Essential reading: Three breathing methods of yoga
The breathing of yoga advocates uses the entire lungs to breathe. The lungs resuscitate excess cosmic energy to the body, promote the heart’s blood circulation, and send energy to all parts of the body through the bloodstream.
It gently massages the tibia and the organs in the abdomen, enhances its function, fully relaxes the body and mind, and has obvious substitute benefits for human health.
Proper yoga practice must begin with breathing exercises, not with asanas.
There are several methods of correct yoga breathing: Chest breathing method: When slowly inhaling, inhale the gas into the upper area, the sternum and ribs are expanded, and the residual should be kept small.
As you inhale, your abdomen should tighten inward.
When exhaling, slowly remove the turbid air from the lungs, and the ribs and tibia return to their original positions.
Abdominal breathing method: When inhaling, slowly inhale the fresh air into the bottom of the lungs with the nose, transfer the deepening of the inhalation, the diaphragm between the upper and lower and the abdomen will descend, the internal organs will move downward,Will slowly rise like a balloon.
When exhaling, the abdomen is inwardly tightened towards the spine, and the diaphragm is raised naturally, completely exhausting the turbid air in the lungs, and the internal organs recover.
Complete breathing method: It is a correct and natural breathing that combines chest breathing and abdominal breathing.
When gently inhaling, first inhale the air to the bottom of the lungs, the abdominal area rises, and then the air fills the middle and upper parts of the lungs. At this time, the transition from abdominal breathing to chest breathing.
When you have inhaled to the maximum capacity of both lungs, you will notice that the abdominal wall and lower ribs are extended and only slightly moved.
Exhale, in the reverse order, first relax, then relax, then exhale, then intentionally tighten the abdominal muscles inward, and gently contract the lungs.
The entire breathing is a very smooth movement, like a wave that gently moves from the abdomen to the middle of the chest and then to the upper half of the chest, and then fades away.
After a period of asana with the correct breathing method, pay attention to the changes of your body and mind, and your body will tell you the true feelings.
