One of the main reasons for the condition of hormone imbalance is stress. As yoga is now a worldwide phenomenon, many of us already know yoga dramatically reduces stress. Yoga brings our focus to breathing. This process of observation or ‘turning inward’ has a stimulating effect on your hormones and endocrine system.

Physically speaking, yoga asanas which include some inverted poses such as headstand, handstand and shoulder stand are beneficial to your thyroid, heart, hormones and lungs. But these are for advanced practitioners and must be done with guidance. Simple forward bending postures are beneficial in reducing stress, anxiety and fatigue.

Here are a few yoga asanas as suggested by grandmaster Akshar that you can try at home for hormonal imbalance.
