Yoga for Fertility

Can yoga really help you get pregnant? If you’re a yogini trying to conceive, there is evidence that supports certain yoga poses may be able to help with just that. Not only is yoga good for stress (which hinders conception) but some professionals in the field report that there are specific poses that help stimulate blood flow to the pelvis, which in turn helps stimulate hormone producing glands. All good news for those trying to have a baby.  

When you’re ready to conceive, try the following six poses five days a week for maximum conception benefits: 

  • Staff Pose 

This seated pose helps to realign the pelvic floor and is often thrown off by walking around in heels day after day. When your pelvic floor is out of line it throws off your lymphatic system making it harder to get pregnant. 

  • Half Ankle to Knee 

Your uterus must be aligned correctly in order for conception to take place. This gentle hip opener will help with this and make it easier for you to conceive. 

  • Bridge Pose 

In order to get pregnant, you should really be in the best health possible. This pose stimulates your immune system and endocrine system while promoting the pertinent connections between your hips, pelvis, and lower back, all three of which play a role in conception.  

  • Seated Twist 

This gentle seated twisting pose will alleviate any tension you are storing in your organs and muscles. It is hard to conceive when there is tension in your body, with the seated twist excellent in gently wringing it right out of you.  

  • Goddess Pose 

This pose will help increase circulation, ease stress, and help you relax. These three are vital if you want to get pregnant. It also opens the hips and pelvis and is a great pose to do before winding down in Savasana 

  • Corpse Pose 

This relaxing pose will help to keep any stress and anxiety away, both which greatly decrease chances of conception. After the end of your sequence, wind down with this pose, chase away stress, and increase your chances of making that beautiful bundle of joy.
