Mindful Birther Prenatal Yoga School

“Kelley was a complete game changer for me during my pregnancy. I truly could not have made it through my pregnancy with my head on straight & my body feeling good without Kelley’s prenatal class. I went to every prenatal class in town & Kelley’s was hands down the best. I went even when I was utterly exhausted & nauseous in the middle of a snow storm!”
