8 Yoga Poses For Busy Women

4 min read

The image of a modern woman resembles that of Goddess Durga with eight hands. She is expected to be on her toes, revolving in all directions, and managing everything in her wake — work, home, kids, family, etc.

It isn’t easy to find the time to spend on yourself when you have so many things to do. We need to boost our self-worth, individual outlook, and personal space so that we can get on with our daily tasks. Yoga is a science that can help you overcome feelings like lethargy and low energy.

Yoga is a great self-care tool, especially for working women who have no time to themselves. Yoga is a great way to relax after a long day at work or running errands. You might like to try these yoga poses for busy women.

Tree Pose

 The tree pose helps to balance the body and adds confidence. You can test your concentration by standing on one leg and placing the soles of both feet on the thigh.

It is said that this pose balances the entire body and increases flexibility in the spine. It also opens up the chest, which allows for an increase in oxygen flow. This pose opens the heart chakra and strengthens the lower part of the body.

Warrior Pose

A woman who is always on her feet needs to have a solid lower body and a grounded mind. The Warrior Pose offers these two qualities, along with many others.

It is known to activate the sacral chakra and to release trapped emotions from the hip area (a common location to store unreleased feelings) while stretching the hips, quadriceps, and inner as well as outer thighs. It strengthens the shoulders, arms, and core. Overall, it is a great energy booster.

Pose Wide Legs Forward Bend

 This pose works deeply on the inner thighs and hip flexors. It can also cure tightness and pain in your lower back caused by sitting at a desk for long periods.

It increases blood flow to the brain and relieves stress. Second, it relaxes your lower back by massaging and stretching the muscles of the lumbar region.

Goddess Pose

Constipation, stomach cramps, menstruation pain etc. These are common problems that women face. Food is often packaged, processed, or lacking in fiber. Regularly practicing this pose will promote a healthy gut. It also allows for a healthy flow.

It helps to relieve lower back pain and ease backache by working on the lower body.

Cobra Pose

Cobra is ideal for women who are constantly on the go, especially those with back pain. Cobra also strengthens lower back muscles, which will prevent future back pain. It corrects rounded shoulders as well as blockages in the heart chakra.

Boat Pose

This pose offers the benefits of crunches or intense ab exercises. It is useful when you don’t have time to squeeze in an intensive workout but still want to lose the excess flab around the lower back and belly.

It helps to tone the core and build strong abs. It is also good for digestion and relieves constipation.

Bridge Pose

This pose helps to increase flexibility and strengthen the back muscles. The basic bridge pose is a good place to start for women who have difficulty bending forward or backward or sitting for long periods.

The bridge pose tones and strengthens hip muscles. In the gym, lifting the pelvic floors in a prone position to tone and sculpt the lower body is a popular exercise.

Half-Twist Seat

Twists are an essential part of every yoga practice because the spine must remain flexible and supple. This seated position can be very beneficial for massaging organs such as the stomach, liver, and pancreas. Twists are also a great way to tone your sides and trim your waist.

All these eight yoga poses, if practiced every day or thrice a week for five to seven breaths, can offer more than just long-term physical benefits. The sense of inner calm and clarity you’ll get from having time to yourself and directing your focus inward will also improve your mental and emotional well-being — leaving you more equipped and ready to take on whatever tasks and curveballs life may throw at you.
