Let's talk about something sick here. And, I mean it in the non-slang way. I'm talking about literally being sick. Under the weather. Coughs. Sinuses. Headaches, the whole thing. ⠀
⠀
Do you practice yoga when you're sick? If so, what do you practice on the mat? ⠀
⠀
Last week while in Manresa, Spain, I was suddenly struck with a strange feeling in my throat. What felt like a little feather stuck in my throat progressed to a several-day-long headache, dry (and aggravating coughs), and nausea.⠀
⠀
I couldn't believe it. I had to prepare for my Rogue Yogi Re:Treat in Granada. I needed to practice the sequences I put together for my excited group. ⠀
⠀
So, that's exactly what I did. ⠀
⠀
Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra, Meditation. As much as my whole body ached, the practice was just what it needed. ⠀
⠀
What do you practice when you're sick? Comment below!⠀

  • rogue.yogi@warith_me oh totally. The poses feel so therapeutic this way
  • greenearthyoga@rogue.yogi yess! It helps out a ton especially if you have sinus pressure
  • rogue.yogi@pauinha6 have you had strep throat-like symptoms but they were just allergies? The antibiotics I was given haven't done anything to stop these dry coughs
  • rogue.yogi@beyourbestselfcoach you definitely are with the mindfulness. A lot of people have been sick this week. Rest up and restore!
  • rogue.yogi@relaxgetfit the hip just loves to tighten up doesn't it!?!? Cobblers pose just feels so great with a heating pad on the belly
  • rogue.yogi@greenearthyoga I hope you feel better too!!
  • warith_meYes exactly You're right, but it's my way when I'm sick 😷🌹🙏🏼
  • rogue.yogi@warith_me yes and a long savasana with a warm compress on the forehead. A great way
  • warith_me@rogue.yogi Yep 👍🏼 This'll be Awesome 👏🏼 and ll be happy to know the result later. 🤗🤗 get better soon.
  • yogassionAbsolutely. Best medicine. ❤
  • michellethecoffeecoach@rogue.yogi yes! 🙌🏽💕
  • thatyogisarI love this💕!
  • pauinha6@rogue.yogi yes! I don't have many allergies but food can do that too. And throat pain or weird feeling can also happen with dry cough. Last time i had it took forever to go away even with a cough medicine. Just be careful because docs say dry cough is the worst when it comes to pneumonia cases. Talk to your pharmacist about a syrup or something for dry cough and if it continues, see a doctor. Especially if you get fever!
  • queen_la_reynaTbh yoga when I'm sick helps me feel better, my problem is my nose running every 5 seconds when im upside down
  • yoginiliciousDepends on what kind of sick I am. I do a LOT of twists and binds when sick and Vishnu mudra breathing (if I'm not completely stuffed up) alternating nostrils. Lots of stretch and I avoid inversions when my head is congested
  • rogue.yogi@yoginilicious I also did the alternate nostril breathing a few days ago and it was so helpful for the sinuses.
  • musclehead_yogi5 Surya A, 5 Surya B, Fundamentals and as much of Yoga Chikitsa, I can handle...sometimes I don't make it past Fundamentals and, that's OK. But, I never practice if I have a fever. #ashtangi 🙏🏼🕉.
  • novi_d_kristianaYes. Doing Yin Yoga 😍😍
  • rogue.yogi@musclehead_yogi yeah I find that when there's a fever the only thing that feels good is yin, restorative, yoga nidra and warm compresses!
  • rogue.yogi@novi_d_kristiana i loooooove Yin Yoga!
