Yoga asanas to improve fertility
Essential yoga asanas to help improve fertility. By Bipin Gyan
Yoga for fertility is drawn from the ancient practice of yoga asana (postures) and is a series of positions that may be beneficial in the treatment of infertility. Yoga, as you may be aware, is a 5,000-year-old Indian practice that has the potential to bring about revolutionary transformations in your mind, body, and spirit. Each asana is intended to aid in the healing of the entire body.
It is not a specific form of yoga that treats infertility, but rather a collection of certain yoga poses that reduce stress levels and cleanse the body of toxins that are associated with infertility. These positions should be practiced on a regular basis in order for your body to become accustomed to them.
Known as the Surya Namaskar, it is a series of stances that are designed to increase blood circulation. The practice of Surya Namaskar on a regular basis helps women regulate irregular menstrual cycles and is beneficial during childbirth. Furthermore, it contributes to the appearance of a healthy glow on the face and the prevention of wrinkles. In addition to this, it has been shown to improve the body's sexual functions.
