Yoga is well known for keeping us fit and flexible, making the body healthy offering a sense of calm and peace and spiritual awakening. It is believed to be good for the heart, the mind and improves strength and flexibility. Not just that yoga is also believed to help with Arthritis and helps in sleeping better. So, this might come as a shock but there are yoga poses that one shouldn’t practice during winter season, others that people with heart problems shouldn’t practice and yet some more that might complicate some other medical conditions so it’s important to know that yoga has its limitations and it’s not a cure for all afterall. 

Pranayama You Should Not Practice During Winters And If You Have Heart Troubles

When it comes to practicing Pranayama and effective yoga poses one might think that most poses would help the heart and warm up the body but let us tell you about poses that you should not indulge in if you are having heart troubles and the ones you should not practice in winter.

Chakrasana

If we talk about winter yoga poses then Chakrasana is not what you should be practicing. This pose puts pressure on your heart to pump blood faster and it can be avoided.

Halasana

Looking for yoga asanas to practice in winter? Don't go for Halasana because this pose needs you to lie down on your back and lift your legs and your heart would be pressured to regulate blood flow in your lower body and work against gravity.

Lets now talk about Pranayama. Pranayama is something that you shouldn’t practice if you are suffering from serious medical conditions and especially if you are having breathing issues. You also need to make sure that when you indulge in Pranayama none of your body parts feel any strain and your breathing is not forced. Also make sure you are not indulging in Pranayama right after having your meals. You should not practice Pranayama if you're exhausted. Practice the savasana pose for 15 minutes and then move towards the pranayama. And you should not be doing Pranayama if your lungs are congested, the chances of which are higher during winter or you suffer from hypertension.

This was about the exercises you shouldn’t do if you are suffering from chronic medical conditions and Pranayama you shouldn’t be doing during the winter season. Now let's learn about some winter yoga poses that you should practice to keep your body warm.

Here is a list of yoga asanas to practice in winter to keep yourself warm. These asanas release heat in the body, calm the mind and strengthen the body.
