From the Publisher
"The photographs and personal stories from women trying to conceive make the book accessible and easy to follow even for those who are not familiar with yoga." Library Journal
"Armed with this book, women can learn to relax, minimize stress, and hopefully boost their fertility in the process." Beth Weinhouse, editorial director, Conceive Magazine
For women struggling with fertility, motherhood can seem "as far away as the moon and just as hard to reach," to quote the yoga instructor authors. Quinn and Elisabeth Heller have both taken their own fertility journeys, and they made it their mission to pass along their experience using yoga to "pull down the moon." They, along with the input of acupuncturist Jeanie Lee Bussell, outline a 12-week program based on the idea of integrative care for fertility, or ICF. The program includes advice on diet, exercise, sleep, relaxation, and other aspects of life that impact fertility. Each chapter provides an activity for the week designed to introduce various yoga postures or other mind/body/spirit recommendations like journaling. The photographs and personal stories from women trying to conceive make the book accessible and easy to follow even for those who are not familiar with yoga. Likely to find an audience among women who are open to the mystical and spiritual nature of yoga, acupuncture, meditation, and prayer; suitable for public libraries that cater to that crowd.
