Musikgarten is a Mommy & Me early childhood music and movement program, benefiting all stages of development! Together we will:
  • engage the child in musical play, while developing musical aptitude at an early age
  • learn how to bond through music
  • pave the path toward literacy and cognitive development
Little ones have the opportunity to explore and learn, all while having fun during Musikgarten activities! Musikgarten bridges the natural connection between music and movement. The classes are full of smiles as you dance, move, sing, chant, listen, and play simple instruments together.

Each lesson features movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, and exploration of space. Learn aural and rhythmic skills playing instruments like the jingles, drums, rhythm sticks, rattles, and resonator bars. The benefits for all stages of development are tremendous!

Included in registration: Musikgarten CD, a parent activity book, and an instrument or scarf to use at home for more fun time together and reinforce what children learn in class!

The benefits of attending a prenatal yoga class are far beyond what you can receive by simply modifying a regular yoga or exercise class. Our MamasteYoga™ classes are specifically designed to help prepare the body and the mind for labor, delivery and motherhood. The exercises are carefully chosen to be safe for mom and baby, to maintain or correct posture and to relieve neck and lower back pain, sciatica symptoms, cramps and other common complaints associated with pregnancy. You will learn specialized movements and breathing techniques to be used during labor. Learn to relax on command and to keep a positive outlook while clearing the mind of the stresses associated with pregnancy and motherhood. Deepen the bond with your baby and enjoy support and encouragement from the other students. Many lifelong friendships start in prenatal yoga classes! These classes are appropriate for both beginning and experienced yoga practitioners and conform to the safety guidelines of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for exercise during pregnancy. You must be in your second or third trimester to participate. A physician’s release is also required, available online here.

Please bring a pillow for comfort. You are also encouraged to bring your own yoga mat and blankets if you have them (available for purchase in the boutique).

This is a courtesy the instructor extends to students if space is available in other classes and if making up works with your schedule. Your tuition is holding your space and missed classes may not be made up in subsequent series. (Once signed up for series, post on the facebook Mimi's Mamaste make-up admin group if you have to miss class.)

Saturdays, November 4, 3-5:30p  ENROLL NOW


Bring your partner and/or doula to share or review with them all the tools we learn in our MamasteTM prenatal yoga classes.

Learn how to use the breathing techniques you practice in the weekly prenatal yoga classes during each stage of labor to help relieve tension and anxiety. 

Partners will also learn yoga philosophy and tools in this unique workshop.  Have them feel empowered as they will have a "flexible plan" to use in labor. With this class, your support team can learn how to cue you in a way that is consistent with your weekly yoga class, which will feel familiar and comfortable to you by the time you are in labor.  By the end of class, they will know how and when to use those techniques to support you in each phase of labor.  They will feel confident about what to look for, expect, and do at each stage. We will not be doing lots of yoga postures, but there will be some practice of positions for labor.

Wear comfortable clothes.

Bring your husband, partner, mother, sister, doula, or whoever will be with you in labor and birth. Price is per couple and one additional support person can join for free. 

Highly recommended during the second or third trimester. Repeat couples get a 50% discount (call studio at 972.732.0206 for discount). Bring your rebozo if you have one.

babymassageThe birth of your child is a magical and exciting moment for everybody in the family. However, the first days and weeks of the life of your newborn can be a very challenging time, especially for first-time moms. Exhausted, overwhelmed, worried for their babies, some moms feel powerless and frustrated.

The Baby’s First Massage workshop teaches you a simple way to create a relaxing, rewarding, nourishing and bonding time for the whole family. You'll learn:
  • when and how to massage your newborn in a nurturing, gentle way that will help baby feel safe and loved and encourage growth and healing
  • the benefits of massage for your newborn
  • when not to massage
  • what you need to prepare for the massage
  • to recognize the “time-out” cues
  • to recognize the “talking” cry from the “I need help” cry and how to react to each
  • ways to calm your baby
  • the Baby’s First Massage routine, which is so simple a child can learn it and gentle enough to use safely on any baby (even pre-term babies, once they are medically stable)
  • massage techniques to relieve gas and constipation
You'll also receive a booklet with pictures and everything you need to continue learning the massage techniques at home.

This workshop is designed for pregnant women and their partner in the last trimester and new moms/or dads with newborns-precrawlers. Please email MiMi to inquire about private classes for babies who were born preterm or who have special needs.

Bring: baby bag, diapers, wipes, a firm pillow and blanket. 

Need a different day/time? Contact Mimi to schedule your private session or semi-private session.
