In-House Fertility Yoga with Instructor Tanya Neate

Tanya has been teaching fertility yoga group and private classes since 2013. The idea of running yoga classes, specifically for women struggling to conceive, came to her as she lay in relaxation at the end of a yoga class back in 2009. Yoga had become such an important support through her own fertility journey, that she began to research deeper into its benefits for fertility health. When she couldn’t find a fertility yoga class for herself, she decided that she would have to become a yoga teacher and her dream was to offer the kind of yoga classes she would have loved to attend during her own challenges. So began many, many years of study to first obtain her yoga teaching qualifications, then to specialise in yoga for women’s health, and then complete the four years of yoga therapy training.  She now mentors and trains other yoga teachers all over the world in this specialised field. Never in her wildest dreams did she think that she would teach yoga, yet it was her fertility journey that set her on this path. Along the way, Tanya also studied and qualified to become a counsellor and loves the balance of offering therapeutic support in the clinic counselling and then on the mat supporting clients with the tools of yoga.

Teaching yoga at Number 1 Fertility feels like full circle for Tanya as Dr Lynn was her specialist all those years ago and now she has a chance to support other women on their journey to motherhood.

BENEFITS OF FERTILITY YOGA

  • RELEASES EMOTIONAL TENSION and toxins that build up over time when not processed (tension of any kind obstructs energy and blood flow)
  • BALANCES THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM by reducing the levels of cortisol – the stress hormones.
  • DETOXIFIES THE BODY by supporting the lymphatic system
  • IMPROVE DIGESTION AND ASSIMILATION OF NUTRIENTS into the body thereby creating a healthier environment for egg quality and cell growth
  • INCREASES ENERGY AND BLOOD FLOW (nutrients, oxygen, hormones) to the reproductive system.
  • BOOSTS SELF CONFIDENCE
  • Creates overall health and wellness of reproductive organs and the body, ENHANCING THE FUNCTIONS OF THE REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS to create a healthier environment for pregnancy.
  • CREATES CONFIDENCE IN OUR BODY and cultivates a COMPASSIONATE AND TRUSTING relationship with our body, and that we can and are doing to work needed to achieve successful pregnancy
  • REDUCES PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESSES OF STRESS. These are well recognized through research and studies as known barriers to conceiving. Stress is one of the top barriers to fertility. Yoga reverses the stress response and creates healthy hormone balance. While the stress response is instinctive, the relaxation response must be learned through activities like yoga and breathing.
  • CALMS THE MIND, REDUCES MENTAL STRAIN, AND CREATES MENTAL CLARITY, and freedom to see opportunities.
  • Cultivates emotional and mood stability, REDUCES ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, and helps to process difficult emotions that can cause blockages to fertility.
