I WAS HOOKED AFTER THE FIRST CLASS

Before Fertile Hope Yoga, I felt lonely, lots of despair, and severely broken as a woman. After the first class, I was hooked. I had a tribe of women who gave me hope, challenged my limiting beliefs, and acknowledged my body was capable. A group of women who got me and only needed to give me a smile to acknowledge all will be well. They had my back and I had theirs.

I Finally Got Off the Emotional Rollercoaster

I was just going through the motions of the fertility rollercoaster and keeping everything inside. I was afraid to share with others until I met the ladies from Fertile Hope Yoga who understood what I was going through.

EVERY YOGA POSE BROUGHT ME CLOSER TO MY DREAM OF HAVING A BABY

My fertility journey prior to CNY Fertility and Fertile Hope Yoga can be summed up into one word: CLINICAL! I worked with two other fertility centers before I found CNY Fertility through the recommendation of a colleague.

With the first two centers, I was treated as an individual who was part patient, part guinea pig. I felt that the staff at those offices didn’t have any compassion for how emotionally, mentally, and physically draining the fertility journey is.

Fertile Hope Yoga allowed me to have time for introspection and reflection and through that, gave me the opportunity to make choices that has brought my life to a more balanced completeness. The yoga program gave me tools to make space in my life for good vibes and positive thoughts by putting an end to negative self-talk and focusing on what uplifts me rather than brings me down.

Being able to express my thoughts and emotions about this journey allowed me to truly focus on each yoga pose and how those movements were bringing me closer to my dream of having a baby.

I REALIZED MY STRENGTH AND ABILITY TO KEEP GOING WHILE EXPANDING MY FAMILY

The yoga for fertility program is a vital lifeline for navigating the fertility world when struggling to begin or add to your family.  When I first joined, I was so inspired by the FHY community that I ended up sharing way more than I anticipated (for a shy first timer) and walked away with a renewed sense of hope and a feeling of belonging.

After losing my first pregnancy at 19 weeks, I wasn’t sure how to pick my life back up.  I joined FHY just 3 weeks after my loss and through many tears I was able to share my story out loud.

The compassion and support I received was incredible. I left realizing that I was way stronger than I ever thought and felt that I would be to be able to push through and continue on my journey to creating the family I so desperately wanted.

FROM LOST AND ALONE TO INFORMED AND EMPOWERED

Fertile Hope Yoga is an amazing program. We would have been completely lost without it. It provided us with much needed information and insights about the process and connected us with some fantastic people! We were clueless and the program helped us feel prepared and informed. Joining FHY was the best decision we made in our fertility journey. – Sarah Pastecki

The magnitude of information and support we received throughout our journey was unparalleled. We felt confused, lost, and alone until we joined the fertility yoga program. I have learned how to process information and how to reach out to others for support and guidance when needed. – Katie Pastecki

FERTILE HOPE YOGA IS A SAFE SPACE

In the beginning my life was all doctor appointments and shots! After finding Fertile Hope Yoga, I had a set of tools to help me at anytime. Plus, I developed friendships with other women and we all support each other as parents now!

Fertile Hope Yoga is a safe space to share my experiences with women who had a similar journey and together we learn how to treat our bodies right.
