This 6 week class series will give you the tools needed to consciously relax through gentle movements and breathing practices. You’ll also explore how intention setting, meditation and journaling can be beneficial for the whole body to feel relaxed and at ease. No experience necessary, just an open mind and heart.
The Yoga For Fertility Program at Practice Longevity aids your fertility through the integration of specific yoga postures to gently stretch and relax your muscles and connective tissues, and increase blood flow to your pelvis and reproductive organs. Yoga classes incorporate relaxation meditation and breathing techniques to help create a state of inner awareness and a deeper sense of peace, to reduce stress, worry, and depression, and to help you regain a better sense of balance and wellness in your life.
Traditionally, Yoga Therapy recognizes that any disease or health challenge comes from a separation within the five layers, known as koshas, that make up our body. When supporting fertility, it is important to work with all these layers of our body, to heal ourselves and come back into balance. Throughout this six-week series, we will focus on healing through these five koshas: physical, energetic, emotional, wisdom and bliss bodies.
Classes are 75 minutes long and include a balance of breath-work, relaxation meditation, and mindful movement specific for fertility. You will learn how to establish a home yoga practice, including specific tips and contraindications for yoga postures to address phases of your menstrual cycle, accompany fertility treatments and your individual reproductive concerns. Classes are designed to allow for individualized instruction and community support, to help reduce stress and bring you back into balance, on all levels.
This class is designed to support women who are trying to conceive either naturally or through assisted reproductive treatments. Classes are open to women of all levels of yoga experience- beginner to advanced. Registration is required.
RESEARCH SHOWS: Studies have shown that decreasing stress may increase your chance for a successful pregnancy. One benefit of yoga is that lowering stress also has a direct affect on lowering levels of the hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol may interfere with reproductive hormone function.
In a recent Harvard-based study, women participating in a yoga and relaxation program nearly tripled their chances of achieving pregnancy.
