Fertility Yoga: How To Do a Seated Twist Pose
Try this yoga position to relax, improve your circulation, and maybe even boost your chances for getting pregnant sooner.
- Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position.
- Place your left hand on your right knee. Inhale.
- Keeping your spine long and engaging your abdominal muscles, twist to your right, reaching your right fingertips to the floor behind you. Let your neck follow; do not strain. Continue to lengthen your spine as you inhale, and gently twist further to the right as you exhale. Hold the pose for 8 to 10 breaths.
- Release and twist gently in the opposite direction.
- Reverse the crossing of your legs and repeat on the opposite side.
