Postnatal Wellness

Hapa Yoga is 100% dedicated to the support of our new parents and mothers. Motherhood is a beautiful experience and also comes with challenges. For some, it may be a difficult transition.

When Studio Owner, Tina Ardolino, had her first born in July 2011, she experienced postpartum depression and anxiety. Yoga was the one thing she desperately needed. Due to the overwhelming experience, state of mind and lack of resources, she had a difficult time finding childcare services on demand so that she could turn to her mat. Tina realized the need for a studio that supported families by providing parents time for self-care, meditation, support and weight loss with a variety of classes and on-site childcare.

How Hapa Yoga Can Help:

Child Care – Offering childcare at the studio is the easiest way Hapa Yoga can help mothers, We provide a sanctuary to practice yoga, get in shape, meditate, relax, take time for yourselves, or to take a shower! Having your newborn steps away with our amazing childcare staff allows you the time you truly need for recovery. Take as much time as you need during class to check on your baby or breastfeed.

Classes – a great way to bond with your baby, embrace motherhood and your new body. Mommy & Me Yoga and Baby @ the Barre are interactive yoga and fitness classes you and your little one can enjoy together. Added benefits include gently and safely getting your body back into shape by closing the hips, stabilizing the pelvis, flattening the belly and strengthening the core. Classes incorporate strength, flexibility, bonding and relaxation poses. From around week 24 postpartum and on, we add cardio and toning. Car seats, diaper bags and breastfeeding welcome. Changing table available.

  • Mommy & Me Yoga* – Gentle yoga class dedicated to share your practice and joy of motherhood with your baby, and help with postnatal recovery by regaining muscle strength.
  • Baby @ the Barre* – Our babywearing Barre fitness class is a fun way to work out with you baby and other moms! A gentle version of Happy Hour @ the Barre, focusing on legs, arms and core. Please bring a baby wearing device.
    *Must be minimum 6 weeks postpartum for vaginal or 8 weeks cesarean birth. Newborns up to
    pre-crawling (around 6 months in age) welcome.

Support – Hapa Yoga is dedicated to go beyond yoga in order to provide the resources needed to those who may be suffering with baby blues, postpartum depression or anxiety.
