It brings me SO much joy to announce that Mama Aligned is opening
Mama Aligned Community Movement Studio!
Contractors are already hard at work renovating and building out the space! Estimated Guess Date is sometime in September. If only my babies gestated so quickly! Our lease at our current office is up in September so when this perfect opportunity presented itself it was seriously just meant to be!
Our studio is going to be located in the soon to be renovated detached garage of Roots Community Birth Center in the flourishing area of North Minneapolis where my family and I live. We love the Roots mission and feel that they are the perfect sister business! Please like them on Facebook!
Picture a fully functioning glass garage door. Open air classes when it's nice out, anyone?
So just what is a COMMUNITY movement studio?
We believe that everyone should have access to movement and yoga classes! The prices of classes have consistently been rising over the years with expensive drop in rates and monthly memberships that are far beyond what some people can afford. As a result, these classes have not been accessible to many people. At Mama Aligned, we want everyone to have access to our classes. Because of this, we have intentionally chosen to put our faith in our students and operate under the donation model. No packages, no longer term commitments or monthly recurring payments. Just pay what you can classes! Our hope is that those who can pay a little bit more will choose to pay more in order to assist those who can not pay as much.
We also want to be a space that movement practitioners in the community can hold their classes and earn a living wage and keep the majority (minus a little bit to keep the lights on!) of what students pay for class. We KNOW how much time, money, and work goes into all the trainings and certifications and continuing education it takes to be a really great teacher and we want teachers to be compensated well for that!
As usual, we will continue to offer our private Restorative Exercise™ sessions and other workshops and offerings out of the studio.
Our mission is and will continue to be to help people align their bodies, restore to full health and well-being, and truly thrive. For women to eliminate or lessen pregnancy pain, prepare their bodies for an easier birth, have pelvic floors that are functional both during and after pregnancy, and cores that are strong and fully functioning! We believe that everyone deserves to feel good in their bodies!
If you would like to help support our mission- please donate by clicking the link below. All proceeds will go towards build out of the space. If we get enough we may even be able to put in a set of indoor monkey bars!
