Pretty much right away, provided you're sure that the symptoms you're left with are not those of a systemic infection. Particularly when it's yoga - you can do that pretty much right away, because the risk is low. That risk, obviously, is that a viral infection can affect the heart and then you can develop pericarditis which can be fatal.
However, for sinusitis, which is a local problem with inflammation of the sinuses and not a viral infection, it's different and so you can train. You might feel a bit lousy during training because your breathing will be affected and you might be a little tired, but if you just back off a little, you'd be fine.
If you get flu, then it's important to rest and recover well. No point risking it for the sake of a few days of training. For flu, a week after symptoms are cleared is usually safe, though again, those are just rules that don't always fit every case. The key is that the symptoms must be gone.
