Dear Yoga Enthusiasts,
When you’re sick, usually the last thing you want to do is get out of bed and move your body around. But sometimes, especially when sore and achy, a little stretching could help the most.
The key to doing yoga while you’re sick is to move slowly and to be regularly checking in with your body at every step. When your immune system is down, you need to realize that your body isn’t ready to operate at its regular capacity. This means that those balances and stretches that you might normally be able to do with no issue, could be a little more difficult if you’re battling a sore throat, sinus infection, or quite frankly anything other ailments.
A good rule of thumb is to practice at 60% rather than the 110% you might normally give.
UNLESS you’re in the middle of what feels like the worst bug you’ve had in a long time — in that case, back off and don’t feel bad about skipping your practice. Instead, maybe spend some time in child’s pose and focus on relaxing poses to encourage rest.
Remember: Be kind to your body and feed it nutritious foods and lots and lots of water.
When you’re feeling under the weather, twists and gentle seated folds are your best friend, and getting your blood flowing just a little bit should help promote healing.
Try these three poses to work out the kinks between naps and cups of tea:
Butterfly – Take a seat and bring the bottoms of your feet together to touch. This pose stretches out the hips and gives you the chance to open up a bit.
Happy baby- Carefully, tilt back until you are laying on your back and reach for your feet. Bend your knees toward your ears and relax into happy baby. Take the chance to rock back and forth a bit, perhaps letting each leg stretch out straight one at a time.
Supine twist – It is common to be sleeping in awkward positions when sick. Whether it be due to soreness, congestion, or nausea, your body suffers from not sleeping comfortably. To remedy this, take the time for a supine twist every couple hours. Just lay down, bend a knee, and twist it to the opposite side of your body. Extend your arms and move your head to face the opposite direction that your knee is pointed in. Repeat on the other side.
