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.
