The thyroid is a serious disease that affects your body in many ways. The 'thyroid' is a specialized gland in the throat that produces a hormone called thyroxine. These hormones play an important role in many functions of your body. If a person's thyroid gland becomes over-active and starts producing a large amount of thyroxine hormone, it is called hyperthyroidism. If you are affected by this disease, along with medication, you should also practice some exercises. By doing these exercises, your thyroid calms down and the hormone levels start to be controlled.

Balasana, daha bildiğimiz adıyla #çocukpozu genelde ‘ego’dan uzaklaşma, mütevazileşmekle bağdaştırılan bir poz. Genelde yoğun poz geçişleri ardından içe dönüp duraklamak için yapılan bu pozun altında aslında kendini dinlemeye cesaret etme erdemi yatıyor. Günümüzde zihnimizin dağılması için sürekli dışarıdan uyaranlarla hayatımızı donatırken, komiktir ki iç sesimize kulak kesilmeye cüret etmek, popüler kültüre baş kaldırmak gibi bir şey gibi görünür olabiliyor. Kendi ihtiyaç ve düşüncelerimizi online onay, yeni kıyafetler, alkol, yemek, fitness hatta güçlü yoga pozları ya da dinamik pratikler gibi dışarıdan alınan “ilaç”larla uyuşturmaktansa, gerçek değişimler genelde duraklayıp kendimizi dinlemekten kaçmadığımızda gerçekleşiyor diye düşünüyorum.🕉 Sizce Balasana pratik edilip gelistirilebilecek bir poz mudur? —————-———— Balasana, or #childpose as we know it, is a posture that connects us with humbleness and withdraw us from the ‘ego’ Instead of numbing our needs and thoughts with external “medicines” such as online approval, new clothes, alcohol, food, fitness, or even a stronger yoga posture or more dynamic practice, the real transformation is likely to occur when we pause and listen to ourselves. 🕉 Would you ever think of Child’s Pose as something to practise and improve upon? 📸: @bahattininsta
