More than seven million people of childbearing age in the United States experience infertility. There are several reasons why a woman may not be able to conceive and medically, infertility means not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying (or six months if a woman is 35 or older). A couple struggling with fertility may experience problems with ovulation, fertilization, implantation or medically unexplained infertility. In a Harvard Study conducted, researchers found that women that were introduced to yoga and meditation were almost 3 times as more likely than the control group to become pregnant and have a baby within one year of participating in a 10 session program.
I’ve been trained in Yoga for Fertility directly by Lynn Jensen, author of Yoga for Fertility, A Journey to Health and Healing. I also draw on other modalities to help you achieve your deepest state of relaxation and healing as you embark on your path to motherhood.
Yoga for Fertility classes are available as private one on one sessions as well as group classes. Please contact me directly if you are interested in this offering. Spaces are extremely limited and on a first come basis.. You will learn how to reduce your reactivity to stress, calm the mind, and sync up your yoga practice to match where you are at in your monthly cycle. Yoga for fertility has several benefits for women trying to conceive, ranging from increasing blood flow in the heart and pelvic areas to stimulating your reproductive system by focusing on ovaries and the uterus. During classes I will lead you through a calm and gentle yoga practice to help build prana (life-force energy) in the body. I’ll teach you how to use meditation and visualization as part of your daily practice at home.
You can participate in classes if you are currently trying to conceive naturally or through ART (artificial reproductive technology). Please be sure to let me know beforehand.
You can join Yoga for Fertility classes if you are looking to sync up your monthly cycle with your yoga practice.
