Yoga is considered to be very effective for asthma patients as it opens the lungs and helps them to breathe better. However, not all asanas are meant for asthma patients.

Dr. Ishwar V Basavaraddi, Director, Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga (MDNIY), Delhi says that detoxification kriyas like kunjal, jalneti and kapal Bhanti are very important for asthametic patienst and should be done before sunrise for best results. He also cautions that all kriyas and yoga asanas should be done under the guidance of a certified yoga trainer. According to Basaavaraddi best yoga asanas to manage the respiratory disease are:

Nadi Shodhan pranayama (Alternate Nostril Breathing technique)/Kapal Bhati/Ardha Matsyendrasana (Sitting Half Spinal Twist)/ Pavanamuktasana (Wind Relieving Pose)/Setu Bandhasana (Bridge Pose)/ Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)/ Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose)/Badhakonasana (Butterfly Pose)/ Poorvottanasana (Upward Plank Pose)/Shavasana (Corpse Pose)
