Quote B.K.S. Iynegar “Yoga is light, which once lit will never dim”
There are series of yoga poses that are used in Fertility Yoga to strengthen the abdominal region and protect the back creating abdominopelvic energy. Yoga poses prove to be beneficial to help with infertility, menstrual disorders and miscarriage (Iynegar 2005) they strengthen the pelvic muscles, improve blood circulation in the pelvic region, strengthen the reproductive area and exercise the spine – the channel for the chakras. Studies in 2001 by Woodyard stated that
“Yoga increases blood flow and levels of haemoglobin and red blood cells which allows for oxygen to reach the body cells, enhancing their function.”
And that Yoga can aid the healing process, by playing an active role in the journey towards “positive mind state healing” which is really important if you are on rollercoaster of a fertility journey.
Woodyard explains that
“Yoga is recognised as a form of mind-body medicine that integrates an individual’s physical, mental and spiritual components to improve aspects of health, particularly stress related illness”.
Yoga is conducive to aid relaxation, to focus on the breath – just be in the present moment to create a sense of well-being.
“The practice of yoga generates balance energy which is vital to the function of the immune system”.
