Sadly yoga will not get you pregnant. If you have a medical condition such as endometriosis or blocked fallopian tubes yoga will not be able to fix it. But what yoga can do, in combination with other fertility strategies is help you cope with the anxiety and the emotional burden that often accompanies fertility treatment and natural fertility. We know from research that when you are less stressed you are more fertile. This course has been created to help you manage that stress at this key time in your life.
