While scientists and researchers all over the world are working on finding a cure for the coronavirus, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has helped the country adopt a “multidimensional solution” to tackle COVID challenges.

Recently, on International Yoga Day, Modi took the ceremony online for the first time, to give a 15-minute address highlighting the power of yoga in boosting immunity, which will help patients defeat the coronavirus.

While discussing how yoga and pranayama help, he said, “The coronavirus specifically attacks the respiratory system and pranayama, or breathing exercise(s), help in strengthening the lungs. If our immunity is strong, it is of great help in defeating this disease. For boosting immunity, there are several methods [and asanas] in yoga, [that] increase the strength of the body [and boost our] metabolism.”

He also spread awareness about the variation techniques in pranayamas like Sheetali, Kapalbhati and Bhastrika, that the citizens could learn and implement in their daily practice to develop a strong immune system.

But he didn’t just stop at a speech; his talk was immediately followed by a live demonstration of Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) by experts of The Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga.

Read on to find out more about the Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) and how yoga is believed to help Coronavirus.
