So let’s understand how your thyroid gland function and what is the suggested Yoga which helps it to work properly.
What is Thyroid Gland?
The thyroid gland is situated in your neck which is the part of the endocrine gland. The main purpose of this gland is to produce two hormones which secreted with the blood(Thyroxine T4 & Triiodothyronine T3). To work normally all the cells in your body compulsory needs both the hormones.

This glad is situated in the front part of your neck in a position just under your Adam’s apple. It is made up of two lobes- one is right lobe and other is left lobe, the size of each lobe is about half part of a plum. Thyroid tissue known as Isthmus joins both lobes by a small bridge. Both lobes lie on either side of your windpipe.
Suggested Yoga Asanas For Thyroid Gland
1. Sarvang Asana(Shoulder Stand)
Sarvang Asana(Shoulder Stand) is known as the mother of all yoga asanas. This is the best-inverted posture which brings the blood from the legs towards the head. As there is no organ in the legs but because of the gravity blood flow is always more towards the legs. Our head needs more blood it does not get the required blood because of the same gravity. When we practice the Sarvang Asana by locking the chin with chest we can hold the blood at the neck reason which helps to stimulate the thyroid and parathyroid glands. If you have the cervical problem or neck injury don’t practice it or consult with your yoga trainer.
Process To Do The Sarvang Asana
After doing 3 to 4 sets of Surya Namaskar Sets(As per Video Footer) lie down on your yoga mat. Bring your feet together. Place your arms around the body palms facing down. Take two or three deep breaths. Now, as you inhale lift your both legs up, hips up, buttocks up, trunk up and hold with palms on the upper back(which is downside now). Before doing any adjustment take two or three deep breath thus your body and mind understand that you are into invert position. Now if you want to adjust the posture than bend your knees towards the forehead. Now shift your elbows near to each other or parallel to shoulders. Once you feel comfortable again lift your legs up. Lock your chin with the chest. Hold this posture as per your body allow. Don’t force your body to do the same in the beginning. Later you may increase the timing from 3 to 5 minutes. When you want to release the posture bend your knees towards the forehead. Place your palms one by one on the ground. Now place your spine vertebrae by
vertebrae. Slowly place your back, trunk and legs on the ground without lifting your head. This is the best yoga posture for the thyroid but it must be followed by the counter posture Matsya Asana(Fish Pose).
2.Matsya Asana(Fish Pose)
Matsya Asana(Fish Pose) is not only the counter posture of Sarvang Asana but this asana also helps to stimulate the thyroid and parathyroid glands. Make sure when you practice this asana your focus must be on the neck reason. It is advised to practice this asana just after the sarvang asana. You should spend half of the time of sarvang asana in this posture as if you practised the sarvang asana for 2 minutes you should practice this asana for 1 minute.
Process to do Matsya Asana(Fish Pose)
Once you finish with the Sargang Asana relax for few breaths on the mat before we start the counterpoise. Now place your hands under your body. Hide your elbows completely under your body. Palms under your buttocks. Now push your elbows down and lift your head and chest up. Now try to bring your elbows nearer to each other. Shift your body weight on your elbows and keep lifting your chest up. Now hand your head let the crown of the head go down. Keep breathing and let the head relax on the floor. Make sure body weight if completely on the elbows, not on the head. Inhale and expand your diaphragm, Exhale contract your abdomen. To release, the posture lift your head up. Slowly release the hands and put your back down on the mat. Relax your thyroid gland but focusing on the neck reason.

Setu Bandh Asana is also very good asana for the thyroid and parathyroid glands. If you have Sevier back pain then avoid doing this asana. This asana is also very good for the back.

Pawanmukt asana is the counter pose for the Ardh Chakra Asana & Chakra Asana. This not only helps the spine to relax but also help to stimulate the thyroid and parathyroid glands.

