6. Half Lord of the Fishes
Poses such as this one that involve twisting your body mass and improve circulation to your internal organs. Some of the studies included in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine suggest that improved circulation, particularly to the pancreas, could help improve glucose sensitivity. Hold the pose, with your right arm against your left knee and twisting to the right, for 3 to 5 breaths, and then repeat with your left arm against your right knee while twisting to the left. A precaution: Twisting poses are generally not advised for people with high blood pressure, so you may want to skip these next two if you suffer from hypertension.
