As a birth and postpartum doula, Melissa provides her clients with comfort, warmth, compassion and empowerment. Her passion for helping new moms is what inspired Padma Yogi—she finds greats joy in welcoming new life into the world.
All Padma Yogi classes are taught by doula, childbirth educator and registered prenatal/postnatal yoga instructor Melissa. She’s has taught over 450 pregnant women and supported over 50 women during labour, childbirth and postpartum time. She uses her experience and training in fertility yoga, prenatal yoga, and postnatal yoga to help new or expecting mothers find stillness and relaxation.
During Melissa’s initial yoga training, she received the spiritual name of Padmavati. Padmavati (or Padma for short) means keeper or holder of the lotus flowers.
Whether you are trying to conceive, looking to strengthen your body during pregnancy, or seeking an interactive fitness session with your baby, Melissa and her team welcome you with open arms.
