Relax, stretch and connect in this gentle 6-week series designed to nourish the body and relax the mind and heart. Each class incorporates a series of gentle yoga postures, dynamic and restorative, as well as breathing techniques to support women on their fertility journey. Yoga allows us to access the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing stress and helping to create a physical and emotional environment more likely to support conception. This series will also allow students to meet other women who are trying to conceive, in a safe and supportive environment. Classes are taught by Jenny Berthiaume, doula and birth educator, mother of two and yoga instructor/therapist, and will also feature guest speakers on topics such as nutrition, acupressure techniques and other pertinent to fertility. This intimate series is open to all, whether you are new to yoga or already practicing. Pre-registration is required and spaces are limited.
