We have already seen the carious yoga poses for hypothyroidism, here are yoga poses for hyperthyroidism – the excess secretion of thyroxine by thyroid hormone.

Thyroid Hormone as we know is that small butterfly which controls your overall body functioning. It is thus important to maintain a balance in Thyroid function, which can be done with some easy yoga poses and diet control.

Sethubandasana (Bridge Pose)

This asana has been found to be very useful for hyperthyroid patients. If the posture becomes a fully formed bridge, the neck is stretched to the maximum possible extent, thus, helping in rectifying the symptoms caused by hyperthyroid.

Marjariasana (Cat Stretch)

This is beneficial for both hypo and hyperthyroidism.

Yoga for Hyperthyroidism

Shishu Asana (Child Pose)

Shishu asana which is like that of a child’s resting pose helps in relaxation mainly to the spine and helps in calming down the nervous system. It also relaxes the thyroid gland and thus, is good for hyperthyroid patients.

Shavasana (Corpse Pose)

Shavasana looks like the pose of dead body and helps in rectifying the thyroid imbalance.

Surya Namaskar (Salutation to the Sun) in a slow pace

The soothing effect that comes out of dong a slow-paced surya namaskar helps in dealing with hyperthyroidism.

You need to bring your extra secretion down and hence the slow pace is works best.



In addition to the yoga postures, certain breathing techniques can be done to reduce thyroid symptoms.

While Kapal Bhati and Nadi Shudhi are helpful for people with hypothyroidism, Ujjayi, Bhramari, cooling techniques like Sheetali and Nadi Shudhi are useful in alleviating hyperthyroid symptoms.

While all these act as an alternative to treat thyroid problems, proper medication is required to treat thyroid problems.
