Yoga is an ancient practice to keep one’s body and mind healthy. And of all the things Yoga can improve, your sinus condition is one of them. Here are two asanas to begin with.

Adhomukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

The pose improves the blood circulation and relieves any knots and stress in the body. It releases pressure in neck and spine by stretching them.

  • Start with your wrists under your shoulders and knees under hips.
  • Put pressure on your toes and lift your hips upward and forming an upside-down “V” shape.
  • Bend your knees softly and bring your head between your arms.
  • Breathe through your nose, or take deep, slow breaths through your mouth.
  • Return to starting position and hold for a moment to stabilise your body.

Setu Bandhasana (Bridge Pose)

This asana relieves stress in the back and stretches your neck and chest. It helps reduce depression and anxiety which can trigger sinus.

  • Begin by lying on your back with feet on the floor and knees bent upward
  • Bring your arms to your sides, palms down by your hips.
  • Inhale and press into your feet to lift your hips upward.
  • Distribute the weight between your feet and the base of your shoulders equally, without putting too much pressure on your head and neck.
  • You can also clasp both hands together under you and squeeze your shoulder blades together.
  • Slowly lower your spine while exhaling and come to a resting position.
