Practice the Reverse Triangle every morning to open your sinuses:
I have a short yoga routine that I practice every morning. It includes the Happy Baby, Downward Facing Dog, Warrior, Planks, and also Strength Conditioning poses.
One pose that I use, which I found is really helpful to opening the sinuses, is called the Twisted Triangle pose or Parivrtta Trikonasana. If you’re not into yoga or if it sounds difficult, it’s not, and there are variations of it as well, so follow along and you’ll benefit from the stretch and see how it opens your sinuses!
Note: I have also found that this move is especially beneficial after:
1). Using the Sinus Survival Herbal Spray
2). Placing a drop of Sinus Essentials Oil on the forefinger and rubbing it against the thumb and then swabbing the outside of the nostrils. This soothing action helps to open the sinus passages and also to open the mind. I’ve turned a lot of yogi friends on to this and it’s become a part of their yoga routine.
The Reverse Triangle Benefits:
- It’s a great stretch for the groins, hips, and hamstrings. If you’re a cyclist, it is also helpful for stretching the sciatic nerve and to relieve back pain
- Opens congested sinuses to breathe clearly from the nose
- Strengthens hips, thighs, and back muscles
- Improves balance and stability
- Massages organs to increase their detoxification ability
- Improves metabolism and is beneficial for digestive issues and constipation
1). Feet should be shoulder-width apart and in a comfortable stance. Extend your arms like you’re flying. Bend over with your chest parallel to the floor, keep your arms fully extended, and look to the floor and hold for 10 seconds.
2). Now return to a standing position with your hands on your hips. Turn your right foot out to about 90 degrees. The center of your right knee should be aligned with the center of your right ankle. Now pivot your left foot inward by 45-degrees.
3). Raise your left arm reaching for the sky (ceiling), with your bicep next to your left ear.
4). Now exhale and lean forward from your hips and place your left hand to the outside of your right foot as you open your torso to the right. Note: if you’re a beginner, you can simply try to touch your left elbow to your outside right knee.
5). Now inhale and lengthen your spine. Next, exhale as you roll your right shoulder back and extend our right arm straight up to the sky (ceiling).
6). Now look up at your right hand.
7). Keep your hips level and press down through your back heel.
8). Hold this pose for 10 seconds if you’re a beginner or up to a minute for others.
9). To come out of the pose, gently release your twist and return to standing.
10). Now repeat on the other side.
Practicing this Twisted Triangle routine can not only stretch, but lengthen the whole body and provide you with morning energy.
Practicing Twisted Triangle can lengthen and stretch the whole body, rejuvenating your energy in no time! Note: This position is a slow, fluid movement and is not a callisthenic, therefore do not twist quickly. Only turn as far as you’re comfortable turning. Over time, you will be able to stretch further and notice your flexibility. This can be done by individuals of all ages.
Detox – A Great Side Benefit
As noted earlier, this pose massages the organs and provide detoxification of your organs. For those who are on a Candida Elimination or a Sinus Survival Fungal Overgrowth program, this is a must exercise to assist in the detoxification of the candida albican toxins.
