After doing Brenda's Yoga®4Fertility I found myself more relaxed, energetic and feeling stronger. I found I was more in touch with my body and how it felt, it was like having a deep, all over body massage, but even better.D.C.

I just wanted to thank you for all the advice you have offered through the many outlets you have! I was just recently diagnosed with PCOS and decided to make a complete lifestyle change. Through research and time I found your website and DVD and also an audio blog on the AFA's website. Even though I am not currently trying to get pregnant, the DVD has helped me tremendously with controlling my symptoms and just having an overall better life. The audio blog also helped so much. The breathing exercise you taught is a tool anyone can use and as a preschool teacher I use it often! I had never done yoga before your DVD but now I use it as a daily tool to keep my life in balance and hopefully someday will be able to come off of medication and have a normal, healthy life. Thank you for speaking up and out and making women health a common conversation! Your work has helped me so much!Caroline Crump
Good morning, Brenda, I just wanted to thank you so very much for completely changing my life! After years of trying to conceive and after being on fertility medicines and undergoing procedures, for the past year (clomid, injectibles, IUI, etc.), with no success, I decided that I had done enough damage to my body and my spirit and decided to purchase your Fertility Balls, along with your Yoga®4Fertility DVD. I had never done yoga before but after a month of following you on my TV screen daily (aside from Desperate House Wives…my guilty pleasure), I felt like a new person, with a brand new respect for my body and a totally different outlook on our fertility as a couple. I continued to use your Fertility Balls regularly and I am now starting a Yoga Teacher Training course (200 Hour) with my local studio…oh, and did I forget to mention that I am now SIX WEEKS PREGNANT!!! So, thank you, thank you, thank you for your wonderful products, as well as being the first person to guide me into the life-changing world of Yoga. You have been such a huge influence in successfully getting us pregnant…I only hope that I can help other women the way that you have helped me! Happy New Year and may it be filled with many, many blessings, ErinErin
Dear Brenda and everyone at Strong Yoga®4Fertility, My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 14 months. After four rounds of Clomid, and the suggestion from my gynecologist that a referral to a specialist would probably be necessary, we both had begun to feel the effects of our stress, fear and disappointment. I knew something had to change. While I still wanted to do everything I could to have a child, those negative feelings could not continue to play such a predominant role in how I felt about “my journey” toward having a child. I stumbled on to your website, and was immediately touched and moved nearly to tears (in a good way!) when reading your blogs. They just seemed to speak to me. Here was the quiet faith, the stress-free celebration of love and life, the reminder to breathe, that I sought. It was as though everything I wanted to think and believe was right there in those blogs. Your mother’s story about the yo-yo; the notion of embracing the journey you ARE ON, rather than lamenting the one you think you should be on…this outlook both soothed and inspired me. I had recently begun incorporating yoga into my exercise routine, and decided to purchase your DVD, as well as your Fertility Acupressure Balls. I always feel wonderful after the DVD – the workout is easy to follow and understand. I noticed an improvement in my flexibility very quickly, and the sense of relaxation is invaluable, and stays with me long after I leave my mat. The Acupressure exercises are so different and intriguing. I try to “breathe into” them and pay attention to anything I feel. I found your website a little over a month ago. I think my husband and I must have found a perfect crossroads of attitude, mind, spirit and body. I am still halfway in shock, so it is a strange and wonderful thrill to type these words: I am pregnant. Brenda, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experiences!!! And good luck to anyone reading this. Brenda’s yoga is well worth it – pregnancy or no. Finding the calm, quiet faith and letting go of the frantic desperation that can come in the world of “TTC” was a blessing I will always remember and carry with me. Many blessings and much love to you, Brenda, and everyone at Strong Yoga®4Fertility. Namaste, StaceyStacey

I received my DVD yesterday and love it! I wanted you to know I found out about your web site through Fertile Dreams (Orlando Fl). My husband and I applied the grant to help with the cost with IVF. We’ve been trying for over 2 yrs with 4 failed IUI and 1 failed IVF. We are keeping our fingers crossed for the grant!!
Have a great day and thanks for creating Yoga®4Fertility.
Thank you again!
I did a Strong Yoga class the weekend before my successful IVF transfer, so I credit it with helping. I recently purchased the first Yoga®4Fertility DVD and love it.
Thanks so much,
“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. 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.”
I came across your dvd in Conceive magazine, and I decided to give it a try. Once I received the dvd, I began utilizing it three to four times a week. It was a great way for me to relax and calm down after the stresses of the day. The moves were easy to follow and allowed me to really listen to my body and focus on what it needed. Now after making Yoga®4Fertility a part of my workout routine for about three months, my husband and I are pregnant without me ever taking Clomid! My doctor was initially confused and shocked how this happened since on paper, it wasn’t possible!!! I attribute your dvd to helping me allow my body to heal itself and regulate my hormones so I could ovulate naturally. Thank you so much for this great dvd! I’m proof that it can aid in the healing of the reproductive functions.

I became more centered calmer, and Pregnant!
Every Doctor I’ve consulted with recommended Yoga.
My mental state also improved: I have been feeling a lot calmer, confident (in myself and in life itself), joyful, more able to enjoy the moment and not worry for the future. Your yoga for fertility practice helped me turn naturally to a daily yoga practice, led me to discover vinyasa/flow yoga which I like more than “holding the postures” yoga and helped me transpose this practice into my daily life..I had been more of an amateur so far. Since I work with you I feel a lot more “yoga” in all aspects of my life and not only pregnancy…
For the rest of the journey I feel really confident that I’ll have no problem living it whatever happens, thanks to your help and a regular yoga practice. It has helped me focus again on my spiritual life, and it has always been from there that I wished to live conception and pregnancy.”
