Review

"Yoga 4 Fertility works on supporting female fertility through ancient methods of developing and balancing our internal energies through yoga poses and breath. Brenda Strong leads us through a journey to trust and love our bodies again. This DVD is a wonderful complement to Western Medicine, or for anyone who is simply trying to conceive on their own." --Pamela Madsen - Executive Director and Founder of the American Fertility Association

"I just wanted to say that I just got this DVD and I LOVE it. I am 39 and trying to get pregnant for the first time. I have not been successful, but am trying to stay positive. This yoga workout is so inspiring and just what I needed. Regardless of whether I become pregnant, I plan to continue to do yoga. After only a few weeks, I am noticing huge differences, in my body and also in ability to cope with stress more effectively. Thank you so much for making this for women who are trying to get pregnant." --Sharon Salinas

"A uniquely sensitive introduction to yoga poses for individulas experiencing reproductive difficulties achieve their goals by using yoga's ancient healing powers" --Dr. Joann Paley Gaist Ph.D - Psychologist and Co-Director of American Fertility Association Support Groups

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, relaxing yoga program March 10, 2008
I'm a novice to yoga, and have been doing the yoga on "Yoga 4 Fertility" for two weeks now. I am very impressed by the program. The instructor, Brenda Strong, clearly explains all of the positions and demonstrates these in a very peaceful garden setting. She provides well-timed cues to prepare you for the next move, and offers helpful hints to get you to move to greater levels of stretching and flexibility. Her voice is both calming and encouraging. I truly look forward to doing the program each time, and find myself incredibly relaxed by the end. As an unanticipated bonus, in just two weeks, I've noticed that my posture and flexibility have improved.

Brenda Strong has been an advocate for fertility issues for years, and is a board member of the American Fertility Association. At the beginning of the DVD, there is an informative section about how yoga can contribute to enhancing fertility. This section can be skipped on subsequent viewings. The actual yoga program shares four steps: observation - helping you become aware of where you unconsciously hold tension; breath - a great tutorial on how to use ujjayi breath to calm the nervous system linking mind and body; movement - using yoga to activate the relaxation response, releasing tension and balancing hormones; and surrender - simply letting go in each moment and being present. The program takes about 50 minutes to complete - longer if you pause the DVD for additional stretching or final resting and relaxation.

A word of caution: there are several versions of this DVD available. The copy with the photo of the woman in the dark leotard on the front is a PIRATED version. The version with the photo of a woman (Brenda Strong) in light blue pants and a pink top is the most recent version. I HIGHLY recommend that version of the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars It worked 4 me! April 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
I used the workout on this video for 5 months and got pregnant at 45. Everyone that I have given this DVD to that has used it regularly in a regimen of exercise and a healthy diet has gotten pregnant. The DVD is very calming. The routine is not difficult. The routine is not long. However, it can be broken up into 2 segments if you have limited time for exercise. I definitely recommend this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got pregnant after 5 year struggle with infertility! February 23, 2011
By M. Yang
I tried having a baby for 5 years, with 2 failed IUI's and 2 failed IVF's. I finally gave up and started to do yoga on a regular basis with the DVD. I didn't have high hopes... but I was amazed when I got pregnant after using this DVD for only 3 months!!!!! My daughter is 2 now, and I started using this DVD for yoga again to conceive my second child. I just found out I am pregnant again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga 4 fertility January 31, 2008
This DVD is excellent for relaxing! She takes time to explain every pose, even the breathing technique in detail. I have only been using it for three weeks and already noticed some "shifts", so to speak. I will say some of the moves are more advanced, even as I have been practicing with a yoga class during the week. I am really enjoying this DVD!
Best of luck for healthy babies in 2008,
Jamie Lynne

4.0 out of 5 stars Good routine, best for those with some yoga experience September 30, 2009
Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD along with Yoga Practices for Fertility, which I slightly preferred to Yoga 4 Fertility. Still, since I need a little variety, this is one that I could see using repeatedly. When I got the DVD from Amazon, I thought I recognized the instructor - turns out she is one of the characters on Desperate Housewives, the narrator. She spends a lot of time at the beginning providing background and explaining the benefit of the yoga routine. The movement section is just Brenda in what looks like her backyard. It starts out very slowly with a lot of moves to loosen the lower back and hips. Sometimes I skip that part if I'm shorter on time. There are some moves that are very specific to fertility, such as massaging your ovaries and directly energy toward your reproductive organs. At the end I feel limber and relaxed. I've been practicing yoga a few times a week for over 6 months so I found it easy to do, but complete beginners may find the routine a bit challenging.

One thing I didn't like was how the menu was set up - there is a lot of talking prior to the actual yoga practice, and there isn't a way to start at the beginning of the routine without having to fast forward through Brenda talking. The other slight drawback for me was that this was very geared toward women only and I don't think my husband would have felt comfortable joining me in this practice.
