The human body needs a regular supply of oxygen and blood in order to function effectively.

When you breathe, you also inhale a lot of impurities which is further purified by your lungs and transferred to your blood supply.

Needless to say, our lungs play a very important role to keep us healthy.

However, most often while working from home, we tend to slouch, follow unhealthy postures or do not pay attention to our breath.

"Slouching posture means lesser space for your lungs to expand," points out yoga and Ayurveda expert Namita Piparaiya.

In the video, Namita shares simple asanas you can try to improve your lung capacity and overall respiratory health.
