Your immune system is one of the most essential systems in your body. It is a system of organs, cells, and tissues that collaborate to fight infections and disease. It defends the body against pathogens, which include viruses (such as the flu), bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Your immune system is capable of rising to the occasion and fighting illness on its own. Consistently positive habits that contribute to excellent health, on the other hand, can be beneficial. Yoga strengthens the immune system by lowering stress hormones and training the lungs and respiratory tract, as well as encouraging the lymphatic system to remove toxins from the body. Depression, gastrointestinal issues, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, and asthma all seem to be made worse or better by stress. Yoga assists in the reduction of stress hormones and the relaxation of the neurological system, which is connected to the immune system. Colds and other diseases are caused by germs that harm the upper respiratory system.  The germs can reach the lungs and cause bronchitis or pneumonia if the immune system isn’t powerful enough to fight them off.  

One of the most essential strategies for maintaining the health of our respiratory system is yoga. Breathing exercises and yoga sitting on a regular basis help to condition the respiratory tract and improve lung efficiency. Our organs don’t get adequate blood flow as a result of desk employment and a sedentary lifestyle, resulting in blockages and toxic accumulation. This can lead to systemic failures in the body over time. Yoga activates the lymphatic system, which helps the body rid itself of toxins, when practiced on a regular basis. The numerous yoga poses guarantee that fresh blood is sent to various organs and glands, as well as gentle massage and stimulation. The increased supply of oxygenated blood to organs guarantees that they perform at their best.  

Joint and muscle discomfort does not seem to discriminate these days, regardless of age. A poor bone structure, a lack of physical activity, and a diet deficient in key nutrients can all worsen the issue. Yoga can help relieve pain by lubricating joints with synovial fluid and stabilizing muscles through strengthening movements. 

Yoga pose tips to boost immunity 

Bow Pose 

This posture gets its name from the form your body makes when you do it: a bow. 

  • Lie on your stomach with your feet hip width apart and your arms by your sides.  
  • Fold your knees, reach backwards with your hands, and grab your ankles.  
  • Inhale deeply, lift your torso off the ground, and bring your legs back and up. 
  • Look straight ahead with a grin on your face and maintain a solid stance with your body curled and tight as a bow. 
  • Relax and pay attention to your breathing by taking deep breaths.  
  • Bend to your convenience. 
  • Exhale and slowly lower your legs and torso to the ground after 20 seconds.  
  • Relax and release your ankles. 

Child’s Pose 

  • This relaxing posture, commonly known as Child’s Pose, can be used to break up more difficult poses.  
  • Sit with your knees together or apart, on your heels. 
  •  Exhale slowly and lean forward, dropping your forehead to the ground. Keep your arms parallel to your body and palms facing upward. 
  • Alternatively, extend your arms to the front of the mat, palms facing down on the mat. 
  • If your feet are apart, gently press your chest on the thighs or between the thighs. Hold the position for 45 to 1 minute. 
  •  Pull your navel towards your spine as you inhale. Soften your arms as you exhale. 

Cobra Pose 

  • Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) resembles a serpent with its hood up. It is a component of the Padma Sadhana and Surya Namaskar series of postures. As you inhale, pull your navel towards your spine. As you exhale, relax your body and arms. 
  • Lie down on your stomach, flat on the floor, with your toes flat on the ground and your forehead on the ground. 
  • Keeping your legs close together with your feet and heels lightly touching is a good idea. 
  • Place your palms behind your shoulders, elbows parallel and close to the torso. 
  • Curve your spine and straighten your arms by arching your back as much as possible. 
  •  Tilt your head back and up, but don’t overextend yourself. The feet should be within a few inches of one another. 
  • Exhale and slowly return your abdomen, chest, and head to the floor. 

Plough Pose 

  • The plow, a typical farming implement in Indian agriculture, is the inspiration for this yoga pose. 
  • Lay on your back, palms down, with your arms beside you. 
  • Lift your feet off the floor and elevate your legs vertically at a 90-degree angle as you inhale, using your core muscles. 
  • Continue inhaling and exhaling normally. Lift your hips and back off the ground with the help of your hands. 
  • Allow your legs to sweep in a 180-degree arc above your head until your toes contact the floor. 
  • The back should be parallel to the ground at all times. 
  • Allow your body to relax with each breath while you hold the position for a few seconds. As you exhale, slowly lower your legs after approximately a minute. 

Sitting pose 

  • This posture requires mobility of the abdominal muscles, particularly the diaphragm.  
  • Maintain a 1- to 1.5-foot space between your feet when standing.  
  • Bend your knees slightly. Bend the shoulders and neck to the front so that the body’s weight is transferred to the knees via the hands. 
  • This position relieves stress on the stomach and allows the muscles to relax.  
  • Inhale deeply and slowly exhale.  
  • Attempt to move the abdominal muscles to the inner side while breathing. Lift the ribcage and gently press the muscles inside upwards. 
  • The abdominal muscles may readily be pulled up if they are relaxed.
