Yoga and Fertility:
A Journey to Health and Healing
by Lynn Jensen and Jill Petigara
Yoga for Fertility helps prepare your body for a successful conception and pregnancy.
Trying to conceive? Yoga for Fertility classes and workshops are designed to support women or couples who are trying to conceive, either naturally or through assisted reproductive technology. Yoga for Fertility uses specific yoga postures and practices to stimulate and tone the reproductive system, enhance the flow of energy and circulation through the body, and balance hormone levels.
Yoga helps regulate the body’s hormone levels by improving endocrine (glandular and hormonal) function. Yoga is also well-recognized as a reducer of stress, anxiety and depression, all of which can accompany, and exacerbate, fertility challenges. In a recent Harvard-based study, women participating in a yoga and relaxation program nearly tripled their chances of achieving pregnancy.
Yoga for Fertility Classes are offered weekly in both Seattle and Redmond. Weekly classes are generally held in 8-week sessions, and pre-registration is required. Visit the Class Schedule to learn more. Yoga for Fertility Workshops and Retreats are offered several times a year. I also offer Private Yoga for Fertility instruction, tailored to fit your schedule or specific situation.
