Yoga Therapy for Infertility:
Easing Physiological and Psychological Distress in a Time of Uncertainty
Sundays: March 24 – April 21
10 – 11:30am
Current studies show yoga therapy may reduce the physiological and psychological impacts of infertility by lowering the stress response along the HPA (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal) axis, improving resilience and increasing feelings of wellbeing (Domar et al., 2011). As heart rate variability increases, the nervous system calms, promoting emotional regulation. Yoga therapy addresses the biopsychosocial and spiritual model of integrative care by navigating the relationship between one’s body, mind, and emotions with the tools of breath-work, meditation, and movement through the lens of mindful awareness and compassion.
No prior yoga or meditation experience necessary.
