NATARAJA Bali Yoga Shala - Proper BREATHING “People come to my yoga shala with a need. They are seekers for many reasons. I am a servant of light in yoga and I share my knowledge during my classes to accomplish peace for the mind, love for the heart and light for the body. That is my vision, my goal.” ~ Acharya Yoga Nilesh R. Tiwari
Introducing 5 BASIC principles of YOGA
1. Proper exercise (Asanas)
2. PROPER BREATHING (Pranayama)
Pranayama or proper breathing connects the body with its battery, the solar plexus, where enormous reserves of energy can be stored and retrieved.
Through the breathing techniques of pranayama this energy is released. When we consciously regulate our breath, we are able to store and access a greater amount of vital life energy or prana. Most people use only a fraction of the lung capacity for breathing. They breathe superficially resulting in tension accumulating in the upper back and neck due to lack of oxygen. Deep yogic abdominal breathing can release deep seated toxins and tensions and even depression.
A person who possesses an abundance of prana radiates vitality and strength and works with efficiency , calmness and concentration. Pranayama ( breathing exercises) not only increase prana but also how to control it. There is a subtle connection between prana and the mind , by controlling and regulating the prana we control the mind. All diseases of the body can be destroyed at the root by regulating the prana which is the secret of healing. Acupuncture, shiatsu, spiritual healing etc. are all examples of the conscious or unconscious control of prana.
