Fertile Yoga – Free, Open to the Public, 3 Times a Week. Why Not?
Free, open to the public, three times a week, three different locations, supported by board certified reproductive endocrinologists (fertility doctors).
Here’s my question.
Where are you?
This is not to my lovely men and women who come regularly. You know who you are. And you know how I love seeing you and having you in class. My three favorite times of the week are at Fertile Yoga, guiding you in class and seeing how much you soften, feeling your relief.
I will repeat my question, maybe louder this time.
Where are you?
Yoga for Fertility – Where Are You?
I have to admit it doesn’t make sense to me. Classes are after work, in three different locations. They are designed to support your efforts in trying to conceive, specifically for men and women in fertility treatment. Specifically for fertility treatment cycles like IUI’s (artificial inseminations) and IVF (in vitro fertilization).
They are free. Fertile Yoga is free. Whether you are a patient of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), in treatment with another fertility practice or not in treatment at all.
So. Where are you?
I don’t get it.
And I’m not trying to shame you. But I do want to meet you.
I want to help you while you’re in fertility treatment.
I offer a practice that can truly help you be in treatment and stay in treatment more successfully. Until you reach the goal of a successful pregnancy.
Why Should I Go To Fertile Yoga?
No, Fertile Yoga will NOT make you pregnant. You know that. I know that.
Fertile Yoga will help your level of stress.
It will help your feelings of distress.
It will help your feelings of isolation.
It can relieve, to some degree or another, those feelings and more.
And, in case you are concerned about:
a. never having done yoga before
b. not being flexible
c. weighing too much or too little
d. hating yoga clothes
e. you won't be able to "do" class
f. seeing someone you know
g. disliking being in silence
h. being out of shape
Please keep in mind that this is a gentle, restorative class. The main focus is on breath. And all of us breathe. Really. Even if you don't breathe well, you breathe. Sometimes, often, we don't even stand up in class. Occasionally we lay down for an entire hour and I guide you through a meditation that is gentle and relaxing. Always, each participant experiences class on their own terms and in their own way.
If I haven’t met you yet, I am looking forward to it.
Free, open to the public, three times a week.
