This is the best way to get into your balance
What most people don’t realize: Zodiac signs can be associated not only with character traits, but also with specific body regions and organs. Adapted asanas and pranayama breathing techniques tailored to the individual zodiac sign can be a good support when the shoe pinches somewhere or the stress level rises immeasurably. Taureans and Capricorns, for example, can really loosen up with targeted yoga poses. And fire signs like Aries and Sagittarius can effectively fight burnout with certain asanas. Cancers, Scorpios and Pisces often find their inner compass in yoga, while air signs like Gemini and Libra can get a decent boost of creativity through yoga.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 20 | Bones and Joints
Capricorn tends to hold back its emotions, which is why focused yoga positions such as the standing forward bend or the mountain can serve it very well, as they help to open up its inner self. Additionally, “releasing the winds from the joints” with the “Pawan Mukta Asana” is recommended to provide optimal support for the joints. The yoga style Ashtanga Yoga is optimal for Capricorns, as it is physically demanding and meets the ambitions of this determined zodiac sign.
Aquarius | January 21 – February 19 | Veins and Lower Leg
For physical strength, Aquarians should practice stabilizing yoga poses such as the Warrior III, the Lateral Angle, the Skandasana, and the Triangle, which, in addition to strengthening the legs, also promote balance.
Pisces | February 20 – March 20 | Toes and Feet
Regenerative and sensitive yoga postures such as the heel sit, the child and the dog looking down bring physical calm and inner strength to the sensitive Pisces-born. Because of their connection to the feet, they should focus on the alignment of the feet (pada bandha) during the exercise.
Aries | March 21 – April 20 | Head and sense organs
For Fire signs with tireless zeal, mindful asanas such as Warrior I, Mountain, Seated Forward Bend, or Forearm Stand are recommended to alleviate restlessness. Aries-born people who often struggle with headaches may benefit from the Warrior I. This posture strengthens legs, back, hips and shoulders and counteracts headaches. Eye yoga and meditation bring serenity to the impulsive daily life of this zodiac sign.
Taurus | April 21 – May 20 | Neck, Throat, Shoulder
Taureans are the embodiment of loyalty, down-to-earthness and diligence. Nevertheless, they have their own little inflexibility and are afraid to jump out of their comfort zone. The zodiac sign of Taurus is closely related to the neck, throat and shoulders. Therefore, Taurus are prone to throat infections and respiratory problems. To build physical strength, grounding and elevating asanas such as the Crescent Moon, Lightning Bolt, Eagle and Cow are recommended for Taurus. Because of the close relationship between the jaw and neck, bulls should always be careful to relax their jaws during exercises to protect the sensitive neck.
Gemini | May 21 – June 21 | Bronchi, Lungs, Arms
Gemini are appreciated for their liveliness, curiosity and charm. Their adaptability and openness to new acquaintances make them popular conversationalists. Physically, Gemini are strongly connected to the bronchial tubes, lungs and arms. This makes them prone to shoulder tension. For them, yoga poses such as the lotus position, the cobra and the dancer are extremely useful. These postures lengthen the neck while relaxing the shoulder blades. Ujjayi breathing is particularly beneficial for the lungs, as it expands lung volume.
Cancer | June 22 – July 22 | Chest and abdominal organs
Come down, let yourself go and slow down! Sensitive Cancer pairs perfectly with Yin Yoga. Chest-opening and slow yoga positions such as the Eagle, Backbends, Wild Thing or the Boat contribute to physical relaxation and stimulate the abdominal organs – these exercises also help the sensitive water signs to relieve stress. After all, tension is followed by relaxation.
Leo | July 23 – August 23 | Back, Spine
Lions are known for their penchant for being in the spotlight, and they master life with graceful ease. Control of the spine and back is typical of your zodiac sign. To stretch this area optimally, the Ushtrasana – also known as the Camel – could offer a new perspective. This asana builds stability in the pelvic and back muscles while stretching the abdominal muscles. This yoga exercise can not only stimulate digestion, but is also extremely popular for menstrual pain.
Virgo | August 24 – September 23 | Intestine and Lymphatic System
The Virgo zodiac sign is closely connected with the intestines and the lymphatic system. People of this sign are more prone to intestinal problems and nervousness, so conscious relaxation time is of great importance to them. Because of their penchant for perfection, they benefit from yoga positions that promote letting go and bring relaxation, such as Happy Baby Pose, Savasana (dead pose), and seated or standing forward bend with arms folded in front of the body.
Libra | September 24 – October 23 | Pelvic Space and Kidney
It’s important for the scale to be in flow. Vinyasa yoga is an excellent way to wind down with smooth transitions from one asana to the next. The quest for harmony is fulfilled through carefully coordinated exercises in Vinyasa. Your yoga pose: The Boat. This pose challenges your balance while strengthening the abdominal muscles. It focuses on the center of the body and adds strength.
Scorpio | October 24 – November 22 | Sexual Organs and Pelvic Floor
Scorpio is a passionate and at the same time analytical person. He has a thirst for freedom and wants to realize himself. However, as much as possible without attracting attention. Your ideal asana is Ananda Balasana, also known as Happy Baby. It may be challenging to find balance at first, but with continued practice you will discover how soothing this position can be. Many experienced yogis swear by this asana and especially like to incorporate it into their routine before bed.
Sagittarius | November 23 – December 21 | Hips and Thighs
The zodiac sign is deeply connected with the hips and thighs. Sagittarians develop sciatica and hip disorders more easily. Meditative and rooting yoga postures like the Warrior II and the Lotus Sit help the Fire sign to open the hips and exercise the thighs.
