Learning how to breathe again

Due to mainly poor posture & the tension of modern lifestyles we have forgotten how to breathe correctly; hence we’ve formed many restrictive breathing habits in the process. These have of course led to many common ailments such as:

  • insomnia, indigestion, headache, chest pain, anxiety, panic / stress & anger issues.

Before learning classical pranayama, first we develop correct breathing methods & master these basic techniques; these practices alone can alter the entire physical & mental health.

Benefits of pranayama

Once comfortable with correct methods & yogic breathing, pranayama techniques can be gradually introduced. The benefits of such are:

  • rebalancing the nervous system / harmonizing the endocrine system
  • invigorating the immune system / increasing energy & vitality.

Additionally, mental clarity & increased levels of concentration are produced eventually leading to an expansion of one’s awareness.

At tattwavisionyoga we include many of the traditional Hatha Yoga Pranayama techniques:

  • beginners stages of abdominal & yogic breathing alongside Nadi Shodhana
  • Kapalbhati / Sheetkari / Bhramari / Ujjayi / Bhastrika / Surya & Chandra Bheda Pranayama

These pranayama techniques are mirrored on the original teachings of BSY (Bihar School of Yoga) & the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres.

Pranayama begins with the regulation of breath and ends in establishing full and perfect control over the life currents or vital inner forces. ”Swami Sivananda
