Yoga Classes to Help with Fertility Issues
Diana Zic, a certified Institute for Integrative Nutrition health coach with a focus on fertility, 200-hour registered yoga instructor and 95-hour prenatal yoga instructor, is teaching a four-week Yoga For Fertility class ($15 each) from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m., September 7, 14, 21 and 28, at CocoonCare, for women trying to conceive naturally or by assisted reproductive treatment. Zic says, “In these classes, we will incorporate postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to help promote blood flow to the heart and pelvic areas, stimulate the reproductive system and help to regulate the hormonal system.” This workshop can be a safe haven to discuss your experiences with other like-minded relatable individuals.
There will also be a Yoga for Fertility Workshop ($35/$40 after September 9) from 10:30 to noon, September 16, at North Shore Fertility.
Driven by her own struggle with fertility, Zic’s mission is to create a supportive environment that enables men and women to speak freely about their fertility goals and create a health program tailored to their unique situation. “Basically, I work with individuals to get them in their most healthful state so they can become more fertile,” she says.
