Fertility Yoga helps improve overall health and prepare your body for conception. Prenatal yoga is effective for relieving various pregnancy issues and helps you prepare for labour. Postnatal yoga helps to regain strength and to maintain emotional balance after giving birth.

All Padma Yogi classes are taught by doula, childbirth educator and registered prenatal/postnatal yoga instructor. 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.

She’s has taught over 500 persons, using her experience and training in fertility yoga, prenatal yoga, and postnatal yoga to help new or expecting parents find stillness,  relaxation, and heal their bodies.

“I wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for all your yoga guidance during my pregnancy. I very much enjoyed the class each week and believe it helped me relax and prepare for labour and delivery. Our little girl was born on her due date. Happy, healthy and adorable.”

“Thanks for everything Melissa, you helped get my body and mind ready for this! I was very calm and breathing and visualization really helped.”

“My weekly prenatal yoga classes with Melissa helped me so much to relax and to get my body prepared for the big day. During labour my daughter came into distress at some point. I was able to relax my mind and body with techniques that Melissa taught me – and it worked! I delivered the most beautiful girl calmly and it was the most amazing experience. I’d recommend prenatal yoga to all women.”
