Asanas against colds

Your yoga practice can help to prevent colds, relieve their symptoms when you have them up and make that they last less time.

A simple way to avoid colds and flu is to take more positions that open up the chest, such as Bhujangasana (Cobra posture), Matsyasana (fish posture), and Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (bridge position) in your practice of yoga.

The chest openings stimulate blood flow to the thymus, lymphatic system gland situated behind the sternum that regulates and controls the maturation of all lymphocytes T of the endocrine system, segregating all hormones necessary for that purpose.

Experts suggest practicing the asanas three mentioned once a day to prevent the flu and the cold, and twice a day if you already experience the first symptoms. It will take you five minutes to three positions, and will notice the difference this winter.

If also not forget to do breathing exercises as we recommend in the corresponding section (pranayama) We assure you that the cold will not dent in your health.
