Stress and health issues associated with it are becoming more common as professional success is a priority for many people today.

Although the effects of late nights, short schedules, rushed lifestyles, and packed calendars may not be immediately visible, they can affect your mental as well as physical well-being.

These are the seven best yoga poses that will help you boost your fertility.

Bee Breath (Bhramari Pranayama).

Bhramari Pranayama (or Bee Breath) is an excellent asana for relieving stress. According to a report published by Fertility & Sterility, psychological stress can be a major factor in infertility.

This Pranayama helps to calm the body, relieving it of anxiety and stress. You can dramatically increase your chances of conceiving by maintaining a calm mind and body.


Place your index finger on the cartilage in your ears. Exhale and inhale deeply. Gently press the cartilage. While making a humming noise, continue to push the cartilage as you exhale and inhale.

Make this breathing pattern 6-7 times.

Seated forward fold (Paschimottanasana).

Paschimottanasana (also known as Seated Forward Fend) helps to exercise the hips, hamstrings, and lower back. This asana can even help vitalize the ovaries, uterus, and other key organs that are responsible for conception. This asana is also good for your mental state.


Sit up straight, with your legs extended and your toes pointed towards you. Inhale, and raise both arms above your head. Exhale, bend forward, and touch your toes with your arms while maintaining your spine upright.

Exhale slowly and continue to bend your knees towards the floor with each exhale. After one or two minutes, inhale deeply before returning to your sitting position.

Exhale and lower both arms.

The Reclining Bound Angle, or Sutta Baddha Konasana

This asana works your inner thigh muscles and your groin. This asana relieves stress and the discomfort associated with IVF symptoms, menstrual cramps, and a medication-induced fertility cycle.


With your hands, exhale and lower yourself towards the ground. If necessary, lie on your back and place a pillow under your neck. Place the soles of your feet on the floor and bend your knees. Slowly let your knees open out to the side so that your soles are touching each other. Your palms should be facing upward. Place your hands next to you.

Continue to exhale and inhale while in this pose. With your hands, press your legs together. As you gently raise yourself from this position, turn to one side.

Shoulder Stand (Sarvangasana).

This asana helps to stimulate the thyroid gland. A dysfunctional thyroid gland can cause infertility. It can also help calm your mind and reduce stress.


Lay on your back with your legs extended and your arms at your sides with palms up. Raise your legs to a 90-degree angled position. Lift your hips and legs, bringing them forward while keeping your legs vertical.

Hold your waist with your hands and lift your legs at a 90-degree angle. Hold this position for an hour and a half. Slowly lower your back and legs, and place your hands as you rest your body parallel to the ground.

Standing Yoga Poses to Improve Your Balance

Legs up the Wall (Viparita Karani)

After intercourse, the Legs up the Wall pose or Viparitakarani asana increases the chance of conception. This asana helps keep the sperm in your body near the uterus. It will open and increase the chances that the sperm can reach the egg.


Raise your legs straight against the wall while lying on your back. Hold this position for between 15 and 20 minutes.

Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)

Cobra Pose, or Bhujangasana, is one of the best asanas for improving fertility. It increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. It helps to create hormonal balance and produces cervical mucus, which makes it easier for the sperm to reach the egg.


Inhale and exhale slowly as you lift the top of your body, arching your back while pushing your feet, hands, and hips downward. As you inhale and then exhale slowly, lift your upper body, bend your back, push your hands, feet, and hips down, and raise the top part of your body.

Hold this position and focus on your breathing for a half-minute. Release your body, and then lie on the floor.

Supported Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana)

This asana opens and expands your pelvic area. This asana stimulates the thyroid gland by increasing blood flow and improving its function. This asana treats anxiety, stress, and depression.


Lay on your back with your legs bent and your feet slightly apart, flat on the ground. Your palms should be facing upward. Press your lower back down to the floor as you exhale. Curl your tailbone, lift your spine and buttocks off the floor, and form an arch.

As you exhale, hold the pose for 1 to 2 minutes. Bring your body back down to the ground by releasing it gradually.

These asanas can improve your body and mind state while increasing your chances of conception. It is best to seek out a certified yoga practitioner for guidance and training on these asanas rather than trying them yourself. This will reduce the chance of injury. Good luck!
