Birthlight has been a pioneer of Fertility Yoga.

The course includes:

  • A clear presentation of relevant anatomy and physiology relevant to fertility-infertility, from both biomedical and ayurvedic perspectives, and an overview of options available to couples trying to conceive.
  • Diaphragmatic breathing and relaxation are central to ovarian and womb ecology, stress reduction and self-nurture. All three make up the core of Fertility Yoga.
  • Yoga Asana- with adaptations using props for comfort-  that help to support and strengthen the endocrine and reproductive system. All poses are taught with breath awareness. 
  • Pelvic micromovements -the hallmark of Birthlight- working on fascia, muscles and ligaments to decongest tissues and optimise organ function
  • Integrated use of Mudra, Sound, visualisation and affirmation
  • Teaching methods for offering relaxed and effective classes and one-to-one sessions for both women and couples, while preserving teachers’ balance and integrity. 

The course includes a comprehensive digital manual, with additional online resources.
