Fertility yoga is based on gentle flowing hatha yoga movements. These encourage blood flow to the hips and increased circulation and connection to the pelvic area, abdomen and heart. In combination with breath connection, this helps release tension in the mind and body. These gentle flowing movements provide a gateway to restorative yoga. The body is propped in positions of physical ease to support deep relaxation and energetic, emotional and mental balance.
The focus in fertility yoga is offering a safe space where gentle movement, restorative postures and breath connection help elicit the relaxation response. This, in turn, helps release held patterns of tension in the mind and body. It also increases a sense of trust and well-being in the body. This is important during a time of stress in which individuals often feel let down by their bodies. We also offer specific guidelines on an appropriate practice to accompany an IVF cycle at all its different stages.

When I met Cherie, I felt like I'd finally found the teacher for me. In only one session a week, I quickly saw a change in both my energy levels and muscle tone. Cherie's classes are dynamic and leave you feeling like you've had a good work out.Jemma Forte
My Yoga Mama practice keeps me balanced, energised and sane. It takes a huge effort to drag myself out of bed on a Saturday morning. After practice, the stress and strains of the past week disappear and I feel strong enough to take on the world.Karen Gill MBE
