According to a report in The Independent, UK, practicing yoga could help asthma sufferers breathe more easily. The Cochrane Review – an international healthcare non-profit organization – suggests yoga can improve the quality of life for people who suffer from asthma. The review used randomized trials, which found evidence yoga can improve the quality of life and symptoms of sufferers to some extent. It says yoga, as a holistic therapy, has the potential to relieve both the physical and psychological suffering and could reduce the medication a person takes to cope with asthma. Lead author Dr. Zuyao Yang, from the University of Hong Kong, said the findings suggested practicing yoga could lead to small improvements for those with the condition.
