“Elaine is a highly professional and passionate teacher. She combines her expertise in yoga, dance, qigong, and tai chi to create uniquely personalized healing experiences for her students. She has a deep understanding of anatomy and disease, and uses this to guide her students to create lasting transformations of health in mind, body and spirit. Elaine is one of the kindest and most compassionate teachers that I have ever worked with.”
“When Emily McCourtney arrived for her uterine evaluation at a fertility clinic in Southern California, she was nervous about how it might feel. The ultrasound test, which involved threading a catheter through her cervix and filling her uterus with saline, would help her doctor spot any abnormalities that might affect her chances of becoming pregnant. Half an hour before her appointment, McCourtney met with Elaine Wang, a wellness coach at the clinic, who explained what was going to happen on yoga mats in a back room. They practiced deep breathing exercises to help McCourtney decompress, then Wang followed her into the exam room so they could practice her breathing during the procedure.
“After that, walking away, I felt more relaxed than at any other time at this office,” said McCourtney, 35, who later conceived via in vitro fertilization and is expecting a baby in April.”
“Elaine taught me that despite the challenges of infertility, there is still so much in life I should be grateful for. She taught me about self love and self care and that my worth is not determined by my infertility problems. I thank you Elaine for lifting me up during the time of my last embryo transfer!
“I took a short break from treatments while meeting with both a counselor and Elaine Wang. I worked on reducing stress, eating habits and my general well being. My entire journey took nearly two years. I didn’t even realize that I had so much to work on to get to where I am today. After several unsuccessful IVF cycles and really working on myself, I had finally gotten much more grounded and centered. I can happily say that the last try was a miracle and success.”
“For many years now I have been struggling with my weight – for most of my life actually. It felt like it was impossible to lose the weight, but now that I have been on this fitness program I know that it is not impossible. Elaine is wonderful! She helps me stay positive and helps me stay on track by checking up on me throughout the week. She follows up to check my progress and to answer any questions I might have.
This program is amazing because it really is a life style change it’s not just a quick fix diet – it really does change your life. Since I have been on this program I feel so much better both physically and emotionally. Going through infertility can be emotionally draining and even more so when you are overweight, but being on the program really has helped me. I have one healthy boy and another child along the way. “
“Elaine’s classes are a wonderful integration of yoga, qigong, and dance principles. Each class had a clear theme and movement concept that was developed and interwoven seamlessly into the progression of class.
Her knowledge of anatomy and movement principles kept our bodies both safe and challenged at the same time. I always felt a deep shift in energy level, physical mobility, and mental clarity. “
“Elaine approaches everything that she does with creativity, conscientiousness, and care. She is deeply resourceful in her approach to teaching and continually integrates new information for the benefit of her clients. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectiously engaging.”
“Elaine Wang has been my professional colleague since 2014 in the capacity of director of the wellness program at West Coast Fertility Center in Orange County California. She played a leading role in the development of this niche program to help medical patients struggling to overcome metabolic and nutritional challenges related to infertility problems.
She has organized and implemented an educational workshop empowering patients to modify behavior, reduce stress and improve self-esteem. Elaine is artistic, creative and able to engage and motivate other co-workers and clients to reach their health maintenance goals. We are proud to have Elaine as a key member of our wellness program. “
“Being a preoperative and postoperative nurse, I’ve seen firsthand how Elaine has helped patients overcome anxiety, nerves and fears before going into the operating room. Even patients who don’t express any concerns have enjoyed Elaine’s presence, calm demeanor and guided visualizations. Some patients will even joke that they’re so calm and relaxed that they won’t need any anesthesia! Being able to relax before surgery also helps in recovery. The IVF process is emotionally, physically, mentally and financially exhausting. Having someone like Elaine helps ease the process, which is important because our mental state impacts us physically too. Elaine is a ray of sunshine at the office. We all agree that just her presence is calming. She has a special gift that can’t be taught in textbooks and that’s hard to find.”
“Elaine has a very calming and peaceful voice and personality. She does her magic with our patients before and during their stressful procedures. So I was delighted to hear that she was putting together a course that can be used anywhere you are with your smart phone. I listened and went through the beginning videos she had, and was amazed how calm and peaceful I felt afterwards. I have recommended her videos to various family members and friends, who were also pleased with their calming results.”
“As a medical assistant, I’ve witnessed the vulnerability and anxiety that many wives, husbands and families go through during IVF and have seen first hand how Fertility Fit Kit’s mind-body practices have given them comfort during this stressful time. Having gone through the IVF process herself, Elaine has an in-depth understanding of the challenges involved. I also use her stress management techniques to better assist our patients and have seen the tremendous difference it makes.”
“I cannot recommend Elaine enough! Going through fertility treatments is so physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially exhausting. I can say without a doubt, working with Elaine on the day of my transfer was worth every penny. Going through that process with her by my side, coaching my breathing, and encouraging me along the way was invaluable. Dr. Diaz and his team are great, but even with the best of science, so much of creating human life is out of our control. Having the mental and emotional support and tools from Elaine really made all the difference for me. I’m convinced our story would not be the same without her. I am forever thankful to her for helping our transfer day be a success which led to our now happy and silly toddler.”
