When people think of yoga, they think of the added benefits of agility and a method for losing weight and keeping trim. The fact of the matter is, yoga has many other benefits besides flexibility and toning, including improving fertility. Yoga is a great way to help you prepare for pregnancy and get pregnant.
There are countless methods of yoga and yoga poses that a person can perform. Each yoga pose helps to not only strengthen your body and mind, but can help you to regain balance in your body as well. Not only a physical balance and agility, but an overall balance between all of your body’s functions, including your reproductive system.
Fertility yoga poses can help to nurture, support and strengthen the endocrine and reproductive system. Your endocrine system is essential for proper hormonal balance, so using fertility yoga poses that promote healthy endocrine function is just as important as using poses that support the reproductive system as well.
There are a number of different benefits that your body can experience from performing fertility yoga. By performing these poses, you help to increase the energy flow through your body which improves the function of the endocrine and reproductive system. Fertility yoga, in fact all yoga, helps the body to maintain homeostasis, which is essential for the body to operate properly and at its finest.
Fertility yoga uses a specific series of stretches that have a positive effect on reproductive health. Every posture has a supporting and nurturing effect on the reproductive system or the endocrine system – the hormonal headquarters. Use a fertility yoga program in conjunction with a complete fertility program for the best results.
Fertility yoga provides many benefits to your health when you are preparing for conception. Some of these benefits are:
- Helps to “reset” your endocrine system; aiding hormonal balance.
- May help to clear adhesions and blockages in the reproductive areas.
- Increases circulation to the reproductive system.
- Supports a healthy immune system and supports the body in detoxifying.
- Brings peace and vitality to your conception journey.
- Creates an environment of clarity and reduces stress.
Given the benefits listed above that can be received when practicing fertility yoga, there are many fertility issues that yoga may help you better cope with.
If you are experiencing fertility imbalances, fertility yoga may help to re-balance your reproductive system and help improve your chances of conception. And not only that, fertility yoga also helps to prepare your body for pregnancy, so that your pregnancy goes smoothly. By performing fertility yoga, you are strengthening your reproductive organs and muscles that are used during pregnancy and childbirth, which makes it quite beneficial for those women looking to become pregnant.
While fertility yoga can help with fertility issues all by itself, it is best used in conjunction with other fertility treatment programs, such as fertility cleansing, fertility massage, medical fertility treatments, and a healthy fertility diet. All of these treatments will not only help with fertility, but your overall health as well. By using all of these treatment programs, you will have a new found energy that will improve every aspect of your life.
Our instructor, Jacqui Hayes, has herself preserved through years of infertility. PCOS and an inhospitable uterine environment stifled any hopes of a natural conception. She feels strongly that had this practice been more readily available during such a stressful time, it would have been such a huge source of support and healing. She has left her chosen field of work in accounting to pursue her passion of helping so many women through such a trying time in their lives.
