4 Yoga Asanas You Can Do Every Day to Boost Your Immunity

yoga asanas for immunity

Perhaps you may never have heard of immunity as much as you have in the Coronavirus outbreak. In the absence of a vaccine for COVID-19, the only defense you have against novel Coronavirus is your immune system.

In these times there’s a lot that being said about building the immunity.

Yoga for centuries is being used to keep your body, mind and soul in complete harmony. If practised regularly and with sincerity, yoga can improve your productivity at work, it helps in getting rid of toxins, recharges your body, reduces stress and general well-being.

Yoga also helps in building your body’s defence system and certain yoga poses, in particular, can help support and boost your immunity.

Here are 4 yoga poses that you can practice to boost your immunity.

Pranayama (Inhale-Exhale)

This is one of the basic yoga exercises that’s simple but effective. It helps you relax. Breathing deeply is useful in reducing stress, calming heart rate and distress, which all support strong immunity.  For Pranayama, all you have to do sit in a comfortable position, legs crossed or kneeling on the ground. Now take a deep breath, inhale as your lungs expand and exhale slowly. You can do this exercise for 5 to 10 minutes every day.

Uttanasana (Forward Bend)

This pose has many benefits for your mind and body. The forward fold or Uttanasana brings blood flow to the sinuses and helps in relieving congestion. It’s a simple pose that requires bending your body forward. As you begin bending forward, slightly bend your knees, relax your hips and rest your hands on the floor, if possible. If not, place them on the ankles or thighs. Stay in this position for 5-10 breaths.
