I am beyond excited that we can have IN PERSON prenatal yoga classes again. I am jumping for JOY!
I has been teaching pre and post natal yoga classes since I was pregnant with my first daughter over 18 years ago. (can you believe I have two teenagers?) Pregnancy is a wonderful time to practice yoga; it is a wonderful way to stretch and strengthen as our bodies change. It is a perfect class for the beginner as well as the seasoned practitioner. Many women enjoy meeting new mamas and sharing stories. These classes are all about loving ourselves. They are about supporting one another! I acknowledge the wildness of motherhood which includes the joys and the sorrows! Yoga is a wonderful place to be during the wildness of these times! It is a wonderful place to practice loving our bodies and they change and shift in pregnancy and beyond!
These classes are about being patient with ourselves as our lives change and we grow into motherhood.

“I was blessed to meet Chantalle when she was pregnant with her second baby and was looking for a doula. I got to know her as a strong, wise and loving person and witness her gentle mothering spirit. When I became pregnant with my 3rd baby, I was more than excited to sign up for Chantalle’s prenatal yoga class. Each class was like a mini-retreat. Chantalle creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, always inviting us mamas-to-be to let go of worries or thoughts of the day and just be present with our babies. She is skilled at adapting yoga positions to accommodate the different sizes, comfort levels and pregnancy issues that each person brought to the table, while still challenging us to explore new sensations. Chantalle incorporates labour and birthing positions into the class, allowing us to try things out and gain strength to draw upon in labour. She shares her woman’s wisdom, always with humour, never with judgment. This was more than just a yoga class – it was a space to celebrate our blooming bodies, connect with other women, and learn. I always felt powerful, relaxed and refreshed after yoga with Chantalle, and I would recommend her class to anyone without hesitation.”
