Asthma Allergies and Respiratory Problems

When your breath is disturbed, your prana delivery system is disturbed, and that's a big deal. You don't want to mess with the life force! If you suffer from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems, you know how frustrating, let alone dangerous, breathing difficulties can be. Try the following to keep your breath flowing freely:

> Practice poses that open and stretch the chest: tree and warrior poses (Chapter 13, "What Do You Stand For?"); fish, bow, and cobra poses (Chapter 14). Be careful not to hold your breath while holding these poses.

> Two deep breaths while holding a pose are better than 10 shallow breaths.

> Eat a healthy diet!
