I taught a beautiful hatha practice this morning to my level 2-3 students - I did some of the poses with them and talked them through some of the sensations you can become aware of during a yoga practice. I started experiencing a scratchy throat, mild fever and stuffy nose yesterday and today it is settling in a bit. However, I have been taking naps for 2 days in a row (getting ready for my 3rd after writing this!).
I just had to share this! About 15 minutes into the class, my sinuses drained, my voice became stronger, and I felt a surge of energy in my body. That is my #1 yoga cold remedy: practice yoga daily and get plenty of rest, healthy food & water. I actually feel great in spite of having a cold.
