4. Improved respiration

The respiratory system is made up of the lungs, the bronchial tube, and nose, plus air passages such as the larynx, pharynx, and trachea. Apart from being able to speak, it also is responsible for supplying the body with oxygen and expelling the carbon dioxide from the body. The breathing practices in yoga promote relaxation and calmness, but it also builds up great respiratory stamina. From here it can help the management of allergens that affect the respiratory system. Stress can also affect the respiratory system. This is done only with practice though, and medical opinion is still advised when you have problems breathing or any allergic reaction.
