Yoga for Fertility
(Chicago, Highland Park, Online)
This six-week class is a journey into the healing powers of Yoga for Fertility and how this practice can help calm and heal the body, clear the mind and lighten the heart. At each class you will learn a series of yoga postures designed to improve fertility by increasing blood flow into the pelvis, releasing stress and anxiety and balancing life energy flow in the body. In addition to this physical practice we make a sequential exploration concepts from yoga philosophy that frame the fertility journey in a way that reveals our personal strengths, reinforces the joy of everyday life and empowers us to create the family we are meant to have. Through this class you will also join the wonderful, positive healing community of Pulling Down the Moon and enjoy the energy of all the amazing women who have shared their journey with us.
Yoga and Egg Quality: While age still matters, the thinking around egg quality has evolved over the last decade and a diagnosis of poor egg quality has the potential to change/improve. While no treatment has 100% success rate, holistic treatments like acupuncture, massage, yoga and nutrition counseling work to improve the environment eggs develop within by increasing blood flow, lowering hormonal disruption through stress management and improved sleep, and decreasing inflammation that can impair cell function.

Journaling can help to reduce stress, aid clarity, and bring about peace of mind. Whether you need time for a brain dump, a creative outlet for some pent-up feelings, or a gathering with other women, Christine’s gentle writing prompts and a supportive environment may be just what you need to feel a little lighter. Enjoy caffeine-free tea, community, and this interactive event in a calm space. No previous writing experience necessary. Register here.
Apr 22nd at 6pm: Reducing Fertility Stress One Breath at a Time! (Webinar)
Does the fertility process have you constantly holding your breath; are you even aware that you do? How about when the doctor’s office calls with an important result? Why do we hold our breath? In what way, do we believe it will protect us? Maybe our breath holding is an attempt to freeze our perception of safety in the present moment? In this class, you will discover what Prana is and why it’s important. Join Pulling Down the Moon Yoga Team Leader, Cassie Harrison, as we focus on breath awareness and breath work, how to move into a place of healing that is beyond the physical, while increasing your vitality (aka Prana) during this free webinar to support your journey. Register here.
