Posted on Nov 27, 2022

Our lives have gotten more complicated as a result of our overbooked schedules, mind-numbing job hours, excessive workload, and unquenchable desire for performance appraisals. The excessively high levels of stress make the lives of individuals on a path that is hazardous to their health. Back discomfort, tiredness, emotional breakdowns, and even heart attacks are among the most common symptoms.
 
The consequences of leading a lifestyle that is characterised by ongoing anxiety extend well beyond the bounds of one's occupation.
 
 
An increasing number of couples all over the world are seeking the assistance of specialists in order to boost their fertility. The consequences of extreme stress on fertility are not positive.
 
A woman's ability to conceive a child is hindered by the presence of negative emotions such as anxiety, grief, guilt, and stress. Even if you have been trying to conceive for a considerable amount of time, there is still a chance that these factors might be detrimental. It's possible that your capacity to have a family may suffer if you're always under stress from several causes. Therefore, what are some ways that this mental tension might be alleviated? Yoga is the solution to this problem. The practice of yoga cannot guarantee pregnancy, but it may help prepare the mind and body for conception and significantly improve the chances of having a healthy baby after becoming pregnant. There is some evidence that certain postures might help your body and mind become more receptive to the possibility of having a child in the future.
 
YOG: the Answer to Every Dream
 
To start your journey to motherhood, try any of these yoga postures to promote conception.
 
1. Nadi Shodhan pranayama (Alternate nostril breathing)
 
Alternating nostril breathing has been shown to be beneficial in lowering both mental and physical stress levels. This strategy for cleaning the nadis, which are the subtle energy pathways, also clears the way for an increase in the flow of prana. If you're having problems conceiving a child, practising this pranayama may help you relax. This, in turn, may improve your fertility and open your mind to new opportunities.
 
2. Pranayama in the tradition of the Bhramari (Bee breath)
 
You may find that you are able to rapidly let go of pent-up emotions such as wrath, stress, and concern when you use the Bee breath. Having a healthy pregnancy and a good delivery are both more likely outcomes for women who are more at ease with themselves.
 
3. Paschimottanasana (Seated forward bend)
 
An outstanding option for stretching your hip flexors, hamstrings, and lower back are the seated forward bend position. As a result of the increased blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, it may improve the chances of a successful pregnancy. Additionally, it has been shown that holding this posture might reduce the symptoms of anxiety and despair, which is a welcome advantage.
 
 
4. Badhakonasana (Butterfly pose)
 
The Butterfly stance requires a significant stretch for the inner thighs, as well as the groyne and the knees. After that, you should feel like you have greater mobility in your hips and groyne because of this reason. Regular practice right up to the moment of delivery will assist reduce any pain that may be involved with the labour and delivery process. This is in addition to improving the likelihood of a trouble-free delivery.
 
5. Viparita Karani (Legs up the wall pose)
 
This particular pose stretches the back of the neck as well as the front of the chest and the back of the legs. It is also highly effective for alleviating the pain that is caused by aching legs and feet. This position also reduces the risk of developing back pain and improves blood circulation in the pelvic region. Even if a woman already has a high fertility rate, adopting this posture after coitus might increase the probability that she will get pregnant.
 
6. Hasta Padasana (Standing forward bend)
 
This forward bend from a standing position stretches your entire back, improves your posture, and boosts blood flow to your brain and the pelvic area. In addition to this, it helps the spine become more flexible. Perform this exercise whenever you feel the tension in your stomach beginning to build as a result of stress.
 
7. Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep)
 
Yoga Nidra is a kind of meditation that has been said to have beneficial benefits on both the body and the mind. It is also often referred to as "yogic sleep." According to research, adopting this soothing position may improve your mood and drive you to look on the bright side of things. Even while this kind of relaxed, introspective sleep won't make it easier to conceive a child, it is a tremendous help to couples who are trying to have a family.
 
The trick is to maintain your composure and be patient. While some married couples may have to strive for a child for ten or fifteen years before they are eventually successful in conceiving a child, other couples may conceive without any difficulty at all. Maintain your composure at all times; rather than losing your cool, take the circumstances as they are and try again without complaining or giving up. The fertility of both the practitioner and their spouse may improve as a result of frequent yoga practice. In other words, everything will turn out OK so long as you have faith in God and allow him control of the situation.
