Yoga when you're under the weather


I’ve been hanging in here with a bad cold, sinus congestion, cough. (Doc confirmed it’s not the flu or pneumo, just a cold.) I feel like I should be doing something easy, gentle, just to keep my muscles loose. What I can’t do is anything with my head hanging down. I’ve been doing the beginners’ series for several months; fairly limber, but not ready for intermediate yet. Suggestions for yoga with a simple cold?


Rachel’s Hatha Yoga for a Hangover is a really popular one for those days when you need a chilled out class and some time to recover. It can be great for when you are sick too.

Otherwise, try a restorative class. We have plenty to choose from. Select ‘Restorative’ under the Style filter and you’ll see.
