Class Description: 

If you're looking to get pregnant, it can help to incorporate a practice that helps you welcome the baby into your body and into your life. Fiji filmed this shortly after finding out she was pregnant with her second baby and shifting her perspective, relaxing and opening up to the possibility of pregnancy is an important part of conceiving.

Yoga for fertility
Luise 2 weeks ago

This practice has a healing effect on me. As I found out recently, that I am pregnant unexpectedly , I didn't have such a preparation. The decision to continue the pregnacy is not an easy one for me- regarding my head, but not my heart. The exercise of shifting perspectives is exactly what I need and it helps me to hanlde difficult moments. Thank you Fiji for this support You are my favourite yoga teacher.

Ok during pregnancy?
alisonbo 2 months ago

Hi! I'm wondering if this yoga sequence is ok to do during the first trimester of pregnancy? I noticed your prenatal videos were just for 2nd and 3rd trimester so after using this flow successfully for fertility (!!!!!!) I'd like to keep going but want to make sure it's safe. Thank you so so much for all that you do!!!!

Great practice, but Lower back ache
danamarie500 2 months ago

Really enjoy this both physically and mentally. However, I find that my lower back really aches during that part at the end with the bolster under my back. I have to remove it and even having my knees bent bothers my lower back too, so I've been elevating my legs onto a chair. Is this ok? For now until my back is more flexible - I'm hoping.

Yes it is more than ok, it is listening to your body!

Yes it is a great option to put your legs up if your lower back is getting sore! Listening to your body and making the right modifications for you is the best way to ensure your practice is healing and not harming. It is my intention with this video that women are finding a way to once again connect with their body in a loving and accepting way, taking care of yourself and honoring your needs is beautiful and perfect.

I am in love with this class

I have always wanted to make yoga part of my life, I started waking up a bit earlier and doing this every morning and i love it. I find it so calming and at the same time invigorating, its an great way to start the day! I really love how Fiji instructs, for the first time I find I actually breath at the right times and can just relax into the routine, which really does make it feel like a meditation.
Thank you so much!

Coming back

When this practice came out, I did it at least twice a week, but normally more often than that. It's very upsetting when people tell you that "all you have to do to get pregnant is relax", but I got hooked on Fiji's tone, reassuring and never condescending. It was a great comfort for a hard time. I'm happy to say that I got pregnant after about two months and I felt all the while that I was in good company. Thank you.

Happy to hear it helped bring you comfort

I remember hearing those words myself and wanting to have a practice that was more about being loving and not judging towards my body. Reconnecting in a loving way and lowering my stress around pregnancy ultimately helped me to get pregnant with my second.

Thank you Fiji!

This practice has become my daily meditation.

Beautiful, possibly triggering
Joanna Moore 1 year ago

This is a beautiful practice – calming, gentle and mindful, but still containing some standing poses, to remind us of our strength. Women who have anxiety as a result of their fertility challenges may wish to skip from 22.45 onwards, or press mute, as from here Fiji talks about the stress hormone cortisol and, for the sensitive, the fact that education is being coupled with remedy may be triggering. Hearing this certainly sent my cortisol levels right back up! (I guess as I already know about cortisol and am very sensitive to being ‘lectured’ – quickly feeling guilty or a failure.) For those undergoing IVF treatment due to some clear physical impediment (such as having no or damaged fallopian tubes) phrases such as ‘the seed can easily make its way’ may be upsetting, even as these may be intended symbolically. If you do mute or stop at the suggested point, the next two poses are just a lengthy reclined bound angle pose, followed by a seated prayer pose, so you can easily complete the session. All in all, a wonderful healing practice and very appreciated as there’s very little out there in the way of guided fertility yoga.
