Evidence in recent years has shown that yoga can greatly increase a woman’s chance of getting pregnant. With specific postures that stimulate the energy flow within our bodies, we are able to significantly improve circulation to the reproductive organs and unblock and strengthen pathways which support the reproductive system.
Fertility Yoga focuses particularly on poses designed to open up and release tension in areas like the hips, pelvis, groin and lower back, all involved in conceptual health.
On a deeper level yoga enhances your sense of well-being and helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which tend to build up as a result of wanting to conceive. Stress and emotional strain can play a major role in many cases of infertility, especially where there is no known reason. Fertility Yoga aims to re-balance and restore energy flow, promote healthy hormonal functioning, increase circulation and release tension around and within the reproductive area and offers support on a mental and emotional level.
Fertility Yoga uses yoga asana (poses), pranayama (breathing), meditation, visualisation, mudra (hand positions to enhance energetic flow into specific areas), mantra and affirmations, chanting (sound) and chakra yoga to rebalance, align and stimulate and heal the reproductive system.
Please note that yoga in general and particularly fertility yoga is not a quick fix but needs to be practised consistently and with faith and determination to achieve a desired outcome. I therefore recommend booking a few sessions, once a week.
I also highly recommend my twice a month Yin Yoga sessions on a Saturday late morning, as they are a perfect way to deeply relax, de-stress and nourish body mind and soul.
Studies have shown that practising Fertility Yoga can greatly help with the side effects of medical fertility treatments and may increase their chances of succeeding. Beneficial points that aid conception and healthy pregnancy are:
- Reduction of stress hormones and anxiety in the quest to become pregnant
- Strengthened immune system promotes overall health and may prevent miscarriage
- Increases body’s ability to deal with the side effects of drugs used in ART procedures
- Increased blood flow to the uterus to promote implantation
- Improved ovarian function – better quality eggs and large number of follicles
