Our breath serves as the strongest connection between our mind and body and corresponds to how we feel at any given time. For instance, someone focused and calm will typically breathe deeply from their abdomen and have a regular breathing pattern. In contrast, when we are angry, worried or agitated, we experience shallow breathing from the chest with an erratic breathing pattern.
Mindful (also called conscious or yogic) breathing is a powerful meditation technique. Breathing consciously is the essence of yoga as it assists us in connecting with the subtle energy within. When we exercise control over our breathing, we also exercise control over our thoughts and how we react to various situations in life. It is through the breath that we can navigate different levels of consciousness. Moreover, breathing consciously has a biological effect on our mental, emotional, and physical state.
This is why it is crucial and heavily emphasized in both yoga and meditation to practice becoming aware of our breath and honing our ability to focus using our breath. Mindful breathing techniques can help you stay present, control your thoughts and emotions, and promote calmness (both mentally and physically).
At Yoga With Yogi we are excited to introduce the much needed, though relatively unknown, course which trains you to harness the power of breath and experience body-mind harmony. Since conscious breathing is what causes the movement of energy and helps the body relax, our main goal is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate challenging mental narratives and distractions. When we breathe deeply, we can open ourselves to feel more emotion, as well as be more in tune with what’s happening in our bodies.
Conscious (or yogic) breathing is all about being aware of every breath we take. By making an automatic behavior deliberate, we begin to affect our neurological programming through a state of intentional awareness. This conscious breathing affects us biologically, emotionally and physically.
You will learn and practice mindful breathing techniques that will help you feel more energized. These deep breathing exercises are the perfect ways to increase your energy while exerting less effort and breathing less than usual. but in a calm, focused manner.
You will also learn to prevent common breathing issues such as diaphragm inhibition, and hyperventilating under stress, which can reduce the amount of oxygen reaching your brain and your cells.
