Tulsa Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Fitness for the Body, Mind and Soul

Our Main Objectives in Class

  • A More Comfortable Pregnancy

    Low back & pelvic pain, round ligament pain, achey legs, sore feet, general fatigue, stress and more are super common pregnancy discomforts, and unfortunately, most expectant women will experience at least one of these issues during their pregnancy. But, the good news is that there is relief! Prenatal yoga is well documented to help ease the discomforts of pregnancy. We practice strength building postures to increase stamina and endurance. We incorporate stretching and mobility work to improve our range of motion in key areas in the body. We release tension, relax, and rejuvenate to decrease stress and anxiety. We focus extensively on the deep core, pelvic floor, posture, balancing, and functional movement. Our clients report fewer aches and pains even after just one class, and report feeling lighter, stronger, and more content as they continue to come to practice.

  • A More Efficient, Happier Birth

    While so much about childbirth is outside the sphere of control–and we regard no birth experience as superior to another–mental, emotional, and physical preparation can be critical in helping us achieve the outcome we all want–a healthy, happy mom and baby. Yoga can help by preparing your pelvic floor for delivery (more efficient pushing and less tearing!), building strength and mobility for a variety of birthing positions (movement is key in helping baby through the pelvis), improving stamina and endurance to make it through those rough moments (birth is like marathon!), breathing practice and mindfulness techniques to help you cope with intensity (fear begets tension which begets pain). Our classes are the perfect complement to your birth plan, and we’re confident that we will be a valuable asset in your journey.

  • A More Complete Recovery

    While you’ll never hear us talking about “getting your body back”–we think your body is IMPROVED by becoming a mother–we understand that women deal with very real issues after the incredible feat of growing and birthing a baby. Core dysfunction, incontinence, back and pelvic pain, general weakness and fatigue, anxiety and depression, and more are super common in new moms, so we’ve designed our classes to help reduce the likelihood and severity of those common complaints. Everything we do in class in “core-safe” so that we don’t exacerbate diastasis recti. We weave in pelvic floor strengthening and relaxation exercises throughout class. We teach stress coping and relief techniques that work in every facet of your life. Perhaps most importantly, we educate and empower our clients so they are prepared for the challenging road ahead.

  • Building Community and a Network of Support

    Becoming a parent is perhaps the single biggest life change most of us will ever experience. While incredibly enriching and rewarding, it can also be scary, isolating, and overwhelming. Our classes serve as a bastion of empowerment and support for our clients. For many, our classes are only time clients are surrounded by other women on the journey to and through motherhood. We cannot overstate how critical the support of other women can be! Additionally, we are plugged in to the wider birth community and know all the best doulas, specialist providers, and more. We’ve worked with hundreds of expectant women in our careers, and we have a wealth of tips, tricks, and support to offer. We are confident we can serve as an invaluable tool of connection and support in your journey!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • q-iconI don’t have any prior yoga experience and/or I’m not athletic or flexible. Can I do this class?

    Yes. This class is designed for women of all abilities. We refer to it as gently challenging. Unless you’ve been told by your care provider to avoid physical activity, this class is perfect for you, we promise. Since 2014, women of all shapes, sizes, and abilities have benefited from our classes.

  • q-iconHow do I join class?

    Drop-ins are always welcome. No appointment is necessary. Simply show up about ten minutes prior to class to fill out the registration form and get settled. We will greet you at the front desk and walk you through the set up, so don’t worry if you’re new to yoga and have no clue what to expect. Everyone is friendly and supportive!

  • q-iconIs it safe?

    The research on prenatal exercise in general, and prenatal yoga in particular, is clear: the real risk for pregnant women lies in avoiding physical activity, not in performing it. Our instructors are highly trained with over a decade of combined experience in working with expectant women. Every exercise we do in class is expertly designed with your safety, comfort, and benefit in mind. Additionally, we offer options and modifications for everything we do. Clients are encouraged to rest or modify whenever needed, and there is never any pressure to work outside of your comfort zone.

    Rest assured that doctors and midwives recommend our classes frequently. The safety and benefits of prenatal yoga with a qualified teacher are well documented. I’m confident that your care provider will be thrilled you’ve chosen prenatal yoga to keep fit during pregnancy.

  • q-iconAt what point in my pregnancy should I begin practicing yoga?

    While old wives tales unfortunately persist, there is no research that demonstrates any risk to exercising throughout pregnancy, from week four to forty+. There is no need to wait until the second trimester–though some moms find that nausea prohibits much movement–nor have you missed the boat if you’re later in pregnancy. In fact, you may find our classes to be just what the doctor ordered (literally!) if you’re experiencing the common aches and pains of late pregnancy. Today is truly the best day to start your prenatal yoga practice!

  • q-iconDo you have mats to borrow? What do I need to bring?

    We have mats to borrow free of charge and all the equipment you’ll need for safe, comfortable practice. We are Tulsa’s only prenatal specific fitness space, so every detail of our room is designed with safety, comfort, and benefit of expectant moms in mind. We recommend wearing clothes in which you can freely move, and please note that yoga is typically done barefoot, though some choose to wear socks. We also recommend bringing water to class, though we have bottles for sale, as well as a water fountain, if you forget.

What Do Moms-to-be Say About Our Classes?

"I attribute yoga as the sole reason that I felt good during my entire pregnancy and had a recovery that left the nurses and doctors bewildered (in a good way). Thanks Lisa!"

Katie S.

"I wanted to thank you for helping me make his birth an amazing experience. I managed to labor at home through the majority of my contractions. We headed to the hospital and I delivered an hour and a half later. I know there is no way I could have done that without all of the breathing practice we did in pre natal yoga. I really believe it was key to helping me meet my goals for a natural, unmedicated birth. Thank you!!!!"

S. Edwards

"I successfully had the VBAC I hope for! Thanks to the yoga which helped me mentally and physically prepare."

Julia D.

"Thank you for being such an amazing teacher! Your class was exactly what I needed! I'm hooked!"
