Yoga is an ancient practice of physical, mental, and spiritual discipline that originates from India. Early practitioners of this discipline believed it to be a way to attain permanent peace or “oneness” with the universe.

Today however, it has become synonymous with physical, mental and spiritual health. As a matter of fact, many turn to yoga as a natural supplement treatment for various conditions and illnesses.

Sleep apnea is one of the conditions which can be alleviated through the regular practice of yoga. This is done through the use of Pranayama.  This is one of basic yoga workouts that focuses on awareness and control of the breath. The term

‘Pranayama’/pra·na·ya·ma/ (prah″nah-yah´mah) is taken from Sanskrit. ‘Prana” translates to breath and the word literally means lengthening of breath or specifically extension of the life force’.

Pranayama can be done to reinforce the physical postures held while practicing yoga, or to improve meditation. Through the use of various sounds, rhythms, textures and patterns of breathing, the body and mind can become calm, stable and relaxed. At the same time it helps improve health and well-being. Pranayama is a channel for energizing and stimulating energy to increase oxygen exchange that is useful for physical healing.

How Yoga Breathing Helps Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea patients can benefit from this as Pranayama expands the body’s breathing capacity. It is allows for natural deep breathing that can increase the amount of oxygen that is taken in. Also, there is a possibility that Pranayama can help make breathing more regular, and reduce the number of breathing pauses experienced while sleeping.

Other than helping to develop better breathing habit for those with obstructive sleep apnea, regular yoga also helps to increase muscle tone and strengthen the muscles in the throat area. Better toned throat muscles will result in lessened blockage in the airways during sleep. At the same time, when used as a form of regular exercise yoga can help keep weight in check.

Lastly, as many know, yoga is also a relaxation technique that helps relieve stress and tension. The elimination of daily stress can help promote better sleep as anxiety is relieved.
