Control of the breath is considered to be the key to a good yoga practice so it seems reasonable that yoga might be beneficial to someone with asthma. While perusing I found this video:

Of course, practicing yoga won’t cure asthma and it won’t eliminate the need for medications and inhalers but it may help one in living with asthma. A daily practice of the poses and breathing techniques described in the video will help to

  • Relax one’s breathing and open the chest and the lungs
  • Encourage short inhales and long exhales
  • feel more relaxed and more open

The sequence of poses in the video:

  • Tadasana (Mountain Pose)
  • Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)
  • Plank Pose
  • Makarasana (Crocodile Pose)
  • Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)
  • Balasana (Child’s Pose)
  • Savasaana (Corpse Pose)
