It is so nice to see articles about yoga and fertility, specifically yoga helping treat infertility, being posted by Western medical groups. Yoga really can help people struggling with infertility get pregnant. I have said a number of times, and I believe it is deeply true, infertility has a strong basis in anxiety and stress. We cannot conceive a new life if our organs and especially our gonads are bathed in stress hormones. It is just too hard to get pregnant when living a modern life that does not involved down time, Yin time. We need quiet and rest to overcome infertility because the womb needs to be a place of stillness and nourishment for the egg and eventually the fetus. So, if you are trying to get pregnant – even if you are not experiencing infertility – take some time to do a nice gentle yoga practice at least once each week. If you are in New York City, consider what I think is the best studio around, Dharma Yoga Center.
