Coping with infertility is no easy task and the immense disappointment when treatments are unsuccessful can leave you feeling that your efforts towards conceiving are exhaustive.  Studies have shown that low-impact yoga can significantly increase conception success rates in women undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment. When you are investing significant amounts of time, money and emotion into an IVF cycle, you want to do everything you can to make it successful.

In many cases, Yoga can be the natural technique to enhance fertility when combined with other treatments. It doesn’t directly improve sperm or egg quality but is important for a fertility-promoting lifestyle. In fact, there are certain postures that can help improve your fertility and the overall health and Science supports yoga's role in conception. A study found yoga improved success rates in couples using assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Yoga helps patients with infertility manage complex emotions during fertility treatments
