Some of what I teach is also available in a group setting. By patricipating in a group class, particularly those that cotinue for several consecutive weeks, you'll have the added benefit of speaking to and listening to other folks share their journeys. **warning** sharing experiences with others is known to cause camaraderie, acceptance, and spark new ideas.
If you want to book a group session at your studio, let's chat. I love collaborating with RADICAL folks!
Yoga for Pelvic Health is a chance to Breathe, Move, Restore
Do not settle for what your providers are telling you about painful sex, incontinence, or leaking during jumping, laughing, etc...There's more to the story, and the solution is not a bottle of wine, lubricant, or adult diapers! This 4 week session is perfect for folks who are living with pelvic floor dysfunction (painful intercourse, incontinence, constipation, etc) low core awareness, sciatica, hip discomfort, and more. Each week we'll meet for an hour. Cover a brief discussion topic. Learn specific restorative and movement postures in conjunction with breathing techniques to encourage a supple pelvic floor. All genders welcome. 4 weeks of guided breath work and exercises, take home materials, and relevant content. Stay tuned for next session.
Chairs are incredible tools. Let's use them. These classes are set-up specifically for folks using chairs for mobility, or stability. Get curious about how your chair can become your favorite way to practice yoga. Open for all abilities and ages.
Queer birthers are welcome here! This group class typically runs for about 6-8 weeks. Each week we focus on a topic relevant to pregnancy, birth, and immediate postpartum. Each week we'll cover movement, and breath to assist in easing discomforts, and creating supple muscle tone during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. Sessions start again in August 2020.
Rest is radical. This is a monthly by-donation, class. I choose a BIPOC birth worker or yoga teacher or organization working toward decolonizing yoga and birth. You donate to the cause, let me know, and receive your link for our virtual class. Next up is August 7th, Friday, 8:30pm. Donations go toward Chaney the Intersectional Doula. She's radical and studying at Birthwise Midwifery in Bridgton, MAINE! This country needs more Black birth workers! Let's show our support by donating to her tuition fund!
You believe yoga is not just asana. You are no longer 20 years old. And sun-salutations at a rapid rate are no longer suited to your lifestyle, or your desires. You've come to the right place. This group class is set up for 8-weeks. We meet for 90min each week, and cover sequences in which we hold alignment-based shapes designed to promote self-inquiry, and understanding. Each session includes an intention, pranayama, and poses to counter-balance the postures we find ourselves living in during most of our time, nowadays.
Each individualized yoga session is different. Your goals and needs are at the forefront of the practice. I incorporate traditional and therapeutic yoga teachings, postures, and techniques that support your body and personality.
$495 for 5 60 minute sessions (preferred package)
$108 for 1 60 minute session
It is common for me to meet with students weekly, or bi-weekly so that they gain familiarity and are accountable for being an integral part in their yoga journey.
I appreciate your understanding.
You don't have to do this alone; you were never meant to.
I support all families regardless of race, gender, identity, religion, or ability. I've worked with folks who are waiting to get pregnant, abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth, home and hospital birth, elected cesarean, high risk, and low risk pregnancy, queer parents, and those who are parenting after loss. As your doula I work for you, not the hospital, not the system.
Depending on your package you'll receive something like the following:
So glad to have found the prenatal class with Lindsay at Metta Studios during my pregnancy! A great opportunity to move your body in ways that feel safe and healthy as your body changes. More than that, Lindsay creates an amazing, welcoming space to connect with other moms, and shares so much helpful information about pregnancy, labor, and post-partum.
I was lucky enough to find this beautiful studio during my vacation in Maine. I’d encourage anyone in the area to go if they can. Lindsay is both so warm and welcoming and they made me feel right at home. I will most definitely be back when I’m in the area. Thank you for being my yoga away from home. It means a lot to find a wonderful place to practice when I’m away!
Lindsay is such an amazing advocate ❤️
Motherhood, is so so hard but it is so much more rewarding than anything else in existence....Thank you for your support.
I can’t imagine what my pregnancy would have looked like if it wasn’t for Lindsay and her prenatal yoga classes. My entire life I have been fearful of being pregnant, and giving birth, and spending my entire first trimester with all-day sickness didn’t help calm those fears. Meeting Lindsay truly turned my pregnancy around, her classes eased both my discomfort and my mind. She creates a safe, fun and comfortable space to discuss pregnancy and all that comes with it, without any judgement. Although it was a group class she was attentive to each person and made adjustments to poses as needed. I specifically needed modifications because I had diastasis recti and Lindsay was always checking in to make sure poses were comfortable and not making the separation worse. Because of Lindsay I felt empowered through the rest of my pregnancy, I was calm, I felt prepared. I brought my yoga mat to the hospital with me and labored for 17 hours pain-medication free, concentrating on my breath, easing discomfort with yoga, and calming my mind with birth affirmations, one of which she wrote for me “My body knows how to give birth to my baby”.
I have found Lindsay to be a wealth of knowledge and a skilled transmitter of this knowledge. She is friendly, attentive, and has the ability to address the needs of everyone in her class at the same time. Lindsay is able to take a student at her level and patiently and possibly slowly take her to the next level. When thinking about Lindsay, one must also reflect on her spirit, friendliness, and enthusiasm. She lights up the room—it is an honor to be her student.
Lindsay is professional, courteous, trauma informed, welcoming, and engaging. I felt instantly connected to Lindsay the moment I stepped into my first session with her. Her caring nature is palpable. She creates an open and welcoming space for EVERY BODY and is constantly learning new ways to create safer spaces for students. Lindsay’s passion for helping people reconnect with their bodies is inspiring. When I take a lesson with her, Lindsay reminds me to stay so in touch with my body that I take off my teacher hat for a short time! I am grateful to have her in my life!
Lindsay creates an incredibly inviting, warm and safe environment to practice yoga holding space for everyone to be exactly who they are. Her genuine enthusiasm and passion are infectious. Truly one of my favorite yoga teachers of all time!
Lindsay is warm, engaging and real.
She listens - I mentioned areas of pain; the poses and suggestions have made such a difference.
Lindsay handles diversity seamlessly - I am older, when suggesting adaptation to a pose, she do so in a way that builds confidence and in time ability.
I love the way Lindsay works through yoga poses, nice and slow, with lots of well timed cues that I can relate to. I appreciate Lindsay's meaningful explanations. I have made attempts at yoga in the past; but I gave up, feeling overwhelmed and unsuccessful. I see slow steady progress as I attend under her guidance.
Lindsay is off her mat helping students make adjustments. She offers lots of props for alignment and enhancement. I love it!
