Fertile Grounding — coming soon!

Many of you know and love Jennifer Colletti's yoga classes. Here at Blooma she teaches prenatal yoga, BYOB yoga, BYOB partner workshops, and now, Fertile Grounding Yoga fertility workshops. What you may not know about Jennifer is that her own journey to becoming a mother was a challenging one. After many tests and two rounds of in vitro fertilization, Jennifer birthed sweet baby Beckett in 2007!

While struggling to get pregnant, Jennifer and her husband found that they longed for a sense of community with others going through a similar process. Naturally, Jennifer found solace through yoga.

Now, she is creating a community for men and women experiencing fertility challenges. Fertile Grounding Yoga workshops are 6-week fertility workshops geared toward women who are either just beginning to walk the path of getting pregnant or those who may already be in the midst of fertility treatments. Incorporating meditation, yoga, and educational components such as nutrition into the workshop, Fertile Grounding aims to nurture your body, mind, and soul.

Her next session at Blooma begins Saturday, Feb. 6, and runs through March 13; 2-5 p.m. Sign up by clicking here, clicking the "Workshops" tab, then scroll down until you see "Fertile Grounding Yoga."

Jennifer and her husband, Michael, recently shared their story during a film festival in New York. They entered a contest to create a film with an "uplifting story of infertility." As one of three finalists, Jennifer and Michael traveled to New York for the screening, and met with other couples, doctors, and industry professionals all trying to shed the stigma of infertility. Watch the video here. Well, done, Jennifer! Thank you so much for sharing your story, wisdom, and open heart with all of us.
