Apana Vayu and fertility

We often talk about prana ‘life force energy’, but when we have fertility issues it’s important to move the ‘apana’ the downward flow of energy, which comes from the abdomen and is connected to the diaphragm and erector muscles along the spine. When the diaphragm is tight it’s hard to take a full breath from the belly which we need to do to turn on our rest and digest response. When the erector muscles are tight it limits the flexibility in the spine. The spine needs good nerve and blood supply so it can support the organs and also the uterus. Poses like mountain brook (see pic) are great to help to move the apana in the belly, opening up, releasing tension and allowing oxygenated blood to move around the repro organs.
