These one hour movement classes include dancing, strengthening and stretching movement in a safe and effective design for pregnant and postpartum bodies.

Participants in prenatal movement learn techniques to facilitate a more comfortable pregnancy, prepare the body for labor, promote a positive birth experience, and heal and strengthen after birth.

Postpartum movement participants baby wear or carry as we dance, then learn mat-based exercises that incorporate playtime with their baby. 

In addition to fun and safe forms of physical activity, these classes provide an opportunity to share the journey of pregnancy with other parents.

Available in-person and virtually.



"Michelle was amazing. She was such a calm spirit and really helped coach my husband on how to best help me. We were all in perfect sync."

"I knew Michelle was a perfect fit from the start... She had a gentle and kind personality and was very easy to talk openly with about everything. She had lots of tips for my husband so that he felt like a true partner during the birth. Also, she always seemed to know what I needed during labor before I would have to ask."

"Michelle is the perfect mix of professionalism and personability"

We are so glad we decided to work with Michelle. Her advice leading up to the birth was extremely helpful and her communication was reassuring. Michelle was absolutely invaluable during labor as she was encouraging and motivating and provided the support we needed. We cannot imagine the birth process without her being part of it.
