This week we focus on the fertility yoga asanas to strengthen abdominal organs like the ovaries, prostate gland, bladder, and kidneys. Having a healthy reproductive system is an important step towards boosting your fertility.
The following two fertility yoga asanas not only build strength but also bring flexibility to the muscles. This flexibility is a signal to the brain that your body is in the right condition to conceive and survive a healthy pregnancy.
Fertility Yoga Asanas: Baddha Konasana
The Baddha Konasana pose is also known as the butterfly pose. It improves your flexibility while stretching the muscles of your inner thighs, genitals, hip area and knees. It is one of the more helpful fertility yoga exercises and it can also help in smoother and less painful delivery when the time arrives.
How to do it:
- Sit comfortably with your spine straight, and legs stretched in front of you.
- Bend your legs inside so that the soles of your feet are facing each other
- Hold your feet together and pull them as close to the pelvic area as possible
- While holding your feet, move your thighs up and down like the wings of a butterfly
- Practice this asana as many times as you can. 5-10 sets a day is ideal
Fertility Yoga Asanas: Supta Baddha Konasana
This yoga pose strengthens your inner thigh and groin muscles. It is also helpful in relieving menstrual cramps, bloating and stress.
How to do it:
- Lie straight on your back on the floor. Keep your neck on a pillow if you need to
- Keep your palms facing upwards firmly by your side
- Bend your knees upwards with your soles touching the floor
- Stretch your knees to the side so that your feet touch each other
- Hold the asana for 7-8 minutes.
Though these poses are easy to follow, we recommend you to take advise from a professional yoga expert. Find out Baby Indian approved partners near your area and start a healthy yogic lifestyle.
