CNY Healing Arts in Rochester, NY is a coveted resource for families looking to conceive and support a healthy pregnancy. CNY’s Wellness Center offers a variety of healing modalities such as Yoga, Massage and Acupuncture for these important and exciting stages of life. Many Yoga Classes at CNY are specific classes designed to support Fertility, Pregnancy and Postpartum changes in the body. In these classes we always practice specific poses (Asana) and breathing exercises (Pranayama), but lately we have been incorporating more and more yoga hand positions (Mudra’s) to aid in conserving and spreading energy throughout the body for the benefit of Fertility and Perinatal challenges. In this article I will discuss specific Mudra’s you can practice anytime, anywhere. I hope you enjoy (and practice) these Mudra’s and I also hope to see you in class!
What are Yoga Mudra’s?
Most Yoga Mudra’s are hand positions (some are body positions) or gestures that help to stimulate different energies in the body. Mudra’s are simple! They have been used for thousands of years to support the healing of many illnesses and bring harmony to the body, mind and soul.

“I had a Maya Massage with you. I had been told that my right fallopian tube was completely blocked after trying for several months to conceive my second child. After my 1st session with you in October, and after 7 months of trying to conceive, I was pregnant just 2 weeks after seeing you! You are the only treatment I sought in order to conceive and I truly believe that you were able to break up scar tissue that freed my right fallopian tube and allowed me to conceive. I'm so grateful, thank you!"
“Yoga for Fertility was a life changing experience for me! I met some of the greatest people! It was a time when I worked on my body and mind. After the yoga session, we would sit together and discuss our joys and concerns. For me, that was sacred time in that I really didn’t have anyone who was going through infertility to talk to. I came from one of those families that everyone just gets pregnant. Unfortunately, I did not. Yoga for Fertility helped me understand that I was okay and I could get through this! Yoga helps me every day, and I refer to it in my thoughts constantly.”
“Yoga for fertility at CNY Healing Arts is excellent. The instructors not only explain and help adjust poses, but they also provide information about the benefits of yoga for infertility, provide spiritual guidance, and make suggestions for diet and alternative medicine. Most importantly, we take time after class to meet for emotional support – this helps tremendously with the real work of infertility – heart work!
“Fertility yoga gives me a peace within. It has taught me to become more in touch with my spirituality which has helped me greatly.”
“Yoga for Fertility has given me strength and hope during times of despair and sadness. This class allows you to leave behind the day to day shame infertility brings, and opens you to wellness, happiness and spirituality.”
