“As my second pregnancy journey comes to an end, I have to express my undying gratitude to my prenatal yoga instructor Shahar Lion! Truly this has been one of the best investments I could have ever made on myself and my baby. Shahar provided a path for mental, physical and spiritual readiness. She has not only helped to prep my body but has also given me a key into my mind and spirit, so that no matter where I am or whatever is thrown in my direction...I am safe. I am home. “ -Yezenia

"I had the honor of working with Shahar as an instructor for both prenatal and postnatal yoga for my second pregnancy. Shahar is an incredibly knowledgeable instructor with a deep understanding of the female body and the changes it goes through during and after pregnancy. I was able to take private sessions with her after my baby was born. She works one on one to provide personalized focal points for healing and strengthening. Interestingly enough, she is also a therapist as well as a mother of two and provides great insight concerning the challenges and emotions of being a mother. She provides a gateway for a continued practice outside of the studio and with my children! And she is also a wonderful community resource." - Ayla Christman

"I looked forward to that time each week to connect. For myself, with my babe, and with other moms. Shahar creates a beautiful environment for this. She also catered each class to the needs of the mother's in the room - as week by week our individual needs changed." - Meredith Haberfeld

"It’s as if you blended my yoga class with my weekly therapy and then threw in a little science and life coaching, and I’ve never felt better! " Belle Savransky,

“Shahar has been my prenatal yoga teacher since I was 2 months pregnant, and her class has totally saved my life. She creates such a beautiful and intimate space where you can connect with yourself and others, and at the same time learn so much about what is going on with your body and what you can do to feel better at each step of the way. It is so empowering to understand what you are experiencing -- and knowing how to deal with it!

Shahar’s Birth Partner 101 workshop has the same great energy as her yoga classes: it is very hands-on, fun and SO useful. You will connect with your partner, laugh a lot, and learn about so many different postures and tricks for your partner to support you before, during and after labour (including sleeping positions, stretching, etc.). I was so relaxed after the workshop like I had not been in a long time! As she always does in her yoga classes, Shahar takes care of each couple, explains you the why of everything through anatomy and other disciplines, and goes out of her way to make sure you get the most out of the class and leave with any specific concerns or questions addressed. Since we took the workshop my husband and I use some of the postures and exercises we learned with Shahar on a daily basis.” - Irene

“It was super fun, and it helped me understand what my wife will need from me -- including during the last months of pregnancy, as things start to get a bit harder every day. The class also gave us the opportunity to think together about our expectations for the birth, to open up about our fears, and to get mentally prepared for what’s coming.  You can’t miss it!” Daniel (partner)

“I had practiced prenatal yoga with Shahar for months before doing the partner workshop so I was thrilled to have my husband simply be in her presence! She is an abundance of knowledge and has such passion for her work that it is palpable. 
She worked with my husband and I so intimately that when the session was over, I felt 100% understood. I felt ready and prepared and confident in myself and my partner. 
She spent her time unraveling the intricacies of a pregnant woman’s anatomy and gave my husband the tools to easily identify and focus on parts of my body, sounds, and positions that would benefit me in a spiritual, physical and emotional way. 
When the special day arrived my husband and I actually did most everything Shahar taught us. I attribute my amazing labor experience with Shahars classes and workshop. I promise you it will be the best investment you’ll ever make.” -Yezenia & Issac

“I take Shahar’s prenatal yoga class regularly so when I learned about this workshop, I knew I had to sign up. It was so nice to for us to take a hands-on, interactive, informative and really fun(!) class together as we get ready to meet our babe. Since this is our first child, labor and delivery is a bit scary to us both, and it was comforting to talk about how to support one another, and for my husband to learn what he do can do to best support me during the rest of pregnancy, labor/delivery and post-partum period.  There were so many useful techniques and tips that we never would have known about, and it’s great that we can start using them now. We’ve been using the sleep position we learned in class nightly! 
I couldn’t recommend this class more as a safe space to address the discomforts and fears of pregnancy and birth. We all got the personal attention we needed which is so important as every woman is different in what works and feels right for her. 
As soon as we left the workshop, I asked my husband what he thought and he said ‘I now understand why you love Shahar’s yoga class. I’m excited to have a better understand of how I can best support you physically and emotionally throughout the rest of this journey.’” -Abby & Bryan
