Yoga for people with Asthma?

Hi my lovely yogis!!! I have a very dear friend who has asthma, allergies, and all that lovely good stuff:(

She even has to have a gluten-free diet.  Her dream is to someday eat banana bread, and Belgium waffles again:-)

She just wrote me and said, "The wind is blowing, and my asthma is acting up.  I need some yoga moves to help with my breathing."

Do you have any asanas you recommend?



  1. I don't but you know what I hear are good for asthma? Chiguaguas. Yup, the dogs. Beats me why, something about them. Google?

  2. <-- here's a great post about it from a well established YT.

  3. The greatest pose for someone with asthma is pranayama and ujayi breathe. I was born with Asthma and was in the emergency rooms about 3 times a week. I really didn't have a childhood. I can relate to your friend very much. Nothing is permanent in this world, and if she takes good care of herself, her Asthma will disappear. Trust me! I've been there.
