Yoga for Fertility
with Laura Kupperman and Heather O’Brien
Yoga is increasingly recommended for people trying to conceive, both because it helps relieve stress that can accompany fertility challenges and because the many therapeutic benefits may enhance fertility. Boulder instructor Laura and Denver instructor Heather are both experienced in safely working with women during all phases of IVF an IUI.
Benefits of Yoga for Fertility
- Increased blood flow to reproductive organs
- Decreased tension in hips and pelvis
- Reduced stress - which in turn can help decrease cortisol levels
- Better endocrine function and hormonal balance
- Overall toning and muscle strengthening
- Reduce discomfort associated with IVF cycles
- Greater peace and ability to relax
Yoga is a great way to live more comfortably in your body when you are trying to get pregnant!
Well, we got the results back and it's a big YES! We are pregnant. I really feel like I have you to thank for this - you helped me relax SO much and I have truly loved the yoga I have done (and will continue to do) with you! All I have to say is I can't believe it ... I am really in shock right now. Big hug to you.
