5. Hero Posture
As with the Western Intense Pose, the Hero Posture improves digestion and strengthens the pelvis, and it helps alleviate high blood pressure. In order to get the most benefits, advises Lewis, you want to make sure you don’t round your shoulders and that your pelvis is straight. Traditionally, you would sit on the ground between your feet. However, if you find that creates too much strain, place a yoga block between your heels and sit on that instead.
