The Thyroid is a two-inch long, butterfly shaped endocrine gland located at the base of the neck, just below the Adam’s apple. The thyroid produces hormones that regulate heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight.

So the Throat Chakra (5 Chakra) were the thyroid is located, is all about our communication, it is about being heard, seen and understood. It is about speaking your truth freely without censorship, it shouldn’t be shamed or judged. There are various thyroid disorders like Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s Disease, Graves Disease.

So I want to show you these poses they are considered throat-stimulating. They’re thought to improve circulation and energy flow around the thyroid, and stretch and strengthen the neck.

Specific exercise to improve blood circulation, lymph flow and prevent functional decline of your thyroid.

  • Shoulder circles backwards and forwards
  • Alternate Shoulder circles, tilt your neck to one side and roll that shoulder, switch to the other side
  • Shrug your shoulders really high, tip your head back and wobble from side to side
    make a fist and bang your fist at the opposite side right next to the neck, switch to the other side that will break up the energy, there is a stagnation right from the neck the the shoulder so energetically it will loosen up and it makes you smile
