Combating COVID-19 with the Ancient Practice of Yoga

The coronavirus epidemic has spread its wings in India and the number of cases is increasing day by day. In this situation, people need to have immunity to fight this infection! Also, more than the public, Corona warriors, including doctors, nurses, medical staff, policemen and other employees are susceptible to infection.

This epidemic is the biggest challenge so far turning the whole world into a war zone. The impact of this epidemic is especially harmful for children, old people and those with low immunity. Currently, no medicine for this disease is available. We can save ourselves from this pandemic by practicing yoga and home remedies that should be included in your lifestyle. In such a situation, there are certain precautionary ways in which we can take care of ourselves.

I believe that if we do yoga correctly, it helps build immunity. Here, I would like to share some effective Yoga Asanas and pranayamas that will help everyone to fight this coronavirus if included in your daily routine.
