10 Yoga Poses to Improve Circulation

  • 2 of 6

easy pose

1. easy pose with deep breathing

Sit cross-legged on the floor. If you’re dealing with poor circulation, you don’t want to sit criss-cross for too long, but a minute or so of deep, focused breathing should be fine. Focus on taking deep breaths in and exhaling completely.

mountain pose

2. mountain pose

Come to a standing position, with your feet just under your hips, arms by your sides, and spine straight. Imagine a string going up your spine and to the sky, pulling your body straight and strong. You can leave your hands at your sides or bring them into prayer position, like in the photo. Stand here for a few deep breaths.

Once again yoga is great for almost anything that ails you. My favorite asana is the shoulder stand.
