"Relax, and it will happen." This is the least helpful advice or advise you will ever hear if you're struggling with infertility. If only it were that simple, right? What about some specific relaxation tips? One of the methods is yoga. 

Yoga is a calming exercise. Infertility, yoga, and the advantages of the activity for easing physical and mental tension in relationships have all been studied. Yoga has some potential as a lifestyle adjustment that could support both men and women’s reproductive health.  

Let’s have a look at some fertility yoga poses that can accomplish for women who want to become pregnant. 

The best yoga poses for fertility 

Fertility yoga strengthens the body, eases stress, depression, and anxiety, balances hormones, supports sperm production, increases IVF success rates. 

Certain yoga poses, or asanas, can assist to improve blood flow while also relaxing the female reproductive organs. The yoga sequence in this article will help you access your most fertile energy. 

Ocean breath (Ujjayi Pranayama) 

Starting from this position can help you develop a strong practice of yoga poses for fertility. 

This breathing calms you down, aids in concentration, and warms the body, which enhances blood flow. Continue doing that throughout the session. 

Cat pose (Marjaryasana) and Cow pose (Bitilasana) 

This pose helps you relax while also warming your spine, hips, belly, and shoulders. When you are ovulating, during your menstruation, or if you are pregnant, you shouldn’t compress your pelvic floor. 

Downward-facing dog (Adho mukha svanasana) 

The sides are stretched while the front torso, arms, hands, and shoulders are strengthened in this position. Additionally, the parasympathetic relaxation response is elicited and the hormonal system is controlled with a small inversion. 

Crescent Moon (Anjaneyasana) 

This asana stretches the lower belly, quadriceps, and hip flexors, which improves blood flow to the reproductive organs.  

Child’s Pose (Balasana) 

This asana relaxes the posterior body and induces relaxation. 

Goddess Pose (Utkata Konasana)

Similar to Warrior II, this position releases tension in the hips and opens the heart center.


Don’t forget to complete your practice with the closing meditation. Savasana helps reduce anxiety and control stress, and also calms the body and mind and improves overall mental health. 

Remeber to breathe 

If you’re new to yoga or would like guidance on specific positioning, seek out a local instructor, consider searching YouTube for beginning yoga videos, or find a class online. 

Yoga is a powerfool tool not only for promoting your fertility, but it can also improve your physical and mental health overall. Remeber to breathe, not only during your yoga practice, but wherever you are. Keep in mind that your journey may be thorny, but it is not endless, and that one day your dream will come true.
