I also admire the sunrise and seeing the beautiful sunrise every day feels good. After sunrise the first thing Yoga I do is Pranayama and I also make sure to do Surya Namaskar. This is very good for health because our whole body is stretched and even the breathing pattern improves. Doing this you will get lots of strength because these asanas are done in plank position, mountain position and flaming positions. Doing this asana also makes our spine strong. In fact, our whole body from head to toe gets worked out every day”
“After that I do Pranayama, which includes normal breathing that is 21 times I do equal breathing. And then I do normal Pranayama this includes Bhastrika and Anuloma Pranayama. Working out this makes our immune system strong. This is also good in preventing coronavirus” added Archanaa.
Archanaa also added some tips about doing the Yoga correctly. She said, “We should listen to our bodies completely and should not go beyond our comfort zone. One good thing about Yoga is that if you twist your body only half, you will get the same results as you get in doing complete Yoga pose because everything is all controlled by breathing. To make strong our immune system we should do these breathing exercises. And this will also help in preventing coronavirus.”
