Allergy Alert

Allergies aren't merely annoying; they can affect sleep, concentration, and productivity—and put you in a bad mood. Moreover, growing evidence shows that allergies and asthma may be two sides of the same coin: Asthmatics are more likely to be allergy sufferers, and those with allergies have a greater chance of developing asthma.

Modifying your yoga practice with calming poses can help you breathe more easily. And a regular yoga practice can help reduce allergy symptoms by tempering your immune system's response to the perceived offender—pollen.

Inversions can help clear the upper respiratory tract and drain secretions from the nose, allowing freshly oxygenated blood to flow into the oral cavity. Doing Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand) and Halasana (Plow Pose) can open nasal passages, ensuring proper drainage of sinuses.
