The Benefits of Conscious Breathing

Conscious breathing can improve your body function and performance. In addition, increase the quality of your sleep, and help with symptoms stress and much more.  In my own self-practice, I use a variety of breathing techniques such as; Ujjayi Pranayama, which is also known as the hissing breath, and Savitri Pranayama, which is rhythmic breathing. Combining the movements with this deep breathing brings about a feeling of steadiness. Therefore, this will have a grounding and balancing effect on your body while calming the thought waves of the mind. Giving you the ability to relax and to recover from stress more easily.

Deep slow steady breathing can bring about peace, calmness and keeps you centered. Connecting to a higher state of being.

Practice Breathing Using Your Diaphragm!

Diaphragmatic breathing will revitalize the body, steadies the emotions and creates mental clarity. When you breathe your stomach should be expanding, not just your chest. This allows your lungs to take in more oxygen. You can practice this in a comfortable seated position or by either lying on your back. If you lie on your back, put your hands on your stomach, legs bent, and take deep long breaths ( Do not strain to breathe). Inhale through your nose letting your stomach expand with each breath. As you breathe out through your mouth or nose your stomach should sink in. Your chest should hardly be moving.

Alternate Nostril Breathing

Alternate Nostril breathing exercises are lovely because they work in just a few minutes of practice. Furthermore, it helps release accumulated tension, fatigue and reduces stress. The breathing exercise is named Anulom Vilom pranayama as it helps clear out blocked energy channels in the body, which in turn calms the mind.

Developing Inner Peace

Inner peace always comes from within, it’s about calming the chatter of the mind, centering yourself and allowing your precious self the space to feel that calmness within quietness. Just having a clear, clean, space, for your body to unwind, let go and totally relax. When we are searching for peace outside of ourselves we will always be looking, peace is only found in the stillness within. Yoga is a wonderful way to introduce movement and the breath as it helps the body to relax effortlessly into a flow state.

Functional movement and being in the moment can make a big difference in the way your body feels!
