Learn Restorative Yoga Poses : Importance of Breathing in Yoga


When you’re doing any yoga practice it?s really
important to focus on your breath and come in to center breath and Jean’s going to help
me how to come in to the center breathing breath. She’s taking an easy seated pose,
just something that’s very comfortable and lengthening up your spine, that’s the first
thing, rolling the shoulders back and letting your heart just float right up to the sky.
She’s going to reach out up the crown of the head just to lengthen that spine and that’s
going to increase respiratory capacity because this breathing is going to help your lower
your blood pressure. So she’s very gently going to inhale through the nose and she’s
going to bring that air all the way down into the deepest part of her lungs allowing the
diaphragm to press her abdomens forward. So and then, she’s going to bring that air up
into the center part of her ribs and her rib cages actually going to expand. Her bones
are going to move both forward and back. Then as she continues to inhale, it comes all the
way up to the collar bone, opening up to the upper part of your lung and then as she exhales,
she exhales in the opposite direction, from the tops of the lungs, bringing the ribs back
together, but, keeping her heart open, and then drawing her belly button way into the
spine so that she gets rid of that failed toxic energy that’s down in the deepest part
of your lung. If you can learn to breathe like this, you can swift from that fighter
fly it mode into relaxation mode and learn to take this breathing off your yoga mat into
the real world and you just might find you’d be much calmer and much peaceful person.
