Restorative Yoga Can Aid in Conception

Restorative yoga fosters feelings of compassion, peace, and acceptance that can ease the pain you may experience during the challenges you encounter on your fertility journey. Even the American Society for Reproductive Medicine supports the use of yoga, and other alternative methods to reduce stress, in an effort to enhance fertility. With a little faith and conviction, you can utilize certain yoga poses to your benefit and improve your chances of conception.
We offer Yoga for Fertility and various yoga and meditation workshops at all of our CNY Healing Arts locations. Visit our calendar here.
