5 Ancient Yoga Techniques That Multiply Your Sperm

India is the land of Kamasutra. India is the most populated country in the world. Well, that adds up. But in today’s world, with the lifestyle lead by our generation, it doesn’t come as a surprise that there is a surge in the number of men who are infertile.

This is a sensitive topic with men who do not understand why they are infertile. While you should get rid of the nasties like smoking or drinking excessively, there are also certain yoga poses for infertility treatment.

How Does Exercising Enhance Your Sperm Count?

Studies have shown that men who work out for at least 45 minutes 5 times a week have better sperm quality and count as compared to men who don’t. Working out releases the stress and anxiety and can enhance fertility. One of the major reasons obese men are more prone to infertility is because they have excess fat around their testes. This generates heat and destroys the sperms. 

Remember to work out in moderation. Pushing yourself too hard can lead to amenorrhea and cause infertility.

In fact, your best option is yoga for fertility. 

Try these 5 ancient yoga techniques to enhance your sperm count:

1. Halasana

Lie down on your back with your arms on the side. Your palms need to face downwards

Inhale deeply and raise your legs together till it is at a 90 degree angle from your waist. Your head and arms should be intact and only your legs should move

Using your hands as pivot, raise your waist off the floor and stretch your legs beyond your head and try to touch the floor with your toes. Your knees should be straight

Hold this position for as long as you can and breathe normally

Return to starting position, while keeping head and palms intact on the floor

2. Ashwani Mudra
