Working with Fertility North patients through yoga and meditation to assist in fertility.
I’m very excited to be teaming up with Fertility North to offer you the opportunity to share 1.5hrs of blissful yoga & meditation sessions on a Sunday morning, with the next course starting 31 July 2016. Both practices are clinically shown to be beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety, assisting you to release toxins from your body, to create more blood flow and positive connection with the womb as well as supporting the body to relax. These are all very important things to do if you are preparing to have a baby or trying to conceive. The practice of fertility based meditation and yoga can offer you take home skills that you can call upon when you are beginning to feel anxious, depressed or overwhelmed, enabling you to retain greater balance and to reduce the “flight fight” response. This assists you to create a safe and welcoming environment to nest in for baby, not to mention an easier, more pleasant place for you to reside in too!
It’s one of life’s irony’s that when we are having difficulty conceiving we become stressed about the situation which unfortunately makes it more difficult to fall pregnant, as research shows that stress upsets the balance required for conception to occur. So in conjunction with Fertility North, we would love the opportunity to support and nourish you at this time, to offer you a space to come & connect with yourself, an escape from your everyday routine and life, an opportunity for you to experience and cultivate some Blissful relaxation. Throughout the sessions we will incorporate some aromatherapy, sound, crystals, different forms of meditation and visualisation, chanting and philosophy. All classes are suitable for all levels of practitioner whether you are brand new to these practices or someone with experience. We ask that you bring your own mat. This course will run for 4 weeks.
