Testimonials 

I feel the difference in my life since I have starting practicing yoga with Malaika. I first started during pregnancy and it really relaxed me.... I really recommend the pre-natal sessions. I then continued after having my baby as a way to ease my body back into a exercise routine. Plus, it is my "me time", ah time when... as I sit on the yoga mat, I am more than just wife and mother, I am simply ME.... Taking care of ME. Thank you Malaika sharing your practice with me.

We loved our Sunday afternoon maternity yoga sessions, they were a relaxing way to end the week. It was very informative and really good to meet other new parents to-be, every class was filled with positive energy and good vibes. It was really nice to be able to share the experience with your partner too! Massive thanks to everyone involved in the creation.

About Us 

 

Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe
Yoga Therapist & Doula (Birth Companion) 

The past six years as a yoga teacher have expanded my vision for what is possible. My intention as I teach is to build supportive, safe spaces for fellow students of life, to explore their own possibilities. Social justice is at the heart of my work, I believe firmly that individual transformation and healing is deeply connected to collective growth. My teaching draws on vinyasa, hatha, and restorative styles. In 2009 I earned my 200-hr yoga teaching certification through Yoga to the People  in New York City, learning from instructors such as Sam Chase and German Bravo. I've also trained with Iyengar teacher Bryan Legere in Ventura, California on the Great Yoga Wall®. My parents are Purna and Kripalu yoga teachers respectively, and together we co-founded Spice Harmony Yoga Studio in Grenada. Everyone comes to the mat with a unique set of life experiences, in a unique body. My work is as a facilitator, a guide as each student unlocks their own set of tools and steps into the fullness of their being.
