  • The thyroid is a butterfly shaped endocrine gland situated in front of our throat. Endocrine
    glands secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream.
  • Thyroid releases many hormones, mainly Thyroxine (T4) and Triiodothyronine (T3).
  • Thyroid hormones regulate various functions in the body, including metabolism, growth and
    development and body temperature.
  • Under-production & Over-production of thyroid hormones result in Hypothyroidism and
    Hyperthyroidism respectively.
  • Symptoms of hypothyroidism are sluggish metabolism causing fatigue, lethargy, weight gain, depression, cold extremities due to increased sensitivity to cold, weak menstrual flow and even infertility. Left untreated, it can elevate cholesterol levels, blood pressure fluctuations and cardiovascular complications.
  • Hyperthyroidism symptoms include extreme weight loss, bulging eyes, rapid heartbeat, nervousness and anxiety, menstrual disturbances, sweating and increased sensitivity to heat.

How Yoga can help

  • Yoga can help in managing thyroid imbalances as it balances the endocrine system.
  • Through the soothing effects of asana, pranayama and meditative practices, the nervous
    system is calmed and the stress caused by thyroid imbalance is relieved.
  • Yoga along with nutritional and lifestyle changes can help in holistically managing thyroid
    conditions and assisting in bringing the system back in control.
  • Asanas that stimulate the throat region & Visuddhi chakra are highly beneficial.
  • Shoulder stand (Sarvangasana), Plough pose (Halasana), Bridge pose (Khandarasana) and even Viparita Karani are all highly beneficial as they increase blood circulation to the thyroid region.

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
