Cats & Cows = easier breathing?!

The yoga move known as Cat-Cow pose has been shown to assist in clearing the sinuses by increasing circulation and opening blocked airways.

 

The pose:

  • Begin on your hands and knees, with hands under shoulders and knees under hips.
  • On the inhale, expand chest forward, moving shoulders back and sitting bones up.
  • On the exhale, do the opposite, rounding the back and trying to touch the tip of your nose to your belly button.
  • Do 10 slow repetitions several times per day, as needed.

*The exhale helps clear out old toxins from the lungs and sinuses.

*The inhale helps bring in new, fresh oxygen to energize the body.
