Andrey Lobanov about the course
The situation with the coronavirus has once again shown the importance of prevention, responsibility for your health and ability to maintain it yourself.

If you’re drowning, you’re on your own, and the experience of countries with lots of infected people confirms it: hot lines are silent, doctors are overworking, it is almost impossible to get help.

Of course, it is better to study prevention methods in advance, and not when the epidemic has already begun, but maybe for someone the coronavirus will become an incentive and push to take care of their health.

It became an incentive for us to actively share our knowledge and experience gained over 44 years of work in the field of human health and development, and we decided to launch a series of training videos “Self-help Against Viral Infections: Prevention and Recovery”. I introduce you to simple methods of prevention and recovery, which help to increase immunity and vitality, avoid diseases or cope with them on your own.

The coronavirus will pass, but knowledge and skills will remain! They are always relevant and useful to you and your loved ones at the right time.
Lesson 1.
How to Protect Yourself During Pandemic

How to protect yourself from infection during epidemics? Simple and available prevention methods at the physical and psycho-energetic levels.


  1. Brief theory about the structure of a human as a multidimensional system;
  2. How to activate the mechanisms of self-regulation and self-healing?
  3. How fear, aggression, expectation of trouble and other negative conditions affect the body’s defenses?


1. Techniques to control your mind: creating inner support and releasing worry, anxious and negative thoughts;

2. Cleansing breath — a breathing exercise that is useful during respiratory infections and flu epidemics, after contact with infected patients and being in rooms with an unfavorable environment, as well as during the recovery period after illness.

Lesson 2.
Correct breathing – Healthy Lungs
and High Immunity

90% of people, including many yogis, do not know how to breathe correctly. Their pulmonary system works far from 100%, which means that the body doesn’t receive enough oxygen and other necessary substances, and this leads to a decrease in immunity, diseases and premature aging.

Second lesson includes the following topics:

  • How the pulmonary system functions. Stages of breathing;
  • Why is it healthy to breathe slowly?
  • How to control the emotional state and mind with breathing?
  • Diaphragmatic breathing. How to tell if you are breathing incorrectly?
  • Techniques to help you feel and learn to control the diaphragm;
  • Full yogic breath: combining diaphragmatic, thoracic and clavicular breathing into a single breathing act.
Lesson 3.
How to Improve the Respiratory System?

Resistance to viral and respiratory diseases is highly dependent on the health of the respiratory system. Doctor and yoga master Andrey Lobanov says, how to strengthen it with the help of simple and proven practices.

In the third lesson you see dynamic pranayamas, which are studied at the initial stage of the “Yoga LAM” system.

These breathing exercises:

  • strengthen and develop the respiratory muscles, help to learn how to manage it;
  • increase the body’s defenses;
  • cleanse the body of toxins, and the mind and psyche — of negative thoughts and states;
  • are a simple and effective means of preventing diseases of the respiratory system, cardiovascular system and metabolic disorders.
  • help to master the full yogic breath and other more complex pranayamas.

The video tutorial gives their external form and internal mental work.

Breathing exercises to increase immunity, strengthen lung tissue, chest and respiratory muscles, as well as free your mind and psyche from negative information, fears and anxiety are given in the 4th lesson of the course “Self-help Against Viral Infections: Prevention and Recovery” with doctor and yoga master Andrey Lobanov.
Lesson 5.
Kapakabhati Breathing – Pure Lungs and Clear Mind

Self-isolation may slow down the spread of coronavirus, but it is definitely not good for our immunity. Lack of movement and fresh air against the background of spring vitamin deficiency translates into a lack of energy and low vitality.

How to cope with physical inactivity and maintain immunity within the “four walls” when there are no conditions for physical activity — no equipment, necessary space, and others?
