FIT FEATURE: CHANNING ANDERSON

Channing saw there weren’t a lot of options for mamas to yoga with new babies. Most "Mommy and Me" type classes don't start until the baby is older. I wanted a option for new mamas to get out, bond with other new mamas, and move a little, while bonding with baby. I'm so fortunate Pink Lotus and Rooted have given me the space to provide this valuable service to new mamas.
