While 1 in 8 couples in the US experience struggles when trying to grow their families, navigating your fertility journey can be a very isolated experience. We need community to help us bear the burden of grief, anger, anxiety, sadness, and frustration. We need community to say, “You? Me too.”
We are not meant to live life alone. We are created for community. Yet, when life gets hard and we find ourselves in the middle of a struggle, we find ourselves retreating further and further into isolation. Finding community is hard. Finding a community that can empathize and understand what you are going through, well that feels practically impossible.
Grand Rapids Natural Health and Jenny Tanis Counseling & Yoga have decided to intentionally create a safe space for you to explore mindful breath and movement in a community of people who understand your struggle. Come experience a gentle yoga class that will aid in relaxation, increase blood circulation and energy flow, balance hormone levels, and promote self-love. Then, choose to stay after and be in community with others navigating their own personal fertility journey.
During the Yoga for Community series, Counselor and Yoga Teacher, Jenny Tanis, will lead you through a gentle yoga class designed specifically to help address your current concern. Jenny will share with you the physical and emotional benefits of the movement and breath-work so that you can incorporate them into your daily routine.
Additional resources and community support information will be provided. Following class, if you feel comfortable, you are invited to stay for tea and snacks and connect with other individuals who are navigating a similar journey. There is medicine in “me too”. Join us and find the healing power of a compassionate community.
RSVP online or by calling (616) 264-6556. Admission is $10. Please email Jenny Tanis, LMSW, RYT 200 with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
