Cigarette smoking remains the single largest preventable cause of premature death and disease in many countries, including the US and Australia. It has been suggested that smokers are probably more likely to feel personally susceptible and therefore more likely to feel personally susceptible and therefore more likely to reduce smoking behavior, if they develop self-awareness of the impact of smoking. McIver et al examine the impact of a hatha yoga intervention on smoking behavior, predicting that yoga stretching and breath awareness practices focused on pulmonary health would promote a desire to stop smoking.
