Have you heard of super foods? They’re foods like kale and avocado that are more nutrient dense than other food on store shelves. Think of these yoga poses as super asanas! They seem to be the best yoga poses for…well…everything!
You know that yoga can benefit both your physical and mental health, but there are some that just really stand out to me. I do a lot of research on yoga poses, because I’m a strong believer in using yoga as a tool for a healthier you. Here are just a few of the yoga pose series I’ve put together here at Care2:
- Yoga for Concentration
- Yoga for Energy
- Yoga for Improving Circulation
- Yoga to Overcome Anxiety
- Yoga for Lower Back Pain
As you can see, the targets of these series vary widely. What I’ve been noticing lately, though, is that there are these “repeat offenders” whenever I’m compiling these series. Whether we’re talking about relieving aches and pain or improving mental health, these 12 postures seem to pop up over and over again. Not every pose is in every single one of my series, but these 12 poses seem to be a motif in my research.
Check out the slideshow to see the 12 asanas that seem to be the best yoga poses for practically everything. If you have a favorite super asana that’s not on this list, I’d love if you would share it in the comments!
