoga postures into my days and i found myself at dance auditions going off into a corner to do Tree and Triangle and breathe deep to calm and prepare myself. I fell in love with this tool and felt it to be such a gift. By accident i stumbled on a teacher in Kingston who offered training and without question i emptied my bank account and learned! Since that day almost 10 years ago i have been leading classes that are based in and for "YOU" the student, in hopes that you too catch a fleeting or long lasting moment of joy, connection, spirit, or simply a love for extension, movement or stillness. Deep roots, foundation and a lot of love, Namaste
