Pollution - Five Yoga poses to help you breathe better

Today, the pollution levels around us are harrowing. Although you alone can't bring down air pollution, you sure can build strong immunity to fight the ill-effects of pollution and reduce your chances of falling sick. We suggest you to stay hydrated, follow a healthy diet, and exercise regularly to stay protected. Here are five Yoga poses that can help you breathe better.

#1 Cobra pose

Cobra pose (Bhujangasana), by stretching muscles in the chest, abdomen, and shoulders, enhances breathing and lung function, thereby helping you fight effects of pollution.

To perform this pose, lie down on your stomach, with your hands under your shoulders.

Now, press down with your hands, and lift your upper body back, as far as possible.

Hold the pose for five breaths. Relax, then repeat.

#2 Bridge pose

To perform the Bridge pose, lie down on your back, with your arms next to your body, palms facing down.

Now, bend your knees and place your feet on floor.

Then, taking support of your shoulders, arms and feet, lift your back off the floor. Keep breathing slowly and deeply.

Maintain the posture for one minute. Relax, then repeat.

#3 Wind Relieving pose

Wind Relieving pose or Pawanmuktasana regulates your breathing and improves lung function.

To perform this pose, lie down flat on your back.

Cling your legs, fold your knees, and hug them. Now, lift your head off the floor and put your nose between the knees.

Hold the pose for a few seconds as you breathe deeply, then release.

Perform a few repetitions.

#4 Easy pose

Easy pose (Sukhasana) helps you concentrate on your breathing, improves lung function, and also relaxes your mind.

To perform, start by sitting down on floor/mat, with your back straight, and legs crossed.

Now inhale deeply, and then exhale slowly, while focusing entirely on the breathing process.

Perform this pose for 5-10 minutes daily to knock off effects of air pollution.

#5 Corpse pose

Corpse pose, also called Shavasana, is one of the most relaxing asanas in Yoga. It is known to enhance your breathing process.

To perform, lie down straight on your back, with your arms freely opened on both sides, and palms facing upwards.

Stay in the position, and focus on your natural breathing rhythm, to stay safe from pollution.
