GROUP CLASSES in YOGA and MEDITATION
Yoga is a magnificent form of preparation for all creative activities and having a regular yoga practice is a beautiful way to support optimum fertility and reproductive health for men and women. Rather than think of yoga as one more thing you can do to help get pregnant or as an addition to any treatment you may be receiving for an “infertility” diagnosis, we believe that yoga should be something that you do for yourself. Enjoy!
Our classroom environment is kept to a comfortable temperature and we offer non-competitive classes that are ideal for women and men that are actively trying to conceive. All yoga and meditation classes on the schedule are excellent for supporting reproductive health. Check here for this week’s schedule of yoga classes. Tuition for group classes and private sessions can be found here.
YOGA for OPTIMUM FERTILITY
Approximately four times a year, Sharon Rudyk offers a 2.5 hour workshop ($45 or $35 when you pre-register online) for women who wish to use yoga to support optimum fertility and reproductive health. In this 2.5 hour workshop, designed for women, we look at the creative energy of fertility and explore ways to support that creative energy through yoga. The type of yoga that supports fertility is nourishing and helps women release stress through movement, gentle stretching, breathing exercises and deep relaxation. The active poses and stretches help to release deeply held tension in the body, support the endocrine system and tone all of the interior organs. In addition to a discussion on how a regular yoga practice can help with fertility, we will practice a 45-minute yoga session together and a deep relaxation technique called Yoga Nidra. All participants will leave with a hand-out that provides a 20-minute yoga practice that they can do at home on their own and suggestions for books, CDs and DVDs that may be of help. This workshop is excellent for all women who are considering pregnancy. It may be of particular benefit to women who are experiencing or who have experienced fertility challenges. This type of nourishing practice is also beneficial to women who have irregular menstrual cycles, endometriosis, pelvic pain or pms. This workshop maintains the individual integrity and privacy of every woman participating and no one is asked to divulge their reasons for attending or to discuss their personal fertility experience or condition. The entire goal of the practice is to find comfort and joy in the body as it is, release tension and leave feeling calm, relaxed and hopeful. Absolutely no experience with yoga is required for this workshop, but all women should be cleared for physical exercise by their physicians.
