Groceries, Laundry, Cleaning, Sex…Remember when sex wasn’t a chore? 

Tami Quinn, Pulling Down the Moon co-founder BS RYT and Laura Deitsch LCPC

Tuesday, October 9th from 6:00-7:00pm

Free Webinar

The process of going through fertility treatment can be stressful and lonely even when we are in loving relationships. “Scheduled” sex and feeling like we are “turning our bodies over to science” can take a chunk out of the very act we once found so pleasure filled.  Join sex therapist, Dr. Shameless (Laura Deitsch), for a fun reminder that sex doesn’t have to be (re)productive, it can just be fun.  We’ll chat about renewing that spark and provide fanciful reminders of what you found sexy about each other in the first place.  We’ll discuss re-framing sex from a baby making task to an opportunity for pleasure. Warning: For mature audiences only. We’ll be talking about sex, toys, fantasies, etc.  Register here.

Chilling Out: Benefits of Yoga for Egg Freezing 

Ali Lautz RYT RPYT and Valerie Landis, Fertility Advocate, Creator of Eggsperience/Eggology Club as featured in the New York Times

Monday, October 22nd from 6:00-7:30pm

Free In-Center Event, Chicago Office

Our yoga practice for this event will focus on those who are or will participate in egg freezing. In contrast to high intensity activities like running, spinning, and impact aerobics, yoga encourages blood flow into the internal organs by releasing tight musculature in the hips, groin, and low back while stimulating our body’s parasympathetic “rest, digest, and nest” hormone response. Learning to relax is a key part of re-establishing hormonal balance in our body. We are also thrilled to welcome guest speaker, Valerie Landis, sharing her own personal egg freezing experience with an opportunity for Q&A before you start your own egg-freezing journey! Register here.
