Saturday, January 28,    1:30-4:30 pm

 

The Hatha Yoga Center, 4550 11th Avenue N.E.,  Seattle  98105

 

 

The Yoga for Fertility Workshop is designed for women or couples who are trying to conceive, either naturally or through assisted reproductive technology.  We will use specific yoga postures for each phase of your monthly cycle,  to stimulate and tone the reproductive system.  We can also help regulate the body’s hormone levels by addressing the endocrine and nervous systems through yoga postures, breathing and relaxation practices. Yoga is also a well-recognized stress-reducer, and chronic stress has been shown to adversely affect fertility. In a recent Harvard-based study, women participating in a yoga and relaxation program increased their chances of pregnancy by almost 3 times. 

 

The class environment is small, personal and supportive.  The yoga will include gentle poses, conscious breathing, and relaxation. We will be doing some partner work, so it is very appropriate for couples; however, individual women are also welcome. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Beginning or experienced yoga practitioners are welcome.   For current yoga practitioners, Yoga for Fertility is highly recommended so that you can to learn how to adapt poses during your monthly cycle.
