Sleep apnea is a result of blocked nasal and throat airways and can happen a couple of times a night to hundreds of times a night. Sleep apnea is essentially an advanced form of snoring. Although snoring can be bothersome, sleep apnea can possibly endanger someone’s life. It’s estimated that those who suffer from sleep apnea lose about a third of sleep every night, and their tossing and turning, loud snoring, and even choking can affect their partner’s night of sleep, as well.
As we know, losing sleep can lead to a plethora of other problems including headaches, high blood pressure, weight gain, and even heart disease.
Yoga can help to reduce the symptoms of sleep apnea because yoga breathing exercises help to strengthen, tone, and open the upper airway muscles, and can significantly reduce stress and calm the mind, which can lead to better overall life quality.
