8 Simple Effective Yoga Poses To Fight Stress And Anxiety

Yoga Poses For Stress

Child Pose (Balasana): The child pose or balasana is undoubtedly the most relaxing yoga pose that helps in calming the mind and rejuvenating the body with energy. It is also an effective yoga pose for relieving lower back pain, hip strain and shoulder and neck stiffness. It has a healing and restorative power that helps in providing mental and emotional relief. Sit on the yoga mat kneeling while bringing your knees together and resting your buttocks on your feet.

Ustrasana: Ustrasana gives your body a good stretch. It not only releases the pent-up stress but also ensures enhanced blood circulation throughout your body. Proper blood circulation means more oxygen, which helps to heal the mind and body thoroughly. This asana is an excellent means to combat anxiety.

Setu Bandhasana: Just like the Ustrasana, this asana too enables better blood circulation throughout the body. The back gets a good stretch. This helps calm the mind and reduce the stress. This asana combats insomnia as well. Therefore, it is a good asana to practice when you have anxiety issues.

Baddha Konasana: This asana is so easy that just about anybody can do it. It basically stretches your inner thighs and groin area, but the straight back and the stretch in the legs make you feel better. Your anxiety and stress automatically reduce as your mind calms down. This asana also helps cure anxiety.

Extended Triangle Pose (Utthita Trikonasana): The extended triangle pose is the ideal yoga pose for stress management that helps in full-body stretching. It helps in increasing flexibility, improving digestion and relieves the problems of anxiety, depression and fatigue. It addition, it also increases bone density and reduces the risk of developing osteoporosis. It also helps in toning the oblique muscles and is effective to reduce fat.
