    What does the class include?

    Yoga is an excellent therapy for reducing stress which is helpful to everyone. There will be a focus on breathing techniques for stress reduction and enhancing fertility. The yoga postures are all suitable for trying to conceive. Each class will finish with a relaxation and meditation specifically for fertility.

    What do I need?

    • A yoga mat if you have one (a soft floor/carpeted area if not)
    • Some comfortable clothes that you can move/stretch in
    • A cushion for support
    • A long scarf
    • A large blanket for the relaxation session


    Who is this class suitable for?

    Our yoga classes are suitable for all stages of the menstrual cycle including the two week wait; and our yoga instructor will endeavour to highlight throughout the class where to make slight adjustments according to where you are in your cycle and if you are menstruating. However, fertility yoga is NOT suitable for pregnancy – including early pregnancy following a positive pregnancy test – so if you have a positive pregnancy test, we would recommend you seek out a pregnancy yoga class.

    Fertility-focused yoga is extremely complementary to Assisted Reproductive Technology, however, if you are currently going through fertility treatment we recommend that you avoid the physical yoga postures (asanas) for a period of 48 hours post retrieval and post implantation and thereafter you can begin the physical practice again during the two week wait.

    Of course, the meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques) are always safe to practice and you can partake in these at the beginning and end of the class.

    If you are using stimulation drugs you may feel uncomfortable in some positions, particularly prone (lying on your tummy) so please be mindful of this and do not do any postures that cause you too much discomfort.

  • Mindfulness

    Mindfulness can help us to build resilience, stability and connection during these very  difficult times. It can help us to find balance and even joy amidst uncertainty and worry. Through the practice of mindfulness we learn how to take care of our stress so that it doesn’t overwhelm us and in so doing we learn how to take care of each other.

    Who is this suitable for?

    Our free Mindfulness programmes are suitable for beginners and for those who have already some mindfulness experience. Hosted on Zoom, the programme will include a course e-manual along with recordings of the mindfulness practices to use each week at home between sessions.

    Many participants have remarked on the feeling of connection and intimacy that they have experienced from attending the online meditations and classes since the start of the pandemic.

    ‘The pandemic has been very isolating for me, as for many others, and it has been very positive to make new friends via the network.  The mindfulness course was genuinely life-changing for me. I’ve tried counselling many times and whilst useful, it really doesn’t compare to what I have gained from Veronica’s course.’

    ‘Thank you so much, I truly enjoyed and have learnt and taken so much from it. It is changing my life. And you are wonderful Veronica, thank you so much.’

    For many years I have tried mindfulness, ‘self-taught’ using various apps.  However, the course really taught me what mindfulness is and how to practice. The 2 key factors for me were being taught by someone so experienced; and the second was doing it in a group.  I think the enquiry sessions reinforced what happens when you practice.’

    Thanks for providing such a great class. I am so grateful for it. Veronica is a fantastic teacher’

    ‘Learning a lot about myself and just great to have that support and connectivity that we are all craving at the moment.’
