Is Fertile Body Yoga the right program for me and my fertility journey?
When should I start my practice to get the most benefit from Fertile Body Yoga?
How and Why?
Fertility and Stress
Research shows, with overwhelming evidence, that it is stressful to be infertile and/or undergo ART. Not a huge surprise!
Studies have also shown that those with a lower stress level are more likely to become pregnant, especially when doing IVF.
If you are tired of hearing that you need to relax to get pregnant, which stresses you out more – KEEP READING!
Pregnancy and Stress do not have a cause and effect interaction with pregnancy. Women all over the world are getting pregnant while totally stressed out, and many women are not getting pregnant who are super chill. Stress does not negate pregnancy! It is one variable of a very complex biological and hormonal dance.
Yoga and Fertility
Research is showing that the use of Yoga and other mind/body practices to mitigate the inherent stresses of assistive reproductive therapy and infertility can greatly reduce the symptoms of stress.
Those that regularly practice Yoga are better able to handle the ups and downs of treatment, are overall less stressed out, and have higher pregnancy rates.
And even more specifically, studies looking at Fertility Yoga programs from 6 weeks to 3 months long show that those participating had statistically significant higher rates of pregnancy for Frozen Embryo Transfers.
Yes to all of that!

Greetings and Welcome.
If you are reading this, then you are probably here because you are experiencing some set backs in becoming pregnant or staying pregnant – I want you to know that I share in this path with you.
Having gone through 3+ years of fertility treatments, experiencing pregnancy loss, and eventually having two successful pregnancies gives me first hand knowledge of how stressful and cyclical these times can be. I’ve walked the walk – at times with grace and contentment, and times with despair, frustration, and fear.
Teaching Yoga has been a part of my life since 2006, and over the last few years I have trained and specialized in Fertility, Prenatal, Postnatal, and Restorative Yoga.
After teaching weekly Fertile Body Yoga classes and workshops in Boston since 2016, I have supported hundreds of people on their family building missions.
I can tell you that, without a doubt, you have the ability through Yoga and Mind/Body practices to optimize your fertility efforts, by reducing stress and nurturing the health of your body, mind, and soul. I hope that you will give me the opportunity to support you throughout your journey, whatever it may look like. ~ Kerry
