Breath is vital to our very life, a birthright that allows us to function in the world as humans. As such, it is natural and uniquely experienced by each of us. We can learn strategies from yogic breath practices to enhance our breathing and our quality of life. Here are some benefits of yogic breathing:
Ancient yogis explored the energizing and healing aspects of certain breathing practices. In modern times, we can benefit from these ancient practices. In this series, will cover the basics of the yoga approach to breathing. We will also explore the Ujjayi technique.
Ujjayi Breath. A tool for lengthening and energizing breath, Ujjayi is used in several popular yoga traditions. It complements the slow movement and holding of postures found in some yoga practices. Once learned, its essence can be carried into daily activity to enhance quality of life. In fact, it is common for breath to become slower on a day-to-day basis, with healthy effects on heart rate, blood pressure, and overall sense of wellbeing.
