I first visited Amanda's Prenatal Yoga class when I was 16 wks pregnant for our 4th baby. I had NEVER participated in a yoga class, but let me tell you after my first visit I made it a priority for my body & the new life that was forming inside me. I had the quickest recovery & only wished I had tried prenatal yoga with my other pregnancies! I now participate in baby mama yoga, baby wearing Barre (1st for me again) & Barre class. As a busy mama of 4 boys, when I attend a class of Amanda's I am reminded that self-care for my body is vital for me to be the Mom I want to be! I leave class feeling strong, happy, balanced & energized!
Renew Mama Sarah,
I could not imagine beginning my journey into motherhood without Renew. The space is calm and welcoming and provides exactly what I need as a new mom: yoga to breathe, barre to regain my strength, and, most importantly, the opportunity to connect with other moms. Amanda's prenatal yoga classes were also empowering and relaxing at once and no doubt helped me achieve my goal of a natural childbirth. Our community is so lucky to have this amazing resource and community of women.
Renew Mama Teri,
I stumbled upon Renew Mama Studio on accident...or meant to be is more like it. I was about 20 weeks pregnant at the time and that's about how long it had been since I had practiced yoga as I could not find a studio from Caledonia to Rockford that offered prenatal classes. Being a first time mom and not knowing which poses I could and couldn't do made me shy away from going to regular yoga classes. Renew Mama was love at first pose! Not only are the prenatal classes a great way to get the kinks out and strengthen the body for labor but it's also a great community of moms who have provided me with a wealth of information first hand that I couldn't get from just reading the "what to expect" books. I attend 2 prenatal classes a week and also Mama's Circle on Fridays and it's the best thing I've done for myself and my little one during my pregnancy. At 36 weeks I feel great, have plenty of energy and am ready to ROCK my delivery and I attribute that to Amanda at Renew Mama and the community of women who have become my mentors and friends.
Renew Mama Diane,
