Combating stress is an all-too-familiar battle for most business professionals. Fortunately, a number of yoga poses exist for the explicit purpose of lowering stress levels throughout the body. One of the more popular poses in mainstream America, child’s pose, is regarded as a resting pose in the yoga world and has been specially designed to facilitate calmness of mind while lowering anxiety.
The bridge pose, meanwhile, can assist a person with a number of lingering issues, including back aches and fatigue, while also decreasing stress and related problems like insomnia. Some practitioners have even cited bridge pose as a move that can potentially help offset high blood pressure. Finally, the standing forward bend is mainly viewed as a transitional maneuver. However, as a stand-alone pose, the standing forward bend provides improved flexibility in the hamstrings and hips as well as stress relief and assistance against mild depression.
