How to Help Your Kids To Boost their Immune System

Leave a Comment


Did You Know your child’s imagination can boost their immunity? Many people say about how on earth could that work an imagination can boost your immune system?

A study was done by rainbow Children's Hospital in Cleveland

It absolutely can, so many years ago the Rainbow Children's Hospital in Cleveland took a group of children and they just took a swab of their cheek and they were testing their immunoglobulin levels this is a protein that fights infection and then they are surtout and watch a puppet show so the policeman puppet starts to fight the germ pop it here's a germ.

Here's a policeman the policeman hid the germ and killed the germ and the Children simply watched this show and then they asked him to close their eyes and imagine the same fight was going on in their body that the policeman puppet was killing all the germs took a few minutes to imagine that and then they swapped them again and their levels of immunoglobulin is gone up so high they realized straight where their bodies were reacting as if the cells really were fighting germs.

Their bodies had raised the level of protein that fights germs significantly just by thinking about it.

That's a great study we all love that and I decided I wanted to do that especially now we're in a situation with a virus, children are scared parents are scared they're scared for their grandparents and people say you know there's no vaccine.
 What can we do with this something you can do there are many ways of improving your immune system but thoughts are things when you think a thought you get a real reaction that's what if you think about blushing you blush that's why you think about eating your stomach rumbles and your children have an amazing imagination more powerful than yours.

I want you to play this game for your children because as they play it and think about it what's happening is it is really happening in their body as they imagine there be cells which are the cells that find a virus and kill it before an infection can begin.

If the children imagine their general is going out looking for a German or virus the troops coming along and killing it and then the clean-up crew coming along and cleaning up that is exactly what happens in the body thoughts are things and I want you I invite you to let your children play this game their imagination and sing the song and an even better I would love it if they would sing the song with their grandparents.

Play the game with their grandparents sitting next to them they can play it together because children have an amazing imagination their mind affects their body our bodies are actually run by a network of the intelligence which is completely influenced by our mind and this game and this song goes into that network of intelligence it influences your mind to influence your body.

We've made this very simple for children, it's incredibly fun and I'd love it if your children played it with you with their aunts their uncles their friends their brothers and sisters they even their school teachers because we can all help there is something we can do build our immune system.

Think ourselves well play this with your children encourage them to play with you it's just an imaginary game that takes five minutes a song that takes a minute and a half it's so simple but just because the song is simple in the game is simple that doesn't mean the results aren't profound and powerful and transformation I've done this the years with children with allergies and skin conditions and illness but now because of this virus while we're waiting for a vaccine we have a placebo that lives inside of us that can help us get well and stay well.

 You can help your children and they can help you here it is it's completely free to take it does wellness and gets your whole family your whole neighborhood to do wellness to I'm going to tell you a story about your magical mind your magical body and the most magical thing about you of all which is your magical imagination four kids have an amazing imagination and your imagination just means that when you think of something your body makes it real.

That's why when you think of eating yummy food sometimes your tummy rumbles it's why when you can watch a really scary film or even read a scary story even though you know it's just happening in your imagination here you can feel kind of scared and that's because when you think of something your body makes it real.

Now when you think about your body killing germs that's the coolest thing of all because as you think about your body killing germs your body will start to kill germs so right now we're going to play a game and in the game, you're going to imagine your brilliant body and your brilliant imagination killing germs you know what's going to happen your the body is going to start to kill germs.

 So to play the game really well and to use your imagination really well just close your eyes because your imagination works so much better with your eyes shut you can peek them open if you want to but it's more fun with your eyes closed to close your eyes close your eyes right now I want you to imagine you're holding your game controller in your the hand you can even feel it and you can see all the little buttons you're about to press or push.

 I want you to see on this controller is your body only you can look right through your bodies like you've got x-ray vision today you can look right through your body and you can see your blood and I want you to look into your blood because there are all kinds of amazing things going on in your blood you know if you looked through a river you wouldn't just see water you see fish and stones and plants if you look through the sea you can see fish and showers right now look at your blood and you can see an army in your blood because there is an army in your blood.

