“Help I can’t breathe! My nose is all congested, my eyes itch and I just want to curl up and DIE!”
Yoga is especially important to those who suffer from allergies. For a number of reasons.
Holy Grail #1
Do allergies stress you out? Of course they do! They put a damper on your day-to-day life. Well stress can actually make your symptoms worse. When practiced regularly, yoga can help relieve tension and improve your happiness and well being.
Second The Best #2
It’s a great alternative to outdoor exercise. Especially when airborne pollen is at it’s peak, you kinda want to avoid the outdoors all together. And since yoga is most often practiced indoors, it’s a safe haven!
Three’s Company #3
Yoga many help you with allergy complications, like daytime drowsiness, headaches, and poor concentration. The act of focusing on your breath may help you to improve your concentration and take your mind off those dang allergies for a bit.
Four-ward Fold #4
Certain yoga postures may help open the airways and relieve nasal congestion. If your allergies are acting up try Bridge Pose, Fish Pose or Supported Shoulder Stand to expand the chest and lungs and free the breath.
Give yoga a try and see if it helps drain all that nasty stuff from inside your body. Hot yoga really is the best because the humidity helps us breath and not feel so dried out. Come give it a whirl at Spotted Dog Yoga!
