Strike a Pose: Yoga and Fertility

A 2000 study from researchers at Harvard University tracked 184 women who were trying to conceive. The results showed that 55 percent of the women who completed a mind/body program like yoga got pregnant within a year, compared with only 20 percent in a control group. Many yoga facilities now even offer classes on “fertility yoga,” combining traditional yoga postures with moves claimed to benefit both men’s and women’s reproductive health.
