Inspiration & Breathing Exercises

BASIC BREATHING TECHNIQUE

Sit down or lie down in a quiet location, eyes closed. Breathe in through the nose for the count of 4. Notice when you breathe in the air is cool and when you breathe out the air is warm. Start off with 5 minutes and increase to 10 minutes.

Equal Breathing

To start, inhale for a count of four, then exhale for a count of four (all through the nose, which adds a natural resistance to the breath). More advanced yogis can aim for six to eight counts per breath with the same goal in mind: Calm the nervous system, increase focus, and reduce stress.

Abdominal Breathing

With one hand on the chest and the other on the belly, take a deep breath in through the nose, ensuring the diaphragm (not the chest) inflates with enough air to create a stretch in the lungs. The goal: Six to 10 deep, slow breaths per minute for 10 minutes each day to experience immediate reductions to heart rate and blood pressure. Keep at it for six to eight weeks, and those benefits might stick around even longer.

OVERCOMING OBESITY

Two of every three Americans are considered to be overweight or obese. Yet overcoming Obesity not as difficult as you might think.
