I’m a 73-year old man and I practice yoga daily. Can I continue yoga even if I have COPD?

It is generally safe to practice yoga even if one has COPD. However, one must consult the healthcare provider before continuing yoga or starting a new exercise. Certain yoga poses that restrict breathing, by putting pressure on the diaphragm, need to be avoided. One must keep inhaler and/or oxygen supply within reach, while practicing yoga.
