Yoga for uterine prolapse

The correction of uterine prolapse through yoga requires persistent and careful practise over several months, maybe even longer if structural damage is severe.

Vipareeta Karani asana – Half Shoulder Stand.

Allows the uterus to find its correct position in the pelvic cavity. Concentration of breath at navel. Practise for several minutes at a time (or as long as is comfortable)three times a day. If five minutes is too long, rest and resume pose.

Nankasana – The Boat pose.

An automatic inward contraction which lifts the uterus into its correct position and holds it therefor some time. The supporting ligaments gradually become stronger and stronger.

Moola Bandha – Perineum Contraction Lock.

In seated position. Palms on knees, relax whole body, inhale deeply.

Contract the muscles in the region of the perineum and draw them upwards.- this is the final pose. Hold this pose for as long as you can , retain the breath… Release the contraction of perineum, then slowly exhale. Repeat.
