Yoga for Asthma

YOGA -- Therapeutic use
BREATHING exercises

Abstract:This article reviews relevant research on the possible benefits of Yoga interventions for individuals with asthma. Research suggests that Yoga, especially when practiced with inclusion of the whole of its traditional techniques (including âsana, prânâyâma, meditation, and relaxation) provides benefit for asthma sufferers. The article then offers suggestions for Yoga teachers and Yoga therapists who would like to develop a Yoga practice for students with asthma. Specific prânâyâma and âsana practices are described. The recommended practices will help students with asthma develop a new awareness of how physical posture and breathing techniques can minimize the frequency and severity of asthma episodes.
