Meet Yoga for Fertility Founder Lynn Jensen, E-RYT 500, RPYT, C-IAYT, MBA
Welcome to Yoga for Fertility with Lynn Jensen! I developed my Yoga for Fertility program in 2002, after several years of dealing with my own challenges with fertility. Since then, I have been offering several Yoga for Fertility classes each week, as well as retreats, workshops and teacher trainings. To date, there are over 2,000 “graduates” of my Yoga for Fertility programs, who are now busy parenting. I have been teaching yoga continuously for over 20 years. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance, at the 500-hour level, and a Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists since 2013. I am also a registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher.
I currently teach several live, online Yoga for Fertility classes each week, and offer Yoga for Fertility Teacher Trainings several times a year, in the U.S., internationally, and online. I also offer private Yoga for Fertility instruction and Fertility Coaching in person or via Zoom. Since 2012, I have taught twice weekly Yoga for Women classes at Microsoft.
My book, Yoga and Fertility, A Journey to Health and Healing, and my video: Yoga for Fertility, Simple Practices for Fertility Support, are available on Amazon and on my website. The video is also available in Spanish. I recently released my Yoga for Healthy Hormones video, which is available on this website, and on Vimeo. For several years, I taught the yoga portion of the Mind/Body Program at Pacific Northwest Fertility clinic in Seattle. In 2006, I developed and taught the yoga program for a National Institutes of Health study researching the effect of yoga on menopausal symptoms. I often am asked to present on topics related to yoga and women’s health,, including at RESOLVE Conferences, Fertility Symposiums, and Yoga Conferences, and on various podcasts.
My Yoga for Fertility program is based on over 25 years of personal yoga study and practice, and my own experiences with fertility challenges. My focus is using yoga therapeutically to address women’s health issues, through the physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual healing power of yoga. I have studied extensively with many internationally-known yoga instructors, including Angela Farmer, Rod Stryker, Julie Gudmestad, Dr. Claudia Welch, and my long-time teacher Bob Smith, author of “Yoga for a New Age”, as well as many others. I am a certified Master Teacher of Energy Medicine Yoga, with founder Lauren Walker. I have also studied Qigong with Master Teachers Claire and Jerigtu of Inner Mongolia, since 2013. My yoga practice and teaching reflect the combined wisdom of these highly experienced master teachers, as well as my personal study and practice.
Prior to starting the Yoga for Fertility program in Seattle, I spent 15 years managing international sales, marketing and distribution for high-tech and software companies. During these years, I stayed sane with my personal yoga practice, and became a specialist at hotel room yoga and airport yoga. I also spent several years during this time dealing with fertility challenges and treatments. My son finally arrived after I left my corporate job and started my own international consulting company. This change also allowed me more flexibility to be home with him. When my son was 2, I realized my dream of founding the Yoga for Fertility program, in order to share the benefits of what I had learned on my journey with others who are dealing with fertility challenges. I look forward to meeting you soon!