There's an army of amazing sows and the army of the South in your blood looks a bit like jellyfish and there are three different types of cells they're the generals and the generals' patrol your blood all day long looking for germs and then the troops come along and they kill those germs and then the clean-up crew come along and they sweep everything away so I want you to imagine right now you're looking in your blood that's it look in your blood and look at all those sounds and you can see those sounds and you can see them like little jellyfish-like little dolphins moving through your blood patrolling through your blood looking for germs and doing an amazing job for you and you can divide these cells into three you can see the generals they're like the James Bond.

 They're the spies they have x-ray vision goggles and night search goggles and they look for germs and they find them even when they're hiding and then the general cells they call for the troop cells the army cells and they come pouring out into your blood and they kill every germ they gobble them up they munch them up they fight them.

 They always win and then the clean-up crew come along and they sweep everything clean and they do something amazing they leave behind something called antibodies and antibodies mean you can't get sick from that germ ever again but even better because your troops fight the germ early they fight it before it can even ever make you ill so that's so cool you have a brilliant body and you've got this army in your blood the generals that find germs the troops that kill them before you can even get ill the clean-up the crew that clean everything up and the antibodies that protect you.

So now we're going to play this game and it is a great game we're going to play the game and you are going to win this game of making your body healthy and well and I want you first of all to pick your own troops because that's the funniest part of this game.

They can't hide from these generals they are finding them with searchlights locking onto them they lock onto any vine with their special vision and now your generals are calling for the troops and thousands of troops troop like sails are swimming into your blood going straight to the germ straight to the virus you're blasting of thousands and thousands of troops really exciting troops elite troops special Troops special squads like Packman and they are going straight to the germs and they surround them and they're eating them up right now they're gobbling them out.

They're munching them up chewing them up devouring them before they could even try to make you ill that's what's happening now watch your troops and help your troops watch them firing lasers at the germs using swords to kill the germs and your troops are so powerful.

Your troops are passionate and fast and strong and motivated and you have way more truths than germs and you can call for more troops and more troops and more troops and you are outnumbering every germ your troops are outnumbering every germ.

They're like Robocop they're bigger and stronger your dolphin squadron are chewing up the germs munching up the germs ending germs your Minecraft or Fortnite crew are on a mission blasting the germs away blasting away every germ winning you have so many truths and the germs are all being outnumbered and the germs being defeated right.

Now and now here comes your clean-up crew and your clean-up crew remember everything about those germs and they make special antibodies right now they're making antibodies your clean-up squad is and making antibodies even as you think about it and now when you make those antibodies it's so cool because you are getting a better and better feel.

Breathing For Covid 19 Coronavirus

Leave a Comment
Breathing For Covid 19

In this article, we will talk about about 3 lessons on breathing that we can derive for healthy individuals from a patient that have a coronavirus infection and the research that has been done on these cases.
Study 1
It is worth reminding people that the way that coronavirus kills is by causing Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) which is not specific only to coronavirus and it's basically an inflammatory state of the lungs.

It's an inflammation that takes place in the entire lungs and more specifically in the alveoli where there is fluid accumulating, there is also proteins that pass inside the alveoli and basically, this inflammatory condition compromises the oxygenation of the blood.

Patients that have ARDS are taken to intensive care unit where they are supported with ventilators that pump oxygen inside their lungs.

Let's look at the first study I want to bring your attention to, it was done in 2000 and it was done in individuals that were suffering from ARDS and the problem that they were facing is that the ventilators were pumping oxygen very forcefully and extracting the carbon dioxide with a big enough force that was causing shear stress.

Shear stress is the collapse of the cells, in this case, the alveoli causing higher levels of inflammation than what the patients had already the solution to the problem was found when they reduce the Tidal Volume (TV).
So, they reduced the amount of air that the patients were receiving and extracting air from their lungs.

This caused an almost 9% improvement in mortality rates. This reduction of Tidal Volume was not only seen in this study but in many other studies, they have tested this technique.

Why is that important for healthy individuals? Those familiar with the Buteyko method are already aware of the importance of light breathing keeping the Tidal Volume low. There is this epidemic of people thinking that heavy breathing such as ... is good breathing.
They call it deep breathing but the reality is that this is forceful; so, it is light breathing that we want to be practicing in order to improve our breathing and our respiratory capacity.

There are many breathing exercises that facilitate that. I would almost argue that the majority of yogic breathing facilitates light breathing but it's not just yogic breathing techniques that achieve that.

