How to breathe and control your breath Is important:


The breathing exercise that we propose is simple and controls the constant practice of involuntary inhalation and breath through the understanding and regulating the process. It has a great beneficial effect on the physical and mental health.

In yoga, breathing is known as a rather integrating principle called the prana, a wide-reaching effects that can bridge the body, mind and spirit together in a harmony which is the basis of yoga and meditation. The practice of yoga is breathing after all seeking yoga breathing techniques to maximize this universal energy that exists inherently in all of us.

Those who practice yoga feel that this state of harmony is natural and there are many aspects of life that pull apart the internal harmony of our. The yoga breathing exercise is one of the basic fundamental techniques we can use to control and even eliminate the impact of external forces have on overall health and well-being.

Some basic guidelines to breathing techniques during exercise:

  • Get up early in the morning. Come out to the countryside and make sure you’re near an open window.
  • 
Sit with back straight. Keep your hands loose inside the basin you. Observe for a few minutes to breath and has stabilized the rate of take a deep breath very slowly. As the air enters pull your belly inward, outward raising your chest. The muscles of your stomach must be tense.
  • 
Hold the breath and count to five. Then exhale and gradually relax the abdominal muscles. If you have too tiring to hold your breath counting to five, count to three or less.
  • Take a full breath – inhalation, end – and then repeat the whole exercise.
  • Once familiar and master in this technique, you can try switching between the left and right nostrils.
  • Close alternating nostrils consecutively using the thumb and ring finger with the little finger of right hand, while the other two fingers should be folded. First inhale deeply through the left nostrils and exhale through the left. Too late. Make sure stomach muscles are turned on enough.
  • 
Then change the process – breathe in through the right and exhale through right. Repeat entire process for some time.



Yoga Breathing Techniques:

1. Breathing practice. First of all, it should be jurisdiction, time and motivation to improve our breathing through exercise. The yoga breathing techniques to help turn the main control of the minds and our bodies, but can only work if you commit to a disciplined program for a period of several months.
2. Understand the physiology of breathing. Much of advanced breathing techniques yoga breathing involves changing the speed and breath as well as controlling the depth of breathing exercises. The goal of yoga breathing (pranayama) is to facilitate the mind and heart and increase the oxygenation of the cells in your body – otherwise known as a process of breathing. To master the pranayama, the images in your mind the end of the toxicity and gas up and breathe, your mind is pure, clean oxygen your body.
3. Be aware of your body and breathing. The yoga breathing techniques emphasize the role of your body, of your abdomen, sides of your chest and your chest as well as your lungs breathing in the yoga. For example, when you practice deep breathing to the abdomen is a critical indicator to get enough breath to complete adequate oxygenation. Truly mastered the pranayama is only possible when you become aware of the pace of your breathing in any activity at any time of day.
4. Dining and inhalation and exhalation, focused almost entirely on inhalation, making sure getting a real deep breath, without any focus on how they let the air out of my body. In fact, the end is as important to the success of yoga breathing exercises. Focusing on a consistent, controlled version rather than a jerky, uncontrolled release.

Inhaling
Inhalation should be done gently and effortlessly. Prefer to breathe through the nose. Do not tense the nostrils; let them remain relaxed. It should all be done in a smooth, continuous rhythm with each part following smoothly on from the previous part. Avoid any jerky movements and undue strain.

  1. Slowly and gently push the stomach forwards as you breathe in.
  2. Push the ribs sideways while still breathing in. The stomach will automatically go inwards slightly.
  3. Lift the chest and collar-bone up while still breathing in.
  4. When it has been completed pause for a second or so, holding the breath (optional). Mind it is to be un-forced.

Exhaling

  1. Just allow the collar-bone, chest and ribs to relax-the air will go out automatically.
  2. When all the air seems to be out, push the stomach in very slightly to expel any remaining air in the lungs. The upper ribs are now contracted first.
  3. You may take a tiny (optional) not-forced pause here too, just as on top of the inhaling.

Diaphragmatic Breathing for Cancer Survivors

Diaphragmatic Breathing for Cancer Survivors

By: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff With Diaphragmatic Breathing By Jean Di Carlo Wagner: Owner of Yogabeing.net.
The diaphragmatic breath is the most calming and therapeutic breath. When constant stress leads to restriction of connective and muscular tissue in the chest area; a decrease in ROM (Range of Motion) is experienced. This decrease is due in part to unconscious shallow breathing. The chest does not expand as much as it would with slower and deeper breaths. Deeper diaphragmatic breathing is efficient because of the greater amounts of oxygen being drawn in the blood which then flows in the lower lobes of the lungs. Breathe Consciously. “It is as simple as oxygen helping to nourish the body, the muscles, and organs which then provides relief from stress, fear and anxiety. Slow, deep, and relaxed breaths calm the autonomic nervous system, producing balanced stable energy. Conscious breathing does improve the body’s immune function, and lower blood pressure. Make a conscious decision to start with 5 to 10 minutes a day of deep breathing. Watch video below and try diaphragmatic breathing.

A Few Words From Jean:
Learning to be with ourselves, lovingly and with compassion is a deep yoga practice. We check our breath, body, emotions, mind and spirit. We don’t change what is , we seek to know about ourselves and be present ‘here and now’. This practice is the basis of yogic meditation and mindfulness practices which can have been well researched to lower anxiety, add to send of control and well-being, empowerment and ultimately a change that comes without effort, but surrender.

4 Benefits of Breathing Exercises For Breast Cancer Treatment

Breathing For Breast CancerBy Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Breathing exercise program aides in breast cancer recovery along with other benefits that a person gets by practicing it. Make a conscious decision to start with 5 to 10 minutes a day of deep breathing. Along with daily breathing techniques we encourage an anti-cancer lifestyle. This is a lifestyle that includes a variety of exercise, organic foods, clean, pure water and air.

Benefits of Breathing:

1.) Stress reduction or increase energy.  Learning breath exercises will aide in the recovery process from breast cancer. First it is important to learn to breath correctly. Breathing correctly is done by taking in air deeply through the nostrils so that the lungs expand. Second, learn to use breath exercises so that they are used as treatments for specific situations, such as stress reduction or increase energy. Breathing exercises help you regain your health after under going cancer treatments by insuring that every cell in the body receives oxygen rich nutrients. Breathing exercises can also be used to steady anxiety, depression and other emotional distress.

2.) Help manage breast pain. There may be times during breast cancer recovery that the breath registers pain with a sudden and piercing inhale, punctuated with a forced exhale. When the breath remains affected by this sudden pain and discomfort it will trigger enormous changes in our ability to cope. Unfortunately, these are the consequences of impaired breathing brought on by stress. Once we bring an awareness to the breath, right into the moment of pain; when it is most needed, can we then decrease the degree of pain in the nerve receptors. This will increase the quality of life greatly. It is here where we learn to let go, soften and breath deeply.

3.) Assist in the ability to go to sleep and then to stay asleep. Doing a breath exercise such as Natural Breath in bed, will help decrease fatigue and promote better sleep. Here the mind will become focused on the inhalation and exhalation. This will create an inner calm by initiating the “relaxation response.”

4.) Maximize health and recovery through the breath. Constant stress leads to restriction of connective and muscular tissue in the chest area; a decrease in ROM (Range of Motion) is experienced. This decrease is due in part to unconscious shallow breathing. The chest does not expand as much as it would with slower and deeper breaths. Breathe consciously. It is as simple as oxygen helping to nourish the body, muscles, and organs which then provides relief from stress, fear and anxiety. Slow, deep, and relaxed breaths calms the autonomic nervous system, producing balanced stable energy.
