Bumps

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). In 2019, we plan to add our Family and KiDS Yoga classes back onto the schedule! 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 learn more, or click on the Pricing page to determine which package works best for you. We try to make it easy and simple for you to get onto your mat. As busy moms ourselves, we know how difficult incorporating self-care and navigating hectic schedules can be! This is the first step…we look forward to meeting you soon.

  • 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 we 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.

Tips + Tricks…coping tools for birth

Birth Tips + Tricks Birth...what an astronomical journey, ride, rush...whatever you call it, your baby's birth is a momentous time! Without the use of certain coping strategies that I learned prior to delivering, I am not sure I would've managed as well. I've personally explored the following tools during my past three births and, holy cow, they DO really work! Whether it's to take the edge off of your next contraction or to simply tune inward, pushing through the distractions in and around you. Explore, practice and OWN them because, when you're in the thick of birth, and you don't

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

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,
