In this guest post we look at the relationship between types of yoga and star-signs to reveal the best type of yoga based on your star-sign.
Most people may wonder what Yoga and Astrology have in common. But according to Yoga astrology, each sign of the Zodiac is associated with a part of the body that requires attention. For example, for Cancer people, it’s the heart and for Capricorns, it’s the knee. So focusing on these areas will do them good, especially where their health is concerned. Now let’s see what the stars say about which yoga poses suit your sign and body.
Yoga Astrology — Best Yoga Poses For Your Star Sign
Sign: Aries (March 21–April 20)
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. They are very fast in all that they do and rush into things recklessly. It is important for them to relax. The standing forward bend, head-to-knee pose, and savasana will help to calm them down.
Sign: Taurus (21 April–21 May)
Taurus is very stubborn and tend to dig their heels in when confronted with problems. The cat pose, cow pose and bridge helps them to release stress in the neck, shoulders and head.
Sign: Gemini (22 May–21 June)
Gemini are multitaskers and do several things at the same time. This puts stress on their shoulders. The cobra pose, bow pose and downward facing dog pose is good for them.
Sign: Cancer (22 June –22 July)
Cancer retreats into a shell at the first hint of trouble. They should try chest and heart-opening poses like upward plank pose, dancer’s pose and half moon pose.
Sign: Leo (23 July –22 August)
Leos are sincere and loyal people who also love drama. The spine is one of their most sensitive areas and it needs attention. The camel pose, lion pose and revolved triangle are best for them.
Sign: Virgo (23 August–23 September)
Virgos are often accused of being cold and critical. The full boat pose, peacock pose and seated twisting pose will open them up and make them more approachable.
Sign: Libra (24 September–23 October)
Librans are associated with balance. The tree pose, side crane pose and extended hand-to-toe pose are good for them.
Sign: Scorpio (24 October–22 November)
Scorpio is known for their intensity and passion. They have a strong sexuality too. The lotus pose, camel pose and wide-angle seated forward bend will help them to relax.
Sign: Sagittarius (23 November–21 December)
Sagittarius is always on the move. This causes the hips to become tight. Hip stress can be reduced with half pigeon pose, lizard pose and high lunge.
Sign: Capricorn (22 December–20 January)
The symbol for Capricorn being the mountain goat, they tend to be surefooted and resolute. Because of this, alignment is key for you. Strengthen your signature knees with chair pose, mountain pose, and tree pose.
Sign: Aquarius (21 January–19 February)
The calves and ankles are very important for Aquarians. Eagle pose, lotus pose and revolved side angle can be good for them.
Sign: Pisces (20 February–20 March)
Pisces people are selfless and spiritual. They are dreamers too, so to feel grounded they can try the half frog pose, mountain pose and standing split.
