  • Meet regularly in the Circle of Friends gatherings to chat with a group of women who know firsthand the joys and challenges of taking care of a new baby, cultivate these friendships, and know you are in good company in this journey of motherhood.

  • Enjoy live-streaming yoga practices that are specifically and skillfully designed for the post-partum body, and watch the recorded practices anytime.

  • Engage with baby in enjoyable movements, massage, and song... taking time out from your daily routine to bond with your little one.

  • Build a toolset of coping strategies and practices to support your own wellbeing and resiliency as you navigate the ups and downs of emotions and life circumstances.

  • Enjoy unlimited access to restorative and replenishing practices of Yoga Nidra practices, and, when your body feels ready and you have a free moment on your own, nourish yourself in live-streamed and recorded Mindful Yoga.

membership

Your monthly membership gives you unlimited access to all live-streamed and recorded MamaBe Baby classes and gatherings, along with unlimited access to all the iRest Yoga Nidra meditations (and when you're ready, the Mindful Yoga classes).

Once you sign up, your membership is renewed automatically each month, and you can cancel easily at any time.

questions you may have...

always reach out if you have other questions... I'm here...

  • Can I try a class before signing up?

    Yes! You will find a sample class available to you at the top of this page under 'Welcome to MamaBe Baby Classes'. To view the class, you will need to first sign in (create a profile), however you will not be prompted to enter any payment information. This free mini class is provided to give you a sense of the movement portion practices with Clearlight are like.

    Keep in mind, each class has its own focus and theme, this is simply a taste. Also, keep in mind, this is a recorded class... Much of the delight of the Mama Baby classes is our gathering and community. When we are live-streaming we have time before check in, to 'see' one another, and if issues or questions come up during the class, they can be communicated in real-time.

  • How exactly would I cancel my subscription if and when needed?

    You can stop your monthly membership anytime. Sign in on the top bar of this page, click 'My Account,' then click 'Billing,' then under Subscriptions simply press the Cancel box. This will stop future billings. (You will have access to the classes until the end of the monthly period for which you have already paid.)

  • As a mother of a new baby, which classes in this monthly membership can I access?

    Your monthly subscription gives you complete, unlimited access to all live-streaming and recorded MamaBe Baby classes - including the Mama & Baby Yoga classes, the Circle of Friends gatherings, and all supporting material. You will also have unlimited access to the iRest Yoga Nidra recorded meditations (each one is said to be equal to 3 hours of sleep!), and (when your body feels ready) the Mindful Yoga and Meditation practices.

  • What is the difference between the MamaBe Mama & Baby Yoga classes and the MamaBe Circle of Friends gatherings?

    The MamaBe Mama Baby yoga classes begin with a social check-in, which is followed by a postpartum specific yoga class that includes baby massage and stimulation. The Circle of Friends is a purely social gathering of women who are enrolled in the Monthly Membership. Mamas and babies make new friends and gather in smaller private groups of 2-4 for free conversation... to share ideas, resources... to listen and to be heard.

  • How soon after delivery can I start the MamaBe Baby classes?

    You can join the practices anytime for discussion and community, however for the movement portion it is important to wait until a minimum of 6 weeks after vaginal delivery, or 8-10 weeks after a belly birth - or as soon as you get the green light from your doctor or midwife.

    In these initial weeks (and beyond), it is very advantageous to access the guided meditations available to you, particularly the iRest Yoga Nidra meditations as they have such a direct capacity to provide deep rest and support integration of your birthing experience and the transition you are living. You can continue in the MamaBe classes for as long as it works for you and your little one!

  • I would like to make connections with other Mamas, will these classes give me this opportunity?

    Yes. It is SO helpful to share in the company of other pregnant women and to make new friends with other women who are on this journey with you. Each week there is a Circle of Friends live-streaming gathering for Mamas and babies to come together, to share, and to make new friends. There is also time before each Yoga class to check in, to share, and to build our community. Finally, there is a monthly Q&A for pregnant and new moms which includes the opportunity to not only ask practice-related questions but to reach out to the community of women to share questions, ideas and resources.

  • Can Clearlight see myself and my baby while I am practicing during the live-streaming classes?

    This is up to you. You can set your video to 'on', in which case Clearlight will be able to see you while she is teaching. She may offer feedback if she has helpful comments to keep movements safe and effective. You can also set your video to 'off' should you choose to join the live practice but not be visible. Either choice is perfect, and this may change throughout any given practice.

  • I have weakness in my pelvic floor and abdominal diastasis... can I safely participate?

    It is important to let Clearlight know if you have health considerations (you can do so confidentially by email before class). She also assumes that there will be Mamas present with these common health conditions, so she is always leading with this in mind. Movements are meant to strengthen the pelvic floor and minimize unhelpful stressors to this area of the body. Abdominal and core strengthening work is offered in stages. If there is an exercise offered that requires there be no diastasis present, Clearlight will state this at the outset and provide alternatives.

  • I have other children who are here at home, is it okay if they are present?

    Absolutely! Older children are more than welcome to be present... and if you have a dog or cat you'll likely find they'll want to be part of the fun too!
