0 2 years ago

Covid-19 can impact your lung function and can make even the simple act of breathing naturally a struggle. Many people complain of breathlessness, decreased ability to exercise, dicomfort in breathing even after recovery from Covid-19. With improper breathing, all our body functions get affected and we are unable to release stress and anxiety the way we used to before.

Pranayama, the ancient practice of controlling your breath, is known to improve multiple aspects of physical health, including lung function, blood pressure, and brain function. Studies suggest that Pranayama also promotes relaxation and mindfulness.

“Breathing happens naturally without any effort, but if we have Covid, our respiratory organs get affected making it hard for us to breathe. During this time, we must make a conscious effort to practice simple Pranayama. When we do this in a focussed manner, it positively impacts each and every single organ, muscle and system in the body,” says renowned Yoga Guru Grand Master Akshar.

“When the body gets balanced; it also affects our thoughts, and will align our actions. This improves mood, reduces stress and helps in faster recovery. The work of the breath is to bring alignment, it also relaxes the body and makes us alert. We can regulate our healing and recovery process with the help of easy breathing exercises. This practice also can make us calm and controlled that eliminates panic, stress and worry,” he adds.
