Can yoga help fertility?


Scientifically, we can’t be certain that yoga improves fertility. However, we do know that it decreases feelings of stress and anxiety, aspects that negatively affect fertility.

The type of yoga outlined below can help relax the mind and thus help fertility.

Step 1: The first thing to learn for practising yoga is breathing.

Yoga teachers say that a person’s lifetime is measured with the number of breaths we take. The smaller the number of breaths, the longer our lives will be.

Breathing in yoga consists of inhaling through the nose to inflate the abdomen, and then the rib cage, and exhaling to empty first the chest and then the abdomen, while trying to bring the navel in towards the spine.

Breathing allows the mind to stay focused on the present, which is conducive to relaxation. Through deep and prolonged breathing we find the balance needed to perform other poses.


Step 2: Some poses improve balance and reduce feelings of stress.

Janu Sirsasana or head-to-knee pose: This pose helps to tone the uterus and ovaries, while it also helps promote hormonal balance.

Bridge pose with support: Lightly support your body on the floor with your stomach pointing upwards and flex the knees so that your feet are close to the buttocks. Make sure that your feet are firmly supported on the ground and raise your pelvis upwards.

Bound Angle Pose: It helps improve fertility, as it expands the pelvic area and hip joints, increases circulation to the pelvis, stimulates the functioning of the ovaries and balances hormones.

Sitting on a mat or blanket, with your legs stretched out in front of you, exhale and bend your knees while gently bringing your heels towards your body.
Bring your heels towards your body as much as you can, keeping the outer edges of your feet touching the ground while staying comfortable.

Legs-Up-the-Wall pose: Considered to be a relaxing pose, it is an excellent way to end a yoga session.

To do this simple pose, start by finding a solid wall.  Place a folded blanket or mat under your neck if you think it will make it easier to do the pose, and that you will feel more comfortable.

Lie on the floor, place your buttocks as close to the wall as possible.

While exhaling, slowly move your legs towards the wall so that your body forms a 90-degree angle.  Continue inhaling and exhaling.

Cat Pose: This pose helps to tone the female reproductive organs, according to the Kai Palermo Soho Yoga Institute.

Go on all fours with your hands and knees on the floor. Bring your back down and raise your head upwards.

Lower your head and arch your back upwards. Lift your head up again and lower your back downwards. Your arms should be in a straight and vertical position.
