5 Yoga Poses for Immunity

| 9/9/2016 7:00:00 AM

Fall is, officially, only a few weeks away! And as much as I love the cooler weather and beautiful foliage, the changing seasons also bring a greater risk of getting sick—at least for me. In an attempt to ward off illness, stay active in a new city and just be a bit healthier, I’ve been practicing yoga more often. 

Yoga has been shown to yield positive health results, aside from increased flexibility and relaxation. So before seasonal illnesses can even begin to wreak havoc on your health, incorporate these poses into your daily routine to help bolster your immune system.

Child’s Pose (Shishuasana)

Child’s Pose is by far one of the easiest and most relaxing yoga poses around.  It’s also great for cold and flu season because it requires very little exertion (if you’re already feeling under the weather) and the forward fold position can help with decongestion

Simply kneel on your yoga mat, bring your toes together and widen at the knees (if necessary). Gently fold forward at the hips, keeping your arms at your sides, and bringing your forehead as close to the mat as possible.
