with Marilyn Allysum

Practicing Tai Chi Qigong postures for infertility promotes a calm refreshed mind and spirit while you restore the body to its optimal potential!

Course Description:
 · Preparing the Mind Body Connection through Tai Chi Qigong: There are a variety of restorative Tai Chi Qigong postures involving guided movement, mental focus and breathing techniques for infertility that encourage the body to be more responsive to conception. Postures for infertility are best described as fertility postures because they spark hormone production, promote full body restoration, and increase circulation to reproductive organs to encourage responsiveness. As a Meditation in Motion, we awaken our peaceful and centered self. In physical preparation, we tone and strengthen the muscles that support reproductive organs, improve spinal alignment, and learn ways to enable better flow of Qi vitality.
 ·  Reducing the Physical Effects of Stress:   Tai Chi Qigong is perfect for dealing with one of the most pervasive mind/body fertility challenges: stress Often, stress is caused by the inability to get or stay pregnant. Emotional pain, sadness, anxiety, and frustration can generate chemicals in the body to weaken immunity and have an effect on the body’s “welcome” for a new life. Our use of relaxation breathing techniques, combined with the flushing out of physical toxins, provides an antidote to the negative physical impacts of stress in all its varied forms.  
 ·  Continued Support from Tai Chi Qigong:   Tai Chi Qigong is a wonderful resource. It can also be practiced during pregnancy, creating a soothing internal environment as it enhances the strength and flexibility of your muscles and joints, which can help during childbirth.
