What makes this yoga fertility friendly and what can a student expect?
These yoga classes are designed with 2 main focuses in mind – the first is increasing blood flow into the lower abdomen. In Chinese Medicine we see this as invigorating Blood circulation and supplementing the Kidney Qi. In Yoga, this is achieved by opening the hips and consciously directing breath into the abdomen. And the second focus of these classes is to open the chest – this can help with reducing stress and increasing our resilience. In Yoga this is balancing the Heart Chakra; in Chinese Medicine this is referred to as calming the Shen, or calming the Spirit. It also relates to balancing the Heart. When the Heart and the Kidneys are in balance, in Chinese Medicine theory this helps improve fertility.
Will this class be safe for women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Techniques such as IVF?
Yes! These classes are developed with IVF and fertility treatments in mind. We will do no deep closed twists which may not be beneficial or comfortable for women with enlarged ovaries, and we will keep our hearts below our head for the most part to minimize any light-headedness. As will all Yoga classes, wherever you take them, the practice is yours. You are encouraged to take breaks or come out of any shapes that do not feel comfortable or serve you in that moment.
