How To Yoga Your Way Out Of A Cold

03 May How To Yoga Your Way Out Of A Cold

It’s getting to that time of year when the coughs and sneezes might catch you out. You may well not want to, or feel up to, doing a hard work out. It’s good to know though that you can still practice yoga when you feel like you’re getting a cold or are right in the thick of it. It can actually help your body to fight the nasty bacteria better and boost your immune system. 

If the prospect of the heated yoga studio calls, just note that a heated power vinyasa might not be such a great idea right now. Adjust your practice to a slower and more restorative one, like a Level 1, yin or nidra practice.

Not feeling up to getting to a studio? We’ll show you three poses that can help you relax, breathe more easily and feel better quicker. All you need is a bolster, some blocks and a yoga mat. Let’s get started:

 

These poses will leave you feeling relaxed, calm and also cost little energy, so you can let the pose do its magic on your way to recovery. Soon you will be able to step on your mat again and heat up your practice.

If you don’t have any yoga props at home, check out the amazing yin yoga classes at your nearest Power Living studio or try out our online classes at Yogaholics.
