5 Yoga Poses for Fertility
How do these yoga poses help with fertility?
Yoga can help make you more fertile in a variety of ways. First of all, it reduces your stress levels, which can help immensely: a more relaxed you makes for a much more fertile environment! Secondly, the following poses help to open your hips, groin and pelvis, improving the circulation to these areas and improving hormone production. Furthermore, increased blood supply here can help relax uterine tissues, making embryo implantation that much more more possible.
Do these poses in amongst others you already do, or on their own for a brief, relaxing start to your day. Remember to stay calm, and breathe fully while doing these and any yoga poses.
