TESTIMONIAL

"[I] loved that the curriculum called out specific issues like insomnia, indigestion, stress, etc. --all of which are all of the issues that I've seen come up for me personally and had no idea how to combat or deal with. I've been able to use the poses at home to help whenever issues arise. In this trimester I've suffered from insomnia just about every week. Tamisha showed me a breathing technique that has been super helpful during the late nights/early mornings.  The program and in-person sessions also have helped with my overall strength which I know will be important for delivery and recovery after birth. I absolutely love the in-person sessions, I've had to switch my workouts to low impact and this is perfect for where I am in my pregnancy. I leave feeling like I've had a good workout and it feels amazing to get my body moving."
