Hello beautiful mamas! Kukoon Yoga offers unique Prenatal Yoga classes in Port Moody, BC! The classes are designed to help prepare you for labour, birth and beyond, while connecting you with baby! Conscious breathing and supported physical movement are at the core of each class.
Deceptively powerful, delightfully supportive and down-right fun, our Prenatal Yoga class helps mamas release inhibition and enhance intuition through subtle guidance of the body’s energy. In class, we cycle through gentle poses that allow you to connect with your body, with your baby and with other mamas. We often use props, such as bolsters and blocks, to provide the support necessary for your body during all the stages of pregnancy.

Learn different styles of breathing, movements and optimal positions for labour/delivery. No previous yoga experience is required. All bellies are welcome, whether it’s your first, second or third baby! Come out to play, cry, connect and breathe, it’s your class for whatever you need.
Classes are held at 2739 Murray Street, Port Moody (upper level studio at Innovative Fitness, across from Rocky Point Park). Programs run back to back and prices are pro-rated for late entries.

We avoid registering you up to three weeks prior to your due date to avoid any missed classes due to early arrivals, rather, we offer a special drop in rate of $14 per class for those final three+ weeks.

We ask all make-up classes be completed before the end of the session.

Your ‘yoga chaperone’ for Tuesdays
Hello everyone. First off, congratulations on your pregnancy! What a very special time in your life. I am honoured to share in this journey with you.
Yoga has changed my life. I went from being an anxious University student to feeling calm, at ease, and at home in my body. In my classes I endeavour to support, guide, and teach you to feel this same sense of peacefulness in your own body.
As women, we often put our own self-care at the bottom of our priority list. My classes intend to provide you with the opportunity to come home to yourself through movement, breath-work and meditation. When you attend, you can expect intentional and creative yoga flows that support gentle opening and overall body/spirit strengthening.
I have been teaching yoga for over five years. My background is in traditional Hatha Yoga. In addition, I have studied Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Kids Yoga, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, and Prenatal Yoga. I am also a middle school teacher in the Coquitlam School District. When I am not practicing yoga, I enjoy being outdoors with my family, exploring creative and nutritious recipes in my kitchen and reading a good book. I am delighted to be able to support you during your pregnancy. Thank you for trusting me to guide you and those little lights inside of you.
Your ‘yoga chaperone’ for Thursdays
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! I look forward to meeting you one day soon.
Lots of sweet baby love,
Bring your partner along…
