“Keya met all of my expectations and more as my birth doula! She was extremely thorough, attentive and supportive. I don’t think I could have asked for a better doula! She was able to remain calm when I was freaking out and very emotional. She stayed grounded amongst all the chaos in our home. She was peaceful and kind and present. She was able to recognize when I needed her to stay but was unable to articulate it myself and that truly exceeded my expectation. She pushed me gently when I needed pushing and was very accepting when I needed space. Keya has amazing intuition and such a loving energy!”
“I could not have gotten through labor without Keya nor would I want to even imagine her not there with me! She got to my house at the perfect time and helped me start to dance my baby out. Her coping tools and labor navigation not to mention overall warmth and nurturing nature was exactly what I needed. Consider yourself lucky to have such a beautiful soul at your birth”
“Thanks to Keya Merah Nkonoki, I have a healthy, happy yoga baby. Now that my son Sage is two years old, his favorite thing right now is going into down-dog (using his head with booty straight up in the air) and arching into backbends with glee! During my 2nd and 3rd trimesters, I took prenatal yoga with Keya after work throughout my pregnancy. I loved how she always brought a different spiritual message to each class, but the same rock centered energy. She even brought us gratitude rocks at one class, and I still have mine that says “free”… As luck (or the universe) would have it, I got to have Keya at my side, helping me with yoga stretches and breathing, all throughout three long days of my Labor! She was assisting my doula. Everyone in my family was so impressed by Keya’s grounded energy and sweet light she brought into our home and my birth process. She let me squeeze her hand, lean into her with each surge (contraction), do lunges in our courtyard – whatever it took to keep things moving and flowing… My beautiful, healthy son Sage and I are eternally grateful. It was a blessing for me to be able to gift Keya with a private Sacred Infant Massage session in her home when her son Jai 3 was just two weeks old. Namaste…”
“I first had the pleasure of meeting Keya in a prenatal yoga class at YogaWorks. I’d previously been to another similar class at another location and was disappointed. There was just a bit too much feeling your inner child, lets prance around to mantras for my liking. Keya’s class was the complete opposite, and nothing over the top. She’s super grounded, personable and the class focused on breathing, positions to help an achey mom and great music. In fact, I liked her so much we took a pregnancy workshop with her (which we LOVED). So for those who are hippie-(ish), like our family, but don’t want to sit in too much oming and incense. She is the perfect go to! Highly recommended!“
“Keya was an amazing doula–brought so much comfort, emotional support and education to my first birth. Couldn’t recommend her more.”
“Keya is an amazing instructor! I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have taken prenatal yoga with several instructors and Keya is by far my favorite! I go to her classes in Culver City and Mar Vista and enjoy every minute of the experience! She is very hands on and helps you with the poses, her classes are perfect for any level of fitness and at any stage of pregnancy. She is great about modifying the poses so you don’t feel intimidated if you’re not quite the yogi you used to be pre-pregnancy. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere.“
“One of the best things about my pregnancy experience was all the yoga and workshops that I did with Keya. I am so thankful for Keya’s support and guidance, and especially for her amazing prenatal yoga classes, which truly prepared my mind and body throughout my pregnancy! My doctors and nurses kept complimenting me and my husband for how calm and prepared we were for managing pain and for pushing. It was so much more peaceful and relaxed than I ever could have imagined because I kept remembering all the advice to breathe and to keep my shoulders and jaw relaxed. Ultimately the contractions were relentless and were back to back, so I did the epidural, but all that pelvic floor work paid off because it took less than an hour to push. Pretty good for a first time mama!I’m also so glad we took the opportunity to arrange a private pregnant Partner At Om PLAYSHOP because it was such a special experience. My husband and I both had so much fun despite it being my husband’s first time ever doing yoga. Keya walked us through so many techniques, but I especially loved the rebozo scarf. We had a fun time practicing exercises we could do together, but the tips for managing early labor helped us tremendously when it came time for the real deal. The breathing exercises got me through some pretty intense contractions! The best part by far was how my husband and I got to connect during the workshop. It got us started on a dialogue about what we need from each other and it truly helped us to be a team during labor. Thank you so much, Keya!”
“Keya is a great doula! Thorough, patient and a good balance between professional and warm, empowering and advisory. She explained things in a rational way and always showed up just a minute or two early. She was a skilled advocate for me at the hospital. She was kind, composed and assertive when making requests and communicating my needs. I appreciated that I could also go to her yoga classes and have a more holistic relationship. After the birth, she visited me bearing lactation cookies and juice. She visited again a couple of weeks later to teach me and my husband infant massage. It was generous and we are grateful to have met her.”
