Yoga relieves stress, and stress can negatively impact your ability to get pregnant. Research has shown that women with more biomarkers for stress in their saliva had less of a chance of getting pregnant during ovulation than women with fewer biomarkers for stress, and that women with higher levels of cortisol in their bodies had an increased risk of miscarriage.
Other research has found that yoga seems to help women undergoing fertility treatments. A review of 87 studies on yoga found that a regular yoga practice may improve outcomes for women going through fertility treatments. That’s why some fertility clinics have now introduced “fertility yoga” to their programs.
What are the benefits of doing yoga when you’re trying to get pregnant?
Exercise in general is a boon for the entire body when you’re getting ready for baby, and yoga is a great low-impact way to tone and tighten. It’s also a lot easier to start a yoga practice and get into the habit when you’re not yet dealing with morning sickness and fatigue, which is important because exercise reduces your risk of gestational diabetes and other pregnancy complications. More importantly, yoga is a workout that’s designed to help you relax, which can make getting pregnant easier. All these benefits and the research done on yoga and fertility seem to point to the fact that while there’s no direct cause-and-effect link between doing yoga and getting pregnant, it may indirectly help you conceive.
Can yoga boost your fertility?
No, not directly. There’s no research showing a direct link between yoga and fertility. But some studies have found that yoga does have benefits for those who are trying to conceive.
