We are respirating everyday effortlessly, but how effective is our breath? Are we breathing to the full capacity? Is our posture correct to allow full expansion of the chest for efficient breathing? The answer to all these is Pranayama.

We are doing everything that protects us from the deadly coronavirus; wearing masks, social distancing, sleeping well and eating healthy, homemade food.
