4 Light on Yoga – Curative Asanas for Asthma
“After working for 25 years as a teacher, I am giving groups of asanas for different functional and organic ailments and diseases, based on experiences with my pupils.
I have listed a number of asanas under each complaint , so it is advisable to seek the guidance of an experienced teacher and to adopt them according to one`s ability , suppleness of body and constitution. When practicing asanas it is important to use common sense and to watch the reactions of your body, thereby judging the time that you stay in them.”
