Guest Teacher instructs the following:
  • Yoga for Fertility with Darrien Minnie
  • Purpose :
    Many women are on a fertility journey. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and 1 in 8 women are experiencing difficulties in fertility. The World Health Organization has declared infertility as a disease. Research shows that women who are diagnosis as infertile have equal levels of anxiety and depression as women with cancer, HIV and heart disease. Most women do not share or speak about their journey. This results in isolation and can lead deeper into depression.

    We know that yoga and meditation has many benefits. I believe that yoga for fertility allows women a safe open space for them to share their journey, emotions and experience in a group of women who understand and empathizes and are open to holding space for each other. Fertility yoga benefits the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical journey. While I have been on my own fertility journey I have met many women and hearing their stories has sparked a passion in me. I want to be able to offer a place for these women to heal and to find community where they are not alone and they are understood and supported with love and light. I would like this to begin in the Chinook Yoga Studio as they practice yoga that is gentle and calming and calling in a connection to their future baby. I hope to host community talks with special guest speakers and I would really like to see Chinook Yoga to be able to offer this to our community. Since I believe Carla and myself are the only yoga instructors that have a focus on this journey.
