A fast-paced lifestyle combined with erratic sleep and food habits can spark of a new age problem—chronic fatigue syndrome. Yoga will help build your stamina, up your immunity and elevate your mood, helping you beat the condition. These yoga poses recommended by yoga expert Raman Mishra are powerfully therapeutic.
Ustrasana or the camel: This pose gives a gentle, heart-opening stretch to the back, energising the body. The pose also stimulates the spine and the nervous system.
Ardhachandrasana or half moon pose: This dynamic yoga pose stimulates blood flow through the body, boosts vitality and helps combat fatigue. Practising this pose can be an excellent way to calm your mind.
Seubandhasana or bridge pose: Back bends such as setubandhasana are very invigorating for the entire body. It opens up the chest muscles and improves respiration, awakening you.
Marjariasana or cat stretch: Arching the back in this asana helps relieve spinal stiffness. The expansion and release of the torso work on the respiratory system and boosts breathing capacity.
Garudasana or eagle pose: This pose releases stiffness in shoulders which can bring about stress relief. It also opens up the chest to boost respiration and energise you. This asana will stimulate your upper, middle and lower back and engage the muscles of your hamstrings.
Pawanmuktasana or wind-relieving pose: The muscles that support respiration such as the neck muscles and shoulder muscles are relaxed in this asana. It is a very powerful yoga pose to strengthen the spine and make you feel less tired.
