In 2009 after going through years of fertility treatments with my husband, I created Fertile Grounding Yoga. During our treatments, I realized how much was missing from the process; nurturing, community, education, empowerment and a connection to the mind, body and spirit.
I designed Fertile Grounding Yoga for, but not exclusively to, individuals going through infertility. Through infertility, the stress, tension and angst in the body hardens all aspects of the physical and emotional body. Stress patterns build in the physical body and are not easily released. Yoga releases tension, emotion, and stress. It detoxifies the body emotionally and physically. Muscles and joints become supple again, the mind, body and spirit unite, and assist each other to bring a healthy state of balance to the body in preparation to receive.
The benefits of Fertility Yoga are amazing; reduces stress, reduces tension, calms the busy mind, softens stressed muscles, opens the reproductive channels, prepares the body to receive, improves blood flow, improves heart health, energizes the body, builds strength and stamina, detoxifies physically and emotionally, unites the body mind and spirit, and increases the potential for conception.
My classes, in Minneapolis, MN, encompass breath work, meditation, visualization and restorative & gentle flow yoga poses.
I currently teach 8 week Fertile Grounding Yoga workshops three times a year, a weekly Drop-In Fertility Yoga class, and am a Fertility Coach. Check my schedule page for current offerings, or you can email me to schedule a one on one session in person (in the Minneapolis area), or phone or skype outside of Minneapolis.
