Holistic Fertility Support with Tenderness

Nicole has experienced firsthand the overwhelm, uncertainty, and complete lack of control when the road to pregnancy is challenging. After years of trying and undergoing several rounds of fertility treatments, she ultimately conceived her daughter through IVF in 2017.  This brief sentence holds within it a very heart-wrenching and grief-ridden journey that you likely are experiencing as well.

This experience leaves an imprint on us and changes how we view and move through life. It is a transformation that we never asked for, but we can practice leaning into support and making space for whatever we are feeling, witness it, and allow it to move through us.

Nicole’s programs are designed to support those who are trying to grow their family, whether you have been trying to conceive for a while or just starting out, and will hold space for the hope and uncertainty this experience brings. She is passionate about sharing nurturing practices that nourish your body, mind, and heart with tenderness and create spaciousness for all parts of you to coexist during this challenging time.

Release & Restore ~ Pelvis & Heart

4-Week Series

Tuesday, May 7 – 28

7:15pm (75 mins)

Fertility Support – 2 Sessions (*Optional*)

Sunday, May 5 & 26, 10:30am

The series combines the nourishing practices of Supreme Release Yoga (SRY) and Restorative Yoga with a focus on tending to your pelvis and heart. When you have experienced challenges with fertility, you can experience a disconnect between these two regions. The intention behind these classes is to open the pathway between these two realms so you can move forward with more capacity and compassion, reconnecting to yourself on a deeper level to offer more clarity and ease. 

SRY includes soft, gentle, and supported yoga asana (postures) that position the body in particular angles to promote an inner alignment that allows for release of muscle tension, with an emphasis on the pelvis and spine. When you create more spaciousness in these regions, you can cultivate a general sense of stability and feel more anchored within.

Each class will end with a longer-held, supported, and nourishing restorative shavasana that will allow the body to be free from effort, offering spacious stillness and silence to retreat within. 

Classes will also include a guided awareness that will be deeply restful, relaxing, and rejuvenating where you may touch the Yoga Nidra state (yogic sleep) and pranayama utilizing your breath to come into alignment with your inner life force.

This class is appropriate for all levels of fitness and experience as well as any point in a natural or medicated fertility process. In the event you do become pregnant during this program, it is also suitable during the first trimester of pregnancy.

This series will be held in studio and also online through Zoom. Recordings are available throughout the series and the holidays to practice on your own at home.

This practice requires a cushioned surface like a yoga mat, bolster (or 2 – 3 blankets), 3+ blankets, and 2 blocks. For those attending in studio, everything you need is there but if you have your own props that you’d prefer to use you are welcome to bring them.

If you are joining us from home, you will need something to elevate your legs that resolves arching in your waist, like a chair, an ottoman, or the seat of a couch.

Fertility Support Sessions

This 4-Week Series is open to anyone who wishes to attend and is a lovely practice to nourish both you and your partner while trying to conceive. You can also bring along a dear friend to provide additional support. 

The Fertility Sessions will offer community gathering and will only be for those trying to conceive or bring home a baby in any way. Participants are welcome to send in questions prior to the session and stay anonymous if they wish. Nicole will be crafting these sessions based on the needs of the participants and will include wisdom teachings from the yogic tradition to bolster you at this time along with guided awareness and/or breathing practices. Sessions will also be recorded for later viewing.