Study 2
Moving on to the 2nd study which was conducted in 2013 and it was again in subjects that had ARDS. So, in this study they had two groups, one group was let in a supine position while the second group was put for 73% of their time in a pronated position and what they found is that those that were put in a pronated position we're having 16% levels of mortality in the compulsion to 32.8% in the group that was all the time in a supine position.
The ones that spent time in pronated position were also having better chances of staying alive after the treatment. So how is that relevant for healthy individuals?
The reason why the ones that were in pronated position had a much better lung function was because of the negative pressure that was reduced in their cases. So basically, their lungs were restricted, they could not expand as much as those that were in the supine position and this

facilitated better breathing. Now those of you that practice yoga is very familiar with holding positions that restrict breathing. A lot of forwarding bends a lot of twists a lot of sides flexion will put part or the entire lungs under pressure.
Practitioners that have been practicing for a while learning how to breathe comfortably in these positions. This is really what was shown in the studies, that was the benefit of people in a pronated position:
the fact that they were forced to breathe with the lungs under pressure. This can be done by lying on your belly, this can be done through yoga, or in a more elegant way if you want you can apply a belt around your ribcage; such as the Buteyko belt. Finally, the Nitric Oxide (NO) one of the three gases of the bloodstream which is produced primarily in the paranasal sinuses, so we are having good levels of it only when we are breathing from the nose and avoid mouth breathing, has been shown to have protective effects from a viral infection.
So this is a reminder for healthy individuals to breathe from the nose also it is important to know that the Breath Holds (BH) can increase the production of Nitric Oxide (NO) significantly so again this is something to consider although we have to be quite careful when we are speaking about patients because in some of the cases of people infected with coronavirus they can go into a hypoxic state so in their cases we have to be extra careful and not promote breathing techniques such as Breath Holds that potentially will drop their saturation of oxygen further.
Study 3:
Now a couple of days ago I received a comment which was asking whether specific breathing techniques that will alter the blood pH can be protective for the infection. I had a look in the literature and I didn't see any evidence specific for the coronavirus, however, I found that it is quite common in many viral infections to be accompanied by a drop in pH in the area that surrounds the cells, that are infected.

However, this in my opinion is not enough evidence to practice breathing techniques that are making the blood more alkaline.
So as a quick reminder the three lessons that healthy individuals can derive from the research done in corona the virus is that low Tidal Volume is something worth practicing, Nitric Oxide production can be protective potentially for infections and finally the biomechanics of breathing do matter and learn how to breathe in different postures can facilitate good breathing long term. In my YouTube channel, there are plenty of other videos which I invite you to explore breathing theory as well as another category of videos where I'm reviewing breathing techniques.

I hope you liked reading this post if you are still awake :D a small share will be greatly appreciated.

Top 8 Ujjayi Pranayama Benefits!

Leave a Comment
Ujjayi Pranayama And Its Benefits

Come, Let's us do the Ujjayi Pranayama. There are two types of Ujjayi. Let us do the first one In Ujjayi we do Moolband, Uddiyan band & jalandharband

Moolband, Uddiyan band & Jalandhar band

Be careful with one thing

The air should not go below your throat

That is Ujjayi Pranayama what will happen with this

That means our chest get clear, means what all dirt we have that gone. This was actually done by You must have seen at the time of mediation, Hermits, sage, Fakir & Aghori those who use to consumption of alcohol or smoking So, for those people this Ujjayi pranayama was very effective.

They use to do this in the forests, so with this their lungs were clear.

And what more benefits are there, indeed our throat gets melodious and Secondly the Peeha and Mandadidni such types of disease, Rakta dosh which is called bone marrow get clarity with this so these are benefits of Ujjayi. But do not do this more than 5 times but if the air got stuck in your chest or you are mistaken anywhere then immediately death can happen and there is no doubt about it.

So, this I am telling you but you should not do without the supervision of master Is has benefits and that benefits can take you to rise level

Once again see, Moolband means pull your Anus to upwards

Uddiyan band means to stretch the stomach to inside

And this is Jalandhar Band in this we have to stretch.

and the recheck which we have to do, that I have just now told you. This also has to exhale steadily and calmly with moolband, uddiyan band. Once again have a look Moolband, Uddiyan band & jalandharband

with so much of patience, so that was Ujjayi

So, come now will come to its second part

In this no process of Purak, Rechak & Kumbhak rest of the process is same. Moolband, Uddiyan band & jalandharband so that way Ujjayi, So I have told you that what are the benefits with Ujjayi but you have to be careful, maybe it is Ujjayi's first of second part.

