Winter poses to beat those colds & flus
Poses that open the chest, throat and sinuses will limit congestion and support your respiratory organs. We have gathered some poses to invigorate and warm the kidneys. Also clearing away mucus and phlegm. It is important to stay focused on staying well over the busy festive season when we love to overindulge. These poses are metabolically invigorating and will help stimulate lymphs and avoid stagnation.
Like any fitness routine clear some space in your week to focus on keeping your body healthy. Create a clear space at home or join us for one of our winter workshops. Our ever-popular restorative yoga workshop continues on Sunday, a gentle practice to give your body some valuable time to rest and heal.
