Practicing yoga may support fertility. Yoga reduces stress, facilitates breath, releases muscle tension, improves blood flow, promotes proper alignment, and stimulates hormone-producing glands.
One of the best ways to boost fertility is to decrease stress. Stress negatively impacts our health in many body systems, and reproduction is no exception. When our bodies are in a stressed state, we become stuck in a sympathetic mode of our nervous system (fight or flight response). When the body is being signaled to fight or run from danger, it is more challenging to become pregnant. Simply taking intentional breaths and focusing on breath with movement as you do in yoga practice reduces stress levels.
