Prior to stepping full time in to teaching yoga, I worked as a labor and delivery nurse in Austin, TX for 15 years. I am grateful for the opportunity to blend my experience as a Labor and Delivery nurse with the teachings of yoga.

Sarah is an amazing Mama and yoga teacher and has been teaching pre and postnatal yoga as well as training prenatal yoga teachers here in Austin for over 15 years you can learn more about her and her offering at motheryoga.com
I also teach a childbirth preparation program I have written known as
PREPARED is a different kind of birth preparation, It isn't just preparation for childbirth, it is an offering of preparation and support for motherhood.
The curriculum is rooted in the wisdom and teachings of yoga utilizing the practices of breath work, mindfulness, meditation and movement intertwined with the knowledge and experience I hold as a labor and delivery nurse. In each class we dive deeper into the teachings of yoga and intricacies of the body. Learning, practicing and exploring how we can utilize these understandings to support the whole self - mind, body and spirit - through pregnancy, childbirth and the experience of motherhood.
In each class you can expect to build strength and bring ease to the physical body through movement and breath practices. Foster your mind-body connection through meditation and mindfulness. Gain an understanding of the process of labor both scientifically and energetically and deepen your understanding of how the lifestyle teachings of yoga can support the whole of the motherhood experience, including childbirth.
