Motherhood Center is Houston's only full-time prenatal yoga and fitness studio. For more than 15 years we have specialized in providing a variety of prime-time classes for all stages of motherhood, 7 days a week. We offer walk-in classes, so no need to preregister, and you can enjoy a class when it is most convenient for you! Yoga is proven to reduce stress by lowering levels of cortisol in the body, boost immune function and levels of "feel good" chemicals in the brain, and balance the body by reducing the body's level of inflammation. Since many of our instructors have been with us for several years and are well versed in prenatal yoga techniques, they provide optimum instruction to either the novice, or the most experienced. If you will be attending a class for the first time, please arrive at least 15 minutes early to familiarize yourself with the center.

During your pregnancy it’s important to set aside time for yourself. Prenatal yoga gives expecting moms the opportunity to relax, breathe, and connect with their baby. Our yoga classes will help you ease the discomforts of your pregnancy and help prepare your body for childbirth.
Prenatal Fitness/Pilates will engage your deepest core muscles, pelvic floor, hips and spine. You’ll develop muscle strength and memory that will help your body recover faster post-pregnancy. The class incorporates the use of light weights, large balls for seated poses, stretch bands, and some small weight balls.
Mom & Baby Yoga and Fitness class offers an opportunity for you to regain strength and flexibility, to bond with your baby, and to connect with other moms and dads. You’re encouraged to take a break at any time to nurture or feed your baby. Babies are encouraged to express themselves in their own way during class and no expectations are placed on the baby’s behavior. The class ends with gentle baby yoga and massage.
Our Flow Yoga class is a vinyasa-style practice where students transition (flow) from one posture to the next linking breath with movement. Designed to build core strength and overall flexibility while calming the nervous system with a continued emphasis on breathing and healthy alignment of the body and mind. Flow Yoga is great for those looking to get in shape (or back in shape) and find steadiness and serenity to counter stress and tension.
Our Little Yogi & Me yoga classes are specifically designed to meet the needs of mothers and caregivers wishing to practice yoga while sharing a safe space with their crawlers, toddlers, and walkers up to the age of two.
