According to Ayurveda, the rasa dhatu and medha dhatu are responsible for the health of the breasts, a topic which is of special concern to thousands of women around the world. Thankfully, there are yoga asanas that can help out in this regard.
It’s important for women to keep their breast health in mind all the time.
The Diagonal Stretch helps open up the blockages.
The Frog Pose stretches the muscles and stimulates lymphatic drainage.
Two factors determine the healthiness of breasts - the health of the breast tissues, specifically rasa dhatu and medha dhatu, and the ease with which the lymph can flow through the channels without any obstacle. And Ayurveda recognizes that these obstacles can be both physical, such as a blocked duct, and energetic in nature, as occurs with deep-seated emotions.
To overcome these obstacles and maintain the health of your breasts, Ayurveda recommends practising these yoga asanas
Sit or stand in a comfortable position.
Place the thumbs of your hands on your palm, right below the little finger. Keep the rest of your fingers in a straight line.
Pull your arms on your sides, parallel to the ground.
Next, keep your palms facing the floor.
Now, raise either of your arms while bringing the other one down.
Take a deep breath as you raise one arm and breathe out as you put it down. Repeat with the other arm.
Do this for 2 minutes.
Stand with feet slightly apart
Squat down in a table pose.
Stretch your knees as wide as you can.
Next, place your elbows and forearms in such a way that it is pressed against the floor with your palms pressed against each other.
Spread your knees as wide as you can.
Hold the pose for ten seconds and come back to the starting position.
Repeat 10 times.
According to Ayurveda, breasts are made up of medha dhatu (fatty tissue), glandular tissue and lymphatic drainage. Lymph is a vital component of rasa dhatu. And these asanas aid lymphatic drainage, clear the blockage, and prevent diseases.
