Are you a COVID long-hauler with lingering respiratory symptoms? Have you been diagnosed with post-acute COVID syndrome? According to a team of doctors and scientists at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, breathing might just be the game-changer in the rehabilitation process.
In Yoga, breath work is known as Pranayama. Prana, means life force; yama, means restraint or control. The practice of breath control in Yoga is usually practiced at the beginning and/or end of the asana (movement) practice. It can, however, be its own effort.
Breath work is fundamental in Yoga and cited countless times in ancient texts like the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
