Exercising with Asthma

Postby rackham18 on Tue Feb 17, 2015 7:01 pm

Hi all!

I am new to this site, so I hope people can help me!
I am nearly 22 years old and I have been a dancer since I was very young.

I have just been recently diagnosed with Asthma and my attacks or difficulties are brough on my execising, so I am finding it very difficult to maintain and its brough my fitness levels down. Has anybody got any advice on how I can maintain my syptoms and still build up dance training? I am very worried and don't want it to stop me but I dont want to do myself harm!

Hope I get some responses, thanks for reading :).

Yoga sounds like a great idea, for asthma & general health. What type of yoga do they do and how often?

I agree, Yoga is the great idea for controlling asthma as many peoples are getting control over their asthma by doing Yoga. Also, you can try some home based therapy like "Salt room therapy" using simple Halotherapy devices easy to get from stores like "salinetherapy". This therapy really proved helpful for getting control over the asthma.

Activities that involve short, intermittent periods of exertion, such as volleyball, gymnastics, baseball, and wrestling, are generally well tolerated by people with symptoms of asthma.
