Let’s take a look at 5 Yoga Asanas, which can help us deal with our heart problems and then also make us ready for the coming Yoga Day on 21st June 2020.
To perform this, keep your knees hip-width apart and bend them. Now with hips at the back and chest forward, keep your arms straight in line with the ears. This pose is perfect for reducing blood pressure and stretches your entire body.
Adho Mukha Shvanasana:
Keeping your head down, the arms should be stretched straight forward, shoulder-width apart; the feet should be a foot apart, the legs straight, and the hips raised as high as possible. Besides stretching, this asana is great for stress to relieve and mild depression.
Lie prone on the floor and place your palms under the shoulder. Now push down until the hips lift slightly. The back should be arched until the arms are straight, and the gaze directed straight upwards. This pose strengthens your entire spine and rib cage area helping in proper blood circulation.
For this, stretch your legs straight and swing your upper body back and forth, trying to reach further with hands, touching your knees, and finally, the toes. This pose calms your brain and helps in relieving stress and depression. It also stimulates and improves your organ’s functionality.
Ardha Pincha Mayurasana:
For this, start in table pose and then lower down to both forearms, making sure the elbows are aligned with the shoulders and then begin to press into the forearms until you can lift the knees and then straighten the legs out as much as you can and shift your gaze to the back. This asana is recommended for all women as it helps to reduce osteoporosis and improves digestion.
It is also suggested that we end these postures with a few minutes of meditation and concentration. Practicing these asanas daily for a hefty time will help you see the desired results.
