So just like clockwork after the Holidays I got my annual cold. I guess it all of the garbage and running around during the holiday season that just makes my body say “woah slow down.”
The worst of my cold was yesterday with the stuffy nose and the chills and fever. Today I am feeling a lot better but i had that aching feeling in my back and the sinus pressure left over from the nasty-ness still being stuck. I wanted to get up and move around (plus my boyfriend told me I needed to get off the couch today 🙂 ) so I looked for a yoga class to boost your immune system and work on the muscles in my back.
Last week I sent a tweet to Elsie Escobar (her like is on the side) asking her for postures that were good for sinus pressure since I could feel my cold starting then. She sent me a link to her level 2-3 class for keeping yourself centered when left gets a little crazy.
Now I am no where near to a level three for inversions (which is what most of this class was about) but I was able to modify it for e with some down dogs, headstands and handstand preps. I also had to do this since I was a little tippy still from the pressure in my head.
I actually feel a lot better now and I wanted to shar this link again with you so that you could have a short Yoga class to boost your immune system and help you feel better when life throws you a curve ball.
If anyone else has any other suggestions for kicking a cold please let me know!
Have a great day!
