YOGA FOR FERTILITY SERIES
Tuesdays, 6:00–7:15pm
September 6, 13, 20, 27, October 4
$75
The path to fertility can be a lonely one,
but it doesn’t have to be.  Become part of
a small group of women on a similar
journey and connect deeply with yourself
and others to relieve stress and anxiety,
find support, and consciously create the
experience you seek.  Using a yogic
approach to fertility, we will explore gentle
and restorative yoga postures, breath
work, relaxation, visualization, meditation,
and intention to clear stagnant energy,
balance hormones, increase circulation,
reduce stress, improve overall health, and
move toward balance between action
and surrender. Find community, safety,
support, strength and connection in this
fertility promoting movement and awareness
series.  No prior Yoga experience
necessary.  

JULIA MARLOW FANSLER
found yoga 13 years ago through her involvement
with modern dance.  She is constantly
driven and inspired by Yoga’s medicinal
benefits, having seen first hand how
healing can be realized through all areas of
the body, mind and life.  Julia’s approach to
healing is based on the practical application
of physical postures, breath, and intention.
Having practiced fertility awareness for over
9 years Julia brings a clear understanding
of the deep connections between the mind,
the emotions, and the endocrine system.
Her teaching blends this deep body wisdom
with authentic Yoga practice and philosophy,
guiding you to a new discovery of your
body’s self-healing power.  Julia completed
her yoga teacher training at Radiant Life
Yoga, and has completed additional training

AUTUMN LEE believes above all in the
power of love and in the comfort and strength of
sisterhood. She uses yoga and meditation as a
practice to calm, heal, and connect.  It is through
our breathe and a healthy relationship with ourselves
and with others that we transcend that which
we do not need and become more fully ourselves.
She brings a servant’s heart to her classes, and a
sincere desire to create a space for personal growth
and possibility. Classes are safe, welcoming, and
foster on-going relationships. Come to class with
an open heart, a desire to find empowerment
and a investment in loving your body. Autumn
received her training at Minneapolis Yoga Center

and welcoming, and full of burning sage.
