Studies show that a woman who participates in a mind-body program are 32% more likely to become pregnant than those who do not participate. (Alice Domar, Ph.D.)

- Discussions Neurobiology, Neuropsychology, and Cognitive Restructuring through Mindfulness
Cognitive restructuring interrupts the cycle of emotional thoughts that can negatively affect your physical, mental and emotional health.
Studies on Mindfulness and Fertility overwhelmingly show increased rates of pregnancy by as much as 40% when patients participate in a Mindful-based program.
When practiced over time, it creates permanent changes in the structure and function of the brain, changing your relationship with stress, increasing resilience, creating a positive outlook and increasing satisfaction and happiness in one’s life.
Did you know: The hypothalamus, which is a walnut-sized organ in the middle of the brain, regulates both cortisol (a chemical that is released when we are under stress) and our reproductive hormones?
Note: Mindfulness is dose-based, meaning the more you practice the more your brain structure and function change!

This program is closely modeled after the world-renowned MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) program which was founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
MBSR is the most studied program around the world in Mindfulness. Because of our passion, we have also studied intensely with Yoga Guru’s and Buddhist Monks, to incorporate the original essence of mindfulness at the seed level.
To make this program user-friendly, we include at-home practice recordings as well as educational mindfulness resource cards. We keep it all simple, straightforward and approachable.
