Ma Yoga

Ma Yoga creates an appropriate environment for the developing mother to connect and bond with her child deeply and intuitively.  Yoga poses (asanas) specially designed for pregnancy cultivate the moment-to-moment awareness that prepares the ground for birthing, mothering and other challenges of prenatal life.  

 

Supportive breath work (pranayama) and vocal exercises are some of the tools that help women cope with the approaching intensity of labor and childbirth. A balanced spectrum of breathing, warm-ups and asanas are included in each class.

 

By cultivating mindfulness and awareness in the moment and participating in a community of mothers to be, a woman can begin to prepare for this exciting transformation in life.

About Mia

 

MIA BORGATTA, RN, the founder and director of the Ma Yoga program, was born in New York City. Mia both attended her first birth as a doula and received her Yoga Certification in 1989.  The merging of these two disciplines has resulted in the Ma Yoga prenatal technique - an invigorating and empowering practice that includes instinctive positioning and movement in preparation for birth.

Mia has taught yoga since 1990 and prenatal yoga since 1994.  She has taught at various centers, including Jivamukti and dance festivals, and currently teaches and runs the Ma Yoga program in New York.

 

As a doula, she has been present for the wonder and magic of over 310 births and applies the depth of these experiences to her teaching.  

 

Mia is a mother to spirited and inspiring Jaya who was born at home in 1994 and brings great joy to her life.  She is also a Licensed Massage Therapist and practices deep therapeutic massage.

 

Mia recently completed a BSN in Holistic Nursing that brings together her extensive experience with holistic modalities and the field of nursing. Her recent Lactation Training at the Jamaica Hospital in Queens and with the Lactation Learning Collective and with several mentors has been an exciting new direction.

 

She looks forward to initiating part-time hospital employment and private Lactation Consults early next year. In the meantime she offers lactation assistance in the context of her doula work.


Mia thanks all of her teachers especially Genny Kapuler, Zjenja la Rosa, Robert Moses (Shankarananda), Alison West, and Eden Fromberg who have deeply enriched her life and have influenced her work.
