  • These classes offered movements to free my body of its ailments and positions to use at home with my husband to ease back pain. I felt prepared and confident that my body could handle the labour process with the knowledge I gained in these classes.

    Katherine Golbey, Port Moody

  • I took Kukoon’s prenatal yoga classes all the way from 12 weeks to 37 weeks during my pregnancy. I truly looked forward to the class every week. I learned so much from Salina (her enthusiasm is infectious!) and her tips and tricks for labour helped me immensely during the delivery of my first baby.

    Gina Perizzolo, Tri Cities


  • I’ve been going to Kukoon yoga for 3 years and have loved all the classes!! If I could recommend one yoga studio to anyone, this would be it!

    Nicole Nonis, Port Coquitlam


  • I have been attending  Prenatal Yoga classes and absolutely love them! I feel much more confident, as our due date approaches, with what I have learned in these classes. The instructors are very very knowledgeable, funny and awesome! I wish I had found Kukoon earlier in my pregnancy!

    Melissa Heft, Tri Cities


  • I brought my 4 year old granddaughter to a class with Salina. We had a very enjoyable time and the class was easy for both of us to follow. Salina is awesome with children keeping them engaged and having fun. Would highly recommend her classes!

    Tracy Barth, Port Moody


  • I would, and have, recommended Kukoon Prenatal Yoga to all my pregnant friends! During the classes which I attended during the second and third trimester of my pregnancy I learned tools that I actually used during my labour! And bonded with my baby and other expectant moms. It was a fantastic experience and I’m looking forward to joining the Babe and Me Yoga with my little one soon!

    Kelsey Davidson, Tri Cities


  • The atmosphere in yoga classes are great and I felt much more prepared for what lies ahead in terms of giving birth to my 1st child & taking care of myself/baby postpartum. I intend to continue going to classes as long as I can & also to attend some mom & baby classes once my little one is here.

    Miriam Berger, Tri Cities


  • Attending Prenatal Yoga with Kukoon made a huge difference in my physical preparation for the birth of my third baby! I believe the breathing,  visualization and active meditation practiced during class played a huge role in my perfect homebirth! Baby & Me Yoga was the perfect exercise for my postpartum aches & pains. Aside from the physical benefits of both classes, the social aspect – connecting with other moms & babes was such a wonderful experience!

    Angela Lloyd, Port Moody


  • Awesome prenatal classes, beautiful open studio space with lots of light, wonderful and friendly instructors.

    Cheryl Denley, Port Moody


  • This Prenatal Yoga class was just what I needed during my pregnancy, I only wish I had found it sooner. The yoga instructors are very knowledgeable and passionate in this field. I felt welcomed and learned so much in my time there. If you are looking for a warm, friendly and safe place to practice yoga, this is the place to go!

    Ana Valle, Tri Cities


  • Signing up for pre-natal yoga with Kukoon was one of the best decisions I’ve made for this pregnancy.  I found Salina’s classes to be the perfect mix of moving my body, learning tools to help with labour, and time to connect with my baby.  I would highly recommend Kukoon Yoga, and will definitely be signing up for Babe & Me Yoga once this little guy arrives.

    Gillian Rowinski, Tri Cities


  • This was my first time taking a Prenatal Yoga class, and I was nervous during the first class, but the way Salina instructs was very accommodating and relaxing. I was comfortable and relaxed in the classes. The specialized maternity yoga movements helped me a lot in minimizing my back pain.

    Yoko Hansen, Port Moody


  • I felt so prepared from all the yoga classes I’ve been doing. I found Salina’s voice in my head on several occasions through the night of my birth. My midwife even commented on my ‘horse lips’ noises! My husband was amazing, of course, and found our partner class so useful (especially the second time around when you think you know it all, but clearly don’t!). I’m on my 3rd day in bed thanks to her advice.

When is it time for Free Flow Yoga Classes?

We are not a studio that aims to "get you fit after baby". No, no, no. We strive to get you feeling body strong! With the introduction of our Free Flow Yoga class, we want to ensure that mama's body is ready---physically. We always suggest seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist before and after baby is born because without taking such precautions, mama could cause permanent damage to her body (i.e. pelvic floor, transverse abdominus, diastasis recti, etc.). Together with Bump Physio, we've developed a series of questions that mama can use to help determine if she is indeed ready

Welcome to Kukoon.

The word, Cocoon means “to surround in a protective or comforting way”. How beautiful and relevant that meaning is to the practice of yoga. Our creative play on the word, changing it to ‘Kukoon’, makes this meaning our own. This is the true benefit of yoga—you can adapt and play with the practice until it is totally and wholeheartedly your own! We have always strived to provide a comfort and support to our community!

My name is Salina. I am a wife, mother, doula, yoga teacher and lover of all things sweet! I had been practicing yoga for over a decade and, after the birth of my first daughter in 2011, decided to pursue my passion for teaching it. My personal journey practicing yoga, through studying and teaching, has led me to develop specialized yoga programs for the gals, the guys and the kids. These classes always provide a safe and fun environment to experiment, play with movement and challenge yourself. Some days we simply celebrate making it to class, because sometimes that’s just enough!

I now have three munchkins of my own so know what it feels like to be completely wrapped up in the fray! I have experienced the highs and lows, and the really lows, so understand the need for community with others and connection within myself. The community we have at Kukoon fills my heart. I feel grateful for the opportunity to be a part of each family’s journey, whether it’s a mommy and massage class or a kids playshop! I look forward to meeting you and your people one day soon!

Lots of love,
