This study tests the hypothesis that yoga breathing (pranayama) improves lung function in healthy volunteers during a 6-week protocol. A randomized controlled pilot study demonstrated an improvement in peak expiratory flow rate and forced expiratory volume. The easy-to-learn approach can be translated to the inpatient and outpatient settings.
