Specialized Yoga Can Enhance Fertility




Diana Zic, RYT, RPYT

Diana Zic, of Pulling Down the Moon Holistic Health, is offering six weekly 90-minute Yoga for Fertility classes from 5:30 to 7 p.m., from January 23 through March 6 (no class February 20) for $105 ($220 value—not transferable to other yoga for fertility classes). There will be a community (free) class from 10 to 11:30 a.m., January 13.

       Zic states, “Our clinical study findings showed a promising benefit in that when our six-week yoga for fertility program was implemented, our students experienced a 20 percent anxiety reduction.” The course was designed by yoga teachers and former fertility patients Tami Quinn and Beth Heller to meet the needs of women trying to conceive.

       Zic says, “This class is a journey into the healing powers of yoga and how this ancient practice can help calm and heal the body, clear the mind and lighten the heart. Participants will learn a series of yoga postures designed to improve fertility by increasing blood flow into the pelvis, releasing stress and anxiety and balancing life energy flow in the body. We explore teachings from yoga philosophy to create the family we are meant to have.”

Location: 770 N. LaSalle, Ste. 800, Chicago. Preregistration is absolutely required. For more information, call 312-321-0004 or visit PullingDownTheMoon.com.
