The Yoga For Fertility program at Practice Longevity is designed to help lessen the emotional and physical stress and difficulty of trying to conceive with tools designed to help you create an internal environment that is hormonally balanced, relaxed, and receptive to pregnancy.
As a long time practicing yogi, I, like many, came to the practice for the physical benefits. I soon discovered that this was just a small part of the practice of yoga. I began to find serenity and contentment throughout my entire body (physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual) through yoga. It was then that I knew I wanted to share my love of the practice as well as it’s many healthful benefits with all who are interested.
My journey to become a certified yoga instructor led me to receive my 200-RYT training through the Integrative Yoga Therapy program at Haleybird Yoga and Natural Wellness Studios. During this training, I interned for eight months with yoga therapist, Tina Romenesko, assisting weekly in a therapeutics yoga group class. My desire to learn more on the therapeutic benefits of yoga led me to continue my training with Dr. Timothy McCall, Yoga as Medicine, Level 1. Training with Dr. McCall offered me greater insight to not only yoga and yoga therapy but other means of holistic healing. I am also the certified as an Aqua Kriya yoga instructor, another therapeutic-based practice.
In our Yoga for Fertility series, I will draw on my knowledge from hatha yoga traditions with the safety and healthful benefits gained through the therapeutic study of yoga. My hope is to create a caring, nurturing environment which allow us to clear our mind and body of the unnecessary and replace with a joyful, positive life force energy.
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.
