Sit or lie down in a comfortable position and inhale deeply through your nose, expanding your belly as you inhale. Hold your breath for a few seconds, then exhale slowly through your mouth, deflating your belly as you exhale.
  2. Downward Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana): This pose stretches the chest and opens up the lungs, helping to increase lung capacity. Start on your hands and knees, then lift your hips up and back, keeping your arms and legs straight. Spread your fingers wide and press your palms into the ground, lengthening your spine and keeping your head and neck relaxed.
  3. Fish Pose (Matsyasana): This pose helps to stretch the chest and improve lung function by opening up the ribcage. Lie on your back with your arms at your sides, palms facing down. Lift your chest up and arch your back, placing the top of your head on the ground. Press your elbows and forearms into the ground to lift your chest higher.
  4. Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana): This pose helps to strengthen the lungs and improve respiratory function by opening up the chest and increasing lung capacity. Lie on your stomach with your palms on the ground by your shoulders. Inhale and lift your chest off the ground, keeping your elbows close to your sides and your shoulders relaxed.
  5. Mountain Pose (Tadasana): This pose helps to improve posture and breathing techniques by promoting deep, diaphragmatic breathing. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your arms at your sides. Lengthen your spine and imagine lifting the crown of your head towards the ceiling. Take deep breaths, expanding your belly with each inhale and exhaling fully.
