Teaching Fertile Yoga has been my privilege for the last eight years. The people that come in for class are an ever changing, awesome (borrowing from Dr. Richlin) group of courageous, strong and inspiring women.
Infertility Inspiration #TwoFertileWords
My Fertile Yoga students inspire me. I’ve said it before and it remains true. They inspire me by showing up. By walking the walk of trying to conceive, by supporting their bodies, minds and emotions through infertility treatment.
They inspire me by checking in with themselves and seeing how they feel, below the surface. They inspire me by talking about it with each other in peer support groups (Ladies Night In), by offering each other suggestions, by listening to each other’s stories. Sometimes they inspire me just by nodding at each other as they listen compassionately to someone’s pain.
They often calm each other as they share their own stories about a procedure or protocol that another is about to experience. They celebrate each step of the fertility journey with each other, knowing that each step of fertility treatment that goes well is a tremendous relief and success. They understand each other, even when they come from different backgrounds, different towns, different upbringings, different educations. They understand the desire for a family, for a child.
Yes, very inspiring. Love my students!