Because whatever we got the lock, Moolband means locking the Anus That was Manipur,

what happens with this Band? (Lock) let me tell you some outer changes like hairs turning gray, wrinkles on the face.

So with this band, these all get vanished.

If we do all three band and along with Ujjayyi then you will always remain young and we will get sway and spring in our body.so that was Ujjayi Pranayama.

You can use to relax your mind and reduce the mental chatter so find a position where you are comfortable and your spine is straight so that the energy can move up and down the spine freely you can sit on the floor cross-legged or sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor

and your palms facing upward you can also use a pillow as support behind your back

if it's difficult to sit then lay down flat on your back with the towel or pillow under your knees but just be careful not to fall asleep during this breathing exercise in all these positions let your palms face upward this breathing technique is called ocean breath because the sound resembles the distant rolling of the ocean follow along the instructions inhale deeply through your nose and when you exhale open your mouth and pretend that you are fogging a mirror with your breath hear the sound inhale deeply and then fold the mirror as you exhale now inhale but close your mouth while you continue to fog the mirror as you exhale

notice how you can make the same sound with your mouth closed

the inhales and exhales our long deep and slow keep the breath smooth by connecting the inhales and the exhales and now let's practice this breathing technique for six minutes close your eyes inhale through your nose and then for the mirror as you exhale inhale through your nose for the mirror as you exhale follow along your breath inhale through your nose and then for the mirror as

inhale through your nose and then for the mirror as you exhale

inhale through your nose

and then of all the mirror as you exhale inhale through your nose and then for the mirror as you exhale

inhale through your nose

and then for the mirror as you exhale inhale through your nose and then for the mirror as you exhale

inhale through your nose

and then fought the mirror as you exhale inhale through your nose and then fought the mirror as you exhale

inhale through your nose

and then for the mirror as you exhale inhale through your nose and then for the middle as you exhale

inhale through your nose

and then for the mirror as you exhale inhale through your nose and then for the mirror as you exhale

gently as we come to the end of this meditation practice

open your eyes whenever you feel ready.

Ujjayi Pranayama Benefits

1. Improves focus on physical activity. It connects breathing movements and helps focus the mind and keeps your awareness current; Joining. Ujjayi allows us to continue for a longer period of time.

2. It incorporates endurance and builds strength that enhances the flow of practice by borrowing meditation quality that maintains the rhythm of the class.

3. Stimulates Nadis (energy channels in the body) brings mental clarity and focus. Reduce distractions and allow the person to be aware of and independent of the practice.

4. The air control regulates body temperature. A collision of air passing through the lungs and throat removes internal body heat. It is similar to internal organs; as the foundation warms up inside, the body is ready for the asana practice. This heat makes stretching safer while the internal organs can be cleansed of any accumulated toxins.

5. Ujjayi's direct breathing can relieve tension in tight body areas and promote free prana movement

6. Ujjayi measures the Cardio-respiratory System which helps to carry oxygen to your muscles and tendons and remove waste. It promotes a reduction in pain from headaches, relief from sinus pressure, decreased phlegm, and strengthening of the nervous system and digestion. Ujjayi Increases the amount of oxygen in the blood and regulates blood pressure.

7. Ujjayi tells us when we need to give a state of rest because the air must stay as smooth in the lungs as when we rest. It allows us to be honest in our habits, to take a step back to stop our ego. If you listen, your spirit can be your true teacher, guiding you in many ways. Ancient yogis saw a close connection between breathing and the mind.

8. Ujjayi allows us to practice full breathing during exercise challenges. Therefore, we can live a balanced life in the face of the pressures of everyday life.

So That's It! I hope you liked reading this post if you are still awake :D Please share with your loved ones and bring the change into their lives.


Top 14 Benefits Of Kapalbhati Pranayam

Leave a Comment
kapalbhati pranayam benefits

Today I will explain, what are the benefits of Kapalbhati Pranayam and How to perform it.

