Hi friends! If you have been following along on my Instagram, you’ll know that Chris and I are TTC for baby #3! It’s a really exciting time for us, and I love being able to share my journey with the many other women and mothers that follow my blog and social media accounts. It hasn’t been the easiest year for us so far, but we have faith in God’s timing and plan. Staying positive is key to conception, and I have been trying my best to put on my ‘happy hat’ and smile through the negative pregnancy tests. It’ll happen when it happens, and I’ll do everything I can to help the process along :).

When my world has me feeling overwhelmed or anxious, I get out my yoga mat and re-center myself. A few months ago, I shared some of my favorite fertility yoga poses to help with conception, but I wanted to take the time to share some poses that keep me feeling those positive vibes I need to relax and let nature do its thing. Because we all know that if you aren’t relaxed, your body does this weird shut down thing and those eggies go unfertilized ;).

There’s more to trying to conceive than doing yoga poses, but these CAN help. Read on to see how these poses can help boost your fertility….

Tree Pose (Vriksasana)

I’m going to start this off with my favorite pose ever! Although I’m not that graceful and usually find myself stumbling while trying to hold this pose, the Tree pose (also known as Vriksasana) is great for relaxing your central nervous system.

While you are balancing your body, you are also balancing out your mind, which is great for your mental health!

When practicing this pose, reach your arms up to the sky, close your eyes, and just breathe in. Stretch your fingers as tall as you can, rest your foot flat against your inner thigh, and let your worries and your cares escape through each exhale.

Bow Pose/Wheel Pose (Dhanurasana)

Want to know a secret? I am one of millions of Americans that happen to suffer from anxiety and depression.

It’s something I am slowly becoming more open about with my readers. And if there’s something that I’ve to find helps me can also help my readership, I’m more than happy to share that with you.

Bow Pose/Wheel Pose is great for stimulating your pituitary and thyroid glands (which can help with anxiety and depression) and helps regulate hormone secretions in your body (aiding in fertility).

So if you are trying to conceive like I am, keep this pose in mind the next time you pull out your yoga mat!

Grab your ankles from the outsides, and breathe. Hold this pose for 20-30 seconds, and slowly release. Cobra pose or Child’s pose would make great follow-ups after you have finished with Bow pose.

Triangle Pose (Trikonasana)

I love using Triangle pose for the days when I am especially stressed. It’s great for releasing tough emotions because it targets the parts of your body that hold in the stress and negativity from work, school, mommin’, and trying to keep a clean house ;).

I find that this pose is still pretty simple to do, even though I’m not all that flexible.

For this pose, extend one of your legs out to your side, pointing the toes of that foot out. Slowly bend your body to that side, reaching your hand down to the side of the extended foot. Point your opposite arm towards the sky. Hold this pose for 30-60 seconds, and slowly release.

Crab Pose (Purvottanasana)

The Crab is another great post to do for your mental health and works by relieving stress and fatigue. It might not be the easiest for the beginner yogi to do, but I’m sure all of my fellow 90’s babies remembering walking around backward while doing ‘the crab’ in gym class on rainy days!

Oh, just me? Yikes…awkwaaaaaard…

With this pose, you can keep your torso and pelvis parallel to the floor, or more angled towards the sky like I am posed in the picture above.

Warrior II Pose (Virabhadrasana II)

“Who run the world? GIRLS!” – Beyonce

Okay, sorry! But that’s what I think of when I am in Warrior II pose – I feel ready to take on the world!

With this pose, you can find yourself letting go of things that are weighing on your mind and setting your sights on what’s most important. What are you fighting for/aiming for in life right now? 

This pose allows you to get rid of unnecessary tensions in your life and leaves you feeling fresh and ready to take on the world again.

And possibly spear someone with your fingertips.

It's been a while since I did yoga. I didn't even know that there are yoga poses that help with the fertility! It's good to try these poses every now and then especially since it helps maintain positivity as well.

Hi fellow yogi!

Yes, they truly are! These poses aren't necessarily for 'fertility', but they really help with centering yourself, maintaining those positive vibes needed for conception, and keeping your hormone secretions in check. And I think that's incredibly important while TTC, but you can always use these for your regular yoga session. Thanks so much for reading, Nancy :)
