Hi, we are Lela Beem and Cassie Rodgers, creators of Amala School of Yoga.

Welcome to our offerings for expecting students. The courses here will support you through your pregnancy, birth and postpartum recovery.

If you are pregnant or recently had a baby, we welcome you to explore these affordable offerings that will fit easily into your busy life.


We are thrilled to work with an amazing group of educators and professionals to offer you these valuable courses.

What to expect:

  • All of these courses are made to support you through this most important time.
  • You'll find that each course has the flexibility you need to fit into your busy life and you will have access to them for an unlimited time.
  • Though these courses are pre-recorded, we are real, live people who are interested in helping you. You will have access to us and will be able to ask us questions at any time.
  • Ask us if you need financial aid and we will work with your budget, no questions asked.



Training Teachers

Since 2014, we have provided trainings and workshops in the Chicago area for yoga teachers and health professionals to specialize in supporting people in the perinatal life stage. We are known for our skilled faculty, innovative curriculum and extensive teacher mentorship.



Empowering Families

It is our mission to offer spaces and experiences for the expectant parents we reach, through all of our programs, to feel more confident, sensitive and empowered so that they can better support themselves and each other.


Building Communities

At the heart of our service is a vast resource network that supports both our training graduates and our yoga students. We strive to make yoga more accessible to all communities by partnering with individuals and non-profits to help build and sustain new programming.
