Best yoga poses that help deal with infertility

infertility issues

Infertility can be a traumatic experience for the affected people, given our society’s flawed notion about women being perceived as child bearers. In this regard, there are some Yoga poses that can improve your chances of conceiving. However, more importantly such exercises can provide you with a more stress relieving psychological outlook. This in turn would prepare you to have that mind-body connection ideally suited for child conception.

Seated Forward Bend

A pose for flexing you hips and recharging your body, the posture requires you to be in a seated position with your legs extended in the front.  Then you need to bend your upper torso from the waist (keeping your head position firm). Finally, you have to extend your hands forward as close as possible to your toe, while your head and shoulders are relaxed.

Reclining Hero Pose

Good for flexing both our hips and groin, the Reclining Hero is started off by kneeling, with your feet being kept apart. Then you need to rest your buttocks between them, while you try to move backwards to lie with your back to the floor. However, some of us may find it difficult to fully lie on our back. In such cases, we can use props like pillows or folded blankets for resting our upper back.

Lotus Pose

One of the traditional meditative poses in Yoga, this posture requires you to sit straight on a chair (or on the ground), while you point your palms upwards, with your thumbs touching your first fingers. If decorum allows it, you can also fold one of your legs and rest it upon the other, while on a chair. This position relaxes your spine, while preparing your body for even deeper meditative poses.

Bridge Pose

This inverse position flexes and massages your thyroid gland (thus stimulating hormone production). For the pose, you require to lie on your back with your knees bent and feet slightly apart. Then you need to reach your heels with your fingertips. Finally, when this is achieved, you have to raise your hips from the ground by pressing through your knees and heels. During this posture, you need to take your arms up and keep them grounded below the glutes. After this you need to roll your shoulder blades for around 45 seconds.

Child’s Pose

The name very well describes its directed patrons. Developed for children and adults, the restorative pose entails a full kneeling on the floor with your toes touching together. Your torso is to be then laid down upon the thigh support along the ground. The favorable effects can result in increased elasticity to our hips, ankles and thighs.
