I’m not asthmatic but this topic interests me because my elder son is. My son loves his cardio and team sports. He plays tennis. He’s an avid soccer player and swims. He also loves to dance and practices Karate, too. It’s heartbreaking to see his performance being limited by his asthma, especially in his younger years. He is now 7 and the asthmas seems to have progressively improved but during the winter months, especially during his sleep, the coughing spells occasionally makes their way back. Yoga isn’t something that my son likes to do at this point in his life but I’m certainly hoping to help his asthma by encouraging him to do 10-15 minutes of a tailored program like this in the coming season, especially as we enter into winter. I hope this piece is interesting and helpful to you. Feel free to leave me comments.
Research is inconclusive of the exact causes of asthma but shows family history, eczema, hay fever sufferers and babies exposed to tobacco smoke have a higher risk of developing or having asthma.
THE BENEFITS OF YOGA FOR THIS ISSUE (SYMPTOM CONTROL)
For the purposes of this project, we look into yoga therapy as a form of gentle exercise for asthmatics in light of the fact that more strenuous physical activity may bring on asthma attacks. Breath work techniques can help asthma sufferers learn to cope with episodes of attack.
