The Dance of Fertility

The Dance of Fertility:
Reconnecting With Our Cycles

Like the earth itself, a woman's body passes through cycles of fertility and infertility. Sometimes our bodies are moist, cool and fertile and sometimes our bodies are dry, hot and infertile. Each month, our bodies give us signals to let us know where we are in the cycle. We can keep track of the signals and use the knowledge to prevent or achieve pregnancy or gauge overall health.

Join us for this 3-part class as we learn to listen to our bodies using the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM). We will explore what happens during a menstrual cycle, learn to chart our own cycle, and use those charts to achieve or prevent pregnancy and to gauge overall health. We will discuss herbs and other natural remedies to support our reproductive health.

Classes will be held Thursdays, October 7, 14 & 21, 6:30 -8:30pm at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA. Call 717-290-1517 or stop in to register in advance. Cost for the class is on a sliding scale: $80 to $60.

Natasha Herr is co-owner of Homegrown Edible Landscaping Co. She studies with certified fertility educator Katie Singer, author of Garden of Fertility and has used FAM successfully for the last 3 years to prevent pregnancy. She is in love with the magic of fertility and is passionate about teaching others to reconnect with their bodies.
Sarah Preston Campbell is a community herbalist, owner of Herbs From the Labyrinth, LLC and co-owner of Radiance in downtown Lancaster. She is passionate about women’s health, and sees myriad reflections between the health of our own bodies and the health of the Earth body.

Please note: FAM is not the Rhythm method. The rhythm method relies on estimating fertile time based on the assumption that most women ovulate around 14 days before their period. While this may be true for some women, stress, diet and other factors can delay ovulation in any given month, rendering the rhythm method inaccurate. In contrast, FAM relies on the daily observance of fertility signals in order to pinpoint exactly where a woman is in her cycle. There is no guesswork involved- only the facts!

The ancient yoga of awareness, Kundalini Yoga combines pranayam (breathwork), mantra (sound), asana (postures), relaxation, and meditation in each class. This yogic technology will create harmony throughout your entire being. Kundalini Yoga can be experienced by all ages and fitness levels.

Classes are held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, Lancaster (across from Central Market). Call Radiance, 290-1517, or stop by to register.
Bring to class: a natural fiber blanket or towel and/or a yoga mat; a pillow if it will help you sit with more comfort on the wooden floor. Dress loosely and in layers.

Padmani Kaur (Christine Cappabianca) practiced Hatha Yoga for 10 years & taught for 6 years. The philosophy of tension release, increased energy, & feeling happier motivated her to then study & teach Kundalini Yoga (3 years now). She believes in a gentle approach so that each student can experience the beauty & benefits in the science of Kundalini. Christine is an I.K.Y.T.A. certified teacher as well as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) with the Yoga Alliance.
