some refer to our classes as a blessing

meet MTRNL

we're raw, real and un-edited. we're here for YOU

hey there beautiful mama.

welcome to MTRNL yoga + wellness.

we believe that every woman has inherent strength and instincts that will make her childbearing years the most incredible years of her life.

our classes give mamas the tools needed to:

  • Feel at ease in your pregnant body and say goodbye to hip and back pain
  • Make space for feeling, growing and transforming during pregnancy
  • Unify your mind, body and spirit to birth with confidence and power
  • Restore your body after birth - regardless of how baby is born
  • Knit your abs back together after birth, giving you a core that you adore
  • Tone your pelvic floor so that you can get back to doing all the super-woman activities you love and never worry about peeing when you laugh again...

the MTRNL library and app has hundreds of classes that empower you to take your pregnancy and postpartum wellness into your own hands.

  • Together, we can make your MTRNL years some of the most rewarding years of your life.
  • This is why hundreds of mama swear by MTRNL and many doulas/midwives/doctors insist their clients try our classes.

  • In fact, leading OBGYN's like Dr Ali Lewis from UW Medicine did our classes during their own pregnancy.
  • Our members include SO MANY EXCEPTIONAL WOMEN - scientists, engineers, business leaders, pilots, dentists, doctors, veterans, doulas and midwives. 
  • These are women who understand how important it is to prioritize well-being and strength - particularly through these challenging child-bearing years.
  • Many of these women had never tried yoga before they were pregnant. They tell us regularly that they are SO grateful to have a yoga practice as part of their journey through motherhood.

"I feel amazing. I am so glad I joined MTRNL." - Joanna Jenkins, CEO and mother of two

Like you, we want to feel cool, calm, centered and STRONG. We can show you how to develop your strength in a way that honors your pregnant or postpartum body.

Why Some Workouts are Dangerous

Pregnant and Post-Pregnant Bodies Require Extra Special TLC

Traditional workouts focus on one thing - burning calories and pushing you to your edge. They often leave out the mind/body/spirit connection and do not take into consideration the unique needs of the pregnant and post-pregnant body. They often miss the important role of preparing you for birthing (and recovering from birthing) your human.

Yes, you end up with a good sweat. But also a fatigued spirit., a weakened pelvic floor and splitting abs known as diastasis recti.

This is not a good strategy for feeling sustainably good in your pregnant body, birthing confidently or feeling back at home in your beautiful post-pregnant body.

MTRNL solves this problem by leading challenging classes led by instructors who will help you tune into your body and explore its creative capabilities while at the same time ensuring poses and flows are appropriate for your specific condition, and your specific stage (and DAY) of pregnancy.

If you join us in a LIVE class, instructors will offer personalized adjustments and poses that are tailored to YOU.

If you can't attend the live classes, we can refer you to specific classes in our MTRNL Library (or you can use the search function to find a class that suits you that day).

Simple. Safe. Strength.

Goodbye Traditional Workouts, Hello MTRNL

Yoga literally means Union. Of your Self with your Self. Heart and Mind. Body and Spirit.

There is a reason that nearly 20million people practice yoga in the United States. And there are many reasons why not all yoga is not always safe - particularly for pregnant and post-pregnant women. Through movement and breath work MTRNL classes guide students to safely develop a loving relationship with their body and make space for FEELING as you explore different postures.

As you prepare for birth and find your way through motherhood, you have a unique opportunity to look within and explore your creative powers. as you are gestating and keeping a human alive, you are challenged with an opportunity to see the pure potential of your own life.

MTRNL supports you as you find and strengthen your Inner Self. This is the You that is fiercely loyal to your family, deeply connected to your intuition, balanced in your softness and strength, playful and courageous.

MTRNL mamas are the mamas who reach for more. Who lead. Create. Do. Get it DONE. Love HARD. Give generously. Serve with their talents. Who honor their maternal strengths AND weaknesses.

Through our 30-45min live and recorded classes, you build strength physically, mentally and spiritually.

The result?

Your body, birth and life will transform in extraordinary ways.

What Science Says about Prenatal Yoga

Studies have revealed surprising and amazing results for women that practice prenatal and postnatal yoga. After reading these you'll know you must engage in your yoga practice starting today.

  • One study found that women who practiced prenatal yoga had on average a shorter birth by 2 1/2 hours. All three stages of labor were shortened for the women who practiced yoga.
  • Another study found that women who practiced prenatal yoga reported half the pain during labor than those who didn't practice yoga.
  • Women who practice prenatal yoga are less likely to be induced AND less likely to have a c-section.
  • Another study found that babies whose mothers practiced prenatal yoga had improved birth weight and fewer babies were born preterm.
  • Another study found that when yoga was combined with meditation or breath work, mothers were less likely to suffer from postpartum depression and had a decrease in the severity of their symptoms.

We have first hand watched our yoga mamas transform their birth anxiety into glowing confidence as they engage in class.

Fall in love with your post-pregnancy body

We want you to Adore Your Core

Have you ever heard of women feeling defeated after their baby is born about the "mommy-tummy" that never goes away no matter how much they exercise? Painful sex? Peeing when they laugh or sneeze? 

These are not badges of honor you have to walk around with the rest of your life.  

These are all signs of diastasis recti and possibly even a pelvic floor prolapse.

2 out of 3 moms in the US experience diastasis recti (the splitting of your abdominal muscles) and the struggles that accompany it.

We can help you prevent this by teaching you the correct exercises to do before and after baby has arrived to knit your body back together to be stronger than ever before.

When your body is moving functionally, you will also birth functionally, decreasing the risk of damaging your pelvic floor.

Your body literally is creating a new life, let us help you move more functionally and feel  better in it while you accomplish this magnificent job.

Say no to peeing when you sneeze!

Meet the Mother of MTRNL

Blair is a remarkable woman. She is obsessed with the idea that every mother should feel loved, strong and supported.

When Blair moved from downtown Seattle to a homestead in the country, her prenatal yoga students missed her. Instead of asking busy moms to drive an hour to come to her, she knew she could find a way to bring yoga to them.

In the next 9 months Blair conceived and brought to life the idea of MTRNL, a revolutionary online yoga studio that would make world class prenatal yoga classes and postnatal yoga classes accessible to every mom.

Thousands of moms have benefited from her vision and dedication. She won Entrepreneur of the Year from the International Business Awards in 2018, 'Made It Mom-preneur' 2017 from Romper.com and was featured as 'Geek of the Week' on Geekwire.

When she is not working on MTRNL, you can find her enjoying beautiful afternoons playing outdoors at her homestead with her 2 girls, sheep, pigs, ducks and dog, and preparing for the upcoming birth of her 3rd child.

If there was anyone that embodied the maternal energy of motherhood, and deep love for others, it is Blair.
