Reclining twist over a bolster to release stress

Twists are wonderful for fertility. They allow us to squeeze the internal organs, releasing toxins and stress – but it’s the release where the magic happens. The fresh oxygenated blood flows into the repro organs, releasing tension and balancing hormones. I love doing them over a bolster, particularly if you’re in the stimulation phase of an IVF cycle. This is a gentle way to get all the benefits without putting pressure on the tum. When you’re in the pose you will feel the intercostal muscles (the little muscles between the ribs) stretch and gently open allowing us to get more oxygen in and breathe a little deeper.
