Relieve Sinus Pressure and Congestion With This Yoga Sequence

When your head is aching from sinus congestion and your nose is plugged up, going to yoga class is probably not the best option. Rather than completely neglecting your yoga practice, opt for a minisequence at home to open up your chest and improve your circulation.

If you are looking for a little more of a workout, simply complete a few rounds of Sun Salutations between each congestion-soothing posture.

While these poses are good for these symptoms, 2 of these three postures are extremely advanced. The Bridge pose while not as intense still needs some forward bending to warm the spine. A few rounds of Sun Salutations are not ample enough for these postures. Even an advanced practicing yogi needs to do easier postures to prepare their body to get into these postures. Without proper preparation these postures could harm more than help, which is their original intent. Sharon Friedman, 500 hour Certified Viniyoga Teacher
