Tulsa Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal Fitness for the Body, Mind and Soul

A Quick Message from Lisa:

 

Welcome to Tulsa Prenatal Yoga!

Hello! My name is Lisa Pierce. I am a certified yoga instructor, prenatal/postnatal specialist, and I have a passion for empowering moms! As the owner of Tulsa Prenatal Yoga, I have been using yoga to help women through pregnancy, birth, and beyond since 2011.

I believe in the unique power of prenatal yoga because of my own experience and that of the hundreds of women with whom I've had the privilege of working. Moms are the most incredible people in the world, and it is my dream to help each and every one discover her true power through the practice of yoga.

Our Main Objectives in Class

Nothing we do in class is arbitrary or mindless; Every exercise has been carefully constructed with these main goals in mind

  • Strengthen your core

    A weak, tight core is at center of nearly all pregnancy discomfort, and can also play a big role in how smoothly your delivery goes. And of course, it matters big time for your postpartum recovery. What do we mean by “core?” We mean your deep core—the muscles whose job it is stabilize the body. We’re talking transverse abdominals, ilio-psoas, pelvic floor, glutes, and others. We’re definitely NOT talking about your six pack!

  • Steady Your Breath

    We all have an instinctive understanding about how breathing affects our state of mind. It’s safe to say that you’ve never advised a panicked friend to breathe faster or more shallow in order to calm down. No, you’ve suggested that your friend slow down and deepen their breath. Our classes take that very basic concept to the next level, giving you the tools to stay in control of your breath—and in control of your state of mind—no matter what is thrown at you…even contractions!

  • Deepen Your Squat

    Weak, tight hips are the other biggest culprit in pregnancy discomfort, and, just like a underdeveloped core, can be detrimental to the birthing process. We know from research that the most efficient way for baby to descend during labor is when mom is in a healthy, deep squat position. We also know that the strength and mobility of the muscles and joints that make deep squatting possible are crucial for overall vitality, pregnant or not.

  • Building Confidence & Eradicating Fear

    So much of what holds us back from having the experiences we desire in life isn’t physical. Fear, feelings of inadequacy, inhibition, and more are often at the heart of our biggest disappointments. While we NEVER regard one kind of birth as superior to another, we want you to feel empowered in whatever decisions you ultimately make. Eradicating fear, shame, and insecurity is one of our biggest, and perhaps most challenging, objectives.

After years of working hands-on with pregnant and postnatal moms, as well as staying up to date with the latest research, we believe that these guiding objectives create the best outcomes for the most women. However, it’s definitely not all we do!

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few frequently asked questions from our clients

  • 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. I 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, I promise. Women of all shapes, sizes, and abilities have benefited from our classes. I promise you will not be the first overweight/inflexible/older/whatever momma to join our classes.

  • q-iconHow do I join class?

    Drop ins are always welcome. No appointment necessary. Just show up about 10 minutes prior to class to fill out the registration form and get settled. I will walk you through the set up so no worries if you’re new to yoga and have no clue what to expect. Everyone is friendly and supportive.

  • q-iconIs it safe?

    The yoga we offer is safe and beneficial for virtually all healthy pregnant women. In over five years of teaching hundreds of clients, I have never had an injury in class, a preterm labor, or any pregnancy complication brought on by yoga. However, because each pregnancy is unique, I strongly recommend chatting with your doctor or midwife about physical activity before joining class.

    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?

    The earlier the better, but it’s also never too late to start. No matter if you’re in your fourth week or your fortieth, TODAY is the best day to start your practice.

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!"

We'd Love To Have You

We teach safe, accessible yoga postures to prepare your body for the work of labor and ease the physical discomforts of pregnancy. We'll show you how to use your breath to remain calm, clear, and steady no matter what you're experiencing--a crucial skill when facing an event as powerful as childbirth! We are knowledgeable about pregnancy, birth, and the decisions you'll face along the way, and we'll encourage and support you no matter your plans. Last but not least, our classes provide many women a community of other mothers they can't find anywhere else.

Tulsa Prenatal Yoga's classes are the perfect exercise for pregnant women because we address the WHOLE mother--body, mind, and soul.

Please, don’t just take my word for it. Ask your prenatal care provider how crucial it is to have support for your journey and to physically, mentally, and emotionally prepare for the big day!
