Yoga and Fertility

I have seen lots of couples distressed and miserable simply because they are childless. In the case of some of them, Yoga can assist in enhancing their fertility. Yoga provides an incredible approach to overcome stress and accomplish tranquility. In addition, it enables more blood circulation to the pelvis, stimulating the glands producing hormones, as well as easing tension in the muscle.
Now, let us discuss the act of breath control (known as Pranayama) and yoga locks (referred to as Bandha), which can aid fertility. Some of the control breaths techniques that can stimulate fertility are:
1. Kapal Bhati- Extremely good for correcting sexual disorder, and Thyroid (should be practiced for 30 minutes).
2. Anulom Vilom – Assists in providing general balance to the entire body system, Hormonal imbalances, and alleviating stress (30 minutes practice is recommended)
3. Bhastrika – It is suitable for rectifying any form of ovary disorder, and damage to the uterus or Fallopian tube.
These controls bring about great benefits when practiced before taking food early in the morning, ideally seated in a cross leg pose for 30 minutes on a daily basis.
As for Bandha, it represents a pose in which certain body parts or organs are contracted and brought under control. Among the Bandhas, we have;
1. Mula Bandha – Mula simply means the foundation, base, source, root or origin. It is located at the perineum (base of the spine). Bandha, on the other hand, is used in preventing energy from going downward by locking it. It ensures the foundation is sealed to aid the upward movement of the energy.
2. Uddiyana Bandha – The term Uddiyana implies the concept of flying up. This Bandha is used to maintain the upward movement of energy (known as Kundalini) via the Sushumna Nadi. Here, the abdomen is pulled in and raised up, to ensure the internal organs and the diaphragm are raised up towards the thorax region (chest). This subsequently strengthens and provides greater firmness to the abdominal muscles and enhance the functions of the digestive as well as the excretory organs.
3. Jalandhara Bandha – The words Jalandhara Bandha could be interpreted to mean a web, net, mesh, or a lattice. During the practice of Jalandhara Bandha, both the neck and throat are contracted, the neck lengthened, and the chin is dropped down towards the chest. This position contains Prana within the container (Prana body). If done in a wrong manner, it can result in pressures to the following organs such as; eyes, brain, ears, heart and even causes headaches.
4. Maha Bandha – Also known as the Great lock, this combines the practices of all the three Bandhas. This is only recommended for practice upon the mastery of all the other Bandhas. This Bandha is performed in the order of Jalandhara Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha and lastly the Mula Bandha. The breath is held up to a comfortable duration, and the Bandhas are released according to the sequence in order they were performed. The great Bandha confers significant benefit to the nervous system, internal organs as well as bringing a positive effect on the mind.
As you see yoga breath controls and locks can be beneficial for women’s fertility. If you are looking for alternative ways to boost your ability to conceive children, yoga may be a right choice.
