Fertility, Pregnancy, and Postpartum
Practical Yoga Therapy for Reproductive Health
The reproductive time of life can be a perfect time to make lasting changes to your health that will not only improve your happiness and well-being, but will influence the health of your family for years to come.
If you are planning to conceive, are expecting a child, or are already a parent, you know the stress and worry that can come from wanting to have good physical and mental health. I have worked with people in this phase of life for years, and know that it is not always a smooth path.
I am here to support you during this time with an expansive toolbox for body, mind, and soul. Yoga therapy can help with fertility, managing pregnancy and postpartum symptoms, and helping you to stay grounded on a journey that will take you through an abundance of change.
If you would like encouragement, guidance, and a kind ear during this time of your life, please schedule your free consultation phone call today. As with all of my coaching and teaching, I will work with you to create program that will help you have a better understanding of your own body and mind so you can navigate this journey in the way that works for you.

Meeting over 5 weekends starting in April 2022, this course will prepare you to care for students through the whole reproductive process, from fertility to pregnancy to postpartum and beyond.

We will learn how to support students with a wide range of knowledge, learning from both medical and yoga experts to understand how to care for students holistically. The course will include study on the physical, mental, and emotional needs our students have and the practices we can safely provide.
