NEVADA(USA): Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut, affiliated with Yale University and Yale Medicine, is offering “Fertility Yoga” classes.

If you are trying to conceive, this class will help prepare the entire endocrine and reproductive systems to be working as effectively as possible; an announcement claims; and adds: The yoga and meditation are part of the fertility treatment. “Who Should Enroll”, the announcement asks, and then answers as; “Women trying to conceive”.

Meanwhile, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, welcomed the usage of yoga in fertility issues, calling it a step in the positive direction. Zed urged all major world hospitals and educational institutions to explore various benefits yoga offered.

Yoga, referred as “a living fossil”, was a mental and physical discipline, for everybody to share and benefit from, whose traces went back to around 2,000 BCE to Indus Valley civilization, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, noted.

Rajan Zed further said that yoga, although introduced and nourished by Hinduism, was a world heritage and liberation powerhouse to be utilized by all. According to Patanjali who codified it in Yoga Sutra, yoga was a methodical effort to attain perfection, through the control of the different elements of human nature, physical and psychical.

According to US National Institutes of Health, yoga may help one to feel more relaxed, be more flexible, improve posture, breathe deeply, and get rid of stress. According to a “2016 Yoga in America Study”, about 37 million Americans (which included many celebrities) now practice yoga; and yoga is strongly correlated with having a positive self image. Yoga was the repository of something basic in the human soul and psyche, Zed added.

Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, opened in 1903, is a member of Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS) and is a major academic affiliate of Yale School of Medicine. YNHHS, claimed to be the largest and most comprehensive healthcare system in Connecticut and headquartered in New Haven, is affiliated with Yale University and Yale Medicine. Marna P. Borgstrom and Norman G. Roth are CEOs of YNHHS and Greenwich Hospital respectively. Raema Salmon is the instructor.
