Michelle G.

Birth Doula Newborn/Parenting Educator Yoga Instructor Support Group Facilitator
I support women through their pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum recovery by teaching prenatal and postpartum yoga, well care workshops, and by offering birth support. As a young girl growing up in NM I found that riding horses gave me a sense of calm that I later found on my yoga mat. I began practicing yoga in 2000, since my daughter was born in 1998, I had not yet discovered how yoga would enhance my pregnancy. With my son’s birth in 2003 I could tell the benefits of yoga as my pregnancy progressed. At this point I knew I wanted to share my experience with other women. This is why I’ve dedicated myself to teaching prenatal & postpartum yoga, lead well care workshops, & offer birth support. I love helping mothers connect with their babies through yoga and watching babies & children respond to its soothing calm and peacefulness. I’ve finally found my passion in assisting women through the full spectrum of well care from pregnancy to recovery in the postpartum period.

Jess E.

Yoga Instructor
I offer yoga and mindfulness meditation for women who are trying to become pregnant, are expecting and new moms. As you navigate this journey, the techniques I teach show you how to stay present, be strong (both physically and mentally), self-care, and remaining grounded throughout this profoundly incredible experience. My path to yoga started as an undergrad when I took my first yoga class, and as cliche as it may sound, I was hooked; I enjoyed the gentle flow from pose to pose as well as the inner peace I felt at the end of class by being able to let go of things. When I began thinking about becoming a mom, I started a prenatal yoga teacher training, so I could become more informed about the whole experience.. I wasn't sure if I would ever teach classes. It took me nearly three years to become pregnant, and included multiple interventions: IUIs, IVFs, weekly acupuncture, mindfulness meditation, and especially yoga for fertility, which I researched and taught myself. Yoga offered me gentle movement and a safe place to be with what was going on. After going through this very intense and emotional journey to become a mama, I decided to finish my Prenatal yoga teacher training in order to offer moms-to-be guidance on their journey to motherhood.

Krissy S.

Pregnancy Coach Yoga Instructor Fitness Coach Support Group Facilitator Health Coach
To be totally transparent, I would rather talk about my kids than me any day. Here is something that is not a secret, I am a passionate mama. Here’s a secret, I love it and hate it at times too. Some days, I have felt totally vital and of complete service but I have also felt drained and lost in my role as a mama and a teacher. It is a balancing act. A daily check in of where am I? How am I? What can I do to set myself in alignment to what matters most, each day. That is the key. Each day offers us something new.

Rachel W.

Yoga Instructor Health Coach Fitness Coach
I’m an expert in postnatal fitness. Pelvic pain, hip pain, wrist pain, tearing, prolapse, diastasis—women come to me with all of these injuries. You don’t come out of pregnancy and birth uninjured. Using my extensive knowledge of postpartum physical therapy and fitness, I will teach you how to heal your body from the inside out. After giving birth to my first daughter, I was in your shoes—frustrated with a body that didn’t feel like my own. You’d think that if anyone’s body would snap back into shape it would be a yoga teacher’s! And by many standards, I did bounce back: Three weeks after giving birth I was taking my favorite boutique fitness classes and wearing my pre-pregnancy clothes. Internally, it was a different story. I had injured wrists, achy hips, lower back pain, and a hollow feeling where my core used to be. With more than 20 years of yoga, Eastern medicine, and fitness knowledge under my belt, I knew as much as there was to know about healing and anatomy...but that knowledge wasn’t putting my body back together. It is a tragic public health failure that women are left alone, without accurate education or resources on how to heal our postnatal bodies. So I embarked on my own quest to fill the postnatal void for myself, and that led to my helping women everywhere. I met with a ton of pelvic health experts and physical therapists. I dove back into restorative yoga, and studied the links between the nervous system, relaxation, strength and stability. I shifted from hardcore workouts to balance-focused ones. While I love a sweaty workout, I needed to heal my postpartum body before getting back to that level of intensity. I pulled my meditation cushion out of the closet, deepening my mind-body connection and listening to my body’s feedback on the work I was doing. Not only was my body healing and strengthening, my mind was sharpening, becoming more focused and happier. By scheduling consistent time with myself and my body, I was not only achieving the recovery I yearned for, I was also developing a richer relationship between “me,” the woman, and “me,” the wife, mother, entrepreneur and world citizen. Finally, I started to thrive. In the midst of my recovery, I knew I wasn’t the only woman who was felt paralyzed and unable to heal herself. So I created something brand new: Revolution Motherhood is a fitness method that teaches women how to understand their postnatal injuries, and guides them in making a full recovery from pregnancy and childbirth—safely and lovingly. As new mothers, we are busier than we’ve ever been. Exercise is often the thing that drops off our never-ending to-do lists. Yet you need exercise—to heal, strengthen and understand yourself, and to figure out how to do this new thing called motherhood! You can no longer accept life in a dysfunctional body. You are starting a whole new relationship with yourself. Motherhood is the opportunity of your lifetime—physically, emotionally, spiritually. Everything has been realigned and needs rebuilding. Developing a healthy relationship to your new body—caring for it, healing it, tending to it—is the magic step that transcends the fatigue and fear. From there, you have the space to offer your unique gifts to your children, yourself, and the world. With Revolution Motherhood, I take everything I’ve learned while recovering from three pregnancies and share it with you. I make your “me time” meaningful by healing and strengthening your body, and by giving you a roadmap to your own mental well-being and happiness.

Chantal T.

Childbirth Educator Yoga Instructor Birth Doula Postpartum Doula Pregnancy Coach Birth Counselor Health Coach Fitness Coach Newborn/Parenting Educator
I am an active birth active doula, childbirth educator and pre/postnatal yoga teacher and have been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003. What I have found from going to hundreds of births is that women are often under prepared for the 2nd Stage, the pushing part of labor. Which may contribute to many hours of ineffective pushing, preventable tearing, medical interventions or sometimes a cesarean birth. I developed my push prep class to help inform and prepare for effective pushing and optimal recovery. I am passionate about helping moms prepare both mind and body for a positive birth experience and want to help them move through their pregnancy with ease and strength and to be able to make a full recovery postpartum. I am a Certified Childbirth Educator (LAMAZE and Childbirth Education of Metropolitan New York, of which I am a current board member) and Doula. I am also Certified in both Pre/Postnatal Yoga and is a Certified MUTU® Systems Pro.
