Maia was the Roman and earth goddess of spring time, warmth, increase and fertility. Her name literally means, "She who is great" or "She who brings, increase".
As mamas, we can all agree motherhood is the most fulfilling job and most important ministry. It is our pleasure to grow great human beings. What we bring to the table daily increases the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspect of our little ones. Therefor, we aim to be increased in order to increase those around us.
One of our favorite things about being a mama, is the community. We need each other for support whether it is allowing each other to vent or cry, asking for advice, relating to each other's experiences, or just laughing and being present with one another. We have the ability to also increase each other in this journey of motherhood.
Maia Mamas is our community of mamas here at United Yoga Studio. We offer prenatal & postnatal yoga, labor prep and birth education, doula & placenta encapsulation services, lactation consulting & breastfeeding support, and mommy + me classes/activities.
Mama + Me Yoga
Whether you are a new mama or a seasoned mama, Mama & Me Yoga will be a reason to get out of the house and put a pause on your to-do list. Not only will you break a little sweat, but baby will have the chance to be exposed to new stimuli and you will both have fun at the same time. Babies will be on their backs, tummies, or in your arms while you strengthen your arms, legs, and core. Toddlers will experience a little more independence by using their own mat next to mama trying to replicate as many poses as they can. We will work on common problematic areas such as the neck and shoulders from feeding and holding your baby. Being in the studio let's mama also strengthen her mental practice to focus on the breath despite the chaos surrounding her. Join me for a class where you feel comfortable if baby starts crying or toddler runs around and gain the support from a fellow mamas."
What is the age limit? 2 and under
Maia Mamas Friday
Join our growing community every 1st and 3rd Friday at 11am. This is less of a class and more like social hour/tea-time. Come ready to be educated, encouraged, and empowered through on various topics by just being surrounded by other like-minded mamas. Refreshments are always provided with our menu including Kombucha and water, organic fruit, healthy snacks, and most definitely something for your sweet tooth. However, most mamas bring additional snacks for their little ones as it is lunch time. Invite your mama friends and bring in the babies and toddlers.
Can I bring two little ones? Absolutely. It's completely up to you and how comfortable you will be.
Can I bring my older kiddo? Sorry right now this class is aimed for babies and tots but please check out our Family Yoga & Kids Yoga classes.
