Private Prenatal Yoga –

Private yoga classes are custom-designed session to give you Kundalini Yoga tools to address issues in your mind, body, spirit and life. I have a full schedule with full time work and teaching yoga and childbirth classes. I schedule private teaching when I am able, but please do not expect a regular series of private yoga classes. If that is what you are seeking, I encourage you to try elsewhere.

$90.00 – 2hr session, includes follow-up phone and email support.

    Hi there Shannon!

    My husband and I have recently moved to Salt Spring and are pregnant with our first child! We are interested in your prenatal/prenatal yoga classes that will be coming up soon! Could we get on a mailing list or be informed in someway, when you have determined the dates and details?

    Thank you so much for your time!

    Hi Shannon! I’m very interested to know if you would be interested in a post-natal yoga class with babes in tow, if I could get together a small group?
