Fertility Yoga: How To Do a High Lunge With Side Stretch Pose
Try this yoga position to relax, improve your circulation, and maybe even boost your chances for getting pregnant sooner.
- Step into a lunge with your right foot in front, knee bent (as close to a 90-degree angle as possible) directly over your right ankle, hips square to the front. Position yourself about arm's length away from a wall just in case you need extra support for balance.
- Bend your back knee and curl your tailbone under. Keeping your pelvis tucked, straighten the back leg.
- Raise your left arm overhead, and bend to the right, using your right hand against your hip (or wall) for support as needed. Take 5 to 10 deep breaths.
- Repeat on the opposite side.
