Hatha yoga for women’s reproductive health

Chronology Behind Detoriating Reproduction Health:-

Compared to our antecedent in today’s generation, people give more priority to careers as compared to marriage and family settlement. So usually, the career comes before family planning. In this process of setting our careers, our age of reproduction slowly deteriorates. How? This may be your question right now, am I correct?

Females bear eggs which either flow out of the body in the form of a menstrual cycle (periods) or after a physical relationship forms a child. As we may have seen in the growing time period, the quality of things deteriorates, the same goes for eggs with growing age and time period their quality too decreases. To relate this we can have an example of our ancestors, they united in wedlock and started their families way sooner than us. Which resulted in a generation of people who were way more competitive than us in many ways such as intelligence, health, capacity, etc. 

How this can be precluded with Hatha Yoga

With the growing demands of today, it is mandatory for the younger generation to settle in their career first rather than to start a family. So now the question arises how can this both be maintained simultaneously? This goes with the saying “Where there is a will, there’s a way” which means if you have a strong desire and determination to do something, you can accomplish it irrespective of all the obstacles. 

Now allow me to introduce you to the most commonly heard term “Hatha Yoga” and how this can be useful to us in maintaining our reproductive health with our busy schedules.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is considered the best yoga for maintaining reproductive health or we can even refer to it as fertility, because its movements are not vigorous as compared to exercises we do during workouts and are more fluid in nature which improves blood circulation in reproductive organs. If you think that by walking or exercising your reproductive health can be maintained, then as a matter of fact I would conclude that it cannot. Wondering why? Let me put it this way, while exercising we do some meticulous activity, which can obviously make us sweat and reduce our body fat but due to exhaustion, we do not hold on to positions for longer. 

But in Yoga, the asanas or physical movements are slow and relaxed which stretches your body and allows you to hold on to that position for longer and concedes the blood flow in reproductive organs to detoxify the organisms and prevent its downfall or deterioration.
