Thank you very much for providing this information, it is extremely helpful.

Indiana hormone

Recently visited an <a href="">Indiana hormone optimization</a> doctor, and was amazed by the level of quality care I received. <a href="">Hormonee Optimization</a> is so under the radar and should be practiced more by regular physicians.

I have chronic fatigue syndrome and thus struggle with constant fatigue throughout the day and then can't sleep at night because the adrenals do not turn off. I look forward to trying the poses you suggested. I am having a difficult time viewing a bound bridge pose. I know the pose but have not seen in bound. I agree that images would be helpful. Thanks for addressing this issue.


This article is so helpful to me. Thank you Dr. Cole.


My sister has a Heart condition known by the initials ARVD. Her heart races to 200+ beats and does not go down. She now has defib;ulator which goes off when heart goes to high. Is there any kind of yoga she could practice to help her with this condition?

Lana Bates

I googled the names of these poses + "pic" and got pics of all of them.

I too wish you would provide pictures with each pose. I find it most frustrating and unclear. Thank you for your considration.


do you know anyone who practices in the palm desert or la quinta area who specializes in yoga that will help with the adrenal glands?

I wish photos were provided on all these asanas. Every article with pose suggestions I read, I feel frustrated when the prose describes a variation but YogaJournal does not show an image of it.


"By "adrenal exhaustion" I presume you mean the fatigue that comes from being under chronic stress without sufficient recovery"

Just to clarify, adrenal exhaustion, or adrenal fatigue, is a condition where your adrenal glands become (prepare to be shocked) fatigued through chronic need for extra production of hormones (most notably Cortisol and DHEA).

No amount of yoga poses will cure this, though I don't for one second doubt that they help.

If you're suffering from adrenal exhaustion then you need to be treating your body with a ton of supplements, most importantly licorice root extract. You should really talk to a doctor or helath professional for more detailed information.
