About the Instructor

Sandi Smith-Grove is a Licensed Midwife, Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT200) and a prenatal educator. She began her work with mamas-to-be in 1992, the same time she began practicing yoga. She combines two of her passions, yoga and serving expectant mamas, in her Yoga for Pregnancy and Birth workshops.

She believes that the female body is strong and powerful, yet benefits from nurturing and compassion, especially during the season of gestation and change. She began studying with Diane Valentine as part of a healing regime after back surgery, and has completed her 200 hour teaching certification at The Yoga & Movement Center.

She received her certification in Prenatal Yoga from Jane Austin; her Yoga for Healthy Aging certification from Baxter Bell, MD, and completed a Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction program with Nancy Bardacke, CNM. She has integrated yoga and mindfulness principles into her childbirth education classes.

When she is not working or practicing, you can find her in the garden, on the trail, in one of her women’s groups, or reading a good book.

Congratulations! Your amazing body nurtured and grew your baby and you gave birth. Now it’s time to reconnect with your body, grow the connection with your baby, and discover the supportive circle of mamas in the community.  Join this gentle yoga class where we will ease tension, restore strength and flexibility, and regain tone in the pelvic floor. This all level class is open to mamas and their pre-crawling babies. No yoga experience required. 

Mom & Baby Postpartum Yoga Class

Prenatal Partners Yoga Workshop

Open to mama-to-be and her primary Birth Partner, an all level workshop to help prepare for labor and birth.

Yoga can be an essential component in remaining grounded, calm and present during birth and beyond.  Our workshop begins with a gentle yoga sequence for mama and her partner. We’ll work with the breath and poses for strength, flexibility and opening. Class ends with a deep relaxation for all. Along the way we’ll add in effective and comforting poses for pregnancy and labor, massage for mama, and affirmations for both. 

All trimesters and birth philosophies welcome, no yoga experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in easily.

No yoga experience required. 

CLASS AND WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Restorative Yoga Workshop

for New & Expectant Moms 

An afternoon of rest designed for expectant mamas, in any trimester, as well as “new” mamas (no matter the age of your child or children). Come and nurture yourself with poses designed to allow your muscles to relax deeply, your body to open and your mind to quiet and slow down.

Deep relaxation results in a reduction of blood pressure and muscle tension, improves digestion and sleep patterns. We will use props to support your body, which helps you find the deep rest that you crave. This class is a baby and child free class. No yoga experience required. 

Prenatal Yoga Class

Pregnancy is a unique and special time in a woman’s life. Her body is changing daily while she grows her baby. We’ll be finding ways to:

• Strengthen and tone the muscles

• Ease aches in the low back and shoulders

• Create openness and mobility in the hips

• Work with the breath and the pelvic floor

• Find deep relaxation and rest 

Join us as we work with the pregnant body and learn which movements can help stretch, strengthen and tone the body in expectation of labor. No yoga experience required.
