Elise Bowerman Founder of Sweet Momma
My Focus

To empower women in their childbearing years. As a mother of two and a prenatal yoga teacher, I've witnessed the need for greater encouragement during this time in a growing family's life. Our modern culture has lost the value of having a village. We’re seeing it in our young families as they mature. Depressed and anxious parents are barely getting through each day; and it needs to stop.

We are stronger together.

About Elise

Since 2009 I have been teaching Hatha, Vinyasa, and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga in group and private classes. My personal practice started in 1999, at the age of 18. As a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200 and RYT 500) I have taught athletes, people with limited mobility, or healing from medical treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation, along with folks looking for a new method to maintain or improve health.

As a classically trained dancer, and having received a B.S. in Dance (Pre-Dance/Movement Therapy) I have a strong foundation in anatomy and physiology, along with an understanding of psychology. You'll find our time spent together offers a connection between the physical body and emotional body. These two bodies are deeply intertwined. You'll be invited to look at yourself on subtle levels with curiosity and compassion.

My focus is on empowering women in their childbearing years. Now, a mother of two and a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) and certified MuTu ProTM, I've witnessed the need for greater encouragement during this time in a growing family's life. Our modern culture has lost the value of having a village. We’re seeing it in our young families as they mature. Depressed and anxious parents are barley getting through each day; and it needs to stop. It’s not fair to anyone involved.

Women – mothers – are the backbone of the family. They are the matriarch. The decisions the matriarch makes lasts for generations after. It’s an honor to support these women as they care for themselves, their children, partners, and families.

By helping women *and men* understand what pregnancy, birthing, and parenthood is about on all levels (mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually) they then gain a greater sense of self and responsibility to this life-changing process. No woman *or man* is the same after their child is born.

Where did everyone go?

You need more help after birth than before. When you’re pregnant, people open doors, carry things, and smile at how much you glow. Once baby comes, where do all those people go? You’re on your own now, expected to know everything, and take care of your baby like every other mom. As if doing it all yourself is some bullsh*t right of passage. We all love baby, but let’s not forget about mom.
