Therapeutic yoga can relieve the stress that comes with trying to get pregnant. Decreasing stress can lead to increased fertility and a more positive mindset.

Prenatal Therapeutic Yoga
During pregnancy, therapeutic yoga builds a connection between your mind-body awareness, your breath and your baby. It focuses on stretching, lengthening and strengthening. Stretching relaxes and releases tension and balances hormones. Lengthening makes room for the baby and increases digestive and respiratory organ function. Strengthening enables your body to support the weight of a growing baby; it decreases backache and aids in labor.
Postnatal Therapeutic Yoga
After pregnancy, therapeutic yoga helps you recover your body. It alleviates the back and shoulder pain common to new moms and strengthens the muscles you use to carry the baby. Therapeutic yoga also helps you safely regain muscle in your mid-section and lower back.