So, come and learn with me!

Friends, you have to sit in crossed legs position.

You need to keep you back straight.

Your shoulders should be straight.

For doing Kapalbhati Pranayam, you need to exhale from the nose with some pressure.

You should do this on some Yoga Mat.

Because it is not advisable to do it directly on the floor.

You don't need to take your tummy forcefully in, instead, when you will exhale with some pressure, your tummy will automatically go in.

At the beginning of this pranayama, you must not do it fast. You should do it very slowly.

in fact, it has been seen in many different cases that those who does this pranayama, their clogged arteries got opened?

These people should not do this pranayama.

Hypertension people should do this after the permission of the doctor.

if you have High Bp then you should do it very slowly.

and you should do this under the guidance of some Yoga Practioner.

if you have undergone some surgery then you should wait until you recover.

So, these were the general things which you should keep in mind before doing this.

Always do it in the fresh air and in the morning empty stomach.

if you want to do it after food then you should wait for minimum of 5 hours before doing this.

you should not eat anything for next 30minutes after doing this.

How Much Yoga You Should Do?

Now we will talk about

is it necessary to do Yoga daily?

do we have to do Yoga daily?

or if you skip it someday that too is fine

see some people say do Yoga for 5 days a week it's fine

it's enough

you must take rest for a day or two in between only those a person should take rest

those who treat Yoga as the burden

let me give you an example

what will happen if you skip doing Yoga many people ask

it will be like not brushing your teeth for a day it will be like not taking a bath for a day

you don't feel fresh if you don't brush your teeth although there will be many who don't do it that's different

but in reality

unless we brush our teeth, we don't feel fresh same is the case for Yoga

Yoga doesn't mean you will need rest

someday we will do rapid and heavy Yoga if we are not feeling well, we do only pranayama

if we feel good that day, we meditate too

all these are after all Yoga

How can you say that do it only for 5 days and skip the rest?

I am not criticizing anyone

but those who have learned Yoga from his Guru

they won't say like this

those who have done some course in school or tuition or Yoga studio

such people will say such things

that 5 days a week Yoga is sufficient yes, it is sufficient

but we just don't do Yoga for our body

we do it for our soul, our body, our life force for purifying all these we do it

So my answer to the question about should we do Yoga every day or not is this

How much will it affect us? it will affect only that much how it will affect if we don't brush for a day

I hope you understood my indication

We tell our children to brush twice a day daily

So, I will tell you it's my right to tell you to do Yoga daily

Maybe you can change the flow or style

Someday you do more Asanas (postures)

Someday you do Pranayama

Someday you add Yoga Nidra to it

Someday you add meditation to it

Someday you may do more Surya Namaskar

You can shuffle it

Do something regularly

Some people like doing Surya Namaskar daily

So, keep a few things which you will do regularly and shuffle other things as per your wish

and your mind will also be happy and one more very nice thing is

in our tradition is continuity the flow of river Ganga is continuous everyday Sun continuously rises and sets

and many other things are continuous

seasonal changes are continuous

Everyday continuously we hear the chirping of birds

We transform our lives using Yoga.

Yoga is not limited to bodily fitness.

That's why to understand this

how important is doing Yoga?

That's all for today,

If you have any questions then kindly comment in the comment the section down below.

I will try to help you guys.


Top 10 Bhastrika Pranayama Benefits

Leave a Comment

Bhastrika Paranayama and Benefits

Bhastrika Pranayama:

