A study of 55 women who practiced “fertile yoga” found the women experienced decreased sadness, decreased stress, and increased hopefulness.
Fertile yoga is a specific type of yoga where women who are trying fertility treatments practice two techniques. Quoted from the article, the two specific techniques are:
- A one-minute mantra: “I am strong, healthy, resilient, hopeful, capable and fertile.”
- Seven movements of the spine like forwarding flexion, backbend extension, lateral left bend, and lateral right bend, left rotation twist, right rotation twist, and axial extension.
