Yoga for Fertility

Intermediate I

If you're looking to get pregnant, it can help to incorporate a practice that helps you welcome the baby into your body and into your life. Fiji filmed this shortly after finding out she was pregnant with her second baby and shifting her perspective, relaxing and opening up to the possibility of pregnancy is an important part of conceiving.

I stumbled across this video by accident, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Are there any other classes like it? I know there are many prenatal classes, but this one doesn’t come up when filtering for those, even though it seems relevant.

Wow beautiful practice. I am not trying to conceive a child, however I am in the process of creating a new business and this was perfect. I was looking for a soft gentle flow to help with stress, anxiety and grounding. Like any great yoga practice, this one had multi benefits for my body and mind. Feeling grounded, open and ready to create my day and my new business.

When I was trying to conceive my son, yoga was my go-to for both mind and body. During my fertile week, there was a major roadblock to my studio and I was unable to get there to practice. You can imagine my stress in that moment! It ended up being a blessing in disguise, as I then came across this practice. I am so glad that I did! It really helped me get my mind back to a peaceful place, while also giving me a nice workout. A couple weeks later, I learned I was pregnant! Of course I'm not saying this practice magically caused me to become pregnant, but I truly believe applying the meditations to my daily life helped my mind and body relax and eliminate the stressors that can get in the way of conception. Thank you, Fiji! Looking forward to practicing again.

I was delighted to read this comment! I am so happy for you and happy that you found your way to this practice at the time you needed it the most. Like you, I know that the practice itself is not the magic but simply the invitation to turn in and tune in. We have a far better chance at conceiving a child when we make space within us, often done by stepping out of our own way by clearing stress and worry. I hope you continue to keep that sense of inner ease through the pregnancy and hold beautiful space for the child that grown within you.

I'm on my second round of IVF, and return to this practice when I need to remember that there is always hope. Thanks again, Fiji, for helping me readjust my perspective in times of tension.

There are times when all we can "do" is lean into hope, doing so in a graceful way is really the intention of this practice. My heart is with you as you continue to lean with grace.

Calming, and thoroughly encouraging. I will be using this quite frequently in the days to come. Baby steps toward becoming. Namaste from Ireland.

Such a self loving practice, thank you. I have been told that I wont or hardly will be able to conceve, so I have convinced myself that I just can't have a baby. With that class I have understood that projections are just projections, they are not real, so I should project nurturing ideas instead of negative ones, healing and nurturing thoughts for myself from now on.

This practice has a healing effect on me. As I found out recently, that I am pregnant unexpectedly , I didn't have such a preparation. The decision to continue the pregnacy is not an easy one for me- regarding my head, but not my heart. The exercise of shifting perspectives is exactly what I need and it helps me to hanlde difficult moments. Thank you Fiji for this support You are my favourite yoga teacher.

Hi! I'm wondering if this yoga sequence is ok to do during the first trimester of pregnancy? I noticed your prenatal videos were just for 2nd and 3rd trimester so after using this flow successfully for fertility (!!!!!!) I'd like to keep going but want to make sure it's safe. Thank you so so much for all that you do!!!!

Really enjoy this both physically and mentally. However, I find that my lower back really aches during that part at the end with the bolster under my back. I have to remove it and even having my knees bent bothers my lower back too, so I've been elevating my legs onto a chair. Is this ok? For now until my back is more flexible - I'm hoping.

Yes it is a great option to put your legs up if your lower back is getting sore! Listening to your body and making the right modifications for you is the best way to ensure your practice is healing and not harming. It is my intention with this video that women are finding a way to once again connect with their body in a loving and accepting way, taking care of yourself and honoring your needs is beautiful and perfect.

I have always wanted to make yoga part of my life, I started waking up a bit earlier and doing this every morning and i love it. I find it so calming and at the same time invigorating, its an great way to start the day! I really love how Fiji instructs, for the first time I find I actually breath at the right times and can just relax into the routine, which really does make it feel like a meditation.
Thank you so much!

When this practice came out, I did it at least twice a week, but normally more often than that. It's very upsetting when people tell you that "all you have to do to get pregnant is relax", but I got hooked on Fiji's tone, reassuring and never condescending. It was a great comfort for a hard time. I'm happy to say that I got pregnant after about two months and I felt all the while that I was in good company. Thank you.

I remember hearing those words myself and wanting to have a practice that was more about being loving and not judging towards my body. Reconnecting in a loving way and lowering my stress around pregnancy ultimately helped me to get pregnant with my second.

This is a beautiful practice – calming, gentle and mindful, but still containing some standing poses, to remind us of our strength. Women who have anxiety as a result of their fertility challenges may wish to skip from 22.45 onwards, or press mute, as from here Fiji talks about the stress hormone cortisol and, for the sensitive, the fact that education is being coupled with remedy may be triggering. Hearing this certainly sent my cortisol levels right back up! (I guess as I already know about cortisol and am very sensitive to being ‘lectured’ – quickly feeling guilty or a failure.) For those undergoing IVF treatment due to some clear physical impediment (such as having no or damaged fallopian tubes) phrases such as ‘the seed can easily make its way’ may be upsetting, even as these may be intended symbolically. If you do mute or stop at the suggested point, the next two poses are just a lengthy reclined bound angle pose, followed by a seated prayer pose, so you can easily complete the session. All in all, a wonderful healing practice and very appreciated as there’s very little out there in the way of guided fertility yoga.

Thank you Fiji, this was beautiful and powerful for me. Brought tears to my eyes as I am struggling with my fertility. I will be coming back to this practice regularly.

Fiji's voice is very calm and I like how she sounds so confident. I've done this practice twice in a week and her voice has come back to my mind at stressful times. It's also short enough to do on top of any other practice.

This is just what I needed, as we have been struggling with fertility and I saw this today as though it was a sign that everything will be ok. Thank you so much!
