Yoga may boost better breathing capacity, reports WebMD. Researchers from Khon Kaen University in Thailand found that after six weeks of hatha yoga practice three times a week, participants could expand their chest walls more and exhale faster. The comparison group experienced no change in breathing. Each yoga session lasted 20 minutes and featured five poses that engaged the chest muscles.
