Opening Soon: Mama’s Wellness Joint

A new Center City wellness center focuses on the needs of moms and babies.

Looking back on my years as a teenage monster (I remember it clearly; I turned 20 just last year), I can safely say that my mom deserves an award—or at least an “I Survived My Daughter’s Hormones” T-shirt. It’s clear: Moms and moms-to-be need all the lovin’—and support, and resources—they can get.

Enter Mama’s Wellness Joint. After building a local following through years of teaching yoga in Philly, Paige Chapman decided to found a family wellness center at 1100 Pine Street, set to open on October 5th. Mama’s Wellness Joint was born out of the idea that Philadelphia women and families need a safe and welcoming space to learn more about how to better care for themselves and their children.

Chapman will provide women and families with a range of alternative-wellness workshops and yoga classes meant to address the needs of women and their families before and after giving birth. On the jam-packed roster are adult, prenatal, postpartum and kids yoga classes; Mommy and Me and Daddy and Me classes; workshops including meditation, ayurveda and nutrition; and fertility-support groups. An in-house masseuse and retail space with all-natural products for mom and baby round out the offerings.
