An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Saturday, repeating until December 12, 2020
Yoga is a safe, gentle and grounding practice for baby growing mamas. Pairing breath with movement helps build body awareness and acceptance, creating deeper connection with a transforming body. Prenatal classes are designed to strengthen the muscles used in labor, to stretch muscles that get stiff and sore from lack of mobility and to encourage rest & relaxation.
Yoga offers a calm & relaxing opportunity to connect inward. Connecting with a deep, full & expansive breath. Connecting with your growing babe and most importantly, connecting with your authentic self.
Build your mama community and connect with other women navigating their personal pregnancy journey. All classes include 30 mins of conscious conversation and the likelihood of making a new mom friend. On a monthly basis we have guest professionals from the community join class to share on a motherhood focused topic or modality.

About Megan McMichael:
The Okanagan has my heart. Having lived here for nearly my entire life, I have a deep appreciation + love for this land. My days change with the seasons; however, there are a few constant passions in my life. I am a lover of learning, constantly devouring knowledge through podcasts, blogs, traditional + audio books. I’m a lover of memoirs, forever interested in how others live out their days in this wild world. I appreciate all things cozy, including warm mugs of tea, handknit blankets + wood burning stoves. Most of my days include bits of nature, poetry, connection, movement, music, self-exploration + snacks.
Slowly throughout the years, yoga found me when I needed it most. Beginning my journey in 2007 during a time of stress + trauma. I didn’t know much about the practice, all I knew was how I felt after class. The effects of yoga on my body + mind were exactly what I needed to heal and grow. Slowly throughout the years Yoga proved to be a vital and important part of my life. In 2011 I embarked on my own yoga adventure, completing my 300 hour yoga teacher training.
In 2015 I was blessed with my greatest gift, my son Cameron. My transition into motherhood was beautiful + challenging. The birth of my son and my entrance into motherhood ignited my passion to learn more about prenatal and postnatal health + movement. Mandala Mamas is an expression of who I am and what I wish to offer the world. My intention is to gently guide mamas to strengthen + develop their own inner wisdom and power. As well as, to offer an accepting space for mamas to connect and build community.
