Virtual prenatal yoga is now on the schedule! Prenatal yoga is adapted for moms-to-be and taught by some of our most experienced teachers. These classes will take into account the pregnant body and offer movements that are nourishing, safe, and supportive.
About the teachers:
Paulina, originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, is a mother, a certified yoga instructor, a former professional dancer, and a Masters in Education graduate. Her passion for yoga on and off the mat makes her an avid student and an enthusiastic teacher. She has been practicing yoga and meditation since 2000, and is a graduate of a 3-year Iyengar training, Yoga Garden’s 500 Hr Yoga Alliance and Prenatal TT Programs. Paulina is also a certified Relax and Renew Restorative yoga instructor.
Alexandra Rossi, ERYT500 and Paris native, shares the practice of yoga with everyone, from children to adults, in an honest and playful way. Her personal practice has taken her from therapeutic based Anusara Yoga to a more restorative practice, influenced by Judith Lasater, Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra.After many years of teaching, she realized that her true calling is to empower women at every stage of their lives. She is greatly influenced by Jane Austin and by Gurmukh’s teachings on prenatal yoga. She is now convinced that women need a mix of strengthening and restorative practices to accommodate the changing nature of their bodies. Alexandra’s classes combine music, and healing touch with buddhist philosophy. She is known for her skillful and intuitive hands-on assists.
Jenn’s yoga journey began over 15 years ago when she took a weekly class as an antidote to her track workouts as a competitive runner. She loved how yoga allowed her to be in tune with her body in a different way than running did, while also encouraging compassion rather than always pushing the body to go harder.
She has studied Sivananda, Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative, and Prenatal yoga, and her classes are structured for careful alignment while encouraging students to use breath awareness to guide the body through a moving meditation.
