When faced with shortness of breath or a lack of energy, exercise may be difficult for individuals living with pulmonary hypertension. Yet, understanding how physical activity can help them, patients often ask Henry Ford Hospital pulmonologist, Rana Awdish to recommend safe, doable exercises. Combining her 20 years as a Yoga practitioner with her medical expertise, Dr. Awdish developed the first-of-its-kind Yoga program to meet the unique needs of PH patients, from the wheelchair bound to those with more physical stamina. The sequences are also appropriate for people with asthma, COPD and heart failure. The free video, Yoga for PH, now in several languages, is available to patients on DVD and online.
