Yoga benefits COPD

Just 12 weeks of a yoga programme that incorporated postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), cleansing techniques, (kriyas), meditation, and a relaxation technique (shavasan), has been found to improve lung function, shortness of breath and inflammation in people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The Indian study was presented at CHEST 2013, the 79th annual meeting of the American College of Chest Physicians. http://www.chestnet.org/News/Press-Releases/2013/10/Yoga-Practice-Beneficial-to-Patients-With-COPD
