During fertility treatment, yoga is a magnificent and holistic way to prepare one’s body for pregnancy and birth. The best part? As a pregnancy enhancement tool, yoga is proven to reduce stress, balance hormones, and revamp one’s whole wellness in body, mind, and spirit.

Soft, Supporting, and Nurturing Yoga

Even if you’ve already started an IVF cycle, you can receive support and nurturing from yoga. There are a myriad of benefits from yoga. It can’t be emphasized enough: Always begin with a moderate yoga regimen – not high intensity exercise – and always get pre-approval from your fertility specialist. Look: Too much high intensity yoga or other exercise has been shown to hinder successful pregnancy outcomes.

You will discover a love for restorative or Yin style yoga practices that will nourish your mind and body while alleviating the stress associated with IVF treatment.

Warning: Avoid practicing high intensity yoga, such as:

  • Ashtanga
  • Power
  • Vinyasa
  • Hot Yoga

Yoga is easily adaptable to your lifestyle choices. If you have been practicing high intensity yoga methods – pump your brakes and adapt to a more moderate routine.

Remember: Your body will be working hard to produce healthy eggs and make a baby.

  • Soft Yoga Routine
  • Medium to Low Intensity
