MOM + BABY + YOGA = MOGA
From humble beginnings
I always knew that I wanted to be a mom, but I pictured things going a bit differently. I was a new mom, recently single, and had just moved to a new city to be closer to my family. My self-confidence suffered during a difficult pregnancy and I more than doubled in weight. I felt very alone and isolated, and I desperately needed to find my mama tribe.
After a bit of reflection, I realized there was no way I was the only one going through this. It was time to create a space where health was focused on the whole mama and not just the push to “get your body back”. My personal mission is to ensure that every mama has a support network. I want to create the largest mom community in the world.
I am so proud to see that MOGA™ has become a home away from home and community for many mamas. MOGA™ is about community and bonding; with yourself, with your child, and with your motherhood village. Welcome to our MOGA™ family. I am so glad we found you!

The magic behind MOGA™
Opposites attract and Amy and Hannah are living proof! They met in 2015 when Hannah became the lead yoga instructor at MOGA™. Amy is the education-obsessed, business-loving, fast-paced power mom. Hannah is the definition of calm, kindness, and zen. They bonded over a shared passion for empowering women and a mantra of “birthing your power.”
Amy and Hannah wanted to make mom and baby yoga accessible to all mothers and decided to take MOGA™ online. With the launch of MOGA™ Online, moms all over the world can get their confidence back. MOGA™ is about taking back time for yourself, without sacrificing time with your baby.
MOGA FOUNDER, B.COMM, MBA, YOGA INSTRUCTOR, CanFitPro PERSONAL TRAINER
I started MOGA™ by teaching Mom & Baby Yoga at my midwife’s maternity clinic completely by donation for the charity Mamas for Mamas. MOGA™ was the first-ever donor to this amazing movement powered by Mamas. I wanted to create a space that was focused on the mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing of mamas.
My personal mission is that every mama deserves a community and my goal is to create the largest mom community in the world.
Yours in motherhood.

Supporting women in a full circle of motherhood fuels my soul. I am honoured to teach mamas around the world during this intense, yet beautiful time in your lives. We are all connected–through birth, the hard days, the brilliant days, first steps, first colds, lost teeth–the list goes on! Yoga and breathing are the best tools I can give you to help you with your birthing and mothering journeys.
Thank you for inviting me into your home. Please tag #mogamoms to share how my classes helped you on your journey.
With love & gratitude.
MOGA FOR EASTERN NORTH AMERICA, YOGA INSTRUCTOR FOR MOGA ® MOM & BABY YOGA & MOGA ® PRENATAL YOGA, STOTT PILATES TRAINED INSTRUCTOR, BA PSYCHOLOGY, CHILD & YOUTH STUDIES EDUCATION
Before joining MOGA™ in 2018 I was constantly manifesting the next step in my life’s journey. With two wonderful girls, a background in child and youth studies, child psychology and women’s studies, I knew I had so much more to give. Upon meeting Amy and Hannah, I knew that my life’s passion and experience were finally going to collide. By opening my own yoga practice in Oakville, ON I was able to create the type of supportive, loving environment that I longed for during my own maternity leaves. I had a dream for moms and their babies to come together in solidarity, while providing valuable sensory learning for their growing babies. By finding new amazing instructors throughout Eastern Canada and the US, I wake up every day with the goal of giving all mothers the opportunity to celebrate movement, relationships, and compassion.
With love & passion.
