Yoga Postures For Infertility

Nov 29, 2007
Yoga promotes and improves fertility. There are a few specific yoga practices that can be used for it. They have been known for a long time and there is recollection about these special yoga practices in the ancient papers.

The practices include specific postures, mantras and breathing techniques. These exercises enhance fertility by stimulating hormone levels and improving blood and nutrients supply to reproductive organs like ovaries, eggs, tubes, uterus, testes and prostate.

In doing this they maximize the vitality of these organs. For older mums and dads yoga exercises can slow down the aging of organs and tissues like eggs and sperm which is detrimental for the ability to get pregnant.

Here are a few yoga postures you can in the comfort of your own house.
1. Supported Bridge Pose:
- Lie on the back and bent your knee with feet flat on the floor
- Move your feet to your bottom as much as possible,
- Inhale and exhale deeply 4 times, then slowly lift your pelvis and buttocks off the floor while keeping feet flat on the floor,
-Clasp your hands behind your back,
-Stay in this pose for a minute or two while breathing deeply.

2.Legs up on the wall pose:
-Lie on your side with your buttocks close to wall.
-Slowly inhale and exhale, then when you are exhaling turn your body but move your legs up to the wall at the same time so that you create a 90-degree angle at your pelvis between your legs and body,
-Stay in this pose for a few minutes inhaling and exhaling slowly.

3.Cobbler's pose:
-Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out,
-Inhale and exhale then while exhaling bring your feet close to your groin and push the sole of your feet against each other,
-Hold to your toes and when exhaling try to lower your knees to the ground as much as you can,
-Hold this pose for about 3-5 minutes while slowly inhaling and exhaling.

These postures, mantras and breathing techniques can be mastered by most women and no one can be harmed using it.

Yoga is a practical commonsense system that gives us tools to be healthy and fertile. It is like a health maintenance system. It minimizes the wear and tear of all body organs, including egg, uterus, and ovaries.

So, yoga used holistically can increase the fertile time in your life. And that is especially beneficial for older women and men who are trying to conceive at an older age.

These yoga techniques will also balance the production of hormones in the body and stimulate ripening and releasing the egg. It has been proven that women who have been doing yoga for at least 3-4 months ovulate more often and more regular compare to women who have never done yoga before.

If you are after 35 and have a dream to have a baby, start yoga first before you rush to have invasive treatments and tests regarding fertility.

According to the last research a general improvement in health before pregnancy helps nearly 50% of people to conceive despite many failures to get pregnant in the past.

That means that their infertility was only due to unbalanced organ function which could have been due to everyday stress, wrong diet or lack of physical activity. And yoga could be the right tool to balance all these and achieve desirable result, the baby.
