Yoga for your immune system

So, the munchkin completed his first full week of school with flying colors… and a snotty nose. As I was meditating on my class this week, I was simultaneously wrestling with a tickly, pre-sickness throat. Hence, I decided that this week’s class should focus on poses to support the immune system.

Here are a few poses you could try at home any time to bolster your immune health:

Simhasana (lion pose): This pose activates the tonsils and the lymph nodes in the throat. I’ve heard that it is possible to squash an oncoming bout of the sniffles if you practice this pose when you first feel ‘that tickle’ in your throat.

Bhujangasana (cobra pose): This pose, and any other upper back bends that open the chest and heart center, activate the thymus gland.

Namaskar Parsvakonasana (prayer twist): This twist puts pressure on the lymph nodes in the armpits.

Viparita Karani (legs-up-the-wall pose): All inversions work wonders on the immune system. Getting the heart and the feet above the head encourages blood and lymphatic fluid to circulate and rejuvenate the cells. I chose this very gentle inversion for class today… because, honestly, who wants to do a handstand with a snotty nose??

Supta Baddha Konasana (reclining bound angle pose): Hip openers, like this one, work on the lymph nodes and activate the spleen. I chose a supported, restorative version of this pose for class today so that we could comfortably remain in the pose longer while it worked its magic.

If you’re feeling a little under the weather, or if you feel as if you’re headed in that direction, give these poses a try. Also, remember that nasal cleansing with a neti pot can clear illness-inducing bacteria from the nasal passages and breathing exercises (pranayama) can improve the health of the nose, throat, and lungs. And everyone has their personal favorite healing recipes… one of my students was on her way home today to enjoy a bowl of chicken soup.

And for the cherry on top of the healing goodness? Ask for help from the Angels. I closed today’s practice with a guided meditation during savasana. I asked my students to visualize themselves surrounded by the emerald green light of Archangel Raphael (the Archangel of physical healing) and to allow that healing light to penetrate into any areas of their body that needed it.

Love, light… and a little luck! ♥

I heart my angels

I’ve felt somewhat conflicted about my new-found ‘virtual’ connectedness since I created this blog. Long story short, I’m often overwhelmed with amount of guidance I encounter when I log on. I wonder how I could possibly incorporate it into my life (irl)?? Would my time be better spent sticking to the simple truths that have managed to stick in my brain? Balance is key, for sure. Moderation.

And then, something simply beautiful will happen, and I’m reminded not to worry so much. I’m not the showrunner. I need not feel responsible for every last how and why. And if I’m ever feeling overwhelmed or indecisive, I need only call on my Angels.

That’s kinda what happened just now. I got a little ‘wink wink nudge nudge’ from my Angel crew. I just posted a love note to my Angels, asking for help in opening my heart. Before I could post it to my Facebook page, I discovered a link to this guided meditation with Jack Kornfield about the awakening and opening of the heart.

You may have to enter an email address to get to the actual page, but it’s well worth it. Audio and video are available for download.

RAAAAAAAAD!!!!!

Thanks.

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Happy Monday… it’s Doreen and the “nature Angels”- the fairies. I totally can’t believe how right on she is (ok, yes I can). I’m using the power of the full moon to clear, cleanse, and let go. For days, I’ve been purging my house, my body, my life of all that no longer serves me. Powerful winds are at my back and now is the time. Thanks, Doreen for reminding me of it again.

How about you? Does Doreen’s reading ring true this week?
