Evio Blog - Yoga POses For Health Problems

 

We already know that practicing yoga has so many great benefits. Beyond calming your body and mind, there is actually some specific yoga poses for your health problems. Although we would love to share with you all of them, we have curated a list of poses that anyone, even beginners, can try out.

 

Those Cramps Though

The Child Pose is definitely the go-to pose during a yoga class for when you need a rest. It helps ease your mood and mind as well as cramps. When in this pose, try to focus on deep breathing.

Child Pose: Sitting on your heels, lower your head on the mat. Put your arms alongside your legs or under your forehead. Relax ~ Yoga.com

 

When You Are Feeling Sad

Practicing yoga regularly will help ease sadness, depression, and anxiety. It helps us calm down and bring us back to our natural state. The Tree Pose is all about balancing just like in life. You want to make gentle movements and have consistency.

Tree Pose: Stand up straight. Put your left foot firmly on the floor. Bend your right knee and put your right foot on the inner side of your thigh, helping with your hand, closer to your groin. Achieve balance. Raise your hands, join them in Namaste and lower them to the chest level. Stretch your hands forward parallel to the floor. Look straight. ~ Yoga.com

 

Hella Hangover

Sitting Twisted Pose is a great way to release the toxins in your body. Plus it will help relieve your lower back muscles and spine from all the standing and dancing you do.

Sitting Twisted Pose: Sit straight, straighten your legs and back. Bend your left leg and put your left foot near your right knee. Bend your right arm and move your right elbow behind your left leg. Pushing against your leg, try to grab your right leg at the knee level with your right hand. Press your left hand against the floor behind your back. Twist your backbone to the left around its axis as you exhale. Rotate your head to the left. ~ Yoga.com

 

Stressed Out

When we are stressed and anxious, a lot of that energy gets stored in our hips. The Pigeon Pose is a deep stretch that helps release the deep tension built in your hips. If your hips don’t reach the ground in this pose, try sitting on a block or pillow.

Pigeon Pose: Take the downward-facing dog pose. Step forward with your left leg and lower your left thigh and shin on the mat. Keep your right leg straight. Go down on your left leg. Try to put your left thigh on the floor. Stretch your arms forward on the floor. ~ Yoga.com

    Hot yoga will change your life and your body, and most importantly, quiet your mind. If you ask me, it stops – even reverses in some cases the aging process. As we age we realize how important joints are. For me yoga is one of my foundation blocks for wellness and serenity. It leads to lower blood pressure., better fitness, improved breathing, flexibility, stamina, strength and sickness reduction. Try it for a week, and you won’t imagine life without it.
