Breathing easy in the Australian mining industry with Yoga

In spite of workplace health and safety practices, miners are exposed to sources of asthma on a daily basis. A University of Texas study* estimated the prevalence of asthma among working adults in the U.S. by industry and occupation and found that workers in mining (17%) have the highest prevalence of asthma. That may be true but individual members of the mining community can easily evaluate whether they are susceptible to asthma or not and, if yes, learn some basic breathing techniques to manage their condition.
