Yogic Breathing Routine to Increase Lung Capacity & Calm the Mind
- 30 min30 minutes
Pranayama or Yogic Breathing is the ancient practice of controlling the breath, beneficial for physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Why Yogic Breathing? Through our breath we can release blockages in our thinking, feelings, and behaviour. When we feel worried or afraid, we hold our breath. This action takes away our vital life energy, and makes us feel exhausted and even more stressed. By breathing effectively and fully using the breath through yogic techniques, you will feel more energised, more relaxed, and a lot healthier. Who is this for? As many people feel the lack of self-discipline, especially in this very moment of transition in the world, I decided to share my yogic breathing routine online and support you in creating a routine, which will help for your overall well-being. You will find accountability and support in creating a healthy daily practice. What we will do? We will practice different techniques and Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breathing) as a foundation. Nadi Shodhana is a powerful breathing practice with wide range of benefits, and it is a great way to start your day. Nadi is a Sanskrit word meaning “channel” or “flow” and shodhana means “purification.” Nadi shodhana is aimed at clearing and purifying the main subtle channels of the body – ida and pingala, associated with the masculine (active/sun) and feminine (fluid/moon) energy. BENEFITS: * Infuses the body with oxygen * Supports clear and balanced respiratory channels * Clears and releases toxins * Reduces stress and anxiety * Calms and rejuvenates the nervous system * Helps to alleviate respiratory allergies that cause hay fever, sneezing, or wheezing * Fosters mental clarity and an alert mind * Enhances the ability to concentrate * Brings balance to the left and right hemispheres of the brain Allow yourself to practice self-care and bring a new element into your daily routine, which will help you with your physical, emotional and mental health.
