Because Yoga is specifically a way of managing and controlling your breath, it can be extremely effective for sufferers of asthma in reducing both the emotional impacts of asthma (fear and anxiety) as well as in alleviating the symptoms of an asthma attack (problems breathing) and in reducing the number of asthma attacks (by retraining the pulmonary/strengthening system). There are even specific breathing techniques that are useful for asthma as they specifically help exercise the lungs and regulate breathing.

Regular Yoga practice can help people with asthma relax and breath more easily, which then helps the lungs work better and enhances the airflow. Yoga does not relieve the underlying conditions that cause a person to have asthma, but it can be effective in reducing the symptoms of Asthma and in improving quality of live while reducing the frequency of attacks.

Because Yoga cultivates the ability to maintain a relaxed and controlled breath, it can prevent or reduce asthma attacks. There are different types of Pranayama (breathing) exercises for different type of asthma attacks (emotional versus mucus congestion versus breathing irregularity triggers). There have been several studies that validate the use of yoga for asthma patients, but yoga should be used in combination with, and not instead of, traditional medical care for asthma.

Yoga helps an asthma patient calm their mind. The stretching patterns,postures and forcuson breathing pattern tranquilizes the mind and frees it from anxiety, which is the chief cause of asthma attack to aggravate.

Yoga prevents an asthma attack to turn into a brochial attack at later stages, the latter being much more severe and untreatable. Brochial asthma is mainly caused due to pollution and smoking causing infection in the lungs and trachea.
