As you all know, I have always been tad bit obsessed about the benefits of Yoga. I myself have had the benefits when in helped to fight Fibromyalgia and ENT issues. But Yoga cannot be explained in a single post and hence we will have more posts of Yoga.
Today we have the illustaration of three Yogasanas. Sarvangasana, Halasana and Matsyasana.
Sarvangasana: Sarvangasana is also called shouklder stand pose. The pose has the basic benefits that many other workoud regimes provide. It helps in reducing stress, muscle strengthening. It tightens the leg and buttock muscles there by toning them. It is also beneficial to your shoulder and neck. Apart from these the pose has several endocronological benefits. Thyroid gland and prostrate glands are regulated with this Yogasana. If you are an insomniac, doing this pose will help you get your peaceful sleep. The digestive disorders can be cured to a great extend with this pose. Lastly, and most importantly, it is extremely helpful during menopause.
Halasana: Halasana is also called the plough pose. It is the extension of Sarvangasana and hence benefits would also be the extension of Sarvangasana like the effect on shouders and neck, menopause, stress and insomnia. But the extensive benefits are incredible. It makes you alert because of its effect in your sympathetic nervous system. Sympathetic nervous system helps you deal with dangerous situations by fight or flight decisions. The same is attained by the effect on adrenal gland that secret adrenaline. It is a detox mechanism for your excretory and disgestive systems. Hypertension is also alleviated with this pose. It also helps in improving your concentration and enhances memory power.
Matsyasana: Matsyasana is also called the fish pose. Trust me, this is one of the Yoga poses that has been most beneficial for my ENT issues and allergy but the scientific benefits are implausible. It is the ultimate ‘Destroyer of all Diseases’. Matsyasana is best followed by Sarvangasana and Halasana. Scientifically as well, the pose is believed to cure respiratory ailments, which explains how my allergies and resultant ENT issues were cured. It is best to reduce your anxiety. I have a personal experience when it helped my mother fight her hyperanxiety. It cures constipation. It has many endocrinological benefits by regulating adrenal, parathyroid, pineal and pituitary glands. It also improves posture and flexibility.

She is a Classical dancer too, who has been the Kalathilakam at school and won prizes for Mohiniyattam in College. She is back to Yoga after 9 years sabbatical but has not lost the flexibility and balance at all.
