In answer to Elena, at any age yoga can be a challenge but it should not be a deterrant to not try it. I teach all ages and at age 12 it can be a challenge. The most important thing is to find a class that suits your level of ability. If you are pregnant a prenatal class is wonderful or a restorative is great as well. Start of gentle and then work your way up. Handstands are fabulous!!!


Would love to have a Fertility Yoga Class in RI!!!

many thanks,


Hi, I just started a fertility yoga sequence and the day after I did this, my period started and is in full swing. It was two weeks early? Could the yoga have started it early?



I've started yoga practise 2 months plus ago to aid in my fertility. May I know if there are any yoga poses that are not recommended after ovulation? This is the period where pregnancy may take place so I'm eager to know if any poses are harmful then.

Blessings. I teach a yoga for fertility workshop at Golden Bridge Yoga In NYC, and at physician's offices in New Jersey. We do practice restorative yoga at the end of the workshop, yet there are quite a few other Kriyas and Asanas which assist in fertility. I have seen them work wonders. Connecting with your breath and opening your subtle body is extremely beneficial as well.



Im currently taking yoga for fertility classes to aid in getting pregnant> I heard gentle and restorative yoga is the only way to go and you should relax the core instead of engaging it to assist in this. I have backed off from power yoga etc..Also, is hot yoga not reccomended if you are ytring to get pregnant? I miss my regular yoga clases but dont want to take any risks!!
