Yoga4Fertility {Review and Giveaway}

***The giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone that entered!!***

Do you recognize this lady?

This is Brenda Strong, you know, the voice of Mary Alice Young on Desperate Housewives {one of my FAVORITE shows}?

Did you know that Brenda suffered from infertility?

Yeah, neither did I.

But she did and because of her struggles, she created a line of different yoga videos and products to help with infertility.

From the website Yoga4Fertilty.com:

Strong Yoga4FertilityTM

Strong Yoga4FertilityTM is a proprietary approach to teaching yoga for fertility created by Brenda Strong. This program uses the ancient healing wisdom of yoga and applies it to the modern problem of reproductive difficulty. Using the specific postures and breathing techniques to open the body from the inside out, Strong Yoga4FertilityTM helps to release tightness in muscle and connective tissue, increase blood flow to reproductive organs and invites the mind and body to facilitate its own healing capacity. Brenda has combined yoga asana, visualization, meditation, pranayama, qi gong and bioenergetics to help support the reproductive organs and increase a woman’s connection to the “divine feminine” while decreasing stress.

When I was contacted and asked if I’d like to try this out, I thought “Sure, why not. I’ve got nothing to lose. I’ll take anything that could possibly help me on this journey.”

Let me just tell you that 1. I have not worked out in a LONG time. Which is sad since I was so into it not all that long ago and 2. I’ve never really done yoga. Nothing against it, just has never been my thang.

I got the DVD, though, and I popped it into the DVD player and got myself all situated on the floor with my mat. When Brenda first came on, she was sitting on a nice, cushy looking couch talking in a soft voice and telling me what I was going to be doing. I have to admit, it was a bit cheesy. I almost fast forwarded it, but thought I’d better at least listen to what she had to say since it might be beneficial. It was informative.

After a few minutes of her talking, she was suddenly in a luscious yard on a yoga mat starting all the different yoga poses. Because I’d never done it before, I had a hard time concentrating on being relaxed and also paying attention to what she was doing.

Another thing I have to admit. It was a bit too long for me. It’s about an hour long I think and I’m just not very good at sitting / laying still for that long. While I did eventually find it relaxing, I know I couldn’t do this every day.

While I don’t think this yoga stuff is going to get me pregnant, I’ll take all the help I can get. This was a fun and relaxing {after I got some of it down} way to enjoy some exercise and laugh at myself while doing so.

Guess what? I’m not the only one that gets to try this out. One of you does too. And even if you don’t think you want this, maybe there is someone in your life that you think would benefit from it. Everybody loves gifts, right? =)

  31. I am cracking up at your description, beccause I was totally the same way the first time I did a yoga video – just completely uncomfortable trying to figure the moves out and not being relaxed at all! I couldn’t figure out how all that lying around was a good workout too!

    And I write to relax… works every time! 🙂

  32. To relax I actually do yoga. I love it, although it took about 5 years for me to start liking it. I also meditate and get acupuncture.

  33. And I’m a brand new follower! Nice to meet you!
