Model and entrepreneur Malaika Arora is back with another simple yet effective yoga routine. The 48-year-old model shared a breathing challenge on Sarva Yoga Studio’s Instagram page on Monday. In its recent Instagram Reel, Sarva Yoga Studio shared a deep breathing challenge that helps strengthen your diaphragm, an important muscle that enables you to breathe. Dressed in grey yoga pants and a matching sports bra, Malaika can be seen guiding the viewers for the challenge. To participate in the deep breathing challenge which checks your lung capacity, one has to sit in a comfortable position and inhale deeply and hold their breath for as long as they can and then exhale.
According to Healthline, our lung capacity is the total amount of air that our lungs can hold. Over time, our lung capacity and lung function typically decrease slowly as we age after our mid-20s. Reduction in lung capacity and functioning can speed up due to conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which leads to difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath.