Bhastrika Pranayam is also called Bellows Breath, a sound like a blacksmith bellows is produced In this breath yoga. Baba Ramdev the Yoga Guru, says that Bhastrika pranayama is done first on breath yoga series.
Today I will explain and share another breathing practice another pranayama which is called Bhastrika pranayama.
The benefits of Bhastrika is amazing because it works directly on your energy channels, the Nadis.
Every breath, every exhalation you take every time, energetically speaking, there is an opening, a clearing, an opening and clearing, and; as you know all the Chakras, all the energy centers, they are in front.
They're in front of the being.
So as you do this practice, you can also visualize all these energy channels connected with all your energy centers, vortexes opening and expanding, and clearing any old energies from all the chakras in front.
From the base up to your sacral, up to the solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown upwards.
So there is this opening, opening and clearing and opening.
So as you do this practice, you can connect with that.
Clearing and opening your energy channels.
I will demonstrate to you how bhastrika works:
we would place your hands towards your upper shoulders here.
There is a silent inhalation and focusing on exhalation.
You're using your arms and dropping them to the backside of your lungs, allowing that extra kick of that oxygen out of the body.
As you do this practice, imagining and visualizing and even feeling, if you are quite energetic, there is this opening taking place right in front of you all the older energies you are holding.
So this practice also allows us to prepare with more opening for higher energy to come through.
Because higher energy can come true when we create the space for it.
So that's the beauty of this practice and I highly recommend if this practice is new, to start off with 30
- you can pause -
another 30 and pause another 30.
Every time after every set, always take a few moments - to feel the effects of every practice
because this is how you will learn the effects directly; how the energy is working inside of you.
Now this practice Bhastrika, it can deepen with other practices, too so the next part of this practice would be to hold the breath and to connect and energize yourself with prana with life force energy.
So we clear the pathways the energy channels and centers and then we connect with the life force energy.
So here, a beautiful way how to do this is by visualizing the Sun.
Connecting, withdrawing with the Sun. As you would draw the Sun, you could also
visualize a golden yellow light.
This is the highest superfood your whole body and being can ever eat.
So this life force energy permeates and comes trough into every cell of your being.
That means into every organ re-energizing rejuvenating clearing the old energies.
So this works right down to the core.
A few words to share with you about stagnant energy
- because most of the time we are not so much aware of how
important it is to work directly with our energy system - because when we don't work with energy the Energy's become stale and stagnant and that causes 90 percent of all disease that one human being experiences within his physical body.
So when you reverse that, you come to see the root cause of all, nearly all forms of the disease.
The reason for that is because of an energy stagnation.
So this practice is like a natural medicine that you can take on every day. You can build up the practice.
You can start with 30 and then add more to it as you get more familiar and more comfortable with the practice.
So I will now come to the second part where we energize with lifeforce energy.
I will repeat from the first part of bhastrika into the second part, where we withdraw
the lifeforce energy.
So as I just demonstrated that the second part you are energizing just like a battery. You become a battery.
To receive and charge up your whole being with that life force rejuvenated energy of the Sun.
You place your thumbs face each other and sometimes the hands will move accordingly
depending on the charge on the alignment of that.
So keep your hands soft and if they want to move slightly allow them to do that as you're in this position you are connecting with the Sun. You're withdrawing in the Sun, using this yellow golden light.
Bringing that light closer and closer within you, into every cell of your being.
Now I will share with you another part of this practice:
so after
energizing with lifeforce energy there's a third part which I implemented with this practice, which is about sublimation of energies.
So the third part that I will show you very shortly is with the second part then you inhale and you contract the perineum muscles, the solar plexus and there's also a third one here in the throat. So these in sanskrit are Mula bandha Udeana banda Jalandhara banda - the three locks of the spine.
So we engage these three locks of the spine and we sublime energies from the lower density of energy from the lower three chakras up at first to the heart and then further up if there is the capacity within you to do that. 
But at first to move those energies up to the heart and work with opening the heart center.
All the energies from the lower centers must be transcended up to the heart chakra.
So I will show you now the full sequence of this practice with the last part of the sublimation of energy.
And as you exhale you can exhale to the backside of the heart and up the backside through the neck towards your crown center.
So this is how you can complete this practice by exhaling into the heart and up the crown center and
then you can take a few moments to observe the effects of this practice. 
That is a completely amazing practice of first opening and clearing then energizing withdrawing lifeforce energy then subliming energies towards the heart and with the last part after releasing that sublimation rising up towards your crown.
Very well...

Pranayama - A Transformational breathwork Training!

Leave a Comment
Pranayama - A Transformational Breathing

There is a saying in yoga that without the breath, there is no yoga. Certainly, that reminds us that it's through breath training that we enter into a deeper aspect of our own lives and being. There are many benefits in doing that working with the breath is a healing process working with the breath makes us more sensitive to our internal, maybe states of being and working with the breath remind us that there is something living miraculously in our own beings that can be touched and voluntarily managed through breath awareness.

We are in the process of learning something about how yoga student Orient's themselves to breathing in basic yoga breathwork.

