Women, whether they are in the postnatal period, or who simply want to improve their vitality and energy levels can try some of the following poses. The Fish asana (Matsyasana), for example, helps women increase their ability to process oxygen, and aids with relaxation. This pose is also known to strengthen back and neck muscles, while also improving the responses of the nervous system. The hero yoga pose is one of the best if the woman is looking for a period of time dedicated to meditation.
The Cat Pose
The Cat Pose (Bidalasana) is one of the most common asanas used by women, regardless of age or physical condition. The Cat Pose is excellent for increasing spinal column flexibility and relaxing the lower back muscles, which carry the weight of the whole upper body while standing. The specific position of the cat pose also favors an increased kidney blood irrigation. This pose can be followed by the head stand, a slightly more difficult pose, but which also produces some beneficial results. This pose allows certain parts of the body rest as they do not have to function to maximum capability due to the reverse of gravity. Women may specifically benefit from this pose as it relieves back pain and lower back muscle pressure.
