This series is 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 or exploring other avenues to bring a child into your life. Nicole will hold space for the hope and uncertainty this journey brings while helping you prepare your body, mind, and heart for the journey ahead
Nicole knows firsthand the stress, uncertainty, and complete lack of control experienced when the road to pregnancy is challenging. After undergoing several rounds of IUI, she ultimately conceived her daughter through IVF. She is passionate about sharing the practices that helped nurture her and build resilience during this time, and continue to bolster her.
These classes include gentle yoga postures with an emphasis on releasing tension and nourishing the pelvic region. Restorative yoga postures will help calm the nervous system, mitigating the effects of stress and anxiety. Other practices such as meditation, breathing techniques, and guided relaxation will help you reconnect with yourself.
The intention for these classes is to provide tools and techniques to cultivate your innate power for nurturing, starting with yourself. Trying to conceive can be all-consuming, and these practices can help bring forth your fortitude and support your whole being.
Nicole is also a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and will also provide nutrition and lifestyle advice, with an emphasis on supporting your body’s stress response.
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.
A typical class will include 15 minute of education and discussion with the remaining time devoted to a yoga practice.
