Yoga & TTC

Postby Sev906 » Thu Feb 12, 2015 12:31 pm

I recently started getting into yoga and absolutely love it. It makes me feel so much better physically and helps me de-stress, so it's definitely something I would like to continue while ttc and when I (hopefully) get pregnant. I know it can be super beneficial while pregnant, and some say even for fertility, but I'm curious, are there certain positions to avoid when ttc or during certain trimesters? I figure that positions where you're putting a lot of weight on the lower abdomen should probably be avoided while pregnant, but what about when ttc or during tww?

Yeah Sev906! You are absolutely right. The yoga workout is extremely beneficial for our health. It makes you physically fit and mentally relaxed. I highly recommend doing yoga every day. You will never feel stressed!

Hey Sev!

I have also been doing yoga, I started doing Fertility Yoga since Cycle #3. While it hasn't helped me conceive yet it does help me relax. I just googled what poses are good for conception. Also, someone recommended the site doyogawithme.com where they have all sorts of videos, including Prenatal Yoga.

I can't see that there is anything you need to worry about when ttc, possibly just when actually pregnant. If you wanted you could start doing Prenatal yoga now, and just maybe avoid certain positions as you said.

Here are the positions I do regularly:

This is probably a good question for the yoga instructor/studio. I know some places have yoga for pregnancy...and I would think any reputable studio or well trained instructor could advise.

My first thought would be to avoid hot yoga...but I am not an expert.

Good for you for getting into it - I LOVE yoga and have not been practicing for a while...I know I feel so much better when I do though.
