Increase your strength and flexibility while bonding with baby in our Mom and Baby Yoga classes. These classes are specifically designed for the postpartum body with sequencing focused on safely restoring the core and pelvic floor, building upper body strength, and stretching the shoulders, neck and back.
Expect a playful and baby-friendly environment where the babies are involved in some of the class (if they so choose), and diaper changes and feedings are welcomed. No yoga experience is necessary. Yoga mats are provided free of charge.
*Drop in for any yoga class. We will punch your card at the beginning of each class.

We’ve loved our Tuesday and Thursday classes with Sarah! She’s trained in Pilates as well so it’s a challenging class if you want it to be, but she also provides options if you just aren’t feeling it that day.
I attended the Friday yoga class with Sarah Rodd from about 3 and a half months until 6 months postpartum. Sarah is an excellent instructor – the work that she did with me really helped improve my core strength and pelvic stability. I was a bit nervous about attending a group class at the beginning because my baby isn’t the type who can be content on a mat with toys for a prolonged period, but Sarah always offered to pick her up if needed so that I could get a full workout. The yoga classes were truly a highlight of my maternity leave, and helped get me back into shape quickly.
I’m so glad that I decided to try this class. The instructor is very accommodating and understanding of your unique needs as a mother. The space is perfect for my very active baby. It’s all padded and there are toys for her to play with. I’ve told several other moms about the class because I’m so happy with it.
I’d never done yoga before having a baby and I was quite apprehensive about attending my first class... now I’m nearly 20 classes in and I LOVE it! Both instructors are sensitive to post-natal recovery needs, and they have helped me to get back into shape (more or less!) in a safe and fun way. They’re really relaxed about crying babies, hungry babies, and dirty diapers. “Do what you need to do” is their mantra, and they mean it. I can’t recommend these classes enough!
Had a great time at this class! The instructor made special modifications for me based on how I was feeling and I got a great workout!
