Pashimottanasana for fertility

This seated forward bend (pashimottansasana) is a great pose for fertility, particularly for those with PCOS as it helps to balance the hormones in the body. It works on 2 levels: On a physical level it stimulates the ovaries and uterus, and balances the hormones in the endocrine system responsible for fertility. On a psychological level it cools and calms helping to relieve fatigue, anxiety and stress. For those of us with tight hamstrings place a blanket under the knees and a bolster on top of the thighs (if you need further assistance coming forward add a block as well so that your head is fully supported in the pose and you can really relax into it).
