The short movie on yoga by Yoga instructor Seane Corn informs about the benefits of breathing, and the breathing methods that help in keeping the mind and body healthy. Yoga has been existing since ages and many people have benefitted using it in their daily lives. Breathing in Yoga does not only help keep a person physically healthy, but also helps in relaxing the mind and makes a person mentally healthy. The video shows the different types of breathing techniques which have a positive effect on the different parts of the body. Every part of the body benefits using the breathing techniques, which must be done regularly.
The major benefits of breathing as explained by Seane are that breathing helps in maintaining a sense of control, provide oxygen to the body, increases the blood circulation and respiration, helps keep the mind calm in trauma and conflicts. Deep breathing helps to rejuvenate the lungs and keeps them healthy. Detoxification and releases of toxic substances, relieving tension, relieving emotional problems, developing the immune system, improving the quality of the blood, increasing digestion and assimilation of food, making the heart stronger, and improving the nervous system are some of the best known benefits of breathing. These benefits can be achieved only when we use proper breathing techniques.
Pranayama can be done at any time in the day, however, I believe and practice pranayama before the sun rise as I am very active as soon as I get up. I have also practiced pranayama even before sleeping as it relaxes my mind and body and I get an undisturbed sleep. I have observed that we can control our breathing as long as we can, and it helps in rejuvenating the inner parts of the body. The other type of breathing exercise that I feel is good is the soother of the cooler, where the tongue is curled in the mouth and fresh air is inhaled and exhaled slowly where the exhalation is from the nose. This type of breathing exercise helps me in generating ideas and keeps my mind and body active. As mentioned by Seone in the video soother is very useful for women suffering with menopause problems. Soother also helps in the nervous system and keeps the person away from the nervous disorders.
In the fast moving generation it is difficult to find time for yoga and meditation, but I think it is very important to find time for yoga. I also observed that yoga has to be done in fresh air, for example with nature where there is lot of greenery, as there is fresh oxygen in the environment. The ambience assists a lot in yoga to get motivated and different types of yoga. It is good to wear comfortable clothing during as there are many moves that have to be done in yoga and wearing comfortable dresses helps in flexibility. I normally wear track pants and loose half shirts as I find it comfortable while flexing myself. Before I think of practicing pranayama I think a lot if I have to do it now or later, as it takes me some time to get into the mood of yoga, but once I start the yoga sessions I dedicate myself totally until completion.
As said breathing has always been advantageous and it helps in avoiding hospitals often because it keeps the inner and outer body healthy. I understand that the primary source of our energy level is generated from the lungs and breathing through nose always has its benefits over breathing from the mouth. Breathing can be developed by practicing more and the more I practice I think I can develop a passion from breathing and keep myself healthy. In all the breathing techniques shown by Seone, I think the soother is the best practice because, apart from being a rich practice and developing the nervous system, and helping in menopause problems, it also helps in reducing the body temperature, and provides positive effect on the endocrine glands and induces muscular relaxation. I understand that improper breathing diminished the mental ability and thinking capacity, and the consequence of improper breathing is true also. I am dedicated to breathing because I am aware that that mental tensions produce restricted breathing.
