Yoga not only increases range of motion, overall mobility, and boost bone health but also increases immunity in men. Here are some yoga asanas that may help.
The world is going through a strange phase. A pandemic has been raging for two years, with no end in sight. Millions of people around the world are suffering from the dreaded COVID-19 virus, with many losing their battle against the disease. Social interactions have become limited as more and more people isolate themselves with the hopes of leading a safer, illness-free life.
However, living in isolation does not guarantee a disease free life. Apart from COVID-19 a number of illnesses may strike an individual. At such times it is best to boost one's immune system by eating healthy, exercising and practising yogasanas.

Dietary and lifestyle changes may help strengthen one's natural defenses and help them fight harmful pathogens, or disease-causing organisms. Yoga poses can increase range of motion, overall mobility, and boost bone health as well.
According to a study by John Hopkins Medicine, yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. Furthermore, yoga helps people who are going through an illness, recovering from surgery, or living with chronic conditions faster.
Here’s looking at yoga asanas that can help men boost their immunity:
Wonderful for the nervous system and for combatting anxiety and depression, one has to begin by lying flat on the stomach and lifting the shoulders. Once in position, they have to extend the hands forward, bending at the elbows, and relaxing the glutes while lifting the neck. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.
Make sure you perform this asana 4-5 hours after having your main meal. It is best to do it in the early morning. Lie on your stomach, with feet apart and in line with hips. Fold your knees, take the hands backwards and hold your ankles. Breathe in, lift your chest off the ground and pull your legs up and towards the back. Stay in position while taking deep breaths for 15-20 seconds.
Lie flat on your stomach and stretch out your arms. Keep your knees straight and feet together. Inhale and lift your legs and arms up together. Lift your head up raising your chest off the floor as much as possible and hold for 10-15 seconds.
A bit more difficult to master, the Crow Pose will see you begin on all fours with your palms and knees on the ground. Place your elbows down aligned shoulder distance and spread your fingers and bring your knees to your triceps. Lean forward while shifting your body weight onto your triceps. Slowly lift both your feet off the ground and balance. Focus and hold position.
