Yoga for Fertility
by Stef Daniel
Trying to conceive can be a stressful experience for many people. This stress alone can hinder your fertility. Yoga can often be the perfect thing to help reduce stress as well as prepare your body for pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. There are also many courses available in yoga studios and on DVD that are designed for the divine purpose of increasing fertility.
When you participate in a yoga class or workout that is designed just for fertility, the movements, asanas (poses), and deep breathing will be specifically designed to boost the reproductive organs. Yoga naturally connects the mind, body, and spirit and helps to release anxiety that can be pent up unknowingly in the body. It also helps to restore proper hormone function which is vital to your fertility. Often, you don’t even know anything is wrong.
Yoga for fertility has recently been accepted by the Mayo Clinic because of the natural detoxification that takes place on a cellular level when doing yogic poses and breathing. This is important for unlocking the gynecological organs and helping to restore the blood flow to these organs which is essential for fertility. Most of the fertility yoga classes will center on the sacral organs – otherwise known as the ones located in the middle of the body, below the heart and above the hips. The poses and movements are all designed to strengthen core muscles, untangle nerves, release stress to these organs, and restore natural movement and flow.
Plus, yoga just feels good. Many women spend a lot of time researching the best ways to get pregnant and the things they can take to help improve fertility and make pregnancy easier. However, it is very important to remember that you are a natural being with many instinctive mannerisms and behaviors that can be fixed when the body and mind are in tune. This natural state is known as well being, and can be achieved with regular scheduled yoga classes. Not only will you be more fertile regularly – but you will also be stronger and healthier in the process. Not to mention the fact that yoga helps to lengthen the muscles of the body which can keep you in shape during pregnancy, make losing weight after pregnancy easier and helps with your labor and delivery. Yoga for fertility and beyond is widely accepted by doctors as both a safe and effective exercise to keep you at your best before, during, and after pregnancy.