It's important to divide breath work into two parts:

  •  one part we might call breath training
  •  the second part we might call pranayama

these two aspects of breathwork complement one another but breath training serves as the foundation. Pranayama is the elaboration so an important step for every yoga student is to get started by working with the mechanics of their own breath how does a person breathe well, of course, this can be a kind of nervous making process if I think that I'm going to go in and examine my breath and perhaps even make adjustments to it.

 I might become more and more nervous about the whole idea and just leave it up to nature and not interfere but nature made the breath is a kind of doorway and that doorway is something that we can enter we can enter into our own selves through that breath awareness how the first step is simply to become aware of breathing the breath flows in and out.

Breath Training

it's not necessary to be aware of your breathing in a critical way but it is helpful to be aware of the breath in a way that allows you to access it as a means for working with yourself and that means becoming aware of breathing the two great streams of breath complement one another the exhalation cleanses the inhalation nourishes and so these two breaths one after the other again and again are constantly doing their work cleansing and then nourishing carrying away wastes and replenishing with fresh the energy I've sometimes thought about this wondering if these two small breaths can really ever get the job done


One exhalation and one inhalation takes just a number of seconds and yet we imagine that by breathing and becoming aware of the breath we do something remarkably helpful to ourselves there are a number of ways of thinking about it but one simple way is thinking about the amount of time, it takes to breathe.

If you examine your breath you'll find that you are breathing about 10 to 15 breaths in a minute those 10 or 15 breaths in a minute add up by the end of the day you breathed 21,000 times 21,000 breaths each cleansing and nourishing each emptying and filling the first stage in working with the breath and is simply to feel these two great processes within you and as you feel these two great breaths


They perform their function without you being required to do anything beyond that bringing awareness to breathing, however, does change it a bit it changes it because whenever we're aware of something we naturally begin to ask questions about it what is good breathing am I breathing well if I am breathing well or not so well what can I do


Change it and if I improve the quality of my breathing what benefits does it have one of the first stages to discover breathing is to recognize that improving the quality of breathing improves the quality of life and so after we have begun to sense the breath and become aware of it the next step is to learn just a little bit more about how to breathe

There is a muscle that muscle called the diaphragm lies beneath the lungs it's responsible for everyday breathing and when the diaphragm the muscle beneath the lung contracts it draws the thoracic cavity in the base of the lungs down when the muscle relaxes in turn it's drawn back up by the elasticity of the lungs and so the diaphragm contracts the lungs fill the diaphragm relaxes the lungs empty I can begin to feel that movement and


Particularly in breath training I'd like to do that in a reclining position lying on the floor either on your back or on your stomach so that you can feel these deep movements of the diaphragm within your own body after a certain period of training you'll become used to the idea that when the diaphragm contracts and the lungs fill the abdomen expands as well depending on your posture and this is where breathing breath training becomes a little bit more sophisticated depending on your posture.

You may also feel the expansion of your ribcage along the sides and even in the back so in the process of training your body to breathe you are simply learning to recognize the signs of good breathing and a good yoga teacher will help you recognize those signs without making for nervousness or discomfort but rather simply the feeling of the flow of the breath again and again in an unbroken relaxed stream.


One more step of course breath training takes time and over that time you'll have the opportunity to view your breath again and again but one further step is helpful and that further step is the idea that at the end of the inhalation the exhalation begins at the end of the exhalation the inhalation begins.

 There's a relaxed smooth the connection from breath to breath you'll begin to sense that you are really not a breather what you began thinking about was true all along your body breathes and as that breath flows on and in its smoothly is woven from breath to breath in the process, you'll discover that your mind relaxes.

So breath training is a process that leads from simple awareness of the breath to a relaxed sense of mechanics of breathing to a most remarkable thing your mind relaxing and being the observer of your own relaxed nervous system at that point you're then ready for pranayama most of us have some idea of what that pranayama consists of breathing practices like nadi shodhana

These are all styles of breathing alternate nostril breathing each of those has their own place to play in meditation practice in relaxation practices in the cleansing practices that rejuvenate us and give us the sense that our lungs are clean and healthy and most important practices that lead us to a relaxed inner concentration so breath training pranayama these complement one another one leads to the next.


So, finally, we go beyond the breath and discover that our journey was always about finding our self.
