Postnatal yoga aims to help new mothers strengthen and restore their bodies after birth, focusing on areas most affected by pregnancy, birth, and nurturing a newborn. Classes will provide a chance to move and stretch as well as to relax and recharge. Most importantly, postnatal yoga classes offer a safe and supportive community of other women who are all experiencing new motherhood together. Babies (up to crawling) are welcome! Series will be led by Meredith Sisson. Learn more about Meredith below.

About Meredith. Meredith Sisson discovered yoga as a graduate student in her search to counteract the stress and anxiety of writing a dissertation. By allowing her to focus her mind on her alignment, balance, and breath, those first classes showed her that anxiety did not need to be all-consuming. They also quickly proved that yoga can be “real exercise”—and more! Over the next decade, Meredith discovered the many physical benefits of her practice and has learned to carry the mental, emotional, and spiritual lessons she learns on the mat into her life.
When Meredith made a career change based on her desire to focus more holistically on student development, it only made sense to expand that beyond her university office. In 2017, she completed her 200-hour YTT with Kim Manfredi at Charm City Yoga (Baltimore, MD), which has allowed her to connect and engage with students in new and exciting ways. Inspired by her own prenatal yoga experience, she completed her Prenatal Yoga teacher training with Deb Flashenberg and Caprice Abowitt at Prenatal Yoga Center in NYC in 2019. Her goals for each yoga class are to guide her students through a practice that allows them to find balance, energy, and self-knowledge.
