The importance of Healthy Lungs and immunity during pandemic
Kumbhaka Pranayama impacts the lungs immediately, which means, more air into the lungs as well as clearing of the lungs completely. With antara kumbhaka (lungs are filled with air (prana)) which help with better supply of oxygen to the rest of the body, and with bahya kumbhaka (lungs are completely empty – no free flow of prana) the lungs prepare themselves to take in more oxygen with the next inhalation, thus increasing their capacity. This also makes the lungs clean and clear, throwing the impure air out from the system.
