Yoga to Support Fertility with Nicole Blackwood

3-Week Series

Sunday, Nov 24 – Dec 8

7:30 pm  – 9:00 pm

This series is specially designed to support women on their fertility journey. For some women, this uncertain time can be stressful especially if you have been trying to conceive for some time. Participants will be guided through restorative yoga postures to calm the nervous system and bring them to a place where they can rest deeply. This form of yoga utilizes longer-held postures completely supported by yoga props such as blocks, blankets, and bolsters (cushions). Some gentle yoga postures and movement will be introduced to release tension with an emphasis on supporting reproductive health. Relaxation and mindfulness techniques including meditation, breath awareness, and visualization will direct students toward a place of inner peace.

The intention for this series is provide tools and techniques to cultivate your innate power for creation and nurturing, and above all reconnect with yourself. Trying to conceive can be all-consuming, and these practices can help you reunite with the person you were before your life took this direction, supporting your whole being as you continue your journey to parenthood.

This class is kept purposefully small to allow for individualized attention and instruction in a supportive environment.
