Fertility Yoga

Last night was the first class of my company's new Fertility Yoga Program. It was 
something I have been creating for nearly two years and I CAN NOT tell you how 
excited I was to see if finally come together. I wanted the program to be as Mind/
Body as possible and I really think (or hope) that I have hit that mark. 

We hired a fantastic yoga teacher and an assistant for her that does massage, 
adjustments and offers alternative poses if someone is feeling uncomfortable (think
fertility drugs) . The ladies will definitely get lots of hands on 'lovin' while they are 
relaxing in different poses, especially since there are 2 teachers and we cap the class
at 6 students. The assistant is also a nutritionist so she is able to answer and talk 
about any nutrition issues the class may be having. 

We also added a therapist to the first and last class to facilitate a group therapy 
session (another part of mind/body) and the ladies in class really seemed to open 
up and talk about how they are feeling. Also included are fertility teas, essential oils, 
breath work, relaxation techniques and a journal for the full 8 weeks. I even added
some of the guided meditation work I have learned through my hypnosis training!

Squeeeeeeeeeel, I am so excited to see this start running, I really hope this can 
become a place for healing and enjoying oneself again. I think this is the biggest thing 
that was lacking in the fertility clinics, I felt like I became just a walking uterus and 
no one cared how I felt or how I struggled. I hope this class can change some of that 
and give us back our voices a little bit!!!!
