welcome to mamashanti


My name is Nina Isabella, I am the founder of Mamashanti Yoga for Pregnancy and Birth, a genuinely warm and thoroughly contemporary practice. I share private birth preparation and postnatal yoga therapy sessions from my studio near Daylesford, Victoria and via the magic of Skype. 

Active {conscious & engaged} Birth is a unique program of yoga that’s seamlessly integrated with contemporary and inspiring childbirth education, designed to help you to bring your child into the world with dignity and grace.

Womanly Yoga is all about lush and lovely practices to build strength; sustain flexibility; cultivate Life-Long Pelvic Floor Integrity and truly appreciate your gorgeous womanly self.  

A belated thank you to you following the birth of my daughter six weeks ago. I attended many of your prenatal yoga classes in the lead up to my labour. I ended up being 2 weeks over and was induced however the strategies and breath work you taught came into their own for the labour and I’m proud to say I didn’t have any drugs for the 9+ hour experience. 
It’s amazing how breath can calm your body so you can ride out the pain. I found that intense focus was the key and if I lost that the pain took control of me instead of the other way around.
 I was on the most amazing high at the end of it all – I had a beautiful healthy girl looking up at me, there was no more pain and I had done it without any drugs. Feel like I can do anything now!! 
So thanks for doing what you do and the way you teach – it’s so refreshing, practical, beautiful, calming, reassuring and empowering! Thank you so very much
