4 Yoga Poses for Mental Health


| 10/25/2016 2:46:00 PM


Today, many of us view yoga as a fitness exercise, but it is actually a centuries-old life philosophy that aims to unify the mind, body and spirit. By combining breathwork, meditation and physical postures, yoga provides many benefits for overall health. Instructors have seen yoga help with anxiety, insomnia, and pain, as well as give practitioners more energy and lower stress levels.  Add these four yoga poses to your self-care routine to reap the mental and physical health rewards.

Reclined Bound Angle (Supta Baddha Konasa)

When life gets too hectic, remember to give yourself the time and space for relaxation. Reclined Bound Angle Pose is great for taking a moment to unplug from the constant state of connectedness we’re all in. In this pose, we can focus on our breath, clear our minds and become centered once again.

Camel Pose (Ustrasana)

Boost confidence and happiness when anxiety strikes with this pose. Any pose that creates a backbend position is invigorating, and Camel Pose can be modified in a number of ways to accommodate your flexibility and experience with yoga. Backbends also help reverse the effects of forward bending—whether from sitting hunched over a desk all day or poor posture—which occurs all too often in our modern world.
