Yoga for Your Thyroid

It seems like not a week goes by without some new information regarding the health benefits that yoga brings to the table.  It appears that both the Shoulder Stand (Sarvangasana) and Fish Pose (Matsyasana) were the most helpful poses in influencing thyroid hormone output for the better among participants in a recent study.  According to the study, “Those doing the yoga poses showed a measurable increase in thyroid hormone output in as quickly as the first month.”

With both of these poses, there is significant pressure placed on small parts of your body as you move into place.  The Kneeqi yoga knee pad is not just for the knees, in fact it is an effective way to increase comfort during poses which cause you to put a lot of pressure on different parts of your body.  For example, during Sarvangasana, the shoulders of the yogi bear the weight of almost the entire body.  Placing a Kneeqi yoga knee pad under your shoulders can increase your comfort during your pose.  The benefits of yoga are still being discovered.  We at KneeQi will be here to help explore those benefits while saying there’s “no ow in om!”
