The Perfect Yoga Pose for Your Zodiac Sign’s Tension

Celebrate International Yoga Day on June 21 by discovering the best yoga pose for your zodiac sign. Address your unique stress points and find your inner calm with these tailored asanas.

 

Aries: Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)

Let’s start! What could be the best yoga pose for the zodiac sign of Aries? Virabhadrasana II! For those who don’t speak Sanskrit, this is the warrior pose in position II. Here, the warrior has open hips, arms spread to the sides, and a distant gaze. This pose will allow you to channel and focus all your energy on a single point.

Taurus: Child’s Pose (Balasana)

Taurus, you can sometimes be headstrong (like Aries?) and also need to channel your energy. To calm your mind and body, I recommend the Balasana yoga pose for your zodiac sign. Indeed, this child’s pose, curled up, will offer a cocoon of physical and mental protection. You can perform it with the knees close together or apart.

Gemini: Seated Forward Bend (Paschimottanasana)

For Gemini, I recommend the Paschimottanasana pose. It’s somewhat similar to Balasana, but with the legs extended and the face on the knees. It may seem complicated, but it’s quite simple to relieve the tensions of a curious and multitasking Gemini. The knees can be bent (or not), the back straight (or rounded): make the pose your own without straining.

Cancer: Cat-Cow (Marjaryasana-Bitilasana)

You Cancer sometimes carry great emotions on your shoulders. To soothe the tensions your zodiac sign feels in the back and neck, I particularly think of the Cat-Cow (Marjaryasana-Bitilasana) movement, an opening and closing of the back/heart.

Leo: Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)

You are often leaders, sometimes bearing a lot of responsibilities, which can make you authoritarian, dear Leo! You also seek sunlight and the love of others. For the zodiac sign of Leo, I suggest the Bhujangasana yoga pose, which opens the heart and shoulders. The cobra pose can also improve your back flexibility.

Virgo: Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)

Like Cancer, you Virgo sometimes have an overflow of emotions and thus issues expressing yourself, which can make you appear cold. For such tensions, I always recommend a yoga pose that involves bending for the zodiac signs. Here, Uttanasana is done standing, feet hip-width apart, and the upper body leaning forward. The knees can be bent, hands can grab the opposite elbow.

Libra: Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana)

Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana) is a very good yoga pose for your zodiac sign, Libra. Indeed, it is somewhat unbalanced but requires a lot of balance to be maintained (see what I did there?). This tension will help you reduce stress and relax. To avoid back pain, I advise tightening your buttocks, or even placing a cushion under your back.

Scorpio: Eagle Pose (Garudasana)

Scorpio is a sign of passion, which can be overwhelming for others as well as for yourself! For this zodiac sign, I do not suggest performing the yoga pose of the Scorpion (Vrischikasana), which is for an expert level. Instead, the pose of another strong animal, the eagle, might help you balance your energies and improve your concentration. Follow the tutorial…

Sagittarius: Low Lunge (Anjaneyasana)

Sagittarians are known for their independent and tumultuous nature. With this type of character, your hips, the second center of emotions, can become tense and heavy. Various lunge poses are perfect for these tensions, as they open your hips and promote flexibility (of the body and mind).

Capricorn: Mountain Pose (Tadasana)

Patience, perseverance, caution, and a sense of duty undoubtedly define you, Capricorn. Indeed, you are always seeking success and the right method, and when that’s not the case, tensions return. The basic yoga pose to relax this zodiac sign is Mountain Pose (Tadasana). Not so simple, it will help you reduce physical and mental tensions.

Aquarius: Half Lord of the Fishes (Ardha Matsyendrasana)

Almost there! Aquarians, you have original, mysterious minds, ahead of your time. You can sometimes be frustrated at not being able to think as you wish. Thus, I thought of a creative yoga pose for this zodiac sign: Ardha Matsyendrasana. Better known as Half Lord of the Fishes, this twist stimulates the mind and relaxes the spine. Performed on both sides, it offers a new vision of the world.

Pisces: Fish Pose (Matsyasana)

Naturally, for the zodiac sign of Pisces, I recommend the yoga pose of the fish! This very sensitive sign yet often lacks self-confidence. To open your self-esteem and heart, towards yourself and others, the Fish Pose (Matsyasana) can be recommended. Be cautious, as it’s a pose for Intermediate or Expert levels; take precautions before performing it.
