Correct Breathing

1. Once we learn a breathing pattern, the body functions properly, and our health enhances. Pranic breathing is an internal exercise for our muscles and tissues. This breathing massages the body’s essential organs and is critical for those, who desire to enjoy excellent health. In Natural Cures pranic breathing is a unique gift from Mother Nature. If you regularly practice every day, may feel filled with a feeling of wellness and mental peace. Let us focus on the rhythm of the breath.

Rhythmic breathing has two different variations; in the beginning, when you inhale, count three and while exhaling count six. After a couple of weeks when you get used to this pattern, start holding the breath for three seconds before and after inhaling. After a month’s time, you will get used to the habit of pausing for a few seconds before and after the inhalation. It is the rhythmic pattern for breathing, and this particular breathing exercise is called Anulom Vilom or Nadi Shodhan. You will learn more when you study the entire chapter.

YOGA IS FOR PERFECT HEALTH

The population is increasing fast and the world looks more crowded. In spite of having tremendous achievements of modern civilization, today’s human beings seem less happy and tranquil than before, because our lives are going out of balance. The fast and materialistic life, rapidly increasing crowds and pollution, improper food, our overeating and munching all day long, irregular meals, lack of proper physical exercise and our negative attitudes are the reasons, which degenerate our health, disturb our minds and snatch our peace. With the practice of systematical yoga, we can once again start living in a natural way.

Once you start to practice yoga slow stretches, you will feel healthier, lighter and cheerful. You will experience a new person in you. Today’s materialistic world is full of mental stress and body tension. You are always running on a fast track, surrounded by people; never getting time to relax and complete all those projects you have already planned. The present speed and hyperactive actions of the modern world are damaging our tender minds. It is extremely important for us to get a deep understanding, patience, and control over the human monkey mind. The human mind is the one, most affected by environmental conditions. Meditation, breathing exercises and yoga postures are the only simple solutions. In this way, we can help slow down the detrimental, injurious and hurtful side effects and after effects, which are the result of environmental conditions and modern medicines. You may learn yoga postures, breathing exercises and meditation from a qualified yoga instructor for a couple of months, and then practice in the privacy of your home and heal your mind and body while spending no money. Yoga means perfect health.

Yoga’s aim is to develop through gradual stages a special quality of mind, which can view, perceive reality, and acquire self-knowledge through the healthy and systematically functioning of the mind, body, and emotions. Yoga makes lazy people active and busy people relaxed. It is for anyone above nine years of age. Over twenty-six years ago, when I started teaching yoga exercises and volunteered my services in a non-profit organization in California, yoga was not accepted as a remedial form in this country at one time. As discussed here in the US, some people thought meditation is yoga, others said continuous practicing concentration is yoga and still others believed that sitting in groups and humming together is yoga. No doubt, meditation is one aspect of yoga and while practicing yoga postures and breathing exercises (Pranayam), one improves his or her concentration power for sure.

Pranayam, breathing exercises enliven the dead cells in our body, sharpen memory, enhance our health, and shed off our bad habits automatically. This also boosts energy in the body, strengthens bones and increases longevity.

Meditation calms mind and body and eventually helps the soul to connect us with the Source. It also helps acquire divine knowledge. This happens only if we put our mind to work. When we focus and fix our mind on our breath while performing any yoga Kriya or a posture, our body follows and then our Soul joins too. In this way, yoga connects mind, body, and Soul.

Yoga means control on the mind, discipline over the body and preaches no religion at all. It is for the common person, whatever his, her profession, nationality, religion, color, age, or sex, helps enhance mental and physical health. Yoga is India’s ancient science of life, for perfect health, and now accepted by all over the world. Since people are sick and tired of modern pharmaceutical medicines; I want my American friends to benefit from my rich culture and spiritual heritage.
