Hi, I'm Melissa!

In yoga, we often begin class with an invitation --  to release the weight of judgements or expectations. To practice with a spirit of openness, awareness and self compassion.

These principles are at the heart of a mindful approach to pregnancy, birth and parenthood. They are the foundation of my work with families -- on and off our mats.


I'm a partner (happily with my husband for 28 years and counting!) and a mother of three amazing grown-up humans. I'm yoga and mindfulness teacher, a birth doula, a childbirth educator, and a community builder. ​ I've worked with people in and around the transitions of growing their families for over a decade. It's my deep privilege to meet you right where you are, and to hold space for you, without judgement or expectation. 

Together, we can cultivate simple, sustainable practices that will support you through pregnancy and birth, parenting, and beyond.
