Shelley discusses how you can reframe your birth story on these New Mommy Media Podcasts.
All classes/workshops held at Yoga Jai Ma studio in Rancho Bernardo.
Each Birth Tribe class consists of a theme-based dialog covering topics related to birth, motherhood and personal growth. The discussion is then explored more deeply through chalk art, movement, partner work or other moving/creative arts. Friendship and sisterhood is naturally fostered in this safe and open-hearted environment.
This 75-minute class begins with a short discussion about a birth/motherhood related topic. Shelley then guides mothers to further explore that topic through yoga, dance and meditation. Yoga and dance is the perfect movement to prepare a mother for birth! The class always ends with relaxing meditation or savasana.
This class is more than just your ordinary prenatal yoga class! It’s a FULL, comprehensive program that prepares mothers for birth—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Each class begins with a rich dialog on a birth or motherhood related topic. With the insight and awareness gleamed from the group dialog, Shelley leads the group through a dynamic yoga and meditation session. With Shelley’s guidance, mothers in this class not only educate and inspire each other, they honor and celebrate the incredible journey of motherhood together.
Inside you is an innate wisdom that intuitively understands the very natural
process of birth. We help you reconnect with this wisdom, guiding you through a
class specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy, interweaving childbirth
education as well as addressing therapeutic applications - common aches and pains.
Linking yoga postures with the breath will guide you to more awareness of the mind,
body and spirit for you and your child.
This class will also encompass dance movements as we immerse ourselves in the vibration of the drum beats mimicking the beat of you and your baby's hearts...we will express our dance of freedom and joy!
This heart centered workshop is designed for expecting parents.
Couples will work together to prepare themselves for the birth of
their child through a variety of methods. Topics explored include:
what to expect in labor and birth, addressing fears surrounding birth,
labor coping techniques, vocal toning and massage. In addition to
learning yoga poses ideal for labor, other aspects of yoga explored
include pranayama and meditation.
$45 per couple. Pre-registration is required.
Note: There is a 48 hour cancellation policy for this event.
The Birthing From Within® method of childbirth preparation is a

techniques to cope with labor, you will deepen your intuitive knowing
through thought-provoking dialogues, birth videos and memorable exercises.
$325 per couple (includes a $15 materials fee).
Class limited to 6 couples and pre-registration is required.
Shelley has a unique way of guiding women into exploration of the physical,
emotional and psychological changes that happen on the birth journey. In this series,
learning about cervical dilation in labor also becomes a metaphor for the psychological
transformation that a woman experiences as she is birthing herself as a mother. We will
learn through dance, movement, dialog and meditation.....THROUGH THE BODY! Expand and
open your mind, heart and body...while learning how the cervix expands and opens in
labor! We will go from "0 cm" to "10 cm"....and BEYOND!
Cost: $108 for full series. $20 drop in rate.
Whether your birth experience was difficult and challenging, or smooth
and straight-forward.....it is important to process it. Join Shelley Rahim
as she guides us through exercises and dialog to better understand the deeper
lessons of our birth story.
Cost: $25. This workshop is offered the third Thursday of every month.
