The "Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Hypothyroidism" chapter of my book Living Well With Hypothyroidism covers the subject of yoga and thyroid disease at great length.
Poses for the Thyroid
There is a specific pose that is thought to be of great benefit to the thyroid. It's known as a shoulder stand, or sarvangasan.
To see some illustrations and detailed instructions for the Sarvangasan/Shoulder Stand Pose for the thyroid, see:
