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.

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

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
