Nature has installed a meticulous filtration process in our Respiratory Passage. But, this meticulous installation seems to be rendered ineffectual due to the high pollution level especially in urban cities. The result has been life altering effects on the human body. Medical conditions which were considered hereditary in nature have made their way into the lives of younger individuals now. To grab this ‘bull’ by its horns and tackle it, one can start the process of cleansing one’s body from the most basic yet critical level – the breath.
Shwasan Marg Shuddhi, which can be interpreted as the ‘process of cleansing the passage of respiration’, is an energetic practice and can be equated with forceful sneezing. These components of ‘Energy’, ‘Force’ and ‘Sneeze’ work predominately at activating the abdominal and the respiratory organs. We have to use muscular force at the abdominal level to create the sneezing effect in the nasal passage. As a result, the abdominal region gets energized and hence deal with issues like sluggish blood flow to that area, indigestion, acidity etc. Not only that, continuous forceful expulsions tone up your core as well as stimulate abdominal breathing, a critical component in our overall wellbeing.
Respiratory problems like asthma, bronchitis, blocked nostrils, functional cold and cough, sleep apnea etc. can be easily kept at bay with Shwasan Marg Shuddhi.
A practice routine for you
Few rounds of practice in the morning before you start the day and a few rounds in the evening at close of the day will initiate the ‘ease of breathing’ and thereby ‘the ease of mind’. Also make it your first practice before proceeding into deep breathing as well as pranayama.
