Yoga Poses To Aid Conception

As you are trying to conceive, this period that is the period before you conceive is a good time to nurture yourself well and not to push too much. Nurturing should be nutritionally as well as physically to remain fit. Yes you can perform most of the yoga poses and continue with your yoga practice but remember strong and vigorous practice may hinder conception, so choose your entire session very wittily. Certain yoga poses which tends to harden the belly region should be most importantly avoided; these poses include boat pose or Navasana, leg lifts or Urdhva Prasarita Padasana and twists. Your focus while practicing yoga should be completely on relaxing your uterine and abdominal. Inversions and back bends can be safely performed but let them be more supported and in restful poses. Experts especially encourage inversions as they believe that they can calm your mind and more importantly balance your hormones.

Success in yoga basically comes from dedicated practice and letting go that is Abhyasa and Vairagya. Practice both for best results. Perform the following restorative poses mentioned below. Regularly hold each for about 7 to 10 minutes and breathe slowly, softly, and smoothly. This kind of practice will give your mind permission to relax the desire to conceive. The yoga poses encouraged in this phase of your life are -

  • The hero pose or Virasana should be done with some weight on your thighs
  • Reclining hero pose or Supta Virasana done with a support under your head and a bolster under your back
  • Headstand, supported or Sirshasana, ideally this pose should be done on a pelvic swing or in ropes
  • Inverted staff poses or Viparita Dandasana, perform this pose sitting on a chair with a support under your head. Your arms should be on blankets and your body should be completely relaxed
