Yoga poses for Thyroid
Most of these yoga asanas are regarded throat-stimulating. They are proven to improve blood circulation and increase flow of energy around the thyroid, and strengthen and stretch the neck.
Legs-up-the-wall pose or Viparita Karani is a restorative inversion that doesn’t require putting pressure on the neck and is highly suitable for most of the people. It’s an outstanding option as it’s passive and helps in restoring the balance.
In this particular pose, the thyroid is believed to get the same stimulus as it gets in shoulder stand. After doing shoulder stand, plow pose should not be that difficult.
