"I have worked with Jayme for the majority of my pregnancy. I took her group class, then moved into private sessions and completed her birthing workshop for couples. All of my experiences with Jayme have been extremely positive, helping me stay grounded as I navigate this precious journey. Her gentle and professional approach to yoga and meditation have helped me manage anxiety and stress, learn new breathing techniques, new postures, new strategies to communicate with my baby, and deepen connection with my partner. I’m ever grateful to Jayme and her yoga therapy methodology. I give her my highest recommendation."

"The birth was really fine and I was so calm and always thought about the things we learned in yoga class. I could smile all the time and I was so happy with that! I think I really trained my mind in your class! I gave a birth naturally too! Can't wait to see you in mom and baby yoga!" ~ Mako & Baby Mizuki
Mom and Baby Yoga is an integrated practice where both mom and baby benefit. Through meditation, breathing, and postures, yoga of sound, we learn how to be present to however you and baby are feeling in an open and accepting way. In class we will address our physical, mental and emotional needs. The intention of this class is to give parents tools to help them be happy, healthy and relaxed in their moment to moment life. This class is suitable for babies 6 weeks to crawling. No yoga experience required.
As a new mom, I sometimes find it difficult to balance caring for my baby while also taking care of myself. Mom and baby yoga helps me with this challenge of motherhood. Jayme leads moms through a gentle workout, reminding us to connect with our breath and our physical body, without forgetting baby! I find Jayme particularly skillful at incorporating the little ones into our yoga practice with a variety of stimulating and relaxing exercises depending on their moods and needs. The class is an enjoyable activity for both my son and I. - Mariana&baby Bence
The intention of Prenatal Yoga is to prepare for your labor and create the optimal gestation for your baby: through the power of presence, posture, breathing and voice vibration. Prenatal yoga is also a way to develop an understanding of what is happening on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Each week we introduce a specific theme that relates to pregnancy, for example: our mental states, the different stages of labour, being a parent. This class is an opportunity to let the go natural fear or expectations we may hold and move towards acceptance and courage. Sharing a space with other mother’s can feel extremely supportive. Prenatal yoga is suitable for any level of yoga. Second, third, fourth pregnancies welcome!
I thought I have done my homework in reading materials and watching videos on natural birthing to inform and prepare myself for labour, but still, i felt something was missing, i felt uncertain about how to handle the stress, worry about how to communicate with my husband, I had so many questions unanswered, etc. Jayme’s Birthing Workshop was able to build a very special bonding between my husband and I. We both felt ready for receiving our baby after the workshop. Jayme’s personal and professional experiences with motherhood is unique and heartfelt. It was also very nice to be around the glowing energy formed by all the expecting couples. I am grateful to share this anticipating moment with the other moms.
The Couples Birthing Workshop offer tools and support for mom, partner and baby to feel adequately prepare for their birthing experience. During this workshop we will learn about each stage of labor and there progression, simultaneously practicing, presence, postures, breathing, positive communication through, sound or voice, eyes, touch, listening and mental attitude. This practice encourages our natural ability to birth our babies. We will explore our medical choices as well. Understanding that there is no one right way to birth your baby.We will practice meditating on our true intentions, moving away from our natural fear and expectations that we may hold and move towards courage and love.Above all we will practice the essence of yoga which is the ability to develop awareness and be conscious of the direct experience of what is happening, this helps to take action and make decisions from a place of clarity and ease.Instilling tools that will be invaluable as a parent and for the rest of your life!
