It is that extra volume of air inhaled and exhaled during yogic respiration, that works wonders in eliminating the toxins from the mind, the body and the soul allowing us to live a stress-free life and a life to the fullest. Generally, we inhale and exhale approximately half a liter of air at a time. But slow, long, deep & rhythmic breathing can increase this volume easily to an extra two liters. That’s it! We have a one-stop solution to most of our psycho-somatic problems. This is Yogic Breathing which eliminates stress from each pocket of your life.
Toxin elimination, at the mental level, happens with reduced chattering thoughts and increased subline calmness and stability. On the physical level, it cleanses the accumulated baggage in lungs and abdominal region by reaching deeply into it, pulling the toxic deposits and eliminating it out of the system with every exhalation, thereby, rejuvenating it with fresh oxygen rich inhalation.
Most of the people who are active are in sync with their breath but people with sedentary lifestyle are always at the risk of becoming shallow breather. This is a concern for all age groups given our modern lifestyle.
Yogic Breathing, even with a gradual progression can put a full stop to most of the stress which is the genesis of all prevailing lifestyle related ailments. The enclosed video is a detailed description of Yogic Breathing.
Follow it in steps for few days with each segment one at a time and then gradually combine it together. Once you are comfortable with the combination, move your focus on the inhalation and exhalation ratio. In no time, you will have the presence of mind to deal with each situation with a response than a reaction.
Trust me, the moment, you master this breathing, you will feel as if some ‘stored up heavy tension’ is getting dissipated from your mind, making you light and completely relaxed.
