Fertility yoga is a therapeutic type of yoga that helps you make the holistic connection between your body, mind, emotions and spirit.

While the poses in the Fertility Yoga with Monica Morell, PhD video will be familiar to those who have enjoyed the benefits of yoga as well as be easy to learn for beginners, what makes fertility yoga different from other yoga practices is that it specifically focuses on your reproductive health. The Fertility Yoga with Monica Morell, PhD video places emphasis on the benefits of integrating breath with movement and helps you gain balance, strength, and vitality to the reproductive and hormonal areas of your body.

Is there a difference between Fertility Yoga and Infertility Yoga?
We've heard the terms used interchangeably and know of no substantive differences between them. We prefer to use the term 'fertility' because its focus is more positive.

Who can benefit from Fertility Yoga?
Whether you would like to prepare yourself for pregnancy naturally or are experiencing fertility difficulties, and would like a holistic complement to your medical treatments, the Fertility Yoga with Monica Morell, PhD video will help you prepare for one of the most important times of your life.

And while the Fertility Yoga program has been specifically sequenced to help you with your journey toward motherhood, many people continue to use it to reap the myriad rewards that yoga brings, long after they've given birth.

I have never practiced yoga before, can I do the yoga practice found on the Fertility Yoga with Monica Morell, PhD video?
Absolutely. It is common misperception to think that you have to be super flexible or a ‘pretzel’ in order to do yoga. Every physical body is different and everyone moves in and out of poses differently. If you are new to yoga, there are modifications found throughout the Fertility Yoga with Monica Morell, PhD video which will appeal to all levels. Practice what makes you feel comfortable.

Can yoga help me when I am feeling overwhelmed with emotions?
Yes. It is perfectly normal to experience a range of feelings, especially during the challenging times of infertility. For some people, the program may even induce an emotional release. This is also perfectly normal. The physical and emotional levels of your being are intertwined and people often feel an emotional release during these physical movements. In that way, yoga offers a very healthy vehicle to help you positively channel unresolved feelings or stress.

Why aren’t women supposed to do inversions during menstruation?
There doesn’t seem to be agreement on whether to avoid inversions during your menstrual cycle, or not. One thought was that inversions increase the risk of endometriosis or vascular congestion in the uterus—causing excessive flow. However, these notions have since been disproved. There does not seem to be any research findings that support the argument for avoiding inversions during menstruation. A woman’s body is very dynamic and since menstruation affects each woman differently, a woman should decide for herself whether she would want to do inverted poses. As always – steady and comfortable is your best guide. Do what makes you feel comfortable. Listen to your body and pay attention to how you respond to these poses.

^

I am not sure if I am pregnant. Should I continue to do yoga?
As with any medical condition, seek your physician’s advice about what physical activity you should engage in during this time. If staying relaxed is your intent, you can always lie down in savasana (lie flat on your back, relax your hands next to your hips, relax your feet out, close your eyes) and practice your deep ocean yoga breathing.
