We hold space for your

body

Welcome to our Yoga site!

Kukoon Yoga is a small and passionate yoga venture located in Port Moody, British Columbia. We specialize in Prenatal and Post-Natal Yoga classes (Babe & Me Yoga, Just for Mama Yoga and Rest & Renew Yoga). We are passionate about bumps, babies and beyond!

We strive to create a safe environment for mamas to connect, or re-connect, with themselves, with each other and with their bumps/babes. The Wikipedia definition of cocoon is, “to envelop or surround in a protective or comforting way”. How beautiful and relevant that meaning is to 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!

Local Yoga Classes: Port Moody, BC

Kukoon Yoga offers a variety of local yoga classes for those with bumps, those with babies and for those in the “beyond”. Our classes are for all levels, even those who have never practiced yoga. The focus in class centers around breathing techniques, simple meditation strategies and self discovery…oh yah, and a great stretch too! All you’ll need are comfortable clothes and your bare toes. We provide you with yoga mats and other props such as bolsters, blocks and straps for in-class use.

Follow the links below to register for a drop in or for the entire session. We try to make it easy and simple for you. As busy moms ourselves, we know how incorporating self-care and navigating hectic schedules can be! This is the first step…we look forward to meeting you one day soon.

  • I have 3 beautiful boys and Prenatal Yoga has been an essential component of my birthing process for each one. Salina’s classes offered movements to free my body of its ailments and positions to use at home with my husband to ease back pain. It was a special time where I could tune into my baby, away from distraction. I felt prepared and confident that my body could handle the labour process with the knowledge I gained in these classes.

  • Chris and I have been attending Salina’s yoga classes for almost two years now and they are a highlight of our week. Sometimes we have challenging days and have to ‘drag’ ourselves to Yoga but after class we feel fantastic: relaxed, happy, and our bodies feel ‘balanced’. My husband had some real movement limitations at the start; but now he’s so much more flexible than he’s been in over 20 years.

     Chris and Kris Bovay, Coquitlam

  • 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.

Tighten Your taco! 5 tips for strengthening your pelvic floor

If you ask your mother if she could jump on the trampoline without using the bathroom first, chances are she will say, “no”. There are generations of women who think just because they’ve carried and birthed a baby, that their body will forever be broken. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With proper information and practice, you can gain strength through your pelvic floor during and after pregnancy, and once again be free to sneeze without needing to cross your legs…I’m talking about incontinence here! Besides incontinence, your pelvic floor muscles are also responsible for other factors, such

OMG, what is wrong with my belly?". That's what I thought when I first saw a ridge form down my tummy in my first trimester, pregnant with my first babe.

Hello, I’m Salina.

I am a wife, mother, doula, yoga teacher and lover of all things sweet!

I am passionate about making connections…uniting the mind, the body and the breath. Yoga stole my heart and we are now beyond ‘the point of no return’. Yoga is therapy, it is gratitude, love, family, and connection.

I’ve been practicing yoga for over a decade and, after the birth of my daughter, decided to pursue my passion for teaching it. I received my 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training certification in September 2012 and completed my 80 hours Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training while pregnant with my son in 2013. Most recently, I received my Rainbow Kids Yoga Training certificate in hopes of bringing yoga to the kiddos in my life in a fun and interactive way.

My personal journey practicing yoga, through studying and teaching, has led me to develop specialized yoga programs for kids, families, athletes, birthday parties, and yoga for pregnant women. As a yoga teacher, I am committed to teaching you how to practice yoga in a way that connects you to your body, mind and spirit. My classes always provide a safe and fun environment to experiment, play with movement and challenge yourself.

I greatly enjoy getting to know my students, who range from two to 80 years old! I look forward to meeting you one day soon.

Love always,
