Harmonious Breathing is a key element in coordinating the functions of the mind and body. It calms the mind, reduces tension in the body, and improves both physiological and cerebral functions.
If you eliminate the irregularities in your breathing, it has a beneficial effect on your mind. When breathing is smooth, continuous, slow and quiet, the body relaxes and the mind becomes calmer and more peaceful.
Controlled breathing is used in many relaxation methods, and is central to the ideals and goals of yoga. Its contribution to health and harmony has been known in Eastern cultures for many centuries, and is now widely recognised.
Harmonious Breathing takes its source in Yantra Yoga (one of the oldest methods of Yoga taught in the world, transcribed in the 8th century) and differs from other Yoga by the integration of movement and breathing.
The benefits of complete breathing have been understood for centuries, particularly in Eastern cultures.
More recently, the fundamental role of correct breathing techniques has been the subject of further study, and its many physical and emotional benefits are more widely appreciated than ever.
Correct breathing techniques replicate the breathing rhythms found when people are relaxed and contented, and the mind recognises these cues and becomes calmer and more grounded as a result.
Harmonious breathing fully engages all the parts of the body involved in the breathing process, from the diaphragm to the back muscles. It gently exercises these muscles, flushes out the lymphatic system, and improves the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide taken in by the lungs.
With body and mind in better balance, you sleep more deeply, are better rested and have more energy. The general feeling of wellbeing is complemented by the ability to work harder, and live better.