Doesn’t matter which part of the world you belong, Doesn’t matter what kind of body type you and your parents have. Everybody is this planet wants to increase his/her height. Did you know as per one of the surveys 67% peoples in the world feel that they have short height? Especially females! There are many farmaceutical companies and doctors who claim that they can help you to increase your height. I am not against their methods but there are many side-effects by increasing the height with drugs or unnaturally. Most of the people always want to increase their height naturally. In other words, we can say that people want to increase their height by exercises or by doing Yoga practice. If you are also struggling with you height due to genetic reasons or continental issues so now no need to worry. Here I will help you to get rid of short height issues. I will also help you to increase the height naturally by yoga and by some other natural ways.
What is the main factor of Short/Tall Height?
First, we have to understand what decides the short or tall height in humans and also in animals as well. There is a growth hormone which is also known as somatotropin which plays a great role to increase or decrease the height in humans and animals. This human growth hormone is produced by the body for a limited age. If we leave a few cases we can say that the maximum age of the production fo human growth hormone in humans is 18 to 21. After that body stops the increase the height. Apart from genetic reasons, there are many factors which play a great role of short or tall height i.e. what do you eat? your physical activities etc. We will discuss it in the below paragraphs.
What to eat to grow taller?
It’s a very important question that what should be eating to grow taller. Every person has different kind of choices to eat as per his geographical living location, religious eating habits, tongue taste or maybe some other factors. I respect every person so I am not against or in favour of any eating lifestyle if someone has as per his choices but here I will tell you only about vegetarian diet which will help to increase a good height. Because firstly it is natural secondly it’s advised as per Yogic diet. If you really want your children to be taller and smart then try to add these vegetarian eating products in the daily food of your children. These will not only help to increase the height of your children but will also help them to be away from the junk food & unhealthy eating lifestyle. Researches show that if you include spinach, carrots, milk, yoghurt, pumpkin seeds, banana and other green vegetables and fruits in the daily diet of your children they will become taller, healthy and smart.
How to increase height by Yoga?
I receive a large number of emails, messages and calls from people from different parts of the globe to suggest them Yoga to increase the height or how to increase the height by exercises. There are several stretching exercises & yoga postures which help people to increase the height if they start yoga at the right age. Childhood is the very perfect time to make them understand the importance of a good height. I will advise below asanas from Classical Yoga to the children or youth for a good height. Spine plays a great role to be taller. If the knots of the vertebrae of the spine are not open nicely person would have a short height. This is the reason spinal movements and some stretching Yoga asanas can help to have a handsome height. Many people ask questions that how to increase height after 21? How to increase height before 18? how to increase height after 20? How to increase height after 35? How to increase height in 1 week? etc. Everything is possible if you have the right guidance but it can’t be done in a week or a month. It will take some time. You can write to us to know more or to know the correct way to progress in Yoga postures of increasing the height. Below are few of the asanas from Classical Yoga to increase the height. The classical way of doing Surya Namaskar(Sun Salutation) is also the best way to increase the height. Below youtube link is the right way of doing Surya Namaskar.
Who is A Yoga Teacher in this era?
Yoga has become the most import way to be fit and peaceful in this age of the fast-moving world. Unemployment is increasing because the population is growing very fast. People are very busy in their professional life so they are not able to focus much on their health. So most of them are looking for A Yoga Teacher to do Yoga. Nowadays becoming A Yoga Teacher is very easy. There are thousands of schools around the globe who are providing the one-month yoga teacher training program and giving the certified yoga teacher training certificate of 200 hours or 300 hours. A large number of teachers belong to these schools only. We can say that becoming A Yoga Teacher is the easiest way in current time. Do you think that one can become a teacher of Yoga in 200 or 300 hours?
Who Certify These Yoga Teachers?
There are few yoga alliances and many boards who claim that we are the best alliances to judge a school or a teacher. These alliances certify the schools by sitting in other countries by charging some amount per year to continue the membership of the school thus these schools can produce yoga teachers with one month course. Moreover, the teachers who are teaching these students during this one month most of them also have done a similar yoga course either from the same school or from the other. After doing this one month course a yoga teacher is ready to give the knowledge of yoga anywhere in the world because now he is an authorised yoga teacher from one of the certified yoga school which school is authorised by some alliance or board.
Are these Yoga Teachers reliable to learn yoga?
Although I am no-one to answer this question whether these are reliable teachers or not. Moreover, I have no right to put my finger on the credibility of the yoga schools for issuing the certificates of Yoga teacher but as per my experience of my Yoga life since 1998 I just understood that no-one can become a teacher of Yoga in his/her life. One can only remain a student of yoga till the death. Yoga is a very vast subject and even one life is not enough to become a yoga teacher. I personally believe that if you have the good Karmas from your past life then only you can associate with Yoga in your current life. Even to become a doctor it takes more than five years to get a degree and he or she has to pass the several exams to get the degree. But these schools give the certificate of a yoga teacher to everyone who enrols in the exams. Many of the people who attend these programs are failures from the other fields or join these courses to get rid of the bad habits like smoking or alcohol addiction. After spending one month living in such schools these teachers are ready to teach yoga and change the lives of others. Trust me most of the teachers around the globe are just from this category. They could be good in showing the Asanas but Asanas are just one small part of Yoga. In other words, we can say that Asanas are not yoga. These teachers are just forcing their students to do more and more asanas without understanding the condition of the body type. Many yoga teachers even don’t know the sequence of yoga poses and counterposes and because of that their students face the problems and start to hate Yoga for the rest of their life. Many people complained to me about these kinds of problems when they attend my workshops or classes.
What to do before hiring A Yoga Teacher?
You don’t need to do anything special before hiring a Yoga Teacher for you. Certificates authorized by any alliance or board is just a piece of paper if he/ she does not has the practical knowledge of proper yogic teaching. Before starting your classes with any teacher you must take the feedback from his/her previous students or teaching places. He/She must be properly certified from some good trusted Yoga School. He/She must be fit enough. His/Her knowledge on the Sanskrit mantras or prayers is also important because these are more important than just doing asanas.
