Who We Are
The Yoga Mama Co-op emerged from the invaluable community of mothers who grew around what was originally the Pomegranate Center. As yoga teachers and mothers ourselves, we want to provide a continuity of a supportive yoga community for mothers. We offer yoga adapted to what our bodies need from a yoga practice throughout the new parent journey, from pregnancy, through the early stages of being a new parent all the way through mothering once your child(ren) are ‘independent.’

Passionate about connection and presence, Amber weaves mindfulness, breath and movement to help create an experience that is explorative and nurturing, fostering an opportunity for calmness, grounding and a greater sense of hereness.
