Sarah Oakley - Certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher - Owner & Director of MamaBirth YOGA
With the birth of my first daughter, I was born into a mother. This profound journey inspired my path of teaching yoga to mothers. From there, I became a birth activist and quickly knew that one day I would be supporting women in the rite of passage of birth. I am enjoying the slow incorporation of doula work into my services, which beautifully brings my yoga work full circle. I deeply understand the incredible, sometimes challenging, yet joyful transition through childbirth and into motherhood. Therefore, I strive to provide a safe, nurturing and empowering space for mothers to connect with their body and baby in preparation for the sacred and monumental transition of motherhood.
Above all, I am a mama to my sweet, strong, spirited girls and partner to my loving husband. I have found my calling in teaching perinatal yoga and teach from my heart with respect for the intuitive wisdom within every mother and baby. I find inspiration and joy in my teachers, the mamas I have the honor to share space with and my daughters - the best teachers of the yogini way of life.
I am a Certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher through The Seattle Holistic Center, where I studied under the guidance of Colette Crawford. I am sincerely grateful to have trained, apprenticed and taught with Camille Mulchi of MotherWise Yoga in Portland OR. When designing my classes, I draw upon my experiences in pregnancy, birth, motherhood and yoga practice of more than 15 years, with five years of teaching. In addition to teaching prenatal yoga, I am a professional member of St. Lawrence County Birth Connection.
Gratitude fills me daily to have found my dharma in sharing yoga with mothers. My greatest hope for my work is that I am able to offer mothers yogic tools for embracing a conscious and empowering pregnancy, birth and motherhood. I look forward to supporting families in the North Country with a full spectrum of services, rooted in yoga.
