Spending so much time indoors exposes us to a lot more germs in winter.

Yoga helps the body cleanse the kidneys and liver and lowers our stress level; all of which provide an immune boost.
Poses and tips: Martin thinks restorative yoga that calms the body down and works on stress hormones is best for the immune system. Meanwhile any pose that opens up the chest -like a bridge or camel- will improve your immunity.
