Yogamudra has a curative and corrective effect for the asthmatics. The lungs and their bronchial branches are stimulated in a very effective way. The blood from the lower region begins to flow upwards and massages the veins of the lower bronchioles of the lungs. This helps restore the normal health of the lungs and their functioning. The internal organs of abdomen work efficiently as a result of its practice.It is beneficial in constipation and removes seminal weakness.
