Today it is very important to learn the correct breathing technique to inhale and exhale.All over the world everyone wants to breathe right. Breathing correctly helps us to get rid of chronic pain, constipation, and anxiety, insomnia and skin problems. The benefits of breathing right are both physical and emotional.
One of the methods of breathing right is Pranayama. Prana means respiration, life,strength,energy or wind. Ayama means expansion, length or restraint. Therefore, Pranayama means expansion of breath and its control. It is the science of breath.Prana should be brought under control very slowly according to one’s capacity.
The man’s life is not measured by the number of his days but by the number of his breaths.Therefore, he should follow proper rhythmic patterns of slow deep breathing. This kind of breathing strengthens the respiratory system, relaxes the nervous system and reduce craving. As the desires go away, the mind is set free and is ready for concentration. By breathing incorrectly, the person introduces wind, asthma, cough, pains in the head, ears and eyes and nervous irritation. Breathing too fast and shallow is an epidemic today. Sometimes the learner takes a long time in unlearning the short, tight unrhythmic breathing at the start of a yoga class. The complete practice of yoga is designed to expand the breath as it’s the exhale breath that will determine the fullness of the next inhaled breath. It takes a long time to learn proper deep, steady and slow breathing. Ran in the body of the individual is part of the cosmic breath of the Universal Spirit. A trial is made to harmonise the individual breath with the cosmic breath through the practice of pranayama.
The correct breathing reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, cholesterol and neutralizes the acidic effect in the body in few minutes. Your oxygen intake increases with every breathe. It energises you and put you to sleep better than any other sleeping pill. Breathing happens in the stomach and not in the nostril. Breathing exercises your diaphragm and increases your lung capacity. It increases blood flow to the brain and rejuvenates the whole well being of the human being. The deep rhythm of breathing can tell the mind to relax as the nervous system knows that it’s not reacting. It is the oneness of the breath and mind and so also of the senses and the abandonment of all conditions of existence and thought that is designated Yoga.
