Clearlight Gerald and Mika Rock invite you to schedule specialized private sessions in fertility yoga to support your overall wellbeing, to reduce stress and to help create favorable circumstances to invite pregnancy with or without reproductive assistance.
Fertility Yoga is offered as a series of private meetings with each session being tailored to your own individual needs and circumstances. These sessions include dialogue, breathing exercises, gentle yoga (accessible and adaptable to all bodies), and guided meditation. You can choose to meet with either Clearlight or Mika, who will assess your unique needs, and provide you with specific, personalized yoga and meditation practices that will vary each week, depending where you are in your cycle. In addition, each session always includes practices to directly improve your overall felt sense of wellbeing.
Yogaspace classes are now held at the new studio location inside of the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex in NDG/Westmount, 2100 ave Marlowe, near metro Vendome. Pregnancy yoga and childbirth classes, Yoga with Baby, Mindful Yoga and Yoga Nidra classes - all with Clearlight - are offered here.
