Come as you are mamas and join the Mandala Mamas community. Our goal is to offer a safe, accepting and loving environment where mamas can connect with their body, their baby and a supportive community of women. All our classes are one hour of movement/ postures and 30 minutes of authentic conversation and conscious connection.
Check out our current classes and events. We have 4 week Prenatal and Baby + Me Yoga series happening right now. Classes are offered as a pre-registered 4 week series or drop in style. All equipment is provided (yoga mat, blanket, bolster, blocks) Show up as you are and join the community.
Home with a new babe? Bring your sweet babe to yoga and treat yourself to a class in the company of other new mamas. Classes are lead by an experienced yoga instructor, Megan McMichael. Yoga can be a great way to begin safely strengthening, stretching and taking care of the body and mind post pregnancy. Our intention is to provide a safe space for new mamas to connect and find community.
Baby + Me Yoga is offered as a pre-registered 4 week series or drop in option. Show up as you are, mama. No experience required. Nursing, bottle feeding, diapering, crying, giggling and everything else that comes with a new babe is welcomed and expected.
Prenatal yoga is a great way to connect with other pregnant mamas and to stay active during all stages of pregnancy. Our prenatal classes are designed to strengthen the muscles used in labour, to stretch muscles that get stiff and sore from lack of mobility and to encourage rest and relaxation. Take care of yourself, bond with your baby and learn breathing techniques to help you throughout the labour process.

The Okanagan has my heart. Having lived here for nearly my entire life, I have a deep appreciation + love for this land. My days change with the seasons; however, there are a few constant passions in my life. I am a lover of learning, constantly devouring knowledge through podcasts, blogs, traditional + audio books. I’m a lover of memoirs, forever interested in how others live out their days in this wild world. I appreciate all things cozy, including warm mugs of tea, handknit blankets + wood burning stoves. Most of my days include bits of nature, poetry, connection, movement, music, self-exploration + snacks.
Yoga found me when I needed it most. Beginning my journey in 2007 during a time of stress + trauma. I didn’t know much about the practice, all I knew was how I felt after class. The effects of yoga on my body + mind were exactly what I needed to heal and grow. Slowly throughout the years Yoga proved to be a vital and important part of my life. In 2011 I embarked on my own yoga adventure, completing my 300 hour yoga teacher training.
In 2015 I was blessed with my greatest gift, my son Cameron. My transition into motherhood was beautiful + challenging. The birth of my son and my entrance into motherhood ignited my passion to learn more about prenatal and postnatal health + movement. Mandala Mamas is an expression of who I am and what I wish to offer the world. My intention is to gently guide mamas to strengthen + develop their own inner wisdom and power. As well as, to offer an accepting space for mamas to connect and build community.
