Breath is an Ancient Art, proven by Science
Since ancient times, yogis have known that the way we breathe is essential to our wellbeing and health. Eastern adepts have long been aware of the rejuvenating power of prana – the life-force of creation. For centuries, they have used specific breathing practices to harness and direct this vital energy in order to facilitate healing and self-development. The power of conscious breathing has been used in the East as a vehicle for spiritual enlightenment for many centuries.
Our breath is our connection to life. Breath is life!
Most of us are not breathing to our full capacity-on average we use only 20% to 30 % of our respiratory systems and we are not getting the oxygen needed for our optimal health.We restrict our Breath and in doing so create physical, mental and emotional blockages.
The body needs between 1 cup to 2 gallons of oxygen per minute depending on whether engaged in a restful state or strenuous exercise.The brain needs 20% of the total amount of oxygen needed by the body. Almost 70% of detoxification occurs through our breath.
Lack of Oxygen is a major factor in the development of cancer and many other diseases.
In recent times, science has begun to back up what the ancient yogis have known for thousands of years-the oxygen is vital to our physical,emotional and mental health.Western researchers have discovered that altering the breath pattern can alter mental and emotional states.
We can consciously breathe and improve our lives dramatically.
Our breath is our dearest companion. This companion never loses sight of what emotion we are experiencing at any given moment of time. Think about it- how does it feel? Isn’t your breath really fast when you are angry? Isn’t it deep and smooth and mellow when you are calm? What happens when you are frightened? Do you hold your breath- just forget to breathe?
Breath is not only linked to the body but also to the mind. And we all want a happy and calm state of mind! A low level of Prana in the body can be a reason not only for many physical deseases,but also for increased feelings of anfxiety and stress.
This is where Pranayama and Breathwork can help.By paying attention to your breath through breathing practices, you can bring your mind to a healing state by enhancing and regulating the Prana-Life force in your system.You will fill the body with plenty of Prana, which makes you feel energetic and positive !
The breathing works on many different levels; for some people, the main experience is emotional.
