Fertility workshop
Fertility Yoga & Traditional Chinese Medicine

With José de Groot and Martine Cornelissen

This workshop integrates Fertility Yoga with Traditional Chinese Medicine-based knowledge and practices to help you on your Fertility-journey. Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or pursuing assisted reproduction therapies (ART procedures / IVF), this workshop will teach you how to improve your fertility.

 

We have designed a unique series of yin-yoga-based poses that combine Fertility yoga with the ancient Chinese knowledge on Fertility.

 

The workshop will help you understand the basic principles of TCM on Fertility. It will teach you how to apply these concepts through specific yogaposes, combined with certain acupuressurepoints. It will also teach you the energetics of the different phases of your menstrual cycle and more importantly: which poses in which phase are beneficial when trying to get pregnant.

 

Fertility Yoga

Fertility yoga uses a specific series of yoga poses that have a positive effect on reproductive health. Every posture will help to nurture, support and strengthen the endocrine and the reproductive system – the hormonal headquarters. We focus on lowering the physiologic response to stress, balancing your hormones, and increasing the reproductive organs’ response to hormones.

Your endocrine system is essential for proper hormonal balance, so using fertility yoga poses that promote healthy endocrine function is just as important as using poses that open and support the reproductive organs as well.
