Yoga for Fertility Classes

NOTE:  All classes are being offered ONLINE ONLY at this time. 

In a Harvard-based study, women participating in a yoga and relaxation program had a pregnancy success rate almost 3 times greater than women who were not in the program!

Success comes from taking charge of the things you CAN control on your fertility path, including your physical, emotional and mental health.  When you join my Yoga for Fertility classes, you immediately become part of a very supportive community, with opportunities to connect with others in my classes.  Find the support you need to realize your dream of being a parent!   At this time, classes are Live Online classes, meeting via Zoom, or On-Demand classes. 

My Yoga for Fertility classes are designed to help to balance the body’s hormonal system, increase energy flow, reduce stress, and nourish the reproductive organs.  I offer modifications and specific yoga postures to support each cycle phase, whether you are TTC naturally, or using assisted reproductive technology.  I also incorporate yoga philosophy concepts that offer a way to work with the emotional and mental stress of fertility challenges. Yoga for Fertility addresses mind, body and spirit, optimizing your ability to conceive and enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

Class enrollment is limited to 16 students, so the class environment is small, personal and very supportive.  All experience levels are welcome. I also offer modifications for anyone doing assisted reproductive treatments such as IUI, IVF or FET cycles.  If you are already practicing yoga, it is highly recommended that you attend a session of Yoga for Fertility to learn how to use yoga to support your fertility, and how to adapt poses during various parts of your cycle.

I developed the curriculum for the Yoga for Fertility classes, starting in 2002, based on my extensive research on yoga and its effects on hormones and the reproductive system.  In class, we also use my book Yoga and Fertility, A Journey to Health and Healing In my teaching, I draw on my 20 years of yoga teaching experience, and my own personal challenges with fertility.  I am also a Certified Yoga Therapist, and a Master Teacher of Energy Medicine Yoga.

Sunday Evening Yoga for Fertility + Energy Medicine

ONLINE Class

Sundays  5:30-7:00 pm PDT     Sept 11 – Oct 30  (8 weeks)    
I am so excited to offer this class combining Yoga for Fertility and Energy Medicine!  
Energy Medicine works with the energy systems in the body, and allows us to target them in very specific ways. We use techniques which support hormonal balancing, and which clear and strengthen the key meridians that are important for optimal fertility.   This yoga practice is also very effective for stress reduction.
A combination of Yoga for Fertility and Energy Medicine is like giving our Yoga for Fertility practice a boost!   I am a certified Master Teacher of Energy Medicine Yoga, and am also a Qigong practitioner, so I will be bringing practices from both of these into our Sunday classes this session.
This class is open to women who are currently trying to conceive, either naturally or using assisted reproductive technology.  All levels of yoga experience are welcome. If you are currently taking other yoga classes, Yoga for Fertility class will teach you how to modify your practice to better support fertility, including for each phase of your cycle.

Testimonials from past Yoga for Fertility students:

I would especially like to thank you for what you’re doing! I believe that without yoga I wouldn’t be happily pregnant right now. It helped me a lot on my journey and encouraged me to be positive. And I’ve learned to BREATHE!   Thank you again!   A.O.

“Thank you for what you do. I’m confident that my yoga practice and your support were key to me finally having a positive outcome.” G.H.

I am completely blown away!  Positive HPT and just heard back from the doctor’s office….it’s Official!!  I can’t even think straight – I am so stunned.  I wanted to thank you for your workshop and the poses…..legs up the wall!!!   Thank you ever so much!  L. I.

I found yoga to be so helpful to me this past cycle, physically, mentally and spiritually. And the safe, nurturing environment of the class is a wonderful way of finding support during what can otherwise be a difficult and challenging time. Good luck to you, and to your future classes, as I’m “graduating!”  E.L.

You and your yoga class were so incredibly helpful to me. The class connected me to my body in new ways that really helped me heal from my miscarriages and prepare my body for future pregnancies. It also introduced me to wonderful supportive people that have been a huge part of my coping during this journey. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and stories with me. I am very grateful.”  B.L.S.

I just have to say again how encouraged I am by the results I’m seeing (in doing the sequences consistently). Things that use to “trigger” me emotionally now have no impact on me (?!?!). I am so steady and regulated that I feel as though I am in a foreign body; historically I would have intense and unmanageable emotional and visceral reactions to triggers. As a highly vata individual, I am experiencing groundedness for the first time. What a gift. My marriage has improved as a result and my husband thanks you!  L.G.  (Lynn’s note:  This is from a yoga teacher who had been teaching yoga for 5 years, but had never learned to use yoga to calm her central nervous system until she took my class.  She is now pregnant – a surprise, natural pregnancy!)
